Star Wars fans rejoice! The newest fan-favorite character from the Star Wars universe is coming to the Disney Parks!

When the Walt Disney Company bought Lucasfilm in 2012, many Disney and Star Wars fans were unsure¬†if the move was right for either entertainment company. Over the years, from series and movies like The Mandalorian¬†and¬†Rogue One¬†to lands like¬†Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in both Walt Disney World and Disneyland, the acquisition of the iconic studio by Disney has proven inarguably profitable for the Mouse House.

Most recently, one character that fans have been clamoring to see more of is Ahsoka Tano, introduced in the 2008 Clone Wars animated film.

Is There Going To Be a ‘Star Wars’ Ahsoka Series?

In December 2020, Disney announced a series focused on the beloved character Ahsoka Tano. Actress Rosario Dawson (who also played a lead role in the Haunted Mansion movie released earlier this summer) plays the fan-favorite Ahsoka.

The series is set to premiere on August 23, 2023. It will run for eight episodes and focuses on Ahsoka Tano, a Togruta female and former Jedi Padawan who, after the Clone Wars, helped establish a network of rebel cells against the Galactic Empire.

The series was developed by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, and also stars Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, Ray Stevenson as Baylan Skoll, Diana Lee Inosanto as Morgan Elsbeth, and David Tennant will reprise his role as Huyang: a lightsaber-crafting droid. Hayden Christensen will also appear as Anakin Skywalker.

To celebrate and mark this premiere, Disney Parks announced that beginning August 23, 2023, visitors of Batuu may encounter the beloved Jedi at¬†Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park.

Fans were delighted at the development, and one shared,

This is amazing. A choice I heard people asking for even before characters began the crossover into the land. I don’t envy the performer though. She’s gonna have to deal with some hard core fans! But those performers have always been fantastic at doing the homework #Ahsoka
