Dave Filoni describes the “exciting” writing process for the Star Wars: Ahsoka series

In a recent interview with Empire, The Mandalorian co-creator and Ahsoka writer Dave Filoni described the “thrilling” writing process for the upcoming Star Wars: Ahsoka Disney+ series.

“It’s exciting, I have to tell you. […] It’s something you’ve imagined doing for a very long time. And then it’s kind of surprising when you’re sitting there, and now you have to. […] I’ve thought about this adventure for Ahsoka for a long time, and it’s interesting to see how it has evolved. […] Years ago I never would have imagined that he came out of a branch of a tree that had something to do with a guy [like] Din Djarin, or a child who looks like Yoda. It’s a great lesson for me on how when you have other creatives like Jon Favreau, they can help bring dimension and depth to what you do.

While plot and release details are still being kept under wraps, we do know the Ahsoka The series will feature Rosario Dawson as the title character as well as a returning Hayden Christensen who will reprise his role as Anakin Skywalker, aka Darth Vader, who trained Ahsoka during The Clone Wars before turning to the dark side and the recently announced Natasha Liu Bordizzo who was chosen as the fan favorite star wars rebels character of Sabine Wren.
