Watch Ahsoka online

The first two episodes of Ahsoka will be available to stream globally from 9pm ET Tuesday, August 22 (2am BST Weds moring) with a subscription to Disney Plus. Each of the remaining six episodes will be released weekly.

If there's one character more riveting than Anakin Skywalker, it's surely the apprentice who was such a colossal pain in the neck that she sent him over to the dark side. Okay, not exactly, but Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson), who first burst onto the scene as a feisty young Padawan, became an instant fan-favorite for good reason.

She's been in the presence of greatness, nicknamed it "Sky Guy", and not only risen to meet the challenge but dished out some valuable lessons along the way. The montrals and lekku, orange skin, and two-lightsaber fighting style only add to the appeal.

Set at the same time as The Mandalorian season 3 and after the events of Return Of The Jedi and The Book of Boba Fett, the eight-part series charts Ahsoka's pursuit of Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen), who's as slippery as he is well-connected, the uncompromising mercenary Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson) being one of the red-eyed general's most useful allies.

There appears to be a significant role for Anakin (Hayden Christensen), via a succession of flashbacks, and his connection with Ahsoka will be a reference point for Ahsoka's difficult relationship with her own young protégé, the bounty hunting, spraypaint-wielding, hair-cutting Mandalorian polymath Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo).

Episodes 1 and 2 drop at 9pm ET on Tuesday, August 22 (slightly earlier than Disney originally planned). Read on as we explain how to watch Ahsoka online from anywhere.

How to watch Ahsoka online

The new Star Wars spinoff series Ahsoka debuts globally on Disney Plus on Tues, August 22. The first two episodes will be available to stream at 9pm ET in the US, at 2am BST in the UK, and at 11am AEST in Australia.

Each of the following episodes will arrive at the same time each Wednesday.

In addition to being the exclusive home of Disney’s huge back catalog, Disney Plus also gives you access to the entire Star Wars canon, including The Mandalorian and Andor, plus all things Pixar and National Geographic.

How to save money on Disney+

While there's no longer a Disney Plus free trial to speak of, the Disney Plus price offers great value and is already cheaper than competing streaming services like Netflix. Yet you can get more bang for your buck when you sign up for an annual subscription and get 15% off the monthly price. Yes, you have to splash a wad of cash initially, but with so much content to get stuck into, we very much doubt you'll run out of things to watch before your year is up. You're looking at $79.90 ($109.99 without adverts)/£79.90/AU$139.99 for a 12-month membership.

If your interests are farther reaching (and you're in the US), then we'd seriously recommend the fantastic value Disney Plus bundle package. It adds Hulu and ESPN Plus to your subscription price, with the Hulu element opening up a world of more adult-focused content, including Hulu Originals like History of the World Part 2, Candy, Tiny Beautiful Things, the Hellraiser reboot and Nine Perfect Strangers. Meanwhile, ESPN Plus brings tonnes of exclusive live sport, highlights and documentaries. The combined bundle costs just $12.99 per month.

What else should I know about Disney+?

Ahsoka is the latest in a string of exciting new releases exclusive to Disney Plus, following on from American Born Chinese, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ms Marvel, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. There's plenty more to come too, with Loki season 2 set to arrive in October.

You'll also find National Geographic documentaries, Disney and Pixar classics, the entire Star Wars saga and every season of The Simpsons.

Star on Disney Plus, meanwhile, has seen the amount of content available through Disney Plus more than double, with a particular eye on more grown-up shows. Some of the best Star on Disney Plus shows include The Dropout, Snowfall, Only Murders in the Building season 3, and Solar Opposites. And parents won’t have to worry about their kids accidentally seeing inappropriate content, as Star includes a slew of parental control features to ensure the service stays as family-friendly as ever.

Star on Disney Plus is available in the UK, most of Europe, and other select markets like Australia and New Zealand - but not in the US, where the media giant's Hulu service already has very similar ground covered.

So, what devices can you watch Disney Plus on? The streaming service has apps for iOS and Android (of course) and is available to watch online via the likes of Amazon Fire TV Stick, PS4, Xbox One and Roku streaming devices.
