    I expect a huge uptick in the "Filoni is retconning the sequel trilogy" people until we see what the series will be about.

    Good, but we still don't know who will play Thrawn or Ezra...

    Someone hasn't seen Rebels ... or 60% of the Resistance series.

    This is referring to Thrawn and some of the best Star Wars stories that have been on a screen.

    After the first half or so of Resistance, the show is actually really good.

    Ohh I thoroughly ENJOYED Rebels. Thrawn was very well done in Rebels. Though I did not like the VO his performance and style were spot on.

    I did not watch the Resistance series yet though.

    But I was generally making fun of Disney and their penchant for trying to ruin all things Star Wars. So far, I think the only thing keeping KK from destroying what faith Filoni and Favreau have built up is the control given to them by Iger before he left.

    You know that Iger didn't give them any control right? Kennedy gave them the control the have.

    Kennedy is their boss.

    As for Resistance, the first half or so of season 1 is not very good, but once the actual plot of the series kicks off it is good. It is similar to Clone Wars in that respect, rough start but gets pretty good.

    Star Wars: Ahsoka Confirmed for 2023 Release on Disney+

    https://comicbook.com/starwars/news/...ase-on-disney/
    By SPENCER PERRY - May 26, 2022 05:07 pm EDT

    Confirmed today during the Lucasfilm's Studio Showcase panel at Star Wars Celebration was a release window for the Ahsoka TV series on Disney+ with the studio announcing a 2023 premiere. No official footage or teases for the show were revealed to attendees but star Rosario Dawson did appear in costume in a pre-taped video, teasing that she might be present for the next Star Wars Celebration event. Also confirmed to premiere next year alongside Ahsoka will be season three of The Mandalorian as well as the all-new Star Wars TV series, Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, from Spider-Man director Jon Watts.

    "I get to be a part of a universe, and a team, and a world in which even as I age I might still be able to participate," Dawson previously told Vanity Fair about taking on the part in live-action. "That's huge. You know what I mean? To have that longevity with something, in my industry, that's not particularly heard of. It makes me feel so grateful."

    In addition to Dawson playing the titular Jedi, actress Natasha Liu Bordizzo will star as Sabine Wren, the young Mandalorian warrior from Star Wars Rebels; with Hayden Christensen also set to appear as Anakin Skywalker. Ivanna Sakhno and Mary Elizabeth Winstead will also star in the series in undisclosed roles with Ray Stevenson set to appear as villainous admiral, but not Grand Admiral Thrawn.

    "Ahsoka is a continuous story," Filoni said recently about the series. "It is definitely driving toward a goal, in my mind, as opposed to being little singular adventures. That's what I want the character to be doing, and I think that's what fans want now. They have such a relationship with her. I've only recently started to understand that all those kids that watched Clone Wars are now a lot older—they're very excited about all the things they grew up with, as they should be."

    A production listing for the series previously teased that the show's plot would be about Ahsoka continuing to hunt down Grand Admiral Thrawn and search for Ezra Bridger. Neither of those roles have been cast as far as we know just yet but filming on the series has officially begun.

    I mean they already have. We have the sequels which completely bent absolutely amazing and better Heir to the Empire/Thrawn trilogy.

    So I'd say let's hope they don't screw it up further.

    Character != Story. Thrawn's only live action appearance so far has been by name, that's it. Nothing's been screwed up about him, and if anything, Filoni and the other TV showrunners clearly understand, know, and have proven they can write the character properly, as opposed to the dingleberries responsible for the movies.

    Gotta let the ST be. At this part they are a tiny part of the all the SW content has put out, even if you ignore everything but the live action stuff.

    Considering the quality of that "merch" you found, it looks far less like actual merchandise and something some fan kitbashed together and painted by hand.

    I found the site and where it is from. It is a Gentle Giant merch. It isn't bad, but it would be like using a Sideshow Collectible figure as evidence.

    ‘Ahsoka’ Stars Rosario Dawson, Natasha Liu Bordizzo Debut Sneak Peek Footage at Star Wars Celebration.

    https://variety.com/2022/tv/news/ahs...235278204/amp/
    May 28, 2022 1:09pm PT
    By Adam B. Vary, Angelique Jackson, Wilson Chapman

    “Ahsoka” star Rosario Dawson popped up at Star Wars Celebration on Saturday to bring anxious fans a special surprise — some first look footage from the upcoming Disney+ series, which played exclusively for attendees.

    After missing Thursday’s Lucasfilm Studio Showcase presentation due to filming “Ahsoka,” Dawson appeared at the end of “The Mandalorian” panel,

    “I’m here because of people like you,” Dawson told the ecstatic crowd as she sat down with the panelists. “It’s just such a thrill and honor to bring her to life and feel the energy of everyone wanting to see her come to life.”

    The live-action series just finished its third week of filming, so Dawson was able to make the panel. “Luckily we don’t shoot on Saturdays,” she quipped.

    And Dawson came armed with more surprises. First, she introduced a very special guest: the trusty droid Chopper, who makes his live-action debut alongside Ahsoka in the series. Then, she cued up a less-than-30-second clip, which featured Dawson in her full Ahsoka regalia, along with quick glimpses at “Star Wars Rebels” characters Hera and Sabine Wren. The footage ends with Ahsoka looking at art of the cast of “Star Wars Rebels,” which implies other characters from the show will make their live-action debuts.

    The final surprise came after the lights in the arena came back up, just in time for Natasha Liu Bordizzo to make her official debut as the actor who will bring Sabine to life.



    “I feel like I’ve just been adopted into a new family,” Bordizzo said after taking the stage. “I know how much Sabine means to you, and after watching ‘Star Wars Rebels,’ she means so much to me as well.”

    In an interview with Variety senior culture and events editor Marc Malkin that followed the panel, Bordizzo and Dawson discussed joining the ‘Star Wars’ universe, revealing how secretive the process of joining the storied franchise is.

    “The audition process is as confidential as everything else, so I had no idea what I was reading for at first,” Bordizzo told Variety. “I was reading from another film, that had nothing to do with ‘Star Wars,’ and I was trying to analyze the material with no information, but I was like, ‘I feel like this is almost like a young Han Solo vibe to this character,’ not knowing it was Star Wars, mind you.”

    Dawson, meanwhile, spoke on the red carpet about how much playing Ahsoka means to her, and the process of working on the show, which includes learning martial arts.

    “Embodying a character, literally, physically, every single day, has brought on a whole other level of experience to working on a project, and bringing a character to life,” Dawson said. “It’s changing me.”

    She explained: “So often, I take pieces from a character, and then I inject so much of myself in to things of my own experience and what I have to draw from. But this is absolutely going in the other direction and she is so influencing me. It’s just been so powerful to be on that journey, to be taken along with it; it’s not something I could have hoped for, or dreamed of, so it’s really out of this world.”

    The Disney+ series follows Ahsoka Tano, an exiled Jedi who was once Anakin Skywalker’s apprentice before Anakin turned to the dark side and became Dark Vader. Their time together was chronicled in the animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” and by the time the series concluded, Ahsoka had become a fan-favorite and one of the few examples in “Star Wars” of a major female Jedi.

    Bringing Ahsoka into live-action has been a dream of “Clone Wars” writer and director Filoni, who co-created the character for the show. Dawson — who was fan-cast as the character — first played Ahsoka on Season 2 of “The Mandalorian” in an episode written and directed by Filoni, and she appeared again in the sixth episode of “The Book of Boba Fest” — again, directed by Filoni.

    Naturally, Filoni created “Ahsoka” as well, along with “The Mandalorian” impresario Jon Favreau, and the show started production earlier in May. A social media post by Dawson appeared to confirm rumors that Hayden Christensen is co-starring as Anakin (aka Darth Vader), but Lucasfilm has yet to officially confirm it. Given that the events of “The Mandalorian” and “The Book of Boba Fett” take place after Vader’s death in “Return of the Jedi,” any appearance by Christensen would almost certainly be either as a Force ghost, or in flashback.

    Other co-stars include Bordizzo (“The Society”) as Sabine Wren and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (“Birds of Prey”), Ray Stevenson (“Vikings”) and Ivanna Sakhno (“Pacific Rim: Uprising”) in undisclosed roles.

    The surprise footage was part of the Star Wars Celebration convention in Anaheim, Calif. — the first time “Star Wars” fans have gathered in person since the pandemic. Saturday’s event marks Day 3 of the convention, which kicked off Thursday with the Lucasfilm Studio Showcase, and featured news about “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” “Andor,” “Star Wars: Skeleton Crew” and more, plus other Lucasfilm properties including “Indiana Jones 5” and “Willow.”

    She got a minor redesign with longer lekku and the 45 seconds or w/e they showed was pretty hype. Ending on the mural was pretty sweet.

    That little change makes her look better, imo.

    They still should be longer, but this new set looks better so far form the ones in Boba Fett and Mando
