We don’t know much about the upcoming Disney+ Star Wars series Ahsoka. But we do think that there’s a chance Ahsoka Tano will finally become a Jedi in her show.
Ahsoka is famously known for being Anakin Skywalker’s apprentice in Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated show. After that Ahsoka made her live-action jump in The Mandalorian.
Ahsoka is, for all intents and purposes, a spin-off series of The Mandalorian. It will star Rosario Dawson as the titular hero. The show will continue her story in the same timeline as The Mandalorian.
While we don’t know a lot right now, but there are some clues regarding the plot of Ahsoka.
Ahsoka first appeared in The Mandalorian season 2, episode 5, titled “The Jedi.” There she revealed that she was looking for Grand Admiral Thrawn. Additionally, it was recently announced that Natasha Liu Bordizzo will be playing Sabine Wren.
Now, Sabine Wren is a character from Star Wars: Rebels, and once upon a time she was Ahsoka’s close friend. Putting these two things together, it’s possible that the duo will be looking for Ezra Bridger.
But there’s one main plot point that has been hinted at only indirectly- that Ahsoka might become a Jedi in her show.
We saw in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Ahsoka had a cameo along with the other Jedi who supported and encouraged Rey to rise up and fight Emperor Palpatine.
This might mean that Ahsoka really did become a Jedi at some point and also that she rose up to the position of notable masters like Anakin, Luke, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Kannan Jarrus, and Mace Windu.
This is definitely going to be the most crucial point in Ahsoka’s character arc and the best show to tell this story will obviously be her own. But why will Ahsoka become a Jedi?
One simple reason is that in her show Ahsoka might achieve the necessary skill level needed to become one. In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Ahsoka left the Jedi Order after witnessing its corruption and failure.
Back then, she hadn’t become a Jedi Knight. But she still was a very powerful Force user, who thankfully, chose to use her powers to fight for good.
During an interview with Vanity Fair, Dave Filoni, the creator of Ahsoka, the showrunner of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and the director of The Mandalorian described Ahsoka’s skill with the Force.
He said that when she appears in The Mandalorian, Ahsoka quoted:
“Is, for lack of a term, a master.”
This means that even though Ahsoka has never called herself a Jedi, but her abilities are indeed equal to one. So if she wanted to become a Jedi in her own show, she would be able to.
Along with this, Ahsoka might decide to become a Jedi if she learns about Anakin/Darth Vader’s redemption and his last-minute embrace of the light. As we all know, Hayden Christensen will be reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in the Ahsoka series.
So maybe he could appear as a Force Ghost and finally talk to his former padawan again? Or who knows, maybe they will be able to meet in the world between worlds?
Overall, Ahsoka and Anakin had a close relationship, and finally getting to know that he came back to the light might encourage Ahsoka Tano to also finally become a Jedi, even though she might not want to be part of the Jedi Order.
