Favreau isn’t writing the “Ahsoka” series, but he and Dave Filoni have worked closely in the past, and having these two shows share characters means it’s important to plan ahead. Favreau said:
“[Dave’s] doing ‘Ahsoka,’ which I’m producing with him. He’s the writer and showrunner on that. To understand what’s happening on other shows….’Skeleton Crew’ all take place within the same ‘Star Wars’ time period. There’s a lot more things that we’ve got to keep in mind and also stuff that we’ve built up to from previous seasons of ‘The Mandalorian’ as well.”
Ahsoka Tano first appeared in the film and subsequent animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” as a young Jedi Padawan apprenticed to Anakin Skywalker. She was voiced in the film, series, and appearances in “Star Wars Rebels” by Ashley Eckstein. In the live-action appearance of the character in “The Mandalorian” season 2, Ahsoka was played by Rosario Dawson, who will continue the role in the “Ahsoka” Disney+ series. Joining the cast as “Rebels” character Ezra Bridger is Eman Esfandi. “Skeleton Crew” will star Jude Law.
“The Mandalorian” season 3 will premiere on Disney+ on March 1, 2023.
