If you’re a Disney+ subscriber, your streaming life has probably looked very superhero lately. In the past year alone, we’ve seen Marvel’s WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and What… If? all hit the platform. (You can find and/or argue with our rankings here.)
Amidst all of the costumes and capes and energy beams shooting out of peoples’ hands, you might’ve forgotten that the Mouse House holds the keys to another mammoth universe: Star Wars. Since The Mandalorian transferred parenting duties from Mando to Luke Skywalker in December 2020, we surprisingly haven’t seen a live-action Star Wars project hit Disney+. Don’t worry—the drought won’t last long. If all goes well, we could see The Book of Boba Fett, Season Three of The Mandalorian, and Obi-Wan Kenobi all release within a year.
After that? Ahsoka. If you’ll remember, Rosario Dawson’s live-action take on Ahsoka Tano—who was introduced in the last season of The Mandalorian—will be getting her own series, too. Not only that, but The Hollywood Reporter shared the news that none other than Hayden Christensen, who played Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, will join the action. Here’s everything we know about Ahsoka so far.
When Will Ahsoka Be Released?
In addition to the Hayden Christensen news, The Hollywood Reporter divulged that production on Ahsoka will begin in early 2022. That likely means that we won’t see Rosario Dawson (save for a potential cameo elsewhere) until after the three above-mentioned Star Wars projects debut, putting Ahsoka on track for a 2023 release.

What Will Ahsoka Be About?
The closest thing we have to a plot description—aside from pure speculation—is a rumored peek at what direction Ahsoka will go when it hits Disney+. Here’s what scooper Daniel Richtman reported:
Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) is on the hunt for the evil Grand Admiral Thrawn in the hope it will help her locate the missing Ezra Bridger, the young Jedi that disappeared with Thrawn many years ago. Based on characters from the “Star Wars” franchise. A spinoff of the TV series “The Mandalorian”.
The leak sounds about right. Thanks to Disney, we know that Ahsoka will also take place five years after The Return of the Jedi, like The Mandalorian. So it’s fitting that Tano’s next adventure will see her continue her journey from The Clone Wars and Rebels animated series, as well as her brief stint on The Mandalorian. As for how our man Anakin—who, notably, mentored Tano himself—will fit in? Barring a surprise on the level of Baby Yoda eating those fish eggs, he’ll probably show up in either flashback sequences, or as a Force ghost. With Christensen also confirmed to appear in the Obi-Wan series, his story really could go anywhere.
Darth Vader aside, maybe we’ll get lucky and get a reunion between Baby Yoda and Ahsoka Tano, where the kiddo can learn a few new tricks. Crazier things have happened in Star Wars lore.
