Disney+ hosted Ahsoka series watch events in which a select lucky few got to see the first two episodes of the Dave Filoni series! I am guessing that my invitation got lost in the mail…
The events took place at Disneyland, Hollywood, New York, Hollywood Studios Orlando and San Francisco.
Last night, to celebrate “Star Wars: Ahsoka,” fan events were held in multiple cities, including Disneyland Park in Anaheim and Disney World in Orlando, and Hollywood, New York and San Francisco. At each venue, excited fans attended a screening of the first two episodes of Lucasfilm’s highly anticipated, new series. Each fan event featured extras, such as photo opportunities, props and costumes. Along with footage from the events, a sizzle reel was compiled to complete the celebration and is also available.
Disney+ is happy to announce that it will be streaming the series on Tuesdays beginning at 6 P.M. PT, premiering on August 22 with the first two episodes, exclusively on Disney+.
