With all the buzz on social media about Star Wars: Ahsoka, it's hard not to be excited about the upcoming series.
But feeling like I don't know what hardcore fans know about the now iconic character tends to weaken my excitement. Partly because of the enjoyment I get from spotting those little hidden messages we call easter eggs.
I'm a sci-fi fan who tends to lean more towards the 'Trekker' side of things but still enjoys watching Star Wars programs.
If you're (like me) intrigued by Ahsoka and the Star Wars universe and could use a little backstory or refresher on Ahsoka Tano and the upcoming series, this article provides a little of both.
Set within the vast Star Wars universe, the new series revolves around Ahsoka Tano, who first became popular in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
No longer a Jedi, Ahsoka, embarks on a mission to locate her missing friend and fellow light side user, Ezra Bridger, and the menacing Grand Admiral Thrawn, who disappeared during the ultimate liberation of Lothal before the events of the original Star Wars.
As Ahsoka navigates through the New Republic era, set five years after The Return of the Jedi, she faces new challenges and embarks on thrilling adventures across various planets in the Star Wars galaxy.
Ezra Bridger "is a Force-sensitive human male, who was once a Jedi Padawan, a freedom fighter, and a revolutionary leader in the early rebellion against the Galactic Empire."
Grand Admiral Thrawn "also known by his real name Mitth'raw'nuruodo is a major antagonist in the Star Wars franchise, serving as one of the three main antagonists (alongside the Grand Inquisitor and Darth Vader) of Star Wars: Rebels and the unseen overarching antagonist of The Mandalorian."
Check out the quotes that made Doom Patrol Season One a must-see for fans of these unique superheroes. What was it that made the series stand out as powerful storytelling?
Ahsoka Tano "fondly known as "Snips" by her master Anakin Skywalker, is a Togruta Jedi Padawan who played a significant role in the Star Wars animated universe."
Created by Dave Filoni, Ahsoka first appeared in the 2008 animated film Star Wars: The Clone Wars, followed by the TV series (of the same name) that ran from 2008 to 2020. Throughout her appearances in the animated series, Ahsoka was voiced by actress Ashley Eckstein.
Alongside Rosario Dawson, the series stars Lars Mikkelsen who will bring the menacing Grand Admiral Thrawn to life, transitioning from his previous role as Thrawn's voice actor in the animated shows. Mary Elizabeth Winstead will take on the role of Hera Syndulla, while Natasha Liu Bordizzo will portray Sabine Wren.
Eman Esfandi has been cast as the character Ezra Bridger, marking his first appearance in the Star Wars universe. Additionally, Wes Chatham, who many will remember from The Hunger Games and most recently as Amos from The Expanse, will play Captain Enoch.
Ray Stevenson finished filming his Ahsoka character Baylan Skoll before sadly passing away in May. Stevenson provided the voice of another Star Wars character, Gar Saxon, in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.

Knowing that I probably, barely scratched the surface of this article, I will be updating it as I continue to learn more in preparation for the premiere.
