As Disney announced this week, the filming of the new "Ahsoka" series has officially started. You can see a photo of the director's chair, which, given the typical cowboy hat, most certainly belongs to director Dave Filoni. It can be assumed that Filoni, who is very popular among fans, will direct one or even several episodes of the series, although details about this are not yet known. The fact that the 47-year-old was chosen to direct "Ahsoka" is no mere coincidence; after all, he was also in charge of the first "Clone Wars" film. In it, Ahsoka also made her first appearance as a Jedi apprentice to Anakin Skywalker. Since then, Filoni and his character have been inseparable. For this reason, we think it is likely that Filoni will not direct just any episode. He will probably direct the pilot episode right away. This way, as the creator of the character, he can set the overall direction of the series. "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" director Peter Ramsey will also be responsible for at least one episode. The plot of the series is not known yet, but we can certainly expect appearances by Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano, Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker and Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren. We will also get to see Ivanna Sakhno, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ray Stevenson in as-yet-unknown roles. A release date has not been provided so far.
