With the release of Ahsoka happening very soon on Disney Plus, fans have been eagerly waiting to watch the series. The reception of the first Ahsoka trailer shown at Star Wars Celebration was very positive, with many attendees expressing their excitement over social media about how good the show looked. And while we still have to wait a little bit longer for the show to go live on Disney Plus, a new trailer released officially by Lucasfilm gives fans another peek at the upcoming Star Wars show. And it hints at some big things happening in it.
The new trailer for Ahsoka gives better looks at many of the characters that will appear throughout the series. We finally get a very clear look at Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn, as well as many of the Star Wars Rebels characters making their first live-action debut. If you were worried about any of the heroes from Rebels not translating well into live-action, the trailer does a great job of putting those worries to rest.
What’s more interesting is how the new Ahsoka trailer spotlights one of the antagonists of the series, Baylan Skoll, and his apprentice Shin Hati, played by Ivanna Sakhno. The role of Baylan was played by the late Ray Stevenson, who passed away after filming on Ahsoka was complete and shortly after appearing at a few events to promote Ahsoka with the rest of the cast. Baylan and Shin are said to be Jedi who survived the great purge of Order 66 during the events of Revenge of the Sith. Their motivations and reason for standing against Ahsoka are hinted at in the trailer, but much more is set to be revealed over the course of the show’s eight episodes.
As for Ahsoka herself, played once again by Rosario Dawson, there’s a lot going on in this series. Not only is Ahsoka reuniting with many of the characters seen in Star Wars Rebels, but she is continuing her search for Grand Admiral Thrawn. A big point of the trailer is when Ahsoka gets into a conversation with Hera and later with Baylan where she mentions Anakin Skywalker. Is it possible that we might see other connections to Ahsoka’s master in some way throughout the series? We also see Sabine Wren, played by Natasha Liu Bordizzo, show up and cut her hair short, as well as get into a battle with Shin at various points.
Although there was a lot shown in this new trailer, there are even more questions that fans will have about what is happening in the show. Lucasfilm has already begun the promotional tour of the show in various places, with many cast members speaking about their experience and what Star Wars fans can expect to see. While there are so many more questions brought up, fans will have to wait just a little longer to have them answered. Ahsoka is set to have a two-episode premiere on August 23rd on Disney Plus.
