New Star Wars Series ‘Ahsoka’ Gets Disney+ Release Date and New Trailer


At “Star Wars Celebration 2023” in April, Disney+ announced a vague August release date for the newest Star Wars series, “Ahsoka,” and now we know the exact date.

The Details

We now know that the streamer has set August 23, 2023, for the debut of “Ahsoka.”

This new Star Wars series stars actress Rosario Dawson as former Jedi knight Ahsoka Tano, who is of the Togruta species.

The character first appeared in the animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” Voiced by Ashley Eckstein, she evolved from a headstrong student of Anakin Skywalker to a formidable warrior and leader, all before leaving the Jedi Order.

Ahsoka would return in the “Star Wars Rebels” animated series, where she joined forces with the Ghost crew of rebels (including Sabine and Hera), and dueled her fallen master.

The animated “Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi” series on Disney+ examined her childhood, telling her origin series.

And Dawson first portrayed Ahsoka Tano in Chapter 13 of “The Mandalorian,” subtitled “The Jedi,” where Din Djarin had sought her out in the hopes that she would train his ward, Grogu, in the ways of the Force.

While remaining an ally and friend, she declined in order to continue her own mission to locate Grand Admiral Thrawn.

The Series

“Ahsoka” is set in roughly the same time frame after the fall of the Empire as “The Mandalorian.”

The character will be joined by her Rebels crew: Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo), Hera Syndulla (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfandi), and everyone’s favorite grumpy droid, Chopper.


Also appearing in the series are Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly), a lightsaber-wielding Sith Lord adversary named Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson, who sadly passed after filming), his acolyte Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakhno), Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen), and the ancient droid Huyang (voiced by David Tennant).


The series is written by Dave Filoni, who executive produces alongside Jon Favreau, Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson, and Carrie Beck. Karen Gilchrist serves as a co-executive producer.

The list of directors for the eight episode first season includes Dave Filoni, Steph Green (“Watchmen”), Peter Ramsey (“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” “The Mandalorian”), Jennifer Getzinger (“Westworld,” “Jessica Jones”), Geeta Patel (“House of the Dragon”) and Rick Famuyiwa (“The Mandalorian”).

New Trailer

Along with the date announcement, a new teaser trailer has been released.
