Disney is gearing up for awards season with a For Your Consideration Fest, kicking off on May 29 at the DGA Theatre in Hollywood, California.

According to Variety, this is the third consecutive year Disney will host an FYC Fest, and this time, the cast and crew of Star Wars: Ahsoka will be in attendance. Ahsoka premiered on August 23, 2023, to a positive response overall. Episode 5 of the series, titled "Shadow Warrior", featured Ahsoka Tano's reunion with her former master Anakin Skywalker, who became a Sith Lord shortly after she left the Jedi Order. "Shadow Warrior" has Ahsoka's highest individual rating for an episode on IMDb with a 9.1/10 from the 21k fans who rated it.

The Ahsoka panel at FYC Fest will take place on June 2 at 3 pm and Rosario Dawson, Hayden Christensen, Dave Filoni, and Natasha Liu Bordizzo are expected to participate. The event will feature props and memorabilia from different series:

"Like last year, costume and memorabilia displays, along with social media photo opps, will be installed in the DGA lobby. "


In February, Variety predicted that Hayden Christensen might receive a Supporting Actor nomination for his performance in Ahsoka. Christensen's Anakin Skywalker was a major presence in the series and featured in multiple episodes, including Episode 5, Episode 7, and the last shot of Episode 8. It's a very well-received performance by fans, and we'll have to wait a while to see if it had a similar effect on Emmy voters.

"Participating Disney divisions include 20th Century Studios, ABC, Disney+, Disney Branded Television, Disney Television Studios, FX, Hulu, Lucasfilm Ltd., Marvel Studios, National Geographic and Walt Disney Studios."


A nomination for Christensen's performance would be a cherry on top of the cake as he's already basking in the glow of an outpouring of love and appreciation from Star Wars fans for his return to the franchise. In recent years, Star Wars has been a big presence at the Emmy Awards, as live-action shows like The Mandalorian, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Andor have received multiple nominations. Ahsoka will look to continue that trend for Disney and Lucasfilm.

Ahsoka is streaming on Disney+.
