In her message, Dawson thanked Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau, executive producer and "The Jedi" director Dave Filoni (who was also EP on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and creator of Star Wars Rebels), makeup artists Brian Sipe and Samantha Ward, and original Ahsoka voicer Ashley Eckstein. If you only know the character of Ahsoka Tano from her Mandalorian episode, dive into Ahsoka's backstory from her iconic animated appearances on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels. An Ahsoka Tano spin-off series was officially announced for Disney+ back in December, featuring Dawson in the the title role, along with another series called Rangers of the New Republic. Both series will take place within the post-Return of the Jedi era of The Mandalorian. In "The Jedi," Din Djarin -- aka "Mando" -- brought The Child to Ahsoka Tano in hopes of reuniting it with its fellow Jedi. Ahsoka discovered The Child's name was Grogu but ultimately refused to train the wee tyke because of the emotional bond between Grogu and Mando. It was in "The Jedi" too that we got our first tease of a live-action Grand Admiral Thrawn. Thrawn was a supreme adversary created by author Timothy Zahn as part of the then-Extended Universe (now under the new "Star Wars Legends" banner). Thrawn made the jump from page to screen though when he appeared as a villain in the second half of Star Wars: Rebels. Now, like Ahsoka Tano and Bo-Katan, it looks like the character is ready to become a fully physical form of the Star Wars Disney+ universe.
