Spinoffs on Star Wars fan favorite character Ahsoka Tano, Ahsoka, and Rangers of the New Republic will be coming to Disney+, Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy announced during Thursday’s Disney Investor Conference.
The Mandalorian’s Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni are working on both shows. Rosario Dawson will star in Ahsoka, making her debut as the character in The Mandalorian recently.
Disney+ announced earlier in the presentation that it would be releasing 10 Star Wars series, in addition to 10 Marvel series, over the next few years.
The news comes as The Mandalorian ends its second season on Disney+ in triumph and the most recent Star Wars feature film, 2019’s The Rise of Skywalker, endures a growing reputation as one of the worst of the 11 Star Wars movies to date. The Rise of Skywalker certainly wasn’t a financial failure — it grossed $1.07 billion worldwide — but it came well under astronomic expectations given its place as the concluding film in the Skywalker Saga, earning just over half the $2.07 billion global gross of 2015’s The Force Awakens.
