Trained by Anakin Skywalker, the Padawan of Obi-Wan, the Padawan of Qui-gon Jinn, Padawan of Count Dooku, who was the Padawan, there are few with such an impressive Force family tree as Ahsoka Tano. And now Ahsoka has a live-action series coming and a trailer.
The trailer is full of Force action and yet after the Jedi purge.
Needless to say, Star Wars’ owners Disney have the series, and it’ll launch on Disney+.
The trailer features Sabine Wren, Hera Syndula, Grand Admiral Thrawn, characters from the Rebels series, and I think Ezra Bridger. Bridger is also connected to Yoda, having been trained by Kanan Jarrus, who was trained by Depa Bilaba, the Padawan of Mace Windu and Mace was also trained by Yoda.
I’m getting all that Force family tree stuff from Wikipedia and other sources, and I’m there because my Star Wars lore is weak, and I sometimes struggle with how it connects.
It’s complex because Ahsoka Tano’s story is told in various Star Wars media, including the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, the live-action series The Mandalorian, and the novel Ahsoka. She is also mentioned in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Ahsoka Tano’s timeline is complex and spans many years. Her story begins during the Clone Wars, between Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Ahsoka continues to fight against the Empire in the animated series Star Wars Rebels, between the films Star Wars: A New Hope and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Ahsoka’s story is also continued in the novel Ahsoka, which takes place between the events of Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars: The Mandalorian.
The comments will tell me if I’m wrong!
The Disney+ Ahsoka series picks up in August, and I aim to watch it, and perhaps it’ll be easier to join the pieces together.
