The highly anticipated Star Wars series, Ahsoka, has begun filming. The official Star Wars twitter account shared a set photo for the spin-off series with director Dave Filoni’s hat hanging on the director’s chair.

The series serves as a spin-off to the popular The Mandalorian series that began in late 2019. Ahsoka Tano (portrayed by actress Rosario Dawson) appeared in the show’s second season in 2020 and received a positive reception. Shortly afterwards in December of 2020 it was announced that she would receive her own spin-off series.
The series is set to feature Dawson as Ahsoka with Natasha Liu Bordizzo appearing as Sebine Wren. The story will supposedly follow Ashoka and Sebine as they search for the whereabouts of Ezra Bridger, picking up after the finale of Star Wars: Rebels.
Hayden Christiansen is also set to appear as Anakin Skywalker, most likely as a Force Ghost if the series does take place after Rebels. Ivanna Sakhno, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ray Stevenson are also set to appear in currently unnamed roles.
In addition to that former Ahsoka actress, Ashley Eckstein, expressed her desire to appear in at least one episode of the series in either a cameo or small role. Hopefully she will be able to make some sort of cameo, like as another Togruta.
Ahsoka is the second spin-off series in the now dubbed “Mando-Verse”. The first being the Book of Boba Fett series that released earlier this year. Sadly the reception to that series was mixed, leaving some concerned for both The Mandalorian Season 3 and the Ahsoka series. Hopefully with Dave Filoni having direct control over the series things will remain consistent.
The series is set to release on Disney Plus sometime in 2023 with a total of six episodes.
