Jonh just dropped something out the blue…

I saw a comment on the YouTube video saying that Qui-Gon, Ahsoka, and Windu, shouldn’t be there, but in my eyes (as a hard stickler for canon) Qui-Gon and Ahsoka are fine, Windu is just the odd one out. Qui-Gon canonically was able to appear physically to Kenobi by the time of ANH (as per the From a Certain Point of View book for that film) and since every Jedi after Kenobi had become a Force ghost also became one, it’s safe to say that Ahsoka would, the only question is if she’s dead or not by the time of TROS (and Dave Filoni has implied/joked that she isn’t :S). And as for Windu, there’s almost no chance he could have become one, but the Story Group could always bend over backward and make it happen if they wanted.

I mentioned this in a comment above, but if we go with the explanation that “Only Jedi who were taught by Qui-Gon while they were still alive can return as ghosts,” then we have to exclude Anakin from that group as well. If Anakin can learn after he’s died, the other Jedi should be able to too. So I say, the more, the merrier!

I didn’t realize Filoni had already implied that Ahsoka is still alive - that might throw a huge wrench with the upcoming Ahsoka show. jonh - if there’s any way to have the expanded version with the extra Jedi, but a variation without Ahsoka, that would just be incredible!! (And with the purple/crackly lightsaber effects, of course!)

Yeah I think we’ve never gotten an answer on that, and the general idea is just that Qui-Gon, Kenobi, and Yoda were able to do it for him for some reason (which I’m totally fine with FWIW). Regarding cutting Ahsoka out then, I’d add Windu to the list too lol
