Fans seemingly lost all hope for the Star Wars franchise after Disney's sequel trilogy failed to meet expectations. Thankfully, Lucasfilm was able to redeem itself thanks to the brilliant and dynamic duo of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni who are currently overseeing the franchise's streaming offerings via Disney+. As it stands, fans can expect a slew of new projects to hit the House of Mouse's namesake streaming service but a new report claims that one anticipated series could end up getting delayed.
The upcoming Ahsoka is definitely one of the shows Star Wars geeks are eager to see especially after rumors surfaced online that it will serve as a continuation of Star Wars Rebels. Officially announced during last year's Disney Investor Day, the series was initially expected to have a 2022 release date along with other shows like Obi-Wan and Andor.
However, according to a new report from Bespin Bulletin, Rosario Dawson's standalone spinoff series isn't hitting Disney+ anytime soon. The site unearthed a production listing that claims that the project will begin filming in March 2022 which will potentially wrap sometime during the Fall.

The potential delay of the series may sound frustrating to some fans but it makes complete sense when you think about it. I mean, Lucasfilm already has three shows lined up for 2022 alone, and trying to squeeze in Ahsoka in the already-packed slate might end up being an overkill despite the impressive performance of the MandoVerse.
Meanwhile, you can get your Star Wars fix, including the upcoming The Book of Boba Fett over at Disney+.
