The distinctions between the various Star Wars mediums have blurred in the years since The Mandalorian debuted on Disney+. Lucasfilm Executive Dave Filoni’s characters evolved from animated The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels to live-action on Disney+. And, in 2023, Ahsoka Tano, Filoni’s most popular heroine, will have her own Disney+ series titled Ahsoka.
Ahsoka Tano made appearances in both The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett prior to this series. However, prior to that, the former Padawan appeared in Star Wars: Rebels, where she not only confronted her former master but also assisted the Rebels crew in their struggle against the Empire.
While Ahsoka is set after Return of the Jedi and within the Mandoverse, it’s no secret that her solo series will incorporate the surviving Rebels family; and today, fans are getting a first glimpse at their live-action reunion.

At Star Wars Celebration 2022, the first teaser trailer for the Ahsoka on Disney+ was revealed, providing a first glimpse at the characters from the Star Wars: Rebels cartoon series in live-action.
The footage begins with a behind-the-scenes look at Hera Syndulla and Ahsoka. This is followed by a shot of what appears to be the interior of the Ghost, and then a hand appears to be attempting to use the Force to grasp a cup.
Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka is shown removing her hood as her hand appears to touch markings cut into the ground, coupled with a close-up of a droid that resembles Huyang.
The teaser concludes with a back view of Sabine Wren, played by Natasha Liu Bordizzo, and the same Rebels crew mural that served as the series’ ending.
What will the Ahsoka series be called?
Star Wars: Ahsoka
The forthcoming live-action television limited series Star Wars: Ahsoka, also known simply as Ahsoka, was announced on December 10, 2020. It will star Rosario Dawson and will be available only on Disney+. Dave Filoni will write it, and he and Jon Favreau will produce it.
Before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and A New Hope, Star Wars: Rebels aired for four seasons from 2014 to 2018. Recurring characters from The Clone Wars, like as Captain Rex, Maul, and Ahsoka Tano, functioned as a type of spin-off for this series.
Pilot Hera Syndulla, Jedi Padawan survivor Kanan Jarrus, artist and Mandalorian fighter Sabine Wren, Lasat warrior Garazeb “Zeb” Orrelios, and young Jedi-in-training Ezra Bridger comprised the main group of Rebels.
In addition to Darth Vader and the Grand Inquisitor, the Rebels frequently battled Grand Admiral Thrawn, who, along with Ezra, vanished into hyperspace at the conclusion of the series, leaving fans to wonder about their locations.
Sabine and Ahsoka will be searching for Thrawn and Ezra, as confirmed by both the Star Wars Rebels epilogue and Ahsoka Tano’s presence in The Mandalorian. And, based on the recently released footage, it appears that this Disney+ series will do just that.
The series will also explore the World Between Worlds, which was established in Star Wars: Rebels and looks to be represented in the logo. Recent set photographs indicate the presence of Jedi temple ruins, which may factor into the teaser’s graphics.
