Book of Boba Fett Theory: Darth Vader United Ahsoka And Luke Skywalker

Warning – Article has spoilers for Star Wars Rebels and Episode 6 of The Book of Boba Fett​​​​​​.

There are few characters as universally loved by Star Wars fans as Luke Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano. Also, both the characters share a deep connection with each other.

After all, Ahsoka Tano was trained by Luke’s father, Anakin Skywalker. Audiences always wanted a scene between the two, and their wish was finally fulfilled in episode 6 of The Book of Boba Fett.

But it was pretty clear that this wasn’t the first time the two had met each other. Their conversation about Grogu indicated a camaraderie and friendship that had to be developed off-screen.

Comments like “so much like your father,” and “as I’ve told you” indicate some history between the two. Many thought that we would get to see their first meeting on screen.

But it doesn’t seem to be the case. The show takes place 5 years after the events of Return of the Jedi. As such, surely Ahsoka and Luke have met each other before. But the question of- how did they meet?

Darth Vader United Luke And Ahsoka

Anakin Skywalker as a Force Ghost

One of the last times we saw Ahsoka Tano was in Star Wars Rebels. Years later, she met Din Djarin on Corvus. And this is when we see her in The Mandalorian.

One significant story arc in Rebels was Ahsoka coming to terms with the fact that Anakin had fallen to the dark side and become Darth Vader.

We saw in the animated series that she was haunted by his fall when she found out. Even though there’s a decade’s worth of Jedi history that fans don’t know about, it’s pretty fair to assume that Ahsoka must have struggled with it over time.

Ahsoka believed that there was nothing she could have done to save Anakin from the fall. But, once Luke came to him, Vader’s shell began to crack.

These cracks might have become apparent as the Original Trilogy went on. As such, the former Jedi might have felt little disturbances in the Force due to this.

Ahsoka and Anakin

This all ended with Vader saving Luke and destroying the Emperor, thus, bringing balance to the Force. should have sensed this change as well as Anakin’s death.

This might have motivated her to seek answers and over time, she might have met Luke Skywalker. On the other hand, we think that Luke sought Luke out, too.

Anakin Skywalker showed up at the tail end of Episode VI as a Force Ghost. It’s likely that Luke communicated with his father after his death and learned more things about the Force.

Luke’s main agenda was to find out about other Force users and pass on his knowledge. He wanted to rebuild the Jedi Order. And who better to track down first than Ahsoka Tano.

Anakin could have guided Luke to her. And maybe he did the same with Ahsoka. Darth Vader coming back to the light and then dying, could have been the key to Luke and Ahsoka finally meeting.

But what’s next for the duo?

Will We See Luke Skywalker in Ahsoka?

Luke Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano in The Book of Boba Fett

In episode 6 of The Book of Boba Fett, Luke and Ahsoka say goodbye. The Jedi Master asks Ahsoka if he will see her again. Her response is:

“Perhaps. May the Force be with you.”

If there’s one thing that Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau do, then it’s to follow up on their teases.

From what we saw in season 2 of The Mandalorian, Ahsoka’s mission is to find Thrawn and Ezra Bridger.

Now Luke could play a role in that search. Also, the upcoming series could show how the two met before going into the present-day tale.

But no matter the way, when the two of them are together, they can share their experiences and perspectives regarding Anakin.

Ahsoka can explain the compassion and wisdom Anakin possessed. This will give Luke another pov to fully grasp who his dad was. As for Christensen, many think that he will show up in flashbacks or as a Force Ghost.

Overall, we think that Luke will probably play a major role in the Ahsoka show. It just remains to be seen how. Check out the final chapter of The Book of Boba Fett on Disney+ next Wednesday.
