Disney+ has revealed the first look at Loki Season 2 and the Star Wars franchise Ahsokavia a whizzing reel highlighting upcoming releases on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar in 2023. Narrated by protagonist Tom Hiddleston himself, filming for the next chapter of Loki promises more “over the top” time-hopping adventures as Loki finds himself in an alternate Time Variance Authority with Owen Wilson’s recurring agent character Mobius M. Mobius. The Disney+ 2023 trailer also gives a brief look at Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano, who gets her own eponymous Star Wars limited series after first appearing in The Mandalorian.
Loki season 2 first look
The teaser for Loki Season 2 features an interesting bit of banter between the God of Mischief (Hiddleston) and Agent Mobius (Owen Wilson), even as he talks to three variants of Loki, all dressed in fancy suits, in a dark, quiet alley. In the background you can see an old-fashioned motorcycle, which could indicate that our heroes traveled back to the past. Remember, since this is a new timeline, this version of Mobius doesn’t even recognize Loki. Also, Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors) is in charge of the TVA, while its non-hostile multidimensional variant “He Who Remains” was stabbed to death by Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) in Season 1. Loki Season 2 is set to return in Summer 2023 , but before then, a variant of the villainous Kang will appear in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, expected to be released next February.

Dave Filoni, who helmed The Mandalorian, returns as writer and creator of the limited series, which he is also attached to produce alongside Jon Favreau (Iron Man). Very little is known about the plot for Ahsoka. Ahsoka gets Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane).
