Without a doubt we all knew it was coming but It’s still exciting all the same, with the upcoming Obi-Wan series airing on the 27th of May. Star Wars fans were wating of any news regarding a show following Ashoka and the official Disney twitter put out a tweet with an image of an all too familiar hat resting there on the directors seat.
It only seems fair to let Dave Filoni take the reigns as it was he who ushered the character of Ashoka into the Star Wars universe all those years ago in The Clone Wars animated show and more recently appearing in Live action in the The Mandalorian played by Rosario Dawson and also in an episode of The Book of Boba Fett as for the rest of the cast it’s been confirmed that Hayden Christensen will star in the show, possibly in the form of a flashback scene of some sorts, It’ll be fun to see what kind of de-ageing tricks will be used for those scenes if they do happen. Other than that the full known cast if quite short but includes: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Ray Stevenson and Ivanna Sakhno.
What do we already know?
Back in December of 2020 the show was first announced (With some of the cast) to be on the list of Star Wars related shows coming to Disney+ and was definitely a fan favourite to come out as I alongside others grew up with The Clone Wars and Ashoka’s journey and adventures throughout the seasons eventually concluding with the incredible final season and the wrap up for Ashoka’s story. Or so we thought, but after her appearances in The Mandalorian among other shows seems to suggest it’s not over yet.
