Two Mandalorian spin-offs in the works at Disney+, including Ahsoka Tano!
Following her celebrated debut in the second season of the hit Disney+ Star Wars series, Kathleen Kennedy announced in the Disney Investors presentation that two Mandalorian spin-off series are in the works at the streaming platform, including one centered on Ahsoka Tano!
Ahsoka will see Rosario Dawson reprise the role of the young Jedi in the series, which will be set in the timeline of the mothership Disney+ series. The second series, entitled Rangers of the New Republic, will also be set in the same universe as Mandalorian.
Both shows will be executive produced by Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau and are expected to crossover into future seasons of The Mandalorian and lead to a climatic story event. Filoni will also write Ahsoka, which Disney describes as a limited series; a fitting move considering Filoni worked with George Lucas to create the character and even directed her live-action debut.
As of now, no release date has been set for either series, though the studio teased “the next chapter” of the story will debut Christmas 2021.
