Rosario Dawson Gives Filming Update For ‘Ahsoka’ Disney+ Series

Filming is currently underway for the Disney+ Original series “Ahsoka” at Manhattan Beach Studios in California.  Rosario Dawson, who plays Ahsoka Tano in the series, recently shared a filming update during an interview with Screen Rant and revealed that shooting on the show is still ongoing.  You can see what Dawson said below:

“Yes, we’re still filming it right now. We just have a couple months left. It’s going great. It’s really amazing learning martial arts in my 40s. [Laughs] It’s super amazing, and I don’t use that word very lightly. My grandmother used to say, ‘Amazing is two blue horses,’ if you ever said something was amazing. Because it’d be like, ‘No, amazing is two blue horses. That pizza slice probably isn’t amazing.’”

Rosario Dawson will be reprising her role as Ahsoka in the limited series who we last saw in Season 2 of The Mandalorian and in Chapter 6 of The Book of Boba Fett. Reports have confirmed that Natasha Liu Bordizzo will portray Sabine Wren and Ivanna Sakhno will play a newly created character reportedly named Astrid. Mary Elizabeth Winstead has also reportedly been cast in an undisclosed role.  Additionally, Ray Stevenson (Vikings) recently joined the cast.  THR reports that “he is a villain in the series and will play an admiral … although, not Thrawn.”

Insider Daniel Richtman previously revealed the following logline and synopsis for the series:

In “Ahsoka” Tano (Rosario Dawson) is on the hunt for the evil Grand Admiral Thrawn in the hope it will help her locate the missing Ezra Bridger, the young Jedi that disappeared with Thrawn many years ago. Based on characters from the “Star Wars” franchise. A spinoff of the TV series “The Mandalorian.”

Peter Ramsey will reportedly direct at least one episode of Disney+’s upcoming “Ahsoka” series.  Ramsey is the first Black filmmaker to win the animated feature Oscar as co-director of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Dave Filoni is attached to write the show and is exec producing with Jon Favreau.

“Ahsoka” is scheduled to premiere on Disney+ in 2023.
