Star Wars: Ahsoka star Rosario Dawson dropped a quick synopsis of her character ahead of the Disney+ series. On YouTube, the actress explained what Ahsoka Tano's been through to get to this point. The live-action Star Wars shows have leaned into the realm of the animated series a lot since Star Wars: The Mandalorian hit Disney+. Star Wars: Ahsoka is just the latest step in integrating all of that Clone Wars and Rebels goodness into the live-action realm.

A lot of people have been anticipating that the show will end up being a continuation of sorts for Star Wars Rebels. There are a ton of juicy threads that were left dangling at the conclusion of that story.

(Yes, one member has already appeared pretty recently, but this Disney+ project feels like more of a reunion spiritually.)

Ahsoka Has A Long History In Animation




Ahsoka Tano has been around in animated Star Wars content for a long time now. The Force user actually has a history that stacks up to other fan-favorites in a lot of ways. Star Wars: Ahsoka's creative team had to balance those adventures versus viewers who would be coming to Disney+ without all that context. Dawson herself admitted that it's a delicate dance in a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter. She thinks people should go back and watch those animated shows because they're good, and they're going to come into play during this series.

"With Star Wars fans, there's folks who really just watch the films, but now and especially with The Mandalorian, more [and more] people are watching the live-action shows. And then there are people who watch the animated shows," Dawson told the outlet. "There's even a tier beyond that with all the books and fan fiction. So there's different levels to the Star Wars family, and it's always been very highly considered to make sure [everyone can watch it]."
