The fact that Dave Filoni is already writing the script for Ahsoka should serve as a piece of exciting news for Star Wars fans. More so, it’s fitting that Filoni is a major part of the spinoff since he is the one responsible for bringing the character to life in the first place.
In an interview with Good Morning America, The Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau confirmed that Dave Filoni is currently writing the script for Ahsoka which will star Rosario Dawson as the titular Jedi.
“I’m working with my partner, Dave Filoni, who is a fantastic producing partner…writer who I met when I did a voice in The Clone Wars. We met at the Skywalker Ranch and we’re working together on this show [The Mandalorian.] He’s doing Ahsoka, which he’s writing right now…”
The Mandalorian already provided a glimpse of what a live-action Ahsoka Tano looks like during “Chapter 13″ of Season 2, and the character’s inclusion made fans eager to learn more about the former Jedi’s new chapter in the Disney+ era.
