Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Co-director Peter Ramsey is set to direct at least one episode of the Star Wars Ahsoka series in Disney+according the hollywood reporter.
Ramsey was the first black filmmaker to win Best Animated Feature at the Oscars after Into the Spider-Verse won the gong in 2019: He co-directed the film with Bob Persichetti and Rodney Rothman. He returned as an executive producer on the upcoming sequel to Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part 1), and also worked as a screenwriter on such films as Men in Black, Panic Room, and Minority Report.
As for Ahsoka, the series will continue Ahsoka Tano, played by Rosario Dawson, who previously played the role in both The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. While plot details are being kept under wraps, it seems likely that the series will follow his galaxy-wide search for Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Hayden Christensen will return as Anakin Skywalker, while Natasha Liu Bordizzo will play Sabine Wren, a character first introduced in Star Wars Rebels. Mary Elizabeth Winstead recently joined the show’s cast in an undisclosed role, and Ray Stevenson will play the show’s villain.
