The divisiveness of Disney/Lucasfilm’s recent feature films and the success of The Mandalorian have resulted in a plethora of upcoming Star Wars television shows, Ahsoka being one of them. In The Mandalorian, it was revealed that Ahsoka is searching for Grand Admiral Thrawn, who was a primary antagonist of Rebels and whose fate is tied to the Jedi Ezra Bridger. In Rebels’ epilogue, Ahsoka meets up with Sabine Wren (who is being played by Natasha Liu Bordizzo in Ahsoka) to search for Ezra. Taking place five years after Return of the Jedi, Ahsoka should follow its titular character on the aforementioned quest and feature a host of familiar faces.
Artist Render Driver on Instagram recently shared some art showing Ahsoka, Luke, and Leia admiring a hologram of the siblings' father, Anakin Skywalker. The piece serves as a hypothetical poster for the show, alluding to the Togruta’s relationship with the Skywalkers. Check it out below:
The last time Dawson appeared as Ahsoka was in Chapter 6 of The Book of Boba Fett, which saw Din Djarin visit a mysterious planet where Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker was training Grogu. After Ahsoka advised Mando not to visit his surrogate foundling, she also stopped by Luke to tell him he’s just like his father—which was the first time Ahsoka and Luke have interacted onscreen. Before The Book of Boba Fett, it wasn’t clear if Luke and Ahsoka were aware of each other. Given the resonant relationship between Ahsoka and Anakin in The Clones Wars, long-time fans are surely interested in seeing more interactions between Ahsoka and the children of her former, fallen master.
Following Hayden Christensen’s role as Anakin/Darth Vader in Obi-Wan Kenobi, the actor is rumored to appear in Ahsoka via flashbacks, visions, or maybe even a hologram. That said, while a CGI de-aged Mark Hamill might continue to appear in the Star Wars shows, evoking the likeness of the late Carrie Fisher is probably less likely. However, Ahsoka may further flesh out her bond with the Skywalkers when the series releases sometime next year.
