Maybe it's on Hera or Sabine, both have enough to flesh out and at least Hera has been active in the background of the movies

just ran down her imdb page because I didn't recognize her name. I don't think I have seen anything she had been a part of so this is a wait and see. wondering if it could be a spin off of the mandalorian focusing on Ahsoka? she has had a big popularity spike with the last season of Clone Wars and being announced for season 2 of the Mandalorian
