    The first two Eps of AHSOKA were excellent! Lots of storybulding in the first ep, and then the second is off like a shot.

    spoilerific detailed thoughts

    Spoiler


    I'm just going to say it....this feels more like the Sequel to the OT than the ACTUAL sequels do. This takes things we know and expands them into new pathways and ideas and doesn't retread ANYTHING...and is not just a rehash of the OT. HEIR TO THE EMPIRE baby!


    Totally agree on almost every point. I wasn't totally sold until the final 10 minutes of Ep 2 but that sealed the deal for me, I'm in.

    That was so good! Sabine and Hera look great! Elon Musk playing Thrawn is a weird choice though...


    My wife said the exact same thing when she saw him! Meme city?


    Do we know who the actor is yet? A quick search didn't turn up anything confirmed.

    Also, it definitely looks like a big part of this show will be the hunt for Ezra.


    It is Lars Mikkelsen, who voiced Thrawn for Rebels.

    Interesting that Ahsoka and Sabine's relationship seems to be being portrayed as having been difficult or even contentious? Is it not possible that Sabine could call her Master even if Ahsoka was only training her in lightsaber combat? Either way, as far as we know, Ahsoka has never taken on an apprentice before. She could've found it as difficult as Kanan did at times, especially with a Mandalorian padawan.



    Indeed, and Filoni is on record as having Ahsoka spending time in this series reckoning with the fact that when she walked away from the Jedi and Anakin, she was walking away from those teachings...but while that may have been the best choice in the moment...that the Jedi are not just what she saw in them in the prequels when she walked away....that there is more there, if she's willing to see it, and that may be why she was not the best Master and Sabine (who was always SUPER headstrong) was not a great student. The baggage from both would be immense. And this further explains why Ahsoka refuses to train Grogu and fobs him off onto Luke instead.

    I feel like this series is setting up Ahsoka training a new type of Jedi in this new unrealized part of space in ways that avoid the pitfalls of her predecessors....but first she has to come to terms with what that will make her and her students.

    At any rate, like you Ahsoka is my fave Star Wars character (aside from Obi-Wan), so I have high hopes that it will be done right.



    I certainly hope there's going to be a place for Ezra in all this, once we get him back. They took steps to make him a very important force user before he departed...

    I'm wishing for a spectacular series as well.

    New AHSOKA trailer!



    I think this is the first time we are learning that Sabine is force sensitive and trained under Ahsoka in the 5 years between the end of REBELS and when this takes place post-ROTJ. Super exciting!


    Are we sure that's what they're indicating, that Sabine is force sensitive? I'm not opposed to it but I've watched Rebels many times and I can't think of a single hint at that being the case. Kanan trained her with the dark Saber because he knew she'd have to know how to use it, since she was going to be challenged for it. It's a little hard to believe she was in the presence of 2 jedi for years and neither sensed any force ability in Sabine, that we know of. Is there such a thing as a very late bloomer in force sensitivity? I'll be fine with it, IF we get an intelligent explanation for it. Everything else about this trailer has me stoked. I'm also a little apprehensive. This is my favorite SW character (Ahsoka, that is) and if Disney trashes her or any of the Rebel crew I know and love so well, I am probably done for good.


    She calls Ahsoka "Master" in the trailer, and this comes right before she's watching a holo of Ezra talking about what it means to be a Jedi...AND she seems to go up against the dark force users later in the trailer...I can't see that as anything but force sensitive. She grew up noble on Mandalore, so any notion that she would be force sensitive would be ignored or snuffed out by the people in charge who abhorred the Jedi.

    But there ARE hints in REBELS as I recall...

    Towards the ending of "A World Between Worlds" Sabine tells Hera how they need to get to the temple painting and Hera asks her what about Ezra? She responds by saying "He's on his way." A few moments after that Ezra comes back out of the temple.

    And the late bloomer force Sensitive you're seeking for comparison? Luke Skywalker. He was 18 before he used it properly. And the only thing in his life up to that point that indicates it was him being a good pilot.


    Both your examples are fair or more than fair points. I could be convinced, again, if the reasoning makes sense. There were so many amazing things happening in the WBW ep that even on rewatch I never gave her line enough thought as to why she might know that.

    Interesting that Ahsoka and Sabine's relationship seems to be being portrayed as having been difficult or even contentious? Is it not possible that Sabine could call her Master even if Ahsoka was only training her in lightsaber combat? Either way, as far as we know, Ahsoka has never taken on an apprentice before.
