No character from Star Wars had the impact of Ahsoka Tanowith the fan-favorite Jedi becoming a hero after her debut in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. After a series of appearances in animation, live action and various media tie-ins, Ahsoka she’s all set to get her own solo story live in the form of a series Disney+ Star Wars: Ahsokacurrently in production. In a recent interview with Dagobah Dispatchthe creator of Ahsoka Dave Filoni gave a pretty egregious update on how production on the series is going, and defined the experience “all i could hope for”.
Oh, that’s great. I mean, that’s all I could hope for. I never dreamed of [gestire una serie live-action] as I was learning over the years. But to have a character that has grown over the years with a lot of fans growing up with it… Now it’s at the point where we can do that, it’s wonderful to be this same person guiding it through different mediums, I think it gives a texture to the character that is very rare.
He revealed Filoniand also adding:
A lot of times when you’re an animator, you look at your creation as a spin-off that gets picked up by other people, just in case. You want to take care of these characters because you know them so well and it’s a very unique situation that we’re in, but that’s great. There’s no other way to put it. The simple answer is just, ‘Yeah, that’s great.’
Born from the events of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, Star Wars: Ahsoka will follow his character’s ongoing adventures. The cast of Star Wars: Ahsoka also includes Hayden Christensen in the role of Anakin Skywalker, Natasha Liu Borddizzo in the role of Sabine Wren and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ray Stevenson and Ivanna Sakhno in currently unknown roles. The series is written and produced by the icon of Star Wars Dave Filoniwith also Jon Favreau Of The Mandalorian as executive producer.
It’s thrilling, I have to tell you. It’s something you imagine yourself doing for a long time. And then it’s kind of surprising when you’re sitting there, and now you have to do it.
This is what Filoni has previously shared with Empire about the writing process of the series. He then also reported:
I’ve thought a lot about this adventure for Ahsoka and it’s interesting to see how it has evolved. Years ago, I never imagined that she was born from a tree branch that had anything to do with a boy [come] Din Djarin, or a child who looks like Yoda. It’s a big lesson for me about how, when you have other creatives like Jon Favreau, they can help bring that dimension and depth to what you’re doing.”
