Ahsoka star Rosario Dawson recently discussed training for the show's titular role and how physically intense it was for her.

"Man, I am not a workout-y person, and I'm in my 40s getting into the most physically demanding role of my life," Dawson told Vanity Fair. "

She's master level. The challenge is for me to show up and express that…. It's like, I won't necessarily work out for myself, but I'll work out for Ahsoka any day of the week.

Ahsoka Tano was introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars back in 2008. Though she had a rocky start, Ahsoka quickly became a fan-favorite over time, she grew from padawan to Jedi Knight.

The Daredevil actor ultimately landed the role thanks to a viral piece of fan art depicting her as the Clone Wars and Rebels character.

Lucasfilm announced Ahsoka, along with other Star Wars shows -- including The Book of Boba Fett and The Rangers of the New Republic -- in December 2020 as a spinoff to The Mandalorian.

Clone Wars screenwriter Dave Filoni helms the series as a writer and says the series would tell a serialized story rather than having separate adventures in each episode.

Additionally, Obi-Wan Kenobi star Ewan McGregor recently confirmed Mary Elizabeth Winstead's involvement in Ahsoka.
