It has also been confirmed during the Lucasfilm's Studio Showcase panel that other shows are confirmed to premiere next year alongside Ahsoka. They confirmed The Mandalorian series, as well as the all-new Star Wars TV series, Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, directed by the Spider-Man director Jon Watts.

"I get to be a part of a universe, and a team, and a world in which even as I age I might still be able to participate," Rosario Dawson said in a previous interview with Vanity Fair about taking part in live-action. "That's huge. You know what I mean? To have that longevity with something, in my industry, that's not particularly heard of. It makes me feel so grateful."

Aside from Rosario Dawson playing the titular hero, Natasha Liu Bordizzo will be starring as Sabine Wren, the young Mandalorian warrior from the Star Wars Rebels series; with Hayden Christensen set to appear in the series as Anakin Skywalker. Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ivanna Sakhno will also be starring in the series in undisclosed roles with Ray Stevenson set to play a villainous admiral, but it will not be Grand Admiral Thrawn.

"Ahsoka is a continuous story," Filoni recently said about the upcoming series. "It is definitely driving toward a goal, in my mind, as opposed to being little singular adventures. That's what I want the character to be doing, and I think that's what fans want now. They have such a relationship with her. I've only recently started to understand that all those kids that watched Clone Wars are now a lot older—they're very excited about all the things they grew up with, as they should be."

Star Wars’ latest series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, is set to premiere its first two episodes on May 27, on Disney+.
