Ahsoka, Disney’s next big Disney Plus Star Wars show, will now premiere on Tuesday nights at 9PM ET / 6PM PT, Disney announced on Friday. That means the first two episodes of the show will now be available the evening of Tuesday, August 22nd.
It’s only a slight shift from Ahsoka’s original premiere date of Wednesdays. But since Disney Plus shows typically come out in the middle of the night, this new air time might make episodes easier to watch the moment they debut.
Personally, I’m a huge fan of the change. I’m old and go to bed early, so it’s hard for me to stay up late to watch new episodes of shows right when they air. Since I live on the West Coast, I can now watch Ahsoka at the extremely reasonable time of 6PM PT and still be in bed at a decent hour.
This isn’t the first time Disney has experimented with Disney Plus release dates. Disney moved the first season of Loki from Fridays to Wednesdays ahead of its debut. Soon after that, announced that Wednesdays would be the official premiere date for its original series. But last year, it debuted the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi on a Friday even though subsequent episodes released on Wednesdays. And with She-Hulk, Disney aired new episodes on Thursdays.
