The anticipation continues to build for Ahsoka, which Star Wars fans hope to be the next great live-action series on Disney+. Certainly, the pieces are all there with Rosario Dawson starring as Ahsoka Tano, the former Jedi Knight-turned-Rebel following her appearances in Star Wars Rebels and The Mandalorian. While we already had a trailer released a few weeks ago, today brings brand-new footage as well as an official release date for this summer.
Titled “Begin”, the teaser is heavy on Star Wars Rebels flavor, with Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla both featuring heavily. The series finds Ahsoka on the hunt for the missing Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfandi), who went missing along with Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen).
Here’s the brief synopsis: Set after the fall of the Empire, “Star Wars: Ahsoka” follows the former Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy.
Ahsoka will finally make its way to Disney+ on August 23rd.
