STAR WARS: AHSOKA Will Debut On Disney+ Later This Month With A Feature-Length Premiere

The runtime for the first two episodes of Ahsoka has been revealed ahead of the show's premiere later this month, and it sounds like you'll need to put quite a bit of time aside on August 23. Check it out!

If Disney+'s Star Wars (and Marvel) TV shows all have one thing in common, it's that the runtime of episodes is often too short. 

However, for those of you who hate nothing more than seeing the latest instalment of your favourite series with a runtime of 40 minutes or less on a Wednesday morning, we have some very good news. 

As we first reported on, the runtime for this month's two-episode premiere of Ahsoka has been revealed and, in total, they'll clock in at a feature-length 1 hour, 36 minutes. 

We don't have the specific runtime for each episode, but that's an average of 48 minutes each, a solid indication we'll be spending a fair bit of time with Ahsoka Tano in this corner of the Galaxy Far, Far Away. Hopefully, that remains the case for all eight instalments of the next Star Wars TV series. 

There's a massive amount of excitement for this Star Wars Rebels follow-up, particularly after Ahsoka's live-action appearances in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. With Dave Filoni's movie on the horizon, we're expecting this to be a crucial lead-in.

Set after the fall of the Empire, Ahsoka follows the former Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy. 

In addition to Rosario Dawson in the title role, the series stars Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla, the late Ray Stevenson as Baylan Skoll, Ivanna Sakhno as Shin Hati, Diana Lee Inosanto as Morgan Elsbeth, David Tennant as Huyang, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Eman Esfandi appearing as Ezra Bridger. 

Ahsoka was written by Dave Filoni, who executive produces alongside Jon Favreau, Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson, and Carrie Beck. Directors include Filoni, Steph Green, Peter Ramsey, Jennifer Getzinger, Geeta Vasant Patel, and Rick Famuyiwa. 

Ahsoka will launch exclusively on Disney+ on August 23 with a two-episode premiere.

Y'all remember that flesh-colored Twi'lek in Boba Fett's series? Man, that was dumb.

I have very low expectations for this. They may be calling it Rebels Season 5 but the entire cast except the 2 bad guys are female.
SonOfAGif - 8/4/2023, 6:08 PM
@AvalonX - So because it's primarily females you have very low expectations for it? Insecurities are showing.
cham2119 - 8/4/2023, 6:17 PM
@AvalonX - go touch grass you loser lol
AvalonX - 8/4/2023, 7:13 PM
@SonOfAGif - Yes because despite featuring so many females, they can't write them for shit.
SonOfAGif - 8/4/2023, 7:15 PM
@AvalonX - Have you seen the show already? Or are you just projecting because you have seen projects with females and you didn't like them so you have an issue with all female characters? Were you one of the grown men projecting and upset that Barbie was doing well at the box office?
AvalonX - 8/4/2023, 7:16 PM
@cham2119 - Oh HaHa good one! This loser is massively successful and independently wealthy. Shut your mouth or I will buy the basement you live in and toss you out while you watch your girlfriend count my ceiling tiles.

@SonOfAGif - Stop changing IPs. I said Disney. You asked and I gave the answer. You dont want to dispute the answer so you change the argument. None of Disneys female led projects have been great. They actually got worse as they went along. They can't even elevate a female character properly by giving them a proper heroes journey instead of making them a girl boss. So yes, I have low expecatations which mean I have not seen the show already.

@AvalonX - Ms. Marvel, Wandavision, Wakanda Forever, and Multiverse of Madness were loved by critics and audience members. Their ratings are online for you to view. You said "None of the Disney female led projects have been great" but the critics and general audience disagree. It's ok to have a wrong opinion

@SonOfAGif - bro everything you named was shit. And Ashoka will not suck because of the all female lead - it'll suck because of disney. I hope i'm wrong, but they've been on a streak of sucking since endgame (not counting the few dimes like nwh or gog3).
AvalonX - 8/5/2023, 11:17 AM
@SonOfAGif - Multiverse of Madness was supposed to be a Dr. Strange movie. You just made my point. Critics are paid, you know this. No one watched Ms. Marvel, they even threw it on ABC because no one cares. Wandavision had potential but they screwed it up. What was the message they sent? Could a man kidnap an entire town and just get away with it? Shit, Agatha wasnt even the villain. Wanda was. Thats how bad it was written.
AvalonX - 8/5/2023, 11:23 AM
@IvanBadski - This is exactly what I mean. They can't write female leads for shit. That is exactly why Im worried. Rebels was a balanced cast. Zeb, Kanon, Ezra. You can just take the guys out and call it Rebels season 5. It appears Sabine was trained by Ashoka. I'm not even sure I like that idea.
SonOfAGif - 8/5/2023, 1:11 PM
@IvanBadski - They suck because you said so?
cham2119 - 8/5/2023, 11:34 PM
@AvalonX - lol who are you kidding no woman would let you touch her 😂😂😂 that was a good one virgin

ep 3 will be 39 mins. Then the last ep 25 mins
WarMonkey - 8/5/2023, 7:00 AM
1st episode must be real boring if they are dropping the 2nd one right after. At least that's my theory cause that is almost always why streaming services do this, plus Disney has a track record of losing a ton of viewers after 1st episodes in every show so far. I don't think there was any show where the numbers went up instead of down?
