What is the Ahsoka release date? Star Wars has come a long way since a humble farmboy saved the galaxy.
Since the days of the Rebellion and the Galactic Empire in Original Trilogy, the lore of Star Wars has expanded to such a degree that it can often be hard to keep up with the Star Wars movies and TV series which are coming thick and fast in the form of animated series and lots of live-action adventures too.
Among the swathes of new Star Wars series set to come to Disney Plus is Ahsoka. Ahsoka will follow the adventures of ex-Padawan to Anakin Skywalker and Jedi soon after we meet her in The Mandalorian. But what exactly can we expect when the Star Wars: Ahsoka release date arrives? Here’s everything we know about Ahsoka’s return so far.
What Is the Star Wars: Ahsoka release date?
At Star Wars Celebration 2022, it was revealed that Ahsoka would premiere on Disney Plus in 2023. However, despite being in 2023 we still haven’t got a more precise release date.
Fear not, though. With The Mandalorian season 3 release date coming quickly down the tracks, it’s likely that Ahsoka will be the next Star Wars series after that. This means that an Ahsoka release date might come around soon after season 3 of Din Djarin’s adventures begin to air.
What Is The Star Wars: Ahsoka Plot?
In her appearance in The Mandalorian, Ahsoka mentioned that she was on the hunt for fan-favourite baddie Grand Admiral Thrawn, who vanished along with Jedi Ezra Bridger in Star Wars Rebels.
Out of this world: Best sci-fi series
Set in the distant aftermath of the fall of Emperor Palpatine, it’s thought that the show will continue Ahsoka’s hunt, searching for the Star Wars villain and dishing out some punishment along the way. Sabine Wren will likely serve on the assist if this ends up being the show’s plot, and with her, Thrawn and Bridger yet to make their debut in live-action, Ahsoka is bound to be a real treat for fans of Rebels.
But that might not be all that gets focused on during the series. Some fans have pointed out that the strange, spacey images hanging around Ahsoka’s name in the show’s logo might be hinting at the World Between Worlds.

For the uninitiated, the World Between Worlds is a bizarre realm in which time moves differently, used by Ahsoka to make a bold escape from Darth Vader in Rebels. It’s perfectly feasible that it could make its appearance in the Ahsoka series, and it’d be the first-ever use of time travel in live-action Star Wars.
How will the Ahsoka plot fit into the rest of the Star Wars universe? In a recent interview with Empire (via ComicBook.com), actors Rosario Dawson and Natasha Liu Bordizzo confirmed that Ahsoka will be a “standalone chapter” in the Star Wars universe that will allow new fans and old to enjoy the show.
Who’s in the Star Wars: Ahsoka cast?
Rosario Dawson will be returning as Ahsoka, reprising her role as Ahsoka who first appeared in live-action in The Mandalorian’s ‘Chapter 13: The Jedi’ episode.
Hayden Christensen, the Sith lord Anakin Skywalker himself, is set to appear as well. He could in some Clone Wars flashbacks, or he could appear as he uses the Force to sense Ahsoka due to the pair’s close connections. We’ll just have to see what comes of the appearance, but either way, it looks like Ahsoka’s going to have to contend with her past at some point.
Sabine Wren will be making the jump to live-action from Rebels, and will be played by Natasha Liu Bordizzo, and Ezra Bridger has also been cast with Eman Esfandi taking on the role. It’s also heavily rumoured that Hera Syndulla, and Grand Admiral Thrawn have already been cast which makes sense with what we know of the plot.

Who’s Making Star Wars: Ahsoka?
Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau are attached to Ahsoka are showrunners. With Filoni’s co-creation of the character alongside George Lucas and Favreau’s talents on The Mandalorian, they’ve already more than proved that they’re up to the task.
If their prior work is anything to go on, then Ahsoka should shape up to be something special. It has also been revealed that the co-director of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Peter Ramsey, is taking the reins of the show as director of at least one episode.
Is there a trailer for Ahsoka series?
As it stands, there is no Ahsoka trailer yet. But, don’t give up all hope just yet.
You can expect a trailer for Ahsoka to drop very soon, because it’s likely that it could coincide with either the beginning or end of The Mandalorian season 3.
