UPDATE: During Thursday’s Disney Investor Day virtual event, it was confirmed that Rosario Dawson will star in an upcoming Ahsoka Tano solo series. The show will stream exclusively on Disney+ and go into production later next year.
It was recently confirmed that Rosario Dawson will appear as Ahsoka Tano in the second season of The Mandalorian. But it seems this may not be her only live-action appearance in the Star Wars universe. According to. Jeremy Conrad at Star Wars Unity, a live-action Ahsoka Tano series is in very early development.
It has been heavily speculated that a spinoff series would result from Dawson’s appearance in the upcoming season of The Mandalorian. Now it appears such a show is in early development.
It was hinted at by Bob Iger, the Executive Chairman of The Walt Disney Company, that the studio would spinoff characters from The Mandalorian into their own series.
“The priority in the next few years is television with The Mandalorian Season 2 coming in October, and then more coming from The Mandalorian thereafter, including the possibility of infusing it with more characters and the possibility of taking those characters in their own direction in terms of series.”
Given the live-action introduction of Ahsoka Tano, it seems inevitable her character will appear after The Mandalorian on Disney+.
It has been rumored that an animated Star Wars Rebels sequel was in development, but it is not known if this is connected to Ahsoka’s potential series.
