The Book Of Boba Fett Wasted Luke And Ahsoka’s First Meeting Onscreen

Warning: SPOILERS for The Book of Boba Fett episode 6.

Episode 6 of The Book of Boba Fett was remarkable in many ways. Apart from Din Djarin, Luke Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, and Grogu returned again in that episode. But many Boba Fett fans weren’t too happy with this.

Because in a show called The Book of Boba Fett, there wasn’t much Boba Fett in it. A major part of the episode was Luke and Ahsoka’s meeting. The reveal of the two Force users at Luke’s Jedi Academy was unexpected but emotional and quite satisfying.

However, it should be said that it was a little disappointing to see Ahsoka and Luke sharing the screen in Boba Fett. This is because it seems like these two legendary characters already knew each other.

Ahsoka Tano Is The Bridge

When Ahsoka showed up in season 2 of The Mandalorian, the stage was set for a meeting between Luke and her. After all, she was the bridge between the Prequel, Original, as well as Sequel Trilogy.

The idea that it was Anakin Skywalker’s padawan who ultimately witnessed the establishment of Luke’s Jedi Academy before it eventually got destroyed by Kylo Ren is a smart choice.

We know how Ahsoka is connected to the Skywalker family. After all, when she meets Mando, she says, “I am a friend of the family,” when Mando asks her what she was doing there.

However, many fans wish that the show had shown this connection differently.

Why Was Luke And Ahsoka’s Meeting In The Book Of Boba Fett Unsatisfying?

Many Star Wars fans thought that her sudden cameo in The Book of Boba Fett was disappointing. This is because considering her history with the Skywalker family (and this includes Padme, too) her first meeting with Luke Skywalker should have been immensely emotional. And we should have seen it on-screen.

Now, we don’t need to see the first meeting of Ahsoka with each and every Force user. For example, no one is particularly interested in how she met Cal Kestis.

However, Luke Skywalker, the original protagonist of the Star Wars movies, is different. As such, not showing Ahsoka’s first meeting with Luke was a big mistake on the part of The Book of Boba Fett.

That first meeting had to be a cathartic moment for both Luke and Ahsoka. After all, both of them knew Anakin Skywalker. But differently. One knew his fall, and the other saw him rise out of the darkness. Also, who knows, maybe Anakin will ensure that his son and padawan meet.

The Disney+ Ahsoka Series Should Show Luke And Ahsoka’s First Meeting

Now, we have to admit that Luke and Ahsoka’s meeting for the very first time in The Book of Boba Fett won’t make much sense. However, there is an upcoming show that will provide an organic opportunity for it, and that’s the Disney+ show Ahsoka.

After all, Ahsoka Tano is going to be one of the last known Force users when her show takes place. As such, it seems almost a given that the show will bring in the other remaining Jedi in the galaxy.

The Ahsoka show is bound to be focused on Togruta’s emotional state as well as her journey. Considering what we have seen of her story until now, it makes sense that she will meet Anakin’s son.

Also, with Hayden Christensen coming back as Anakin/Darth Vader in the show, emotions are bound to rise in the show. Maybe viewers didn’t like Luke and Ahsoka’s interaction because the latter didn’t have much to do in this episode.

It was essentially a glorified cameo. Ahsoka was just a barrier that prevented Din Djarin from seeing Grogu. And apart from a few dialogs in one scene, Luke and Ahsoka barely pass any time together.

Ideally, the Ahsoka show should address more about Luke and its titular heroine’s first meeting. We can’t wait to see how it all goes down. But first, tune into the season finale of The Book of Boba Fett on Wednesday, February 9th on Disney+.
