Bo-Katan's live action debut on the latest episode of The Mandalorian Season 2 shocked Star Wars fans across the world and opened the door for many other characters from the expanded canon to cross over.

It seems that the Jedi trained by Anakin Skywalker could make her appearance in Chapter 13, scheduled to release in two weeks on November 27th.
The episode is written and directed by Dave Filoni, who co-created both Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. It seems pretty fitting to let him develop the live action debut of Ashoka, a character beloved from fans and one very close to his heart.
