The plot of the series takes place five years after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. This suggests the series is set in the same universe as the upcoming Star Wars: The Mandalorian spin-off series, Rangers of the New Republic.
It stars Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano, a former Jedi Padawan who is now on a quest to find Grand Admiral Thrawn
It is created by Dave Filoni, who also created the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. Dave Filoni is a veteran of the Star Wars franchise.
The series was originally conceived as a film, but it was later changed to a television series. This is most likely due to the popularity of The Mandalorian, a live-action Star Wars series that shown that there is a market for Star Wars programming on television.
The series will explore Ahsoka's journey to find Grand Admiral Thrawn and her continuing search for her place in the galaxy.
The Ahsoka series has been a hit for Disney+, and a second season has been ordered. This indicates that the series will remain an important element of the Star Wars universe.
The series also stars Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka's former master. Hayden Christensen reprises his role as Anakin Skywalker from the Star Wars prequels. This will be the first time that Christensen has played Anakin since Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith in 2005.
