There have been plenty of Star Wars and Marvel crossovers over the past 15 years. Actors like Samuel L. Jackson and Natalie Portman, who first appeared in the prequel films, went on to appear in the MCU. Taika Waititi is allegedly still working on his Star Wars movie after directing Thor: Ragnarok and Love and Thunder. Now, a Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse director is soon making the jump to a galaxy far, far away.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Peter Ramsey has been selected to direct at least one episode of the upcoming Disney+ series Star Wars: Ahsoka, which reportedly began filming recently.

Ramsey was the first Black filmmaker to win an Oscar for Best Animated Feature as the co-director of the hit Spider-Verse film. He began his career as a storyboard artist and his career continues to climb in the years following the animated film that introduced many Marvel fans to Miles Morales on-screen for the very first time.

Disney+ Star Wars shows in particular have recruited a variety of directors to these projects. The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, for example, pushed out episodes with different directors for almost every chapter in a season. Deborah Chow will be the first to direct every episode of a Star Wars series with Obi-Wan Kenobi launching this May.

Ahsoka will presumably follow Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren on a quest to locate Grand Admiral Thrawn, based on what viewers learned in Season 2 of The Mandalorian where Ahsoka first appeared in live-action. Few additional details about the series are available, with much more information to come.

Star Wars: Ahsoka stars Rosario Dawson and Natasha Liu Bordizzo and is expected to premiere on Disney+ sometime in 2023.
