I don't think anyone wants the Ahsoka Tano series.


Not the blacks, not the feminists. It's the stupid woke box-ticking left that is pushing for this.

I love Ahsoka. She is one of the most wonderfully developed characters in all of entertainment. That said, it will be something to get used to having Rosario Dawson constantly playing Ahsoka.

I got so used to Ashley's lovely girly voice for Ahsoka.

I just hope Kathleen Kennedy departs soon, so we can go back to storytelling instead of driving agendas into this beloved franchise.

I'm calling it now, they're gonna turn her into a lesbian.

If Ashoka really does get her own show it will gave "Supergirl syndrome" written all over it... unless Kennedy really does get fired before the show is fully developed.

"I just hope Kathleen Kennedy departs soon, so we can go back to storytelling instead of driving agendas into this beloved franchise."

What agendas did the ST have?

reply

I don't watch SW cartoons because SW is a live action property therefore I never regarded Ahsoka a legitimate SW character. However, her Mando episode warmed me to the character. I see potential in her series as long as Kathleen Kennedy isn't around to ruin it.

reply

I see what you are getting at, however Lucas himself developed the Clone Wars. So, in my view, whatever Lucas did, was legit Star Wars.

reply

Plus Clone Wars is necessary to make some sense of the prequel trilogy.

reply

True!

reply

Well, when watching the prequels it's very obvious Ahsoka wasn't really around at the time since she is never seen or mentioned.

reply

LOL, no it does not. Stop it. You guys like the cartoon, that is fine. I read and enjoy several of the comics. But as Guitar King point out, Anakin never had an apprentice, you know this. Live action trumps everything.

reply

The prequel trilogy leaves so many holes, especially in making us actually care about Anakin. The Clone Wars fills those gaps nicely.

reply

"however Lucas himself developed the Clone Wars."

Oh yeah? How many episodes did he write or direct?

reply

All I want to know about Ahsoka is when and how does she die. We now know that she was alive thru the OT, and after the fall of the Empire. But she was dead by Rise of Skywalker, because she was one of the voices speaking to Rey. And it wouldn't make much sense for her to still be alive, since all the other voices were dead.

Ok, thought of a second question. Why did she never seek out or contact any other surviving Jedi? Did she ever find out that Obi-Wan and Yoda survived? And certainly she must have heard Luke Skywalker's name, and wondered if there was a connection to Anakin. Especially after the 2nd Death Star was destroyed and Luke and Leia were now legends in the galaxy.

reply

Who said that all the voices were of dead Jedi?

Of course it makes perfect sense if she is dead by that time. But I'm not sure that the voices had to have come from the dead.

reply

Bollocks.

When all the "proper" fans who follow everything Star Wars and give them all nearly equal weight saw a live action Tano flashing sabers around in a prequel era style and name dropping Thrawn (whoever that is) the "They've saved Star Wars." and "what we should have got in the sequels" slogans popped up immediately.

Want to try another one?

I want an Ahsoka series - she was awesome. And the episode was fantastic. It's one of the few in that giant screenful of promised series that I'm excited about.
