Star Wars: Ahsoka Star Confirms Series Timeline


Star Wars: Ahsoka is set to premiere on Disney+ next month, and fans are eagerly awaiting new footage from the highly-anticipated series. The show has generated significant buzz as it brings beloved animated characters to life in live-action, including Ahsoka Tano portrayed by Rosario Dawson, Hera Syndulla played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Sabine Wren portrayed by Natasha Liu Bordizzo, and Thrawn portrayed by Lars Mikkelsen. While many fans assumed that the series would take place after the events of Star Wars Rebels, Bordizzo recently clarified where the new show fits in with the other Star Wars shows on Disney+.

"I think it's hard not to feel part of something bigger. Ahsoka runs along the same timeline as The Mandalorian Season 3, and the shows are all interconnected. There are just so many parallels," Bordizzo revealed to Games Radar.

Showrunner Dave Filoni previously shared his thoughts on the timeline, stating, "I tend to think, as we've been working on The Mandalorian and then writing Ahsoka, and then Jon Watts came in with Skeleton Crew, there is an entire time period that is post-Return of the Jedi. And I look at that time period, which is before The Force Awakens, as around 30 years of time. When you look at the original trilogy, it's a much shorter span of time that those three movies cover. What I like is that we're gradually building an ecosystem of characters, politics, and events in the post-Return of the Jedi era. And this may or may not expand in a larger way as we add more shows and characters to it."

Will The Mandalorian Tie In With Ahsoka and Skeleton Crew?

Star Wars: Ahsoka and Star Wars: Skeleton Crew are both currently in development, and while they are expected to have more standalone narratives, show creator Jon Favreau aims to ensure that they remain interconnected. In an interview with BFM TV (via Variety), Favreau revealed that these new shows will all unfold within a similar timeframe.

"Yes, I've already written Season 4," Favreau shared. "We need to have a clear vision of where we're going to tell a complete story. Dave [Filoni] and I have already outlined the overarching plot, and then we gradually write each episode. I was actually writing it during post-production. It all has to feel like a seamless continuation and one cohesive story." He added, "[Dave's] working on Ahsoka, which I am producing alongside him. He is the writer and showrunner for that series. To understand what's happening in other shows... Skeleton Crew, they all take place within the same Star Wars timeframe. There are many things we have to keep in mind and also references to build upon from previous seasons of The Mandalorian."

What Is Ahsoka About?

The highly anticipated Star Wars series, Star Wars: Ahsoka, is set to premiere on Disney+ in August. Starring Rosario Dawson, the show follows the beloved hero Ahsoka Tano as she embarks on a new journey. Taking place after the events of The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka is seen searching for Grand Admiral Thrawn, portrayed by Lars Mikkelsen, and aiding Luke Skywalker in training Grogu. Joining Ahsoka on her mission are her trusted allies Sabine Wren, played by Natasha Liu Bordizzo, and Hera Syndulla, portrayed by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Together, they seek to locate Thrawn, who vanished into the depths of space following a confrontation with Ezra Bridger, portrayed by Eman Esfandi. Created by the talented duo of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, Star Wars: Ahsoka is the latest live-action series to come from Lucasfilm.
