The show sees Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson) wielding her white duel sabers from the animated shows, Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo) dons the green saber that once belonged to Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfandi), villains Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakhno) and Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson) have orange sabers, while the mysterious Marrok has a spinning double-sided red saber. Today, the official account for Star Wars shared a closer look at all of the characters' lightsaber hilts. 

"'An elegant weapon for a more civilized age.' #Ahsoka now streaming on @DisneyPlus," Star Wars captioned the prop-focused video. You can check it out below:

Remembering Ray Stevenson:

Sadly, Ashoka actor Ray Stevenson passed away earlier this year at age 58. Sakhno's interview with EW took place before her co-star's passing, and they actually were both present for the conversation. "Ray would constantly make noises," Sakhno laughed before turning to Stevenson. "I remember the first scene that we were filming, you came up with a song for Shin. I can't say too much of the scene itself, but Ray would just constantly walk around like, 'Who let the Shin out? Who, who, who...?'"

After the news of Stevenson's death was announced, Dawson paid tribute to him on Instagram. "Sharing in grief with you all," Dawson wrote. "What a Ray of light. Been calling cast/crew & the rest of my family to say how much I love them. Let this be your reminder to love on your people's in real time while you can. Ray was so vivacious &  unbelievably present & vibrant. He truly lived!!!"
