‘Ahsoka’: 15 Key Episodes From Previous ‘Star Wars’ Series to Watch Before the Disney+ Premiere

If you’ve seen only the Star Wars live-action movies and none of the TV series, you may not know who Ahsoka Tano is.

The former Jedi was Anakin Skywalker’s padawan during the Clone Wars, set after the events of Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones and before Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith.

She was introduced in the 2008 Clone Wars feature film, which kicked off the 133-episode animated series (which aired the first five season on Cartoon Network starting in 2008, following by a sixth season on Netflix in 2014 and a final season on Disney+ in 2020). She also has appeared in Disney+’s Tales of the Jedi and Star Wars Rebels and delighted fans with a live-action debut in the second season of The Mandalorian.

On Aug. 22, Disney+ will launch a live-action series set around the character (played by Rosario Dawson in the live-action series and voiced by Ashley Eckstein in the animated series). The show will premiere with two episodes at 6 p.m. PT.

“The character has found new legs with the work we’ve been doing, and a show called The Mandalorian really set that up beautifully,” said Dave Filoni, who created the series, at last summer’s D23.

Below, find a list of key episodes to watch to get to know the character, as curated by The Hollywood Reporter digital managing editor Kimberly Nordyke and her 14-year-old son (and Star Wars fanatic), Braden. (All episodes can be found on Disney+ through a subscription or for rent/download on various other streaming services.) This list is by no means comprehensive (yes, we realize there are other great episodes we could have included, but we know newcomers have so little time to catch up!), but it does give some insight into the character and her backstory.

Warning: Major spoilers ahead.
