Following on from filming of the third season of “The Mandalorian” wrapping, Lucasfilm has begun production on a new Star Wars series, “Ahsoka” in Los Angeles.
According to THR, “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” director, Peter Ramsey has joined the project and is directing at least one episode.
Very little is known about this new Star Wars Disney+ series, though it will be a continuation of the “Mandalorian” timeline and is set after the events of “The Mandalorian” and “The Book Of Boba Fett”, which introduced Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano, who was previously introduced in the animated series, “The Clone Wars”.
No plot details have been revealed, but it’s expected to involve Ahsoka tracking down Grand Admiral Thrawn, who has featured in many novels and the animated series, “Rebels”. Thrawn was also mentioned in “The Mandalorian” as Ahsoka was trying to track him down.
Also appearing in the series will be Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ivanna Sakhno and Natasha Liu Bordizzo, along with Hayden Christensen reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker and Ray Stevenson playing a mystery villain.
“The Mandalorian” creative team, Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau are executive producing the Disney+ series.
Currently, it’s unknown when “Ahsoka” will be released, though it’s expected to arrive in 2023.
