The process of Rosario evolving into Ahsoka are gone by steps:

  1. Rosario puts her hair up and puts the wig cap on but her ponytail is not covered.
  2. The artists apply white latex under Rosario’s eyes.
  3. The artists then put the white dome to cover Rosario’s ponytail.
  4. Brian then applies the rubbery piece onto her eyebrows and hair strands.
  5. Rosario’s face and neck are then painted orange.
  6. The buds are then placed into her ears.
  7. The artists place the plastic mask onto Rosario’s face so that the white tatoos can be airbrushed.
  8. The plastic mask is removed and the headpiece is then placed onto Rosario’s head.
  9. Her arms, hands, and back were then painted orange.
  10. Rosario then puts on the blue contact lenses and her evolution is finished.

Here’s the process of How Rosario becomes Tano. I’m not sure if I’m accurate, but Rosario can tell us the REAL process of how she becomes Ahsoka Tano.

Yeah we all saw your post the first time.

Small details that took you <em><strong>FOREVER</strong></em> to notice in the <em>Star Wars</em> films

Okay I’ve just thought of something, but Obi-wan says his pupil was called Darth Vader. As in that was his first and last name, a normal name. Not some dumbass evil moniker like every other dumbass red saber swinging goof in the universe.

Yeah, that is why he calls him “Darth” during the duel

I can’t defend the Dark Trooper Dubstep, but…

I watched a little interview with Göransson and he talked about the music not being traditional Star Wars, but that the trumpet fanfare in Mando’s theme being the one part that’s a tribute to William’s scores. Fair enough. However, the end of this episode took a much more traditional, orchestral turn. Of course, the end of the episode also featured a Jedi Knight cutting down Imperial troops, talking about the Force, etc.

  • What happens to Gideon and the Scientist now?
  • Will we actually hear more about Gideon’s research project, or is hinting that it’s part of creating Snoke all we need because this show is not about that?
  • Was that all his research project was about, or was he trying to give himself Force powers???
  • What happens with Bo-Katan and Din? It’s not like she wants to kill him, what with all the help he’s been. She’s not without honor.
  • Did this resurrect the “Boba Fett is not a Mandalorian” debate?
  • How does Grogu escape Kylo & The Knights of Ren?
  • When and where will Grogu & Din see each other again? Like, when Din is 90 years old and still ruling Mandalore, and Master Rey dispatches her cutest Knight as an emissary to the Mandalorians?
  • Did they have Boba fly away just so that he and Luke wouldn’t run into each other? It would go even worse than if Ahsoka & Luke met (I assume she would just not trust him, being his father’s son)
  • Was Luke’s whole plan to just show up in an X-Wing by himself and capture Grogu? I guess he can do that.
  • Did Cara recognize him as the great hero of the Rebellion who blew up the machine that destroyed her planet? Unless she did, I don’t think anyone on that bridge actually knew the name of the guy who took Grogu with him.
  • Did Artoo and Grogu recognize each other from their Old Republic days? Did Artoo spend time with the Younglings?

I actually don’t think they’ll have Luke play a big role in any of the shows after this. Like maybe a cameo, maybe, but they’d be smart to not use him much at all.

Am I wrong in thinking that most of the troopers we saw were probably Rogue One costumes?

Indeed, there were a lot of shore troopers at the Imperial facility. It’s not the first time the series recycles props, though. Multiple extras from TFA, Rogue One and Solo have made reappearances.

I actually think its quite neat that they’re reusing costumes for the movies. Not only is it nice seeing familiar uniforms, aliens, etc. but it’s fun to see that even a big show like The Mandalorian resorts to recycling props and costumes. Like Hal 9000 said earlier, there’s a certain charm to these simple and old school moviemaking shortcuts.

Agreed, and except for the part where they were “Shore Troopers” in a jungle, it makes the universe seem more consistent. Having a new kind of trooper for no real reason (looking at you, Rogue One) just feels silly.

Thought the seismic charge was a little fan-servicey, but not overtly so.

I’m always curious about comments like these. What do you define as fan service? It was used logically and organically in the situation, so why would it be “fan service”?

That’s fair. I think there were probably other ways to take out the TIEs, but instead they had him use something from AOTC that many fans agree was super cool. But 🤷🏻‍♂️

I was really impressed with this one. Mayfeld’s musings and the Officer’s philosophy were obvious highlights, which, given that they were well-written dialogue scenes, was a pleasant surprise. Thought the seismic charge was a little fan-servicey, but not overtly so.

No idea why Mando sent Gideon that message though.

The thing this episode made me realize about Boba Fett is that - even though he’s already a really famous character whose return was highly anticipated - we don’t actually know much about him as a person. We knew him as a child/young-teenager, but now he’s a 40-year-old played by a 60-year-old (that dang twin-sun radiation is at it again) and the show is kind of just assuming that we already know what he’s all about…

In this case, it’s not just twin-sun radiation, it’s also Sarlaac Juice

You hire the man who made Spy Kids, you get what you paid for. While last season’s AT-ST vs farmers episode resembled Hercules & Xena in plot, this was the closest we’ve come to that in production quality. Everything before the stormtroopers showed up was pretty good, although getting to Tython was way too rushed, but once the action started, it was pretty bad.
