Disney has released some exclusive photos from the new Star Wars Original Series, “Ahsoka,” coming to Disney+ this August.
The Disney+ Twitter account has tweeted some exclusive photos from the all new Star Wars Original Series, ‘Ahsoka.’
The pictures that were released are all stills from the show.
Above, we see Ahsoka, a force-sensitive Togruta female, who is part of the Rebel Alliance and whom the show revolves around.
Ahsoka is seen here with Sabine Wren, a Mandalorian warrior. They are on the hunt for Grand Admiral Thrawn in the hopes that it will lead them to what — or who — they seek.
We also got a sneak peek of an Inquisitor — though their identity is secret for now. If this is not a flashback, it will be the first time we see an Inquisitor in the post-original Trilogy timeline.
The Inquisitorius is a squad of former Jedi who serve Darth Vader by hunting down remaining Jedi and killing them.
A new trailer for ‘Ahsoka’ has debuted as well. Take a look below.
Disney also announced that ‘Ahsoka’ will be premiering on August 23 on Disney+.
Are you going to tune into ‘Ahsoka?’ Let us know in the comments.
“Ahsoka” stars Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano. Ashley Eckstein originated the voice role in the animated “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” in 2008. Eckstein also voiced Ahsoka in “Star Wars Rebels” and, most recently, in “Tales of the Jedi.” Dawson took over the live-action version of the character in “The Mandalorian” season 2. She reprised the role in “The Book of Boba Fett.”
“Ahsoka” will act as a spin-off from “The Mandalorian,” but also follow up on the cliffhanger of “Star Wars Rebels.” At the end of “Rebels,” main character Ezra Bridger sacrificed himself to defeat Grand Admiral Thrawn by jumping into hyperspace with the purrgil (space whales). His friends Sabine Wren and Ahsoka Tano then vowed to find him and departed together at the end of the series.
In “The Mandalorian,” Ahsoka was seen searching for Thrawn on her own. “Ahsoka” will pick up on her and Sabine’s search for Ezra, who was originally voiced by Taylor Gray and will be portrayed in live-action by Eman Esfandi.
