Arguably an important assembly in Star Wars historical past has taken place, we simply haven’t seen it. After The E-book of Boba Fett, we now know that Ahsoka Tano and Luke Skywalker had been acquaintances within the time between Return of the Jedi and The Power Awakens. However how that assembly of the forever-linked Power wielders occurred, nobody is aware of. Nicely, Star Wars mega producer Dave Filoni does, however he’s not telling.
Within the authentic trilogy, Luke is clueless. From after we first meet him shopping for droids till he events with the Ewoks, there may be a lot the farm boy turned Jedi doesn’t know. He learns loads, like who his father and sister are—but what his father was like, the historical past of the Jedi, extra about his mentors Yoda and Obi-Wan, there’s actually no method for him to get that data (without the assistance of some Power Ghosts, after all).
That modified in recent times with the revelation that Ahsoka Tano was nonetheless alive after the occasions of Return of the Jedi, first on Star Wars Rebels and then The Mandalorian. After all, Ahsoka was Anakin’s Padawan throughout The Clone Wars, which implies she not solely knew mainly every part about Luke’s dad, however a lot about his mother, his buddies, the Jedi Order, you identify it. All of which got here to a head on The E-book of Boba Fett earlier this yr when, for the primary time, Ahsoka and Luke appeared on display collectively. However as a substitute of the pair geeking out over one another, that was up to now. They already knew one another and the dialog was, largely, about mutual good friend Grogu. “Will I see you once more,” Luke requested. “Maybe,” she replied.
However should you love Star Wars, an enormous piece of the puzzle is lacking. How did Ahsoka meet Luke? When and the place did they meet? What did they discuss? And, most significantly, will we ever see it? Speaking to Screenrant at Star Wars Celebration, Filoni (Ahsoka’s co-creator, director of the aforementioned Boba Fett episode, and author of the Ahsoka sequence) revealed that he’s give you an concept in regards to the assembly, he’s just undecided when the appropriate time to inform it could be. Right here’s the clip.
So, it’s time to take a position. When might this story doubtlessly occur?
The obvious place is on the upcoming Ashoka present. Although it appears that evidently present will primarily be about Ahsoka and Sabine monitoring down their good friend Ezra Bridger from Rebels, Ahsoka assembly the son of her former Padawan and studying about Anakin’s redemption would definitely be an enormous character-constructing second. Not only for Luke however for Ahsoka too. The final time she noticed Anakin, the 2 fought. So discovering out that he since killed Palpatine and have become one with the Power would, absolutely, deliver her peace and happiness.
However CGI-recreated younger Luke Skywalker is pricey, and to take action simply so he can chat with Ahsoka is likely to be a bit a lot. My superb scenario, and one that may not play out nevertheless it’s price floating on the market, is a guide. A complete guide that’s nearly them assembly. This manner you’ll be able to ship them on an journey, they will sit in a room and have a captivating dialog, and it’s all canon. However you don’t have to fret about becoming it into the construction of one other present, or costly manufacturing prices.
