Once upon a time, Star Wars was a seemingly straightforward trilogy, or at least that’s what one might believe if the intricate web of its narrative wasn’t considered – the final three chapters of a larger six-episode cinematic tapestry. But then, as if by design, the saga unveiled plans for another epic trilogy on the big screen.
Yet, the universe didn’t stop there. The small screen emerged as a formidable realm for Star Wars with productions like The Mandalorian and Andor. And then, there’s the extensive expanse of Star Wars Legends, a realm once cast aside but gradually finding its way back into the approved canon, all thanks to the masterful touch of Dave Filoni, renowned for his stewardship of The Clone Wars and Rebels.
Filoni, the architect behind these beloved animated tales, is at last gracing live-action Star Wars with Ahsoka, a series that marks a pivotal point of his creative journey. With the show’s premiere at hand, here’s an introduction to the cast that will breathe life into this captivating venture.
