Disney+ Is Reportedly Making an Ahsoka Series
Have you heard the latest word on the rumor mill? Ahsoka Tano is reportedly getting her own series! Fans of Star Wars’ Ahsoka will surely be cheering at the thought of her getting her own Disney+ series.
For those that don’t know, or simply want a refresher, Ahsoka Tano started out her career as the Padawan of the one and only Luke Skywalker. You can probably imagine how that ultimately went. But that surely didn’t stop fans from falling for her.
Her tale didn’t end there. Since her role in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Ahsoka has had a lot going on in her life. She made several appearances on Star Wars: Rebels, and now she’s set to appear in season 2 of The Mandalorian as well (being played by Rosario Dawson).
It seems pretty obvious by now that Disney is focusing many projects towards their new platform, Disney+. That goes doubly so after the success of the first season of The Mandalorian. And with Ahsoka’s inclusion in that series, it feels almost natural that she’ll be getting a spin-off series of her own.
It’s worth noting that this wouldn’t be the only Star Wars series being developed for Disney+. Aside from the obvious (The Mandalorian), Obi-Wan Kenobi is also getting his own series, and then there’s a Rogue One prequel in the works.
The Reports Thus Far
Since Ahsoka’s series hasn’t been officially announced yet, we should take any and all news with a grain of salt. Still, it’s difficult not to be excited about the possibility. Fandomwire reports that the Ahsoka series is underway and that it will be set post-Rebels.
That means that fan favorites such as Hera, Chopper, and Zeb are all free to make an appearance. Again, something that is reportedly going to happen. As for what it’s about? The search for Ezra, naturally. Who wouldn’t love to see a conclusion to that plot arc? Bonus points: if this is true, that means that Thrawn will once again make his way into the series.
According to the report, Dave Filoni is the force and creative mind behind the series. If that is true, fans have all the reason in the world to be excited right now.
