Disney+ has released a new trailer for upcoming series Star Wars: Ahsoka, giving us an even more tantalising glimpse at what to expect from the dual saber-wielding Jedi.

Anakin Skywalker's former padawan had her debut in The Clone Wars animated series, with an appearance in Star Wars Rebels as well. With a standalone series following her live action debut in The Mandalorian, we'll finally get to fill in the gaps in her story as she searches for Ezra Bridger in the aftermath of the fall of the Empire.

Star Wars: Ahsoka follows Ahsoka as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy. The latest trailer gives us a good first look at blue-skinned villain Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen), ominously referring to him as heir to the Empire — a sly nod to one of the most popular Star Wars Legends novels.

Most of the Star Wars Rebels cast makes an appearance as well, including Hera Syndulla (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo), Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfadi), and droid Chopper.

With Rebels ending on a cliffhanger, Ahsoka is a welcome continuation of her story. The series premieres on August 23 on Disney+ with the first two episodes.
