The all female-led Star Wars spinoff, headed up by Leslye Headland at Disney+, is rumored to be a action series with martial arts elements set in an alternate SWU timeline according to Deadline. The spinoff was announced back in April (see "'Russian Doll' Showrunner Developing Star Wars Series"), and this report adds slightly more credence to the speculation that the series will be led by fan-favorite, martial artist Jedi Ahsoka Tano, who is played by Rosario Dawson in The Mandalorian S2 (see "'Mandalorian' Casting").
