Let’s get to your most burning question first, shall we? No exact date has been announced for Filoni’s live-action series, but it will come as soon as next year alongside The Mandalorian season three. During Star Wars Celebration in May 2022, Dawson told fans she had literally just come from the Ahsoka set to be at the Anaheim convention for the Mando+ panel. So it’s probably safe to say that Ahsoka will be released on Disney+ after The Mandalorian season-three premiere in February 2023.

Aside from Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka, Dave Filoni officially announced Natasha Liu Bordizzo has joined the cast as Sabine Wren, another prominent character from Star Wars Rebels (voiced by Tiya Sircar) at Star Wars Celebration. Reports from The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline have confirmed that Ray Stevenson and Ivanna Sakhno will be in the series. Stevenson is rumored to be playing a villain, possibly an admiral for the rising First Order, while Sakhno’s role is unknown. There are also rumors that Hayden Christensen may return as Darth Vader for Ahsoka, according to THR. Shortly after the news broke in October 2021, Dawson commented on her Instagram with the caption “Skyguy … They know!!! See you soon, Snips.” (Skyguy and Snips are their character’s nicknames for each other in The Clone Wars.) She quickly deleted the post. Dawson later told Vanity Fair for its June 2022 Star Wars cover story that she deleted the post after someone from Star Wars HQ emailed her saying, “You might want to take that down.”

Ewan McGregor pretty nonchalantly confirmed in the VF cover story that his wife, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, would join Ahsoka. “My partner, Mary, is doing that Star Wars series with Rosario and she’s about to start,” he spilled. “Our little boy has been born into this massive Star Wars family.” Though, unfortunately, McGregor didn’t go as far as
