For years, Ahsoka Tano has been on the hunt for answers about what happened to Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn at the end of Star Wars Rebels. Ahsoka has finally given the answer that will change the galaxy far, far away forever.
Ahsoka serves as a spiritual continuation of Star Wars Rebels, an animated series focusing on Ezra Bridger’s Ghost Crew facing off against the Empire led by Grand Admiral Thrawn. The series ended with Ezra and Thrawn pulled into hyperspace by an ancient race known as the Purrgil, though where they ended up was a mystery. Now, Star Wars fans know that the two aren’t just at the end of the galaxy; they’re in a new galaxy entirely.
Despite the series’ cosmic nature, Star Wars has mostly stayed within the walls of the galaxy far, far away (outside of a few exceptions in the Legends). Ahsoka revealing that the main characters of Star Wars Rebels ended up outside of the galaxy sets up truly unprecedented freedom for the series going forward, and could explain why Grand Admiral Thrawn and Ezra Bridger were entirely absent of mentions in the sequel trilogy. Though if this gambit pays off is yet to be seen.
The creative team cast of Ahsoka
The Ahsoka Tano series is being developed by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni. The latter co-created Ahsoka alongside George Lucas, with the heroine making her first appearance in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
The cast of the Ahsoka Tano series includes Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, Eman Esfandi as Ezra Bridger and Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, a.k.a. Darth Vader. Ivanna Sakhno and Ray Stevenson round out the cast.
Ahsoka debuts in August 2023 on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the Star Wars universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
