Where does the Ahsoka book fall in the timeline?

The Ahsoka novel, written by E.K. Johnston, falls in the Star Wars timeline between the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Rebels. The book explores Ahsoka Tano's life after leaving the Jedi Order and before she became an operative in the Rebellion. It details her attempts to live a life of solitude while avoiding detection by the Empire and her journey to find a new purpose after the devastating events of Order 66.

The book provides insight into Ahsoka's character and fills in gaps in her story that were not explored in the animated series. Fans of the character will find the Ahsoka novel to be a must-read, as it offers a deeper understanding of one of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars universe.

Did Ahsoka time travel?

In the Star Wars Rebels episode "A World Between Worlds," Ahsoka Tano seemingly time travels two years into the future and then returns to her original timeline. Ahsoka's time travel experience allowed her to possess knowledge of future events, which could have implications for the upcoming Ahsoka series on Disney+.

It will be interesting to see if the events of the new series are affected by Ahsoka's time travel or if it ends up having no repercussions.

Why did Order 66 affect Ahsoka?

One of the most traumatic events in Ahsoka Tano's life was the execution of Order 66, which resulted in the deaths of many Jedi Knights and the destruction of the Jedi Order. Ahsoka was not officially a Jedi at the time, having left the Order prior to the events of Order 66, but her Force sensitivity and her connection to the Jedi made her a target of the Empire's purge.

It's important to note that Palpatine's plan was not only to eliminate the members of the Jedi Order but also any Force wielder who could challenge him or train someone that could later pose a threat to his rule. This is why Order 66 included Ahsoka, as she was seen as a potential threat to the Empire's power.

The trauma of Order 66 and its aftermath shaped Ahsoka's character and her journey in Rebels and will undoubtedly continue to play a role in the upcoming Ahsoka series.

Will Anakin appear in the Ahsoka series?

While there has been no confirmation, there has been speculation that Anakin may appear as a Force Ghost to offer guidance to Ahsoka. This could provide closure to their relationship and allow Ahsoka to deal with the emotional trauma of their separation.

There is also an assumption that this series will bring an end to Ahsoka's story, making it all the more fitting for Anakin to appear in some capacity. Additionally, there is potential to use Anakin in a bigger role, perhaps exploring his journey from being a Jedi Knight to becoming Darth Vader.

Will Darth Vader be in the Ahsoka series?

According to reports, the new series will feature multiple fights between Ahsoka Tano and Darth Vader, with Hayden Christensen set to reprise his role as the iconic villain. The inclusion of Darth Vader in the series promises to add an emotional layer to Ahsoka's story, as she confronts her former master and deals with the trauma of their previous relationship.

Fans are hoping to see how Ahsoka's character has grown since their last encounter in Rebels and how she will deal with the challenges of facing off against the most powerful Sith Lord in the galaxy. The inclusion of Darth Vader in the Ahsoka series is sure to be a highlight for Star Wars fans and will add a new chapter to the ongoing story of the franchise.

The upcoming Ahsoka series on Disney+ promises to be an exciting addition to the Star Wars universe.
