The long-awaited series Star Wars: Ahsoka is finally landing on Disney+ on August 23. And to make the arrival of Anakin Skywalker’s former apprentice even better, Ahsoka herself will also be a character at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland starting on the very same day. Although Ahsoka appeared in Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland for special ticketed After Dark events like Star Wars Night, this will be the first time park guests during regular operating hours will be able to take a selfie with Ahsoka during daylight hours.
Ever since Galaxy’s Edge opened up in 2019, the Outer Rim outpost planet of Batuu has become home to many familiar characters. On any given day, fans can interact with Rey, Chewbacca, Kylo Ren, and Stormtroopers. But for a long time, the characters were firmly from the sequel trilogy timeline. Things loosened up last year when Boba Fett and Fennec Shand arrived in Galaxy’s Edge. They were followed quickly by the Mandalorian and baby Grogu. Now, Ahsoka Tano will join them, and will interact with fans as she wanders the land.
Ahsoka previewed her debut at a fan event held at Disneyland on August 17. There, several Star Wars fans got to pose for photos with the ex-Jedi padawan. It seems as though Ahsoka Tano will apparently be exclusive to the Disneyland Resort, at least for now. There’s no solid word if she will eventually find her way to the Galaxy’s Edge over at Walt Disney World. However, Boba Fett, Fennec Shand, as well as Mando and Grogu, all debuted at the California park before making the journey to Florida. So, eventually, we expect that fans on the east coast will get to hang out with Ahsoka too.
Ahsoka debuts on Disney+ and also at the Disneyland Resort on August 23.
