Star Wars spin-off series Ahsoka for Disney Plus has started filming

Ahsoka, a new Star Wars spin-off series, has officially entered production.

Star Wars shared the news (opens in new tab) via the franchise’s official Twitter account along with a photo of the director’s chair, which has the show’s logo printed on the back (as well as writer and executive producer David Filioni’s signature cowboy hat).

The series was announced back in 2020 as one of three spin-offs from The Mandalorian, including The Book of Boba Fett and the upcoming Star Wars: Rangers of the new Republic.
