I was late to Star Wars: The Clone Wars and I was late to Star Wars: Rebels. Hell, I'm late to season 3 of The Mandalorian. But... there is something I won't be late for: Ahsoka Tano getting her own dedicated series on Disney+. For anyone asking "Who the hell is Ahsoka Tano??" let's rewind a moment.
In the mid-2000s George Lucas came up with a cartoon series that depicted the Clone Wars. This took place between episodes II and III of the prequel trilogy. In this series, we learn that Anakin Skywalker had an apprentice. She was a young girl who was sassy, sharp, and didn't look at the powerful Skywalker with awe. She saw him as someone to challenge. It was an amazing relationship and Ahsoka became a fan favorite.
Over time, gaps in her storyline were filled in partially with The Mandalorian, partially with the surprise extra-final season of Clone Wars, and then with Rebels. And that looks to be where Ahsoka kicks off. The 40-second mark looks to be a direct recreation of one of the final scenes of Rebels. And I love where this is going.
There's a lot we can surmise from Ahsoka's appearances throughout the modern Star Wars universe, but if recent shows have shown, you don't need to know much in order to enjoy it. And that is how it'll get a lot of people watching it. I'm ready for August to come so I can check this out.
