Ahsoka Tano - discussion
Time

A natural journey for Ahsoka from here on out would be coming back from this state of mind, and letting go of her past experiences (actually, we saw this journey a little in her Rebels s4 episode, where she helped Ezra let go of his master just like how she knew she had to let go of her own).

As you said, the series of unfortunate events that have unfolded upon Ahsoka since the Wrong Jedi arc have left her tired and probably hurting - as anyone would be. She’s lost so many people, and most of that has been because of the hubris of the Jedi, and her realisation that they’re not the heroes she thought they were as a youngling/younger padawan. Hence I would understand why she wouldn’t want to train Grogu in the ways of the Jedi.

I view Mandalorian Ahsoka as someone still engulfed in her grief. She is sad, alone and hasn’t received closure. The last time we saw her (not including the Rebels epilogue), she was limping down the steps into the shadows of a Sith temple after finding out for sure Anakin was one of the most “vile” Sith Lords in the galaxy. I wouldn’t expect her to come out of that feeling hopeful and restored (although, there has been a decade passed since then in the timeline, so I can’t be fully sure on that).

To me, I think her Return on Lothal, with the white staff and cloak, may symbolise her getting that closure - an overcoming of the hurt left from her battle with Vader and from the people she’s lost; a commitment to fulfil her promise to someone who she viewed as not dissimilar to her younger, pre-Empire self, reckless but full of optimism: Ezra. Perhaps with that comes a sense of selflessness, granting her the right to wield the staff which I’m sure possesses some kind of greater power.

She could even seek out Grogu at some point - this could be the long-awaited Luke and Ahsoka meeting.

I hope we see this journey in the live action show. It would be a meaningful, important use of a limited series dedicated to her. I could see it involving Mortis and the mythological elements of the force. Perhaps seeing Anakin’s force ghost, redeemed, may give her closure? I’d love if the last episode saw her arriving to meet Sabine from her point-of-view, sort of allowing the threads to meet and give a clear point to continue from in a Rebels sequel series.

<strong>The Book Of Boba Fett</strong> (live action series) - a general discussion thread
Time

I can’t wait for The Book of Boba Fett. Before this season of Mando, I never had any interest in the character. Even when I heard he’d be in the season earlier this year, I wasn’t that excited about it. However, in literally 30 minutes (Chapter Fourteen), I found I was really invested. I think it was to do with the surprising way he was characterised in wanting to be as honourable as possible and deciding to help Mando find the child. I always figured that he would fend for only himself. Also, Ming-Na Wen is awesome and Fennec Shand is a great character. So glad she came back. I’m really looking forward to the show - which I’m sure will only make me more invested in their stories.

Perhaps we’ll see flashbacks explaining how he escaped the Sarlacc Pit?
I also think there’s potential for other characters to show up - Cad Bane could be a cool option, if he’s alive. After all, judging by what we’ve seen of that unfinished TCW arc, Bane - if alive - would likely be out to get him.

Thanks, jedi_bendu. I agree, I think animation is an incredible way of telling such a story as the search for Ezra. With such a vast array of new planets I’d expect from exploring the Unknown Regions as well as presumably many, many characters it would probably be a lot more practical for them to do it in animation. I also just love watching animation, and Season 7 of TCW was some of my favourite Star Wars ever - so it would be my choice of medium for that story.

That said, we know Ahsoka, Rangers, Mando and maybe even Book of Boba are set to “culminate in a climactic story event”. I think that whatever it is will be amazing, but I wonder if this will be yet again another pre-epilogue event. Perhaps Ahsoka becomes ‘the White’ after/during that?

You speak of head-tails, I wonder if her transformation into her Rebels epilogue appearance could result in the longer head tails. Just a thought, could be symbolic of her gaining a new sense of life/knowledge to have her lekku/montrals be more full of life. Would go with the appearance change of her gaining the staff and white attire.

Either way, I thought live action Ahsoka was fantastic (kudos to Rosario Dawson’s performance and the entire team who made it happen) and I’m so looking forward to seeing more of her.

Also yes, tying her to the WBW would be really exciting and a great way to explain her TROS situation. Perhaps her story’s end is to become the Guardian of the WBW (that could be the meaning of her appearance?) as she guides and manages the space between the force and material reality.

With the Ahsoka show being a limited series, I was thinking that this may not be a full-fledged ‘Rebels sequel’ as people first thought when it was announced.

I wonder, since Dave Filoni suggested the story he is telling in Mando takes place prior to that epilogue and her ‘Ahsoka the White’ appearance, that maybe this show will delve into how she gets to that point? Perhaps that involves some kind of mystical force journey, a revelation about Anakin and his redemption… maybe something to do with the World Between Worlds (as the logo seems to suggest)?

I just think that the fact alone that the show is called Star Wars: Ahsoka suggests that this won’t be the Search for Ezra story primarily, but instead a personal journey for the character. I think it would be ambitious and really unique to have this spiritual journey to ‘Ahsoka the White’ be the show’s main premise from premiere to finale, that ends with her meeting Sabine and embarking on the search - prompting the actual Rebels sequel. What does everyone else think?
