Rosario Dawson reprises her role as Ahsoka Tano in the new live-action Disney+ series.
Ashley Eckstein previously voiced Ahsoka Tano in "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Star Wars Rebels."
The show takes place after "The Mandalorian," with some familiar faces from "Rebels."
Ahsoka Tano was Anakin Skywalker's padawan in 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars'
In 2008, the animated "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" movie introduced Ahsoka Tano (voiced by Ashley Eckstein) for the first time, as the Jedi Council ordered Anakin Skywalker (Matt Lanter) to train her as his padawan, or apprentice. It was a surprising revelation that he had an apprentice because none of the movies mentioned it.
When "The Clone Wars" continued as a TV series, Ahsoka's training continued as the Jedi and the Republic continued to wage war against the droid armies that belonged to the Separatists. During this time, she became close with clones like Captain Rex (Dee Bradley Baker) and the Mandalorian warrior Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff).
Her friendship with Bo-Katan is largely why Rosario Dawson's Ahsoka was brought into live action back in "The Mandalorian" season two, as Bo sent Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) to look for her so that she could help train Grogu.
Ahsoka left the Jedi Order after being framed for bombing the Jedi Temple
While Ahsoka is definitely a hero, she doesn't class herself as a Jedi, and in fact, she left the Jedi Order in "The Clone Wars" season six when she was framed for bombing the temple.
The person responsible was another Jedi, Barriss Offee, who carried out the attack because she believed that the order had become corrupt — and that they were the ones actually responsible for the war with the Separatists.
While this didn't turn Ahsoka to the dark side, it did make her face the fact that the Jedi weren't as perfect and wholly good as they made themselves out to be, which is why she chose to leave and forge her own path.
David Tennant's Huyang is an ancient droid who helped Jedi padawans build their lightsabers
The "Ahsoka" TV series will also reintroduce "Star Wars" fans to Huyang (David Tennant), an ancient droid whose job it was to teach Jedi padawans how to build their own lightsabers when they were old enough. Tennant voiced the droid in "The Clone Wars" season five back in 2013.
Huyang has 25,000 years of Jedi history stored in his memory, which is pretty important because he could potentially help teach new Jedi alongside Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).
The iconic hero last appeared in "The Book of Boba Fett" when he was seen building a new Jedi Order on a remote planet. Ahsoka even visited Skywalker to check on his progress.
Rosario Dawson's hero reunites with several key characters from 'Star Wars Rebels'
"Ahsoka" will also bring several key characters from "Star Wars Rebels" into live action, with Mary Elizabeth Winstead playing pilot Hera Syndulla, and Natasha Liu Bordizzo as the Mandalorian, Sabine Wren.
The pair met Ahsoka on numerous occasions in the animated series, but it's the first time that they'll all meet in live action. Sabine was actually Ahsoka's padawan at the end of "Rebels," but the teaser trailers for "Ahsoka" hint that they went their separate ways.
The main character from "Rebels," Ezra Bridger (Esman Esfandi), is also set to cross over into live action. He was a young orphan who trained as a Jedi under Kanan Jarrus (Freddie Prinze Jr.) and eventually became extremely powerful in the Force.
Ezra Bridger saved Ahsoka from Darth Vader by pulling her into the World Between Worlds
"Rebels" also introduced a huge new concept into the "Star Wars" galaxy with the World Between Worlds, which could only be entered through an old Jedi Temple on the planet of Lothal.
When Ezra found it, he realized that it connected all the major points of the "Star Wars" timeline — including a duel between Ahsoka and Darth Vader, her former master. Bridger managed to save Ahsoka from being killed by pulling her into the World Between Worlds.
Ahsoka managed to persuade Ezra that using it to save people in his life who had died could have drastic consequences because he would be changing time itself. Ultimately, they both left the bizarre realm, and kept it hidden from the Empire. But it's not impossible that it could return in live action.
Morgan Elsbeth has been working for Thrawn and previously appeared in 'The Mandalorian' season two
The trailers for the series also revealed that Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto) will return, as she works alongside two mysterious Dark Side users, Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson) and Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakhno).
Elsbeth previously appeared in "The Mandalorian" season two when Tano was hunting Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) on the planet Corvus. While Elsbeth is a skilled fighter, Ahsoka quickly defeated her and liberated the people that Elsbeth was ruling over.
It's not clear what she was doing for Thrawn, or what their plan for the universe is besides reviving the Empire to its former strength.
Thrawn was last seen at the end of "Rebels" when Ezra Bridger used the Force to transport the Imperial villain to the opposite end of the galaxy to try and stop his schemes. It seems likely that whatever Elsbeth is up to involves bringing Thrawn back from where he and Ezra ended up.
"Ahsoka" premieres on Disney+ on Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET.
