The upcoming Ahsoka series, which is still in production, will continues to introduce more characters from Star Wars: Rebels into the live-action fold.
During a panel at Star Wars Celebration, it was announced that Hera Syndulla and her droid C1-10P a.k.a. Chopper will also appear in Ahsoka. The duo joins previously announced Rebels character Sabine Wren, who will be portrayed by Natasha Liu Bordizzo. As of now, it is unknown who will play Hera and during the footage that was shown you could only see the back of the character.
The panel also teased the possible live-action appearance of Ezra Bridger, the main character of Star Wars: Rebels. Ezra disappeared into hyperspace at the end of the series, with Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Sabine set out with Ahsoka to find him. In The Mandalorian, Ahsoka was attempting to find Thrawn. Ahsoka will follow the former Jedi knight as she investigates an emerging threat to the vulnerable New Republic.
Rosario Dawson returns as Tano, who first appeared via live-action in the second season of The Mandalorian. Hayden Christensen returns to the small screen following his appearance in Obi-Wan Kenobi, reprising his role as Darth Vader. Also joining the cast are Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ray Stevenson, and Ivanna Sakhno, all in currently unknown roles.
Peter Ramsey (Into the Spider-Verse) is among those in the director’s chair. Developed by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, in conjunction with their work on The Mandalorian, Ahsoka is set to debut on Disney+ in sometime in 2023.
