We get our first glimpse of Rosario Dawnson as Ahsoka in the upcoming Disney+ series.

Ahsoka Tano is one of the more popular characters from the Star Wars franchise. She was central to the Clone Wars saga and Star Wars Rebels. Anakin Skywalker’s Jedi Padawan has seen limited live-action appearances since her introduction in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. However, that is about to change as we will be getting a live-action TV series centered on Ahsoka.

Disney+ just released a teaser for its slate of shows on the streaming platform. We saw glimpses of Loki Season 2, Peter Pan & Wendy, and the ongoing Mandalorian series. One brief scene from the trailer gave fans a first look at the highly anticipated Ahsoka TV show.

The short scene marks the first time that we are seeing actual footage from the upcoming series. The trailer showed off Ahsoka Tano played by Rosario Dawson. It’s a great first look but some fans would surely whine at the length of her part in the trailer. Hopefully, we will get a longer trailer for Ahsoka soon.

Dawson looked incredible from that very brief image seen in the trailer. Lucasfilm did an amazing job with her makeup and costume design.

This is the first time that we see a profile shot of Dawson as the Togruta Jedi Ahsoka for the series. Earlier this year, early footage from the upcoming series was shown at the Star Wars Celebration event. However, the video showed only the back side of Ahsoka and Hera Syndulla.

What we know about the Ahsoka TV series

Rosario Dawson will be reprising her role as Ahsoka.

The plot details for Ahsoka have been kept under wraps over at Lucasfilm. We can speculate that she is on a quest to find and defeat Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Thrawn was a major antagonist in Star Wars Rebels and commander of the Seventh Fleet. Ahsoka mentioned that she was hunting down the Grand Admiral during her duel with Morgan Elsbeth in The Mandalorian.

Toward the end of Star Wars Rebels, Thrawn and Ezra Bridger disappeared into hyperspace as they fought on the Chimaera I-Class Star Destroyer. Ahsoka’s hunt for Thrawn may mean that Ezra also survived the battle aboard the ship.

Dave Filoni will be leading the Ahsoka TV series as writer and showrunner. Jon Favreau and Kathleen Kennedy will be producing the show alongside Filoni.

Hayden Christensen will be reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker for the TV series. Natasha Liu Bordizzo will portray Sabine Wren in the upcoming Disney+ series. Eman Esfandi will be playing Ezra Bridger in the show.

Ahsoka is set to premiere on Disney+ in 2023.
