Star Wars: What We Need Right Now is More Ahsoka Tano

A forty-plus year era of Star Wars ended in 2019 with The Rise of Skywalker. The original trilogy characters are dead and/or gone from the future of the franchise. We’ve even likely already seen the last of the characters to which we were introduced in the sequel trilogy. For now, at least, we have The Mandalorian and the beloved “Baby Yoda” to capture our attention. But… given the current state of Star Wars storytelling, and of the world in general, what we need now, more than ever, is more Ahsoka Tano.

Throughout her entire character arc thus far, the former padawan to Anakin Skywalker has always embodied the best of the Jedi. Caring and compassionate, Ahsoka sought the best in people. She sought the best in every situation. Even in her battle with Vader, she fought to save Anakin until all hope was gone. And though facing certain death, she still refused to blame the clones for turning on her and would not kill them. Now, a new Instagram post from Dave Filoni shows us why a character like Ahsoka Tano is such a beacon of light.

Ahsoka Tano: the inspiration we need

Filoni, of course, created the character of Ahsoka back in 2008. He was also responsible for overseeing her growth and maturity over the course of seven seasons of The Clone Wars. From time to time, Filoni will tweet or post pictures of Ahsoka Tano to Instagram. The latest also carries with it a poignant message, encouraging us to be better and help those in need:

In my life when you find people who need your help you help them no matter what.”

What better mantra could we ask for in these troubled times we’re facing in this country right now? Such a simple gesture, such a simple notion: help those in need. Period. End of discussion.

With any luck, if rumors hold true, we’ll get to see Ahsoka put action to those words in the second season of The Mandalorian. In the meantime, we here at That Hashtag Show encourage all of you to follow Ahoska’s teaching.

May the Force be with you.

I want so much to see in a series what Ahsoka Tano did after the events of The Clone Wars Victory and death: when and how Ahsoka met Bail Organa and Hera Syndulla; what Ahsoka did with his other lightsaber; how Ahsoka got his new white lightsabers; what Barriss Offee has become: if she saw Ahsoka again and after having reconciled, sacrificed herself to save her life; if Ahsoka saw Riyo Chuchi, Lux Bonteri, Trace and Rafa Martez, Saw Gerrera, Ursa Wren, Bo-Katan Kryze, Korkie Kryze, and Mace Windu if he survived.
I so hope that Ahsoka Tano will appear in season 2 of The Mandalorian with Sabine Wren.
If they make a series on Ahsoka Tano, I hope so much that the story of this character will start when she leaves the Jedi order, and that it is shown what she became until the events of The Clone Wars Gone With A Trace: if after leaving the Jedi order, she reviewed Asajj Ventress and teamed up with her for a mission; but also Barriss Offee and talking with her after discovering her betrayal, in order to reason with her and eventually come to terms.
I would like to see in a series what Ahsoka did after being saved by Ezra Brider in Star Wars Rebels “A World Between Worlds” until she finds Sabine Wren to go to the research by Ezra Bridger in “Family Reunion and Farewell Part II”.
I look forward to seeing Ahsoka with Sabine on their quest to find Ezra Bridger.
I so want to see Ahsoka meet Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, Han Solo, the ghosts of the Force of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda.
I want to see Mace Windu so badly in a TV series following Star Wars III revenge of the Sith after he survived his fall and it is shown how the jedi master survived his fall after having been sent out the window by Darth Sidious. I would especially like to see Mace Windu see Ahsoka Tano again after Order 66.
I hope so much that although we hear Ahsoka Tano’s voice in Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker, that doesn’t necessarily mean that she is dead, even if the majority of the jedi we hear are dead. But if she really died in Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker I hope, not only that it is well after his quest with Sabine to find Ezra Bridger, but that it is not by being killed by an enemy, but some something similar to the death of Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa or Ben Solo.
I would have liked Ahsoka Tano to become a Jedi again after Luke Skywalker’s founding of the new Jedi order, as that would mean that her pain when she left the Jedi order during the Clone Wars is well healed. Indeed when she left the Jedi order, she was very upset because she had lost confidence in the Jedi who had not believed in her innocence (excepted Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi) even after they admitted their wrong and offered to reinstate her.
I would love to see Ahsoka with Rex back on this moon near the graves of the clone soldiers with other characters including Luke, Leia, Han, Lando and Chewie.
I want so much to see Ahsoka Tano seeing Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine or before his exile on Tatooine after Order 66.
