Chopper creates chaos in Ahsoka

The first two episodes of Ahsoka drop today on Disney+ for Star Wars fans living across the big pond. For UK-based fans (myself included), the episodes will be available on Wednesday morning at 2:00AM (BST).

Disney decided to reschedule Dave Filoni's highly-anticipated Star Wars live-action spin-off series for a primetime audience in the US. Series showrunner Filoni is going full live-action Star Wars Rebels and I'm here for it.

Lucasfilm has dropped an official clip featuring fan-favourite gremlin droid Chopper and Hera Syndulla (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).

Rosario Dawson reprises the titular role of fan-favourite Ahsoka Tano from The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. Ahsoka continues her hunt for Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen), Heir to the Empire.

Doctor Who fans (myself included) will be delighted David Tennant returns in the role of droid Huyang from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Later this year, Tennant plays Doctor Who for the beloved BBC sci-fi series' 60th anniversary on BBC One, BBC iPlayer and Disney+ outside the UK and Ireland.

In related news. The first stretch goal featuring Ezra Bridger has been unlocked with over 11,000 backers for the Star Wars HasLab The Ghost. This milestone has taken a while to reach, but the home of the Star Wars Rebels is not an impulse buy. I've cancelled existing pre-orders and sold collectables to back the latest project. Hasbro has announced an upcoming Fanstream for Ahsoka on Tuesday 29th August. Expect exciting product reveals.

Stayed tuned for Nick Smith's review of the two-episode premiere event soon. Our US-based stellar scribe gets to see it today.
