Mary Elizabeth Winstead is joining Rosario Dawson in the Star Wars spin-off series "Ahsoka."

Details of the plot and Winstead's character are being kept under wraps. The series is set five years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi.

Rosario Dawson stars as fan-favorite heroine Ahsoka Tano. Tano was first introduced to the Star Wars universe in 2008 in the animated film "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and the subsequent animated series of the same name. She made her live-action debut in the second season of The Mandalorian.

Hayden Christensen returns as Anakin Skywalker. Ukrainian actress Ivana Sakhno and Australian actress Natasha Liu Bordizo are also part of the cast.

Dave Filoni is the series' writer and executive producer alongside Jon Favreau. Filming on "Ahsoka" is expected to begin this spring in California.
