‘Star Wars: Ahsoka’ Reportedly Starting Production Ahead of Schedule


Nerd Stash reports that the coming Disney+ series Star Wars: Ahsoka, focused on Ahsoka Tano, has reportedly begun production. Even though the series is ahead of schedule, Rosario Dawson will also reportedly begin filming this winter.

Writer and producer Marc Bernardin spoke about the production of the series. This happened as he co-hosted a recent episode of Fatman Beyond Podcast. He spoke about trying to hire Dawson for a short film he’s doing in December. The actor reportedly declined Barnardin’s project due to a Star Wars show she’s involved in. It is scheduled to film at the same time, according to Dawson.

He goes on to describe the situation, saying, “Kevin Smith helped me connect with somebody who was going to be in the cast but couldn’t make it happen. It was Rosario Dawson… she was my first choice, and I wanted her very, very badly. She read the script and she loved it, but she was like, ‘Listen, I’m going to be in Manhattan Beach making a Star Wars show, and, uh, I can’t be in your short.’ Which I was like ‘Okay!’ That checks out!”
