Lucasfilm and The Walt Disney Company have announced an incredible milestone for their latest addition to the franchise Ahsoka. The eagerly anticipated series about the beloved character Ahsoka Tano has taken the streaming world by storm. It racked up 14 million views for its debut episode, “Master and Apprentice,” in just its first week on Disney+. This unprecedented achievement has solidified Ahsoka’s place as a fan favorite and set a new benchmark for streaming success.

Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm, expressed her joy at the series’ resounding success.

“Ahsoka has become a fan favorite with people of all ages, and it’s wonderful to see her continue to resonate with viewers in her own headlining series,” she remarked. Kennedy took a moment to acknowledge the remarkable efforts of the creative team behind the show. She singled out the visionary leadership of Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau. The casting of Rosario Dawson in the titular role was also highlighted as a key component in the show’s triumph.

The captivating world of “Ahsoka” is the brainchild of the brilliant minds at Lucasfilm. Dave Filoni, known for his deep understanding of the Star Wars mythos and his work on critically acclaimed projects like “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and “Star Wars Rebels,” has played an instrumental role in bringing Ahsoka’s journey to the forefront. Jon Favreau, celebrated for his role in kickstarting the Marvel Cinematic Universe and his work on “The Mandalorian,” has been a driving force in guiding Star Wars into the golden age of streaming.
