Many fans already know that the show is essentially serving as a continuation of the animated Star Wars Rebels. By the end of its run, both Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn are missing, with many believing them to be dead.
But how much more can audiences narrow down the timeframe?
Where Is Ahsoka In the Star Wars Timeline?
With Ahsoka's first two episodes now released on Disney+, audiences now know when the series takes place—mostly.
Sadly, at no point during Episode 1 or 2 is an exact year given. However, it's clear that it takes place after The Mandalorian Season 2.
The key giveaway to this is how Ahsoka had already questioned Morgan Elsbeth and sent her off for sentencing. Rosario Dawson first captured Thrawn's ally in The Mandalorian's "Chapter 13: The Jedi".
Ahsoka & Star Wars Rebels' Timeline Explained
Another piece of the show that points to its placement on the timeline is when Governor Ryder Azadi tells Lothal in Ahsoksa Episode 1 that it's been "several years" since Ezra Bridger's heroic sacrifice—firmly placing it after the main events of Star Wars Rebels.
Then there's the ending of Ahsoka Episode 2, which overlaps with the very end of Rebels, which featured glimpses of the characters' lives after the battle of Yavin. One of these moments features Sabine Wren standing in front of her team's mural as Ahsoka arrives.
While some of the details are slightly different for its live-action translation, it's clear that this moment is meant to overlap that very same one in the animated show.

These MandoVerse Star Wars Stories Will Collide
At some point and time, Ahsoka will need to sync up with The Mandalorian and all of the other shows taking place around the same time.
Hopefully, as Ahsoka continues, the show will offer up more tidbits that help place it more firmly in the franchise's timeline. One would think at some point when Ezra and Thrawn show up, they'll have a thing or two to say about how long they've been stranded.
With Natasha Liu Bordizzo comparing the show's events to when The Mandalorian Season 3 takes place, just how parallel are they? While Mando and Grogu are chilling after taking back Mandalore, will Ahsoka and Sabine be fighting for their lives against Thrawn in another galaxy?
Ahsoka is now streaming on Disney+.
