• Ahsoka’s upcoming show is highly anticipated and important to the Star Wars universe, and it celebrates the character’s evolution since her debut in Clone Wars.
  • The Ahsoka series promises an epic-scale adventure that is unlike anything seen in previous live-action Star Wars shows, exploring unexplored corners of the Star Wars canon.
  • The return of Grand Admiral Thrawn in Ahsoka potentially sets the stage for an epic saga and establishes him as a major villain in the Star Wars universe.

A new Ahsoka promo narrated by Ahsoka Tano actor Rosario Dawson lists the top five reasons to watch Star Wars’ upcoming show. More than 15 years will have passed since the Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie introduced Ahsoka by the time the Ahsoka series premiers. Ahsoka Tano has come a long way since her debut in Clone Wars, to the point Ahsoka is one of Star Wars’ most anticipated and important releases in years.

As Ahsoka’s release date approaches, a previously recorded Ahsoka promo has been shared by Star Wars UK on Twitter, and it sees Rosario Dawson listing the top five reasons to be excited about the show.

Dawson lists “galactic mysteries,” “dark conspiracies,” “old friends,” “new enemies,” and Ahsoka herself as the biggest reasons for audiences to watch Ahsoka. Each of those reasons is illustrated by scenes from Ahsoka, teasing the scope and the scale of the show. For example, “Galactic mysteries” can refer to the mysterious Jedi temple Ahsoka is visiting; “old friends” refers to the Star Wars Rebels characters in Ahsoka, and “new enemies” describes Shin and Baylan Skoll.

Ahsoka Is Promising An Adventure On An Epic Scale


The Ahsoka trailers and other promotional materials are teasing an epic-scale adventure that is unlike anything live-action Star Wars shows have done so far. While the live-action Star Wars TV shows continue to expand the saga, there has yet to be a live-action Star Wars series that matches the scale of the theatrical movies. For example, The Mandalorian usually follows Din Djarin and Grogu on small, self-contained missions. Likewise, Andor was a spy thriller set in the Star Wars galaxy.

Ahsoka, on the other hand, is leaning into the fantastical aspect of the Star Wars universe. The Jedi Temple ruins, whose design is similar to that of the World Between World, suggest that Ahsoka will tap into unexplored corners of the Star Wars canon. Similarly, having Star Wars Rebels characters in Ahsoka adds to the saga’s interconnectivity. In addition, Ahsoka’s villains are much-needed new Star Wars antagonists.

Lastly, Grand Admiral Thrawn’s return in Ahsoka makes the show even more important for Star Wars in the long term. One of the most important characters from the old Star Wars Expanded Universe, Thrawn joined Disney’s Star Wars canon in Rebels season 3. With Dave Filoni’s The Mandalorian movie described as the culmination of the Mandoverse, Ahsoka could be the beginning of an epic saga featuring Thrawn as the main villain.
