2022 Disney and its affiliates.
The Star Wars Celebration is currently taking place in Anaheim, California, and we will be there live – in the person of FILMSTARTS editor Benjamin Hecht. And that’s a good thing, because the most spectacular revelations have so far only been made exclusively for the fans on site. For example, the first trailer for “The Mandalorian” season 3 has not yet been published on the Internet – neither has the first trailer for “ Star Wars: Ahsoka ”.
At least we can now report or confirm that two fan favorites are returning in “Ahsoka”: Sabine Wren ( Natasha Liu Bordizzo ) had already known that before. But now we also know about another character: Hera Syndulla is also there.
The first teaser trailer didn’t reveal who is playing the Twi’lek pilot, as the character is only seen from behind. However, two actresses have already been signed for «Ahsoka», whose roles have not yet been officially announced: Ivanna Sakhno and Mary Elizabeth Winstead . It is quite possible that one of the two is playing Hera.

Otherwise, not too much can be gleaned from the trailer, but if you like, there is a confirmation for the plot of the series: Ahsoka ( Rosario Dawson ) and her fellow combatants are probably looking for Ezra, who once shared in the animated series «Star Wars Rebels». disappeared into hyperspace with his great adversary Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Because in the teaser for «Ahsoka» we see Sabine in front of the mural that she painted in «Rebels» and that shows, among other things, Ezra, Sabine and Hera. However, neither Ezra nor Thrawn can be seen in the trailer.
Another 3rd fan favorite?
In addition to the «Star Wars» gurus Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau as well as Rosario Dawson, Sabine actress Natasha Liu Bordizzo and droid C1-10P aka Chopper were present at the presentation of the trailer, who were greeted with thunderous applause. This can probably be taken as confirmation that the astromech will also be part of «Ahsoka».
Star Wars: Ahsoka began filming in May 2022. The series should appear on Disney+ in mid-2023.
The trailer for «Star Wars: Andor»: The anti-hero from «Rogue One» returns soon
