AHSOKA Star Rosario Dawson Teases Thrawn's Role And Says Dave Filoni Called The Show "A Religious Experience"

Ahsoka star Rosario Dawson has shared some new story details about the Disney+ series (specifically relating to Grand Admiral Thrawn), while also sharing what Dave Filoni said after seeing a finished episode.

This weekend, The Mandalorian star Rosario Dawson made an appearance at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. There, she fielded a number of questions from fans, including how Star Wars Rebels villain Grand Admiral Thrawn is going to factor into Ahsoka when it arrives on Disney+ next year. 

Asked specifically where Thrawn is, the actor joked about him being "incognito" before confirming that Ahsoka will continue her mission from The Mandalorian: hunting the Imperial down. 

"That dude, man...incognito. Maybe we get the Scarlet Witch to help us, she can jump through Multiverses, right? Let’s go, girl!" Dawson joked. "Yeah, I mean, that’s a really big key kind of giveaway in Mando about what my show could potentially be about. Obviously, we are really trying to track [Thrawn] down, so we'll see what happens..."

Thrawn disappeared alongside Ezra Bridger in the Star Wars Rebels finale, so the former Jedi is clearly hoping the villain leads her back to him. 

It's been suggested that Thrawn might have somehow returned to power since the last time we saw him, and fans are convinced Moff Gideon is working for him. As both Ahsoka and The Mandalorian are set after the events of Return of the Jedi, it seems likely that Thrawn played a key role in attempting to resurrect Emperor Palpatine and The First Order's formation. 

Later, Dawson would reveal how showrunner Dave Filoni reacted to seeing a finished episode of Ahsoka

"So, I will say this," the actor started. "I will probably get in trouble for saying this, but Dave [Filoni] saw one of the episodes already edited together, and he walked up, him and Carrie Beck, both, like, glossy-eyed, and he said to me that it was 'a religious experience.'"

Talk about high praise, eh? 

Ahsoka doesn't have a confirmed premiere date, but it is coming to Disney+ in 2023.
