Hello there! I’m sure you’re eager to get into the Ahsoka news, but before we continue I kindly ask you to consider showing your support for my work by tipping me via my Ko-Fi page here. Tips are quite rare around these parts, but I assure you no matter how big or small, each tip is deeply appreciated. Now, let’s talk about the Ahsoka news!
The Mandalorian was a global phenomenon, catapulting its characters, namely Grogu and Din Djarin, into the public eye with the series also receiving great commercial and critical success. As the second season rolled around, the series re-introduced some fan-favourite characters including Boba Fett and Ahsoka Tano, with both receiving spin-off series. The Book of Boba Fett released its first season at the tail end of 2021 to commercial success, and with Ahsoka in post-production, I’m sure Lucasfilm and Disney are hoping to continue the success of the ‘MandoVerse’ series.
Disney and Lucasfilm have remained tight lipped on when fans can expect to see the Ahsoka series led by Rosario Dawson. It’s been confirmed publicly various times that the series would debut within this year, along with the third season of The Mandalorian, and the Jon Watts (Spider-Man: No Way Home) created series, Skeleton Crew. Earlier this year, Disney released a brief trailer showcasing projects set to arrive on their streaming service, Disney+, this year, with most of the content set to arrive by or during the Summer. However this appears not to be the case for Ahsoka.
Ahsoka Tano herself, Rosario Dawson, revealed to The Today Show that the Ahsoka series will “probably come out in the Fall” and that her focus in the summer will be promoting the Disney movie, The Haunted Mansion, which also stars Owen Wilson and Danny Devito. The Haunted Mansion was initially slated to release on August 10th, but was pushed up to July 28th last week with a trailer expected any day now.
Elsewhere it’s being reported that two Ahsoka LEGO sets are set to be released on an unspecified date in September. Usually LEGO sets for the live-action Star Wars series release months later as is the case for The Mandalorian season three. The third season of The Mandalorian debuts on Disney+ on March 1st, but LEGO sets based on the season don’t hit shelves until May. This appears to not be the case for Ahsoka, so I wonder if the sets are releasing during the same month as the series releases, or slightly earlier.
Now here’s little of what I’ve heard regarding this matter, but I must preface that I’ve not got confirmation of any of this, it’s rumours I’ve been hearing recently. I was told that the trailer for Ahsoka would most likely be debuting at Star Wars Celebration in April – I know, it sounds like a no brainer. In addition I’d heard that Ahsoka would likely release after two Marvel Studios six episode television series, Secret Invasion, which I’ve heard, as have others, is currently aiming to release in May, and Loki season two, which will release much later in the Summer (you can likely guess which month). So it comes as no surprise to me that Ahsoka would debut after both series in the Fall. And for what it’s worth, currently I still believe Skeleton Crew will release by the years end.
Im sure some fans will be disappointed that we’re seemingly having to wait until the Autumn for Ahsoka to debut on our screens, but from what I’ve heard and past credible leaks, it sounds as if the series will be worth the wait. Ahsoka, Skeleton Crew and the third season of The Mandalorian will all stream exclusively on Disney+, with the latter releasing next week.
