The trailer was a significant moment for Ahsoka Tano and her dedicated followers, featuring Rosario Dawson as the title character along with other notable characters like Sabine Wren, Hera Syndulla, and Chopper. Watch the first official Ahsoka trailer below.
Ahsoka Tano has been a beloved character among Star Wars fans since her debut in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. Voiced by Ashley Eckstein, Ahsoka was initially a headstrong student who evolved into a fierce warrior and leader before leaving the Jedi Order. She then appeared in Star Wars Rebels, where she joined forces with the Ghost crew of rebels, including Sabine and Hera, and engaged in a lightsaber duel with her fallen master, Anakin Skywalker.
Ahsoka Tano made her live-action debut in Chapter 13 of The Mandalorian, titled “The Jedi,” where the Mandalorian sought her out to train his ward, Grogu, in the ways of the Force. Despite declining to train Grogu, Ahsoka remained an ally to the Mandalorian and continued her search for Grand Admiral Thrawn.
