Ahsoka’s costume, a model of her starship, concept art, and more are on display at San Diego Comic-Con a month before the premiere of “Star Wars: Ahsoka” on Disney+. Comicbook.com shared photos of the “Ahsoka” items taken during the con’s preview night.
Ahsoka Starship Model
The starship is a T-6 Jedi Shuttle. These types of ships were heavily featured in “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” but more germane is the appearance of this very ship in the final scene of “Star Wars Rebels.”
“Ahsoka” trailers indicate this final scene will be re-created in live-action as Ahsoka and Sabine Wren set out to find Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn. The famous mural from this scene is also on display at SDCC — see it in the background of the photo below.
Shin Hati’s Lightsaber Hilt
Shin Hati is a young Force-sensitive human that will appear in “Ahsoka.” Portrayed by Ivanna Sakhno, Hati is the apprentice to ex-Jedi Knight and Thrawn ally Baylan Skoll. Both Hati’s and Skoll’s lightsabers illuminate orange-red and they are seen to battle Ahsoka and Sabine.
Skoll is portrayed by Ray Stevenson in a posthumous performance. Stevenson passed away earlier this year, after filming was completed.
Ahsoka’s costume, including her iconic lekku (head tails), is also on display.
Ahsoka Tano is portrayed in live-action by Rosario Dawson. Ashley Eckstein originated the role in the animated “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and also voiced Ahsoka in “Star Wars Rebels” and “Tales of the Jedi.”
Ahsoka Concept Art
“Ahsoka” will have a two-episode premiere on Wednesday, August 23. The full season will be eight episodes.
The series will act as a spin-off from “The Mandalorian,” in which Dawson appeared as Ahsoka, 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 in the final scene. In “The Mandalorian,” Ahsoka was seen searching for Thrawn on her own.
Natasha Liu Bordizzo portrays Sabine in live-action. She was voiced by Tiya Sircar. Ezra, originally voiced by Taylor Gray, will be portrayed by Eman Esfandi.
Hera Syndulla, captain of the “Star Wars Rebels” team, will be portrayed by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. She was voiced by Vanessa Marshall. Her droid, Chopper, will also appear in “Ahsoka,” and possibly her young son, Jacen, who only appeared briefly in the final moments of “Star Wars Rebels.”
Lars Mikkelsen is reprising his role as Thrawn, which he originated in “Star Wars Rebels.” Wes Chatham will portray Thrawn’s right-hand man. David Tennant will return as the droid Huyang, who teaches Jedi younglings how to construct lightsabers.
Hayden Christensen is also rumored to reprise his role as Darth Vader in “Ahsoka.” When he was part of the Jedi Order and still going by Anakin Skywalker, Vader trained Ahsoka. They last encountered each other in “Star Wars Rebels.”
