Empire Magazine just shared a brand new still from the upcoming series Star Wars: Ahsoka. The new image gives us a nice new look at Ahsoka Tano standing in front of some sort of viewport. While her new show is a spin-off from Star Wars: The Mandalorian, it will also be sort of a sequel to Star Wars Rebels. The series sees Ahsoka reunite with some of her friends from the Rebels series including Hera Syndulla and Sabine Wren.
Dave Filoni sat down with the fine folks at Empire Magazine to talk all about the upcoming series. He describes Ahsoka as a loner, as she is reintroduced in the series. While she is still very much strong in the force, as we have seen in The Mandalorian, she still doesn’t consider herself a Jedi. If you recall, Ahsoka left the Jedi Order towards the end of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
“She’s a wanderer at this point, and is in a lot of ways wary of any organization as such because of the power that comes with it as a group. She walks a path that basically died out a long time ago,” he explains. “And there aren’t many like her left, if any. So that’s a lonely thing. What is that life like? If you are a loner, you have a very small circle of friends. What is it like, then, when you try to open back up?”
About Star Wars: Ahsoka:
