Star Wars Releases Recap of the Journey to Ahsoka

Star Wars fans' long-awaited wish for Ahsoka Tano's (Rosario Dawson) live-action continuation will finally be fulfilled with the debut of Star Wars: Ahsoka on Disney+ next month. The beloved former Padawan's journey from animation to tie-in media and beyond has been a remarkable one, and a newly-released Star Wars trailer chronicles this incredible trajectory. The trailer, provided below, takes viewers on a captivating ride, showcasing Rosario Dawson's initial interviews addressing fan speculation about the character, as well as offering behind-the-scenes glimpses of the highly anticipated live-action Disney+ exclusive series.

"It's truly exhilarating," shared Dave Filoni about the process of writing the series in a previous interview with Empire. "It's something you've envisioned for a long time. And then, when the moment arrives, it's almost surprising that it's happening... I had envisioned this adventure for Ahsoka for quite some time, and it's fascinating to see how it has evolved. Years ago, I couldn't have imagined that it would be intertwined with characters like Din Djarin or a Yoda-like child. It's been a valuable lesson for me, learning how collaborating with other creatives like Jon Favreau can bring such richness and depth to your work."

How Many Episodes Will Star Wars: Ahsoka Have?

According to the official confirmation from Disney+, Star Wars: Ahsoka will consist of eight episodes. Notably, these episodes are expected to have slightly longer runtimes compared to its companion series, Star Wars: The Mandalorian.

In a recent interview with Collider, Dave Filoni discussed the episode lengths, stating, "It's an interesting question. It's pretty relative when you're working on something like this. One thing Jon [Favreau] and I strongly believe in is maintaining a brisk pace and keeping the story moving. It's definitely a faster and more intense approach compared to George [Lucas's style]. My episodes tend to start out quite long since I've written them all myself, so they are somewhat distinct. For instance, the episode 'The Jedi' required tight and fast pacing to execute the action effectively, resulting in a shorter runtime. However, I would say the episodes fall within a similar range as those of The Mandalorian."

Filoni hinted, "Perhaps, on average, slightly longer, but to be honest, I'm not entirely sure about their current status in the most recent edits I've worked on. However, I would say they fall within the same range."

What Will Star Wars: Ahsoka Be About?

Star Wars fans can rejoice as the beloved hero Ahsoka Tano makes her highly anticipated return in the new Disney+ series. Portrayed by Rosario Dawson, Ahsoka takes the spotlight in Star Wars: Ahsoka, set to premiere on the streaming platform in August. The series picks up after the events of The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, where Ahsoka was seen embarking on a mission to locate Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) and aiding Luke Skywalker in training Grogu. Joining Ahsoka on her new quest are her trusted allies Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo) and Hera Syndulla (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), as they set out to track down Thrawn, who vanished to the farthest corners of space following a clash with Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfandi). Developed by Lucasfilm's acclaimed duo, Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, Star Wars: Ahsoka promises to be an exciting addition to the live-action series roster.

Mark your calendars, as Star Wars: Ahsoka is slated to premiere on Disney+ on August 23rd.
