Ahsoka was first introduced to fans in the 2008 film Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Later she became an important character in the Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels animated series. A former padawan of Anakin’s, Ahsoka saw her master fall to the dark side. She is now one of the few remaining Jedi in the galaxy.
The new spinoff series will focus on Ahsoka’s quest to find Grand Admiral Thrawn, a plot point touched on in The Mandalorian. Rosario Dawson will return to reprise the role with Dave Filoni as writer and Jon Favreau as executive producer.
