Language: Ahsoka does not contain any strong words or profanity within the first two episodes of the series.
Mature Content: As far as mature content and adult themes go, the series is on par with other sci-fi content that comes out of the Star Wars franchise. Characters wield guns, blasters, light saber battles, and other weapons. There are characters battling with various fight scenes, battle scenes, and are killed; even within the first scene of the first episode, a character is shown being stabbed with a light saber. There are dark themes that may be too mature for a younger audience and discussions of witchcraft.

**This review was given after the author viewed the first two episodes of the series.
Ahsoka is a new live-action series that follows the adventures of Ahsoka Tano, a former Jedi Padawan who is now on a quest to find Ezra Bridger, a young Jedi who disappeared during the events of Star Wars Rebels. The new Star Wars series will delight longtime Star Wars fans, especially considering some of the bombs that have come out from the streaming service, such as The Book of Boba Fett and an episode of The Mandalorian season 3.
The limited series stars Rosario Dawson, who is excellent as Ahsoka Tano, once voiced by Ashley Eckstein in the animated series Star Wars Rebels and the hero of The Clone Wars series. Dawson brings a lot of depth and complexity to the character, and she perfectly captures Ahsoka’s strength, determination, and vulnerability. Dawson’s chemistry with the rest of the cast, particularly Natasha Liu Bordizzo, who plays Sabine Wren, gives hope that the rest of the season will be engaging and action-packed.
Disney Plus’ Ahsoka contains stunning visuals, on par with any Star Wars movie. The production team has done a great job of recreating the Star Wars universe, and the action sequences are some of the best in the franchise. It also does a good job of exploring the Force and the Jedi Order. It delves into the history of the Jedi and the challenges that they face in the wake of Order 66.
Granted, the show is slow-paced at times. The first two episodes are mostly set-up, and it takes a while for the story to really get going. This is expected with the buildup of the series and delving into the past in the first episodes. However, it also does a good job of balancing action and character development. There are plenty of exciting fight scenes, but the show also takes the time to explore Ahsoka’s inner turmoil and her journey to find her place in the galaxy.
Overall, Disney+’s Ahsoka is a well-made show with great performances, visuals, and action sequences. It’s not without its flaws, and it may be a bit slow-paced for some viewers. However, if you’re a fan of Star Wars, especially Ahsoka Tano, then I recommend everyone watch Ahsoka!
