Two new Mandalorian spinoffs are coming—one for Clone Wars and Rebels legend Ahsoka Tano, and another focusing on the New Republic that replaced the overthrown Empire.

Rangers of the New Republic and Star Wars: Ahsoka will be set in the post-Return of the Jedi timeline, with the former telling a story that ultimately culminates in a shared climactic event with the events of The Mandalorian.

Rosario Dawson will reprise her role as Ahsoka Tano as seen in The Mandalorian’s second season for the titular series, which will be penned by Clone Wars, Rebels, and The Mandalorian’s Dave Filoni, while no details were mentioned about who will appear in the New Republic-centric series, beyond the fact that Filoni and Jon Favreau will co-produce.

The first of the series will begin on Disney+ around Christmas 2021.

Whoa, wait a minute. Dawson has had one run at Asoka, and she is already getting a spin-off? Seems a bit unearned and forced. Asoka is a fan favorite, I totally get the motivation to give her a series, but Dawson’s portrayal of her was...mediocre at best.

Disney should make a Mandalorian Wars series instead.  Focus on Manda‘lor, show how the planet blew up from fighting amongst themselves, all the different clans and whatnot, that would be cool.
