Time for Ahsoka Tano fans to get excited. Production on the former Jedi's live-action Disney Plus series began Monday, the official Star Wars Twitter account revealed.
The tweet was accompanied by a photo of a director's chair sporting the show's logo, along with writer and executive producer Dave Filoni's signature cowboy hat -- hinting that Filoni will direct at least one episode of the show. There are also some monitors in the background, and Rosario Dawson's Ahsoka might be visible on the leftmost one.
It's unclear how many episodes we'll get or when the series will premiere, but it'll likely be sometime in 2023. Monday also happened to be Dawson's birthday, so hopefully Filoni organized a cake for her.
Dawson took on the role when Ahsoka made her live-action debut in The Mandalorian season 2 (where she had the honor of revealing Baby Yoda's real name), and showed up in The Book of Boba Fett earlier this year. Her spinoff series will take place in this timeframe, a few years after Return of the Jedi. Filoni was among the chief creative forces behind all four series, and has guided the character's journey closely.
