Now there are TV series outside of The clone wars and Star Wars Rebels. The Mandalorian opened the franchise to live-action series, with many more in the works. There is the Cassian Andor series and the Obi-Wan series, as well as a Lando Calrissian rumor.
While all of them sound great and continue to watch beloved characters, there aren’t any that are female-led (as far as we know). So here are seven fantastic Star wars characters who also deserve their own show.

1. Mara Jade
Mara Jade has one of the coolest stories and fans have been eager to see her in action for a while. It only exists in Legends books and comics, which are no longer canon, but there is certainly an opportunity to bring her into the bigger Star wars universe. Mara Jade was once a courier for Emperor Palpatine and was dispatched to kill Luke Skywalker after Palpatine died in Return of the Jedi.
However, she became a thug. Force-sensitive Mara Jade ends up meeting Luke and they fall in love. In Legends, they got married and she also took on the last name Skywalker. In order to get her into canon, the franchise would have to polish its story because her son was Ben (and since Ben Solo already exists, they would have to strike that out). But there’s a lot of life that Luke fans haven’t seen. Plus, the show could talk about his life before Luke. It’s the perfect opportunity to take a look at this different type of Force-sensitive individual, someone who has worked closely with Palpatine.
2. You Moradi
Vi is one of the lesser known Star wars characters because its existence is linked to the edge of the galaxy in Disney Park. She is a spy for the Resistance and exists in the period surrounding the sequel trilogy (which is also the period of time that the Galaxy’s Edge lore exists). She has run-ins with Captain Phasma and Kylo Ren, and is a good spy in every way. As fans get a spy story with the Cassian Andor series, it would be a great opportunity to see a similar story in a different war.
3. Rae Sloane
Rae Sloane is a stalwart captain of the Empire, then the First Order, and her story is said to be a total 180-turn look at the conflict. It’s no secret that Star wars has some of the best Big Bads of all time. But when it comes to the protagonists or the stories being told, it’s mostly from the point of view of the “good” side. And while the dark side is inherently bad, and the Empire symbolizes a fascist regime, taking a look at that bad side could be cool.
There are comics and books on this side, like the ones Rae Sloane appears in (Consequences series, among others). But in the form of television or film, it is not often explored. Sloane’s story is a great place to do this. She is a determined and ambitious member of the Empire, then of the First Order; it is humanized and developed. A series on her would give that different perspective and focus on a truly decorated member of the Empire’s military.
4. Trill welds
This would be another series that would take a peek at someone from the dark side. Trilla made her first video game appearance 2019 Jedi: fallen order and is the inquisitor, second sister. But she started out as a Jedi. She was a Padawan to Cere when Order 66 arrived and the Clone Wars ended. They were trying to hide Jedi Youngling from the Empire, but were captured.
As Cere escaped, Trilla was taken to the Inquisitorius. This was a typical practice once the Empire took power, where Force-sensitive people were transformed into Jedi-hunter inquisitors. Sometimes they were Jedi they shot (like Trilla), but not always. A series about him would be interesting and would return to the inner workings of the Empire.
5. Rose Tico
Despite being the subject of hateful comments online, Rose Tico is a rather heroic character. She honored her sister’s memory by jumping on a mission with Finn, and literally lives and breathes for the Resistance. His character has been paid in dust Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but a series would be a great way to carry on the character’s legacy (and give him some great storylines).
6. Asajj Ventress
One of the saddest parts of The clone wars“The cancellation in 2013 was that Asajj Ventress’s story was never over. Now the cancellation meant nobody’s stories were over, however, Asajj’s is especially sad because she was such a complex villain. And with the seventh season, Ahsoka and Rex Clone Wars the trips could be concluded.
However, while fans didn’t see her, she had some really interesting adventures. After helping Ahsoka in Season 5, she ended up having an affair and a very intriguing relationship with Jedi Master Quinlan Vos. It’s all in the Dark Disciple novel which was created with Ventress’s remaining 8-part story arc for The clone wars. She truly is one of the coolest characters to hang out Star wars and sorely needed this series. Live-action or animated would do just fine.
7. Ahsoka Tano
Finally, Ahsoka Tano must have her own show. Point blank. She’s proven herself as one of the franchise’s most vital characters, with arcs spanning decades, something only a few characters can claim. As Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan, she has an important place in Star wars canon, but she also created her own right as an important part of this world.
With this place in the franchise, there are so many rumors surrounding the character. It’s only a matter of time, at this point, until she gets her own series, but what could it be? His novel, Ahsoka, follows her a year later The clone wars finished, so a series could watch his debut as a spy in the Rebel Alliance. And the 15 years between then and Star Wars Rebels is also intact. Or maybe a series could be after Season 4 of Rebels, showing what she did after Malachor.
Whatever they choose, Ahsoka’s story will continue to add to the complexity Star wars franchise. Any of these characters would be a great addition as well.
