First “Ahsoka” Trailer Reveals Rosario Dawson-led “Star Wars” Series on Disney+

Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano is one of the more intriguing characters in the Star Wars canon, and at long last, she’s got her own series. The first trailer for Ahsoka is here, revealing Dawson’s live-action take on a character who first appeared in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars (voiced by Ashley Eckstein), at which point Dawson stepped as Ahsoka in season two of The Mandalorian. When Din Djarin met her during his adventures in season two, she was searching for Grand Admiral Thrawn. In Ahsoka, it seems as if her search will finally come to fruition. Danger surely follows.

The series follows the rebel Jedi as she charts a new course across a galaxy that’s starting to whisper with fresh troubles. A few of the folks Ahsoka will run across include Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo), a Mandalorian who is every bit the rebel as Ahsoka is. Another character that will factor prominently into the series along for the ride is the Jedi Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfandi)—he’d gone missing at the end of the animated series Star Wars: Rebels, and Ahsoka and Sabine had set out to find him. There is a good chance that Ahsoka will pick these two up on their mission.

Ahsoka also stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Captain Hera Syndulla, Ivanna Sakhno, and Ray Stevenson, who voiced the Mandalorian Gar Saxon in Clone Wars and Rebels and appears to be playing a villain here. The new series also boasts a very big name in the Star Wars galaxy—Hayden Christensen returns as Darth Vader, fresh off his stunning performance in Obi-Wan Kenobi. What’s interesting here is that Ahsoka is set after Darth Vader’s death, so he either appears as a Force Ghost or in a flashback.

Check out the trailer below. Ahsoka arrives on Disney+ in August:
