The first two episodes of Star Wars' new Disney+ series Ahsoka have gone out to critics, who shared their reactions to the new entry in the franchise.

Following Rosario Dawson's first two appearances as Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, she'll now have the chance to star in her own solo series as she pushes the legacy of the Jedi to new heights.

Coming as something of a follow-up to the wildly-successful Star Wars Rebels series, Ahsoka will reunite with a number of her old friends and enemies, finding her place in the universe as a former Jedi and a member of a tight-knit family.Critics offered up their first thoughts on social media for Star Wars' Ahsoka series on Disney+ after viewing screeners for the first two episodes, posting quick reviews on X (formerly Twitter).

The first reactions were largely positive, with critics praising Rosario Dawson's performance as well as the series' action sequences and its Star Wars lore connections.

Collider's Steven Weintraub was "impressed with the action" and the story told in the first two episodes, noting that it's "super easy to follow" even for those who haven't seen Star Wars: The Clone Wars or Star Wars Rebels:First two episodes of 'Ahsoka' are really good. Even if you’ve never seen 'Rebels' or 'Clone Wars' it’s super easy to follow. Impressed with the action & how it’s all story. No side missions or filler. Can’t wait to see episode 3. Wish I could watch future episodes on a movie screen."

Total Film's Molly Edwards felt "classic Star Wars vibes" from the series while also noticing parts of it that felt more fresh, highlighting the "complex bond between Ahsoka and Sabine" along with the villains and lightsaber fights:

"'Ahsoka' is epic! It's got those classic Star Wars vibes while also feeling very fresh. The first episodes set the scene vividly, with intriguing villains, a complex bond between Ahsoka and Sabine, and some awesome lightsaber duels already – I really think we're in for a treat"

Forbes' Jeff Conway called the first two episodes "a true visual spectacle" while praising Rosario Dawson’s performance, specifically touching on the incredible fight scenes and the themes brought to life:

"I just watched the first two episodes of the 'Ahsoka' series! It’s a true visual spectacle. Rosario Dawson is phenomenal as the titular star. The fight scenes are epic and heart pounding. The story has a rich history and great themes about second chances and female empowerment."

The Direct's own Klein Felt gave special props to Natasha Liu Bordizzo for her live-action performance as Sabine Wren while calling the series "the Disney+ Jedi epic fans have been waiting for:"

"The first two episodes of 'Ahsoka' are pure Star Wars bliss. This is for Rebels what I'd hoped 'Obi-Wan' would've been for the Prequels. Rosario Dawson shines, but it's Natasha Liu Bordizzo's Sabine who blew me away. Ahsoka is the Disney+ Jedi epic fans have been waiting for.’s Joe Schmidt saw Ahsoka as "the sequel to Rebels" that fans have wanted, also saying it only falls short of Andor in terms of comparisons to other Star Wars Disney+ entries:

'Ahsoka' is definitely the sequel to 'Rebels' that Star Wars fans have been waiting for. While it's not perfect, it looks better than most other D+ productions like 'Mando' and 'Boba Fett,' but not on the level of 'Andor.'
