‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’: Dave Filoni on Ahsoka’s fate, Master Yoda

“Star Wars” fans let out a collective howl of anguish last year when it was announced that one of the casualties of Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm was the animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” The fan-favorite series was canceled without a satisfactory conclusion, yanked from the schedule of Cartoon Network, where it had aired since 2008. That ultimately made way for a new series, “Star Wars Rebels,” set to premiere on the Disney Channel before moving to Disney XD.

So, when word came that the final 13 episodes of the show’s sixth season would become available to fans on Netflix, the news was met with good cheer. As of Friday, viewers can check out “The Lost Missions,” which will join the previous five seasons on the streaming video service, including some director’s cuts of those earlier episodes.

“The Lost Missions” follows a rift in the Force caused by Ahsoka Tano’s departure from the Jedi Order and the growing menace of Sith lords and apprentices throughout the galaxy. In an interview with Hero Complex last fall, executive producer Dave Filoni teased that the final set of episodes would “really please the diehard ‘Clone Wars’ fans, especially the story arc with Master Yoda.”

However, anxious fans who have been waiting and hoping for final word on the fates of characters introduced within the confines of the series — most notably Ahsoka Tano, the Jedi apprentice to Anakin Skywalker who was introduced in the 2008 “Clone Wars” movie — will have to wait longer. Although the final season provides answers to many of the “Star Wars” mythos’ mysteries, her fate isn’t one of them.

“What’s important to me that came out of ‘Clone Wars’ was to learn from George [Lucas] about big portions of this time period” in the “Star Wars” universe, Filoni said. “While I know the fans might not get every answer they want … we now have all these stories that I believe will come out over the next decade in one form or another.”

Whereas the “Star Wars” prequel films, especially “Episode I — The Phantom Menace,” were criticized for being too juvenile in tone, “The Clone Wars,” set in the years between “Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones” and “Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith,” earned praised for its sophistication. Rather than focus on one or two main characters, the series jumped around the galaxy, telling stories from many perspectives.

“The series really aged up over the years,” said Sean Carey, Netflix vice president of content acquisition. “It went to a darker place and didn’t fit the Cartoon Network brand any longer. So it was a hidden gem that Disney brought to our attention, and we jumped all over it.”

“It’s a fun way to tell a tale,” Filoni said. “Start in a light way we can all identify with and slowly take them into a darker place with more meaning and depth.”

Although Filoni was not able to execute his plan to dovetail the “Clone Wars” series directly into the opening of “Revenge of the Sith,” he did manage to ensure that the new episodes delve further into the mythology of the Force than ever before — and, in doing so, provided an almost biblical level of import to an arc involving Jedi Master Yoda and his journey to understand the roots of that mystic force.

It’s still a cartoon based on a popular space opera, but the passages with Yoda that close out the new episodes use imagery straight out of the Old Testament.

“The story went to a very dark place in ‘Revenge of the Sith,'” Filoni said. “So it was always my plan to come out of the prequel era of ‘Attack of the Clones’ and ‘Phantom Menace,’ which were more lighthearted … to the end, when the [characters] finally see the traps that have been laid for them and be powerless to stop it.”

At this point, Filoni and his creative team have moved on to “Star Wars Rebels,” which is set to premiere in the fall and takes place in the time between “Revenge of the Sith” and “Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope.”

Of the differences between the two series, Filoni told Hero Complex last year: “’Rebels’ will be different from ‘The Clone Wars’ in a couple ways, and one is the decision to stick with one story and one main group of characters. We wanted fans to get to know the new characters and what they are fighting for. Each episode has its own unique story, while still fitting into the much larger picture of what is going on in the ‘Star Wars’ universe. ‘Rebels’ will tell the story of a group of characters — in this way it is more like the original trilogy which followed Han, Luke and Leia — where the prequels showed us the grand scale and political as well as personal.”

Now, as the “Star Wars Rebels” publicity campaign rolls into high gear, he said he’s ready for the reaction from the heavily invested and re-energized fan community.

“I prefer to meet the fans out on the battlefield head-on and discuss things with them,” he said. “I love hearing theories … and I love hearing the passion behind it.”

As for any lingering questions about Ahsoka, Filoni is able to provide these words of calm:

“I’m really protective of that character, having written her and worked alongside George on all of her thoughts and actions,” he said. “One thing I’m really grateful for is even though there’s been a lot of transition at Lucasfilm, everybody here working creatively understands I feel that way and comes to me with questions about her.

“I have a good idea of what happened to her, and I’ll just leave it at that,” Filoni said.

    I Can't Wait, Seriously… The More "Star Wars" The Better!!!

    • Plus says:

      He may know Ahsoka's fate but the kids who've grown up with the show want to see the character, they don't understand studio buyouts and cancelations. They should stop pulling a Khan and just let fans know when they'll see her again.

    • RobinGMS says:

      I'm in Germany and just watched the last two episodes. Don't expect to much. It won't flow in Revenge of the Sith (like ´hey, the chancellor has been kidnapped´) and Asohka doesn't even show up.

    • Muhammad says:

      Yeah I hope I see her in rebels I want her and Darth Vader to meet

  2. Kgenial says:

    “It went to a darker place and didn’t fit the Cartoon Network brand any longer. So it was a hidden gem that Disney brought to our attention, and we jumped all over it.”… What has that guy been smoking?!!! Hidden Gem?!!! Right like nobody knew about it.

    • sfxer says:

      I think he's referring to the last 13 episodes.

      • Cool says:

        I agree there’s no other way to deal with her she’s not in the movies and she’s never talked about in the movies ether. Hello! Lucas film wake up! You shouldn’t have made her in the furat place!!!

  3. klops says:

    let's hope they kill Ahsoka off. it's the only legitimate way to deal with her.

    • Dav Terran says:

      What the hell is wrong with you?!? Kill a character because you don't have any other ideas?? You're pathetic, pablum puking, asinine, non thinker. There's a reason why people like you are not given creative control. Ahsoka is practically the only female Jedi who is a role model for little girls, who deserve to be part of Star Wars as much as anyone. Can you name any other well featured female Jedi? Thought not. Ahsoka is a great character beloved by many (and pretty hot to boot). Maybe your "character" needs to be killed off since we don't know what else to do. That's "legitimate" right?

      • Michael Laemmle says:

        To defend Klops position, I can name a few other characters. For example, Bariss offee was one that was not featured all that much, though many, many fans liked having her in the Clone wars. Also, Padme Amidala and Luminara Unduli were two characters everyone liked. Also, There will be many female characters in Rebels, such as Mara Jade (My favorite female character), Lumiya, Hera, and that mandalorian. Now, to defend Dav's side. There are better ways to make use of ahsoka. One example would be to make her a Hand of the Emperor, because she was betrayed by the jedi, and swore vengeance on them. She could also see (like a Jedi) how "Corrupt' the empire is, and take up arms against "Evil". My position on the matter: I personally hate Ahsoka, but then again, I believe that Jedi are the cancer of the galaxy. I would like to see Ahsoka join the empire.


      Your quick to call names but what you don’t realize is he’s not saying that because they ran out if ideas they should kill her. He is saying that the only good way to take her out of the show is to kill her. I agree with this because as long as she is alive the writers have no reason good reason stop writing her in.

    • Ahsoka Fan says:

      how dare you!

      Ahsoka was a major character in the clone wars, and the audience was able to witness her maturing into what could have been a jedi knight, sure she left but if the disney team have any sense at all they will choose another way to include Ahsoka. Not by killing her off… hopefully.

      Another thing, its kinda frustrating how he dodged the question of what happens to her, he knows that nearly all clone wars fans want to know what happens so stop toying with us!

      • Jedijeb says:

        One thing that is almost for certain, by having Ahsoka leave the Jedi Order, it can be assumed that she was not killed off by Order 66. Leaving her as a force sensitive but not a jedi knight opens many doors for her future. In A New Hope Obi Wan himself commented “Now the Jedi are all but extinct” which means at least some are still alive, so Ahsoka does have a place and possibility to still be around even through the time of the Rebellion and beyond, depending on how long her species lives.

      • Little Soka Rocks says:

        It would be nice if Ahoska was Vader's assassin and, during a fight against Obi Wan, she turns against Vader and he kills her. That would be a nice end, even though I don't like the idea of killing Ahsoka, my favourite character.

      • Jayman says:

        Hey, if you really want to know how long Ahsoka’s species “Togruta ” live, I know. I read on them and the average Togruta lives to be 94 years old. I did some Math with that as well. Provided they decide to. She could easily be in the new movie or movies. If she survives the Galactic Civil War, She would be only 40 or So when the war ends in the Return of the Jedi. And the new movies are only 30 years after that.She would only be 69 or 70 years old. That gives her a 24year life span left. I hope they put her in the new movies. I really do.

      • Cool says:

        Your the idiot!! She’s not in the movies and she’s not talked about ether. That’s the only smart thing to do I mean come they have to kill her off!!

    • Cool says:

      How about Aayla Secura stupid! She’s in the tv show and the movie they could make her a role model for girls if it really maters. But i get your point

  4. Johnny says:

    oh for the love of god will you shut up and tell everyone WHAT HAPPENS TO AHSOKA???????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • @mwanderson says:

      I think an older Ahsoka will appear in "Rebels" … it's a just a feeling but it seems as though someone as smart and creative as Filoni wouldn't just let a great character like Ahsoka flitter away after spending five+ years on her character development. In a way, I see the cancellation of "The Clone Wars" as a blessing in disguise – one that will bring more depth to a sadly missed character. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't get guest appearances from an ageing Obi Wan Kenobi – now called Ben and living as a hermit on Tatooine – along with a wizened old Yoda on Dagobah in "Rebels" …

      • Phillip says:

        No she won't no characters from the clone wars will be in rebels why don't anyone understand that??

      • madash iffrinson says:

        It would be nice to see what happens to ashoka

        Btw your wrong about no clone wars characters in rebles obi wan kenobi will appear aparently alot because he is a credited role

    • I think she will appear in Rebels I'm guessing they didnt hunt her down because she left the Order and she was so close to Anakin

      • Statick says:

        Anakin killed younglings when he turned to Darth Vader. You actually think he wouldn't have given the order have Ahsoka hunt down and killed during the Purge? If I had to guess, after Ahsoka left the Order, she joined up with the Altisian Jedi and when into hiding.

  5. Chris says:

    I do not understand this "Inquisitor" completely defies the rule of 2. Wouldn't this make 3 siths. Sidius, Vader and Inquisitor. I wonder how they will explain this?

    • DonPenguini says:

      Dark Jedi can exist without being Sith.

      Sith was originally a race, then a cult like the Jedi.

      You can be force sensitive or a force user without being a member of either group.

    • Aaron says:

      If you really know star wars. Vader has apprentices that are well most of them a secret to Sidius. So they could some how pull it off.

    • CaptainFordo says:

      There were several inquisitors, and in fact they were not true sith, but merely Dark Jedi. So the rule of two is not broken.

    • Matthew says:

      I think that Inquisitor is not SITH … it's just an acolyte. When Darth Bane came up with rule "There can be only one", he had a few acolytes and restored the Sith Academy on Korriban to learn the ways of the Sith

    • Brad says:

      He wouldn't be a Sith. Dooku had an apprentice (Asajj Ventress), but she was not considered a Sith. Dooku made that very clear many times over. Vader had an apprentice, Galen Marek, who was also not considered a Sith. Even Sidious had an apprentice, Maul, while he was still apprentice to Plagueis. Maul didn't become Darth Maul until Sidious killed Plagueis (just prior to the battle of Naboo). So no, this inquisitor would not be a Sith. Just an Imperial agent trained in the ways of the force. Like many others (Mara Jade for example).

    • adambladetaylor says:

      They're saying he fills the same sort of role that Ventress did. She was Dooku's assassin. The Inquisitor is supposedly Vader's disciple.

    • ggg says:

      Well the rule of two has been a loose rule for the sith. In the clone wars, Dark Acolytes fought for the sith. I believe the Inquisitor will be a dark jedi.

    • Bluegem81 says:

      They technically broke the Rule of Two before. Sidious being the Lord, with first Maul, and Tyrannus/Dooku on the side. He recruits Asaaj Ventress afterward, and after she is dumped, they ‘mold’ Savage Oppress into the perfect killer. And while all THIS is going on, Sidious AKA Palpatine is carefully shaping Anakin into his NEXT – and quite possibly the perfect – Apprentice, since after all Anakin is the Chosen One.

      Now who better to rule the galaxy at large with the Force and the Chosen One at your side, as well as having EVERY system in your grip?

    • @Kalethan says:

      No more than having Maul around did. It actually lends credence to the long standing EU suggestion that the Emperor and Vader had Dark Jedi around. Just speculating, but since Vader was so crippled physically from his fight with Obi-Wan, perhaps it was a way to keep challenging him until the Emperor was able to find a suitable replacement.

    • mac says:

      No because the Inquisitor is nothing more than a Dark Jedi that swears loyalty to Vader and the Emperor. They are not indoctorated in Sith teachings. They are extensions of the Sith's will and a nod also to the EU as the Inquisitors were first introduced in West End Games RPG books.

    • Sopello says:

      There were many inquisitors, but they weren't Sith, just dark force users, trained and used by palpie & vader mostly to find hiding jedi

    • Jessica says:

      Yeah, like Sidious has ever really followed the rule of two faithfully. To be fair, he abandoned that principal to when it suited him and his plans because he knew the time had come for the Sith to take power over the galaxy. Besides, the Inquisitor isn't a Sith. He's more of a Dark Side Acolyte, similar to Ventress.

      • Charlie says:

        Palpatine trained Darth Maul while he was still under the apprenticeship of Plagueis. Only later to kill Plagueis only moments before Darth Maul was defeated by Obi-Wan.

    • Guest says:

      It's been explained before. Dark Acolytes did exist during that time, but they weren't Sith. There can be only two Sith in the galaxy, but dark force sensitives and pretenders were around. It's mentioned in the Darth Plagueis novel in the first couple of chapters.

    • Josh says:

      Dark Side users aren’t all Sith. Inquisitor won’t be Sith just like Ventress or Mara Jade weren’t Sith.

    • Austin says:

      Dave Filoni and the creators of both The Clone Wars and Rebels like to tease the fans with EU references. The Imperial Inquisitors were very common during this time period in the EU- With Mara Jade being one of the more popular. So I assume the Rebels crew is trying to please the EU fans.

    • Dominick says:

      They already defied the rule of 2 a long ass time ago. Episode 1 Darth Siduous and Darth Maul after Mauls "Death" Count Dooku became a Sith, he was a Jedi during Ep 1. Episode 2 takes place 10 years after 1. The 2005 comic Star Wars Visousarys which came out just before Ep3 It shows Count Dooku captured Master Si-Fa-Dios after the order for the clones was put in my guess is he found out about Siduous plot and made the army and was then entersepted by Dooku. It is revealed Grevious was a alien warrior who was badly injuryed and Dooku having froze Si-Fa-Dios in cyro used his blood in a blood transfuse and Grevious was made mostly cyborg. Killing Si-Fa-Dios and saving Grevious. Dooku trained Grevious with a lightsaber although he does not pose the force. After this Dooku finds A. Ventress a nightsister (witch) who posses the power of the force and takes her in. making 3. As well during Seasons 3 and 4 Dooku trys to kill her and takes in Savage Opress Darth Mauls brother who also posses the force and is trained. making 4 sith. During Season 4 and 5 Darth Maul returns by this time Savage is killed near end of 5 and A. Ventress was betrayed but still lives. At season 5s end Darth Siduos, Count Dooku, Darth Maul are alive. Ep3 Beginning shows Dooku being killed. and rise of Darth Vader.

      now MAY 21ST 2014 Darth Mauls story arc from clone wars will b revealed via 4 Dark House comics titled Son Of Dathomire to bring closer to his character. Darth Siduous's last words to Maul were im not going to kill u I have other uses for u. My best guess is Darth maul lives past ep3.

      also Star Wars rebels takes place after 3 but before 4 15 years after 3. 5 years before 4
      Starkiller from The Force Unleashed is also alive at this point.

      Darth Siduous, Darth Vader, Sith Inquistor, Starkiller(Galen Marak), Darth Maul??? so there are possibly 5 sith alive during SW Rebels

    • Tim says:

      Inquisitors are only force sensitives that The Emperor corrupted and used, much like the Hand of the Emperor, Mara Jade. The Master and apprentice relationship is still only two, but they were not the only force users in the Empire.

    • astronomer_bh says:

      When has that stopped sithbefore (Maul anyone?)

    • Direwolf says:

      The Inquisitor is not a Sith Lord…

    • cain says:

      Darth Sidious creates the Rule of One, which makes him supreme Sith overlord and apprentices to be used as tools.

    • Lucy-1997 says:

      The Inquisitor is not a sith, he is a dark Jedi, there is a difference

    • Guest says:

      Sith assassins sith disciples sith lords in infinite amounts as needed for the darkside. Darth Banes rule of two only matters to the two Darths at the highest level of the darkside. Two Darths rule everyone else just takes orders or dies no Jedi consuls voting ever

    • Nehoc says:

      The reason the Sith had the rule of 2 was so that they could infiltrate the republic and take it down without being sensed by the Jedi. Now that they succeeded, the emperor revoked the rule of 2. But even if he did not do this, the rule would not have been broken because the inquisator is not tecknically a Sith.

    • Ken says:

      As soon as Sidius became a Sith Lord he start use The Rule of One he would be the Lord with a couple of apprentices. If he feel that somebody was becoming powerful he just destroy it. Darth Plagius was planning the same, to be the only Lord with one apprentice, but we know what happen to Plagius.

    • Captain Wolffe says:

      they never followed that rule in the clone wars. I mean come on, there were Asajj Ventress, Savage Oppress, Darth Maul, Count Dooku, and the Emperor all in the same season.

  6. andy says:

    ok guys, nice infos but let's get serious now and stop kidding us – you know what we want, we know what we want so don't be a |_| … tell us what happend to ahsoka tano and even if it takes a complete spin-off to do so!

  7. Bluegem81 says:

    If you guys kill Ahsoka…

    I don’t think the Force would be with you anymore.

    If anyone remembers that ‘trip’ to Ordos (That place with the Father, Son, and Daughter), Ahsoka saw a vision of her future self, who stated that if she stayed with Anakin, then she wouldn’t have a future. Walking away from the Order during the last episode of Season 5 probably saved her life…PLEASE LET THIS BE SO!

  8. Kondorr says:

    The Inquisitor is not Sith, he is a pawn of the Sith, a user of the dark side of the force… this does not make him a dark Jedi or Sith…

  9. Stache says:

    Could Netflix pick up Tron Uprising for a season two conclusion as well? All will be right then!

  10. lool says:

    What about Rex and the 501st

    • carlos says:

      They pretty much became a part of the Imperial Army. Battlefront 2 is about the 501st and shows their transition from the Republic Army into the Galactic Empire.

    • Logan Thurman says:

      Rex is now a Bounty Hunter working for the Rebellion to make money so he can pay for his rent at his friends place.

    • Michael Laemmle says:

      I'm not sure what happens next with rex, but the 501st becomes "Vaders fist", they hunt down jedi

    • tony says:

      Dude they died

    • qwertyuiop says:

      The 501st, if you don't know, became "Vader's First." Being the greatest troopers out there, they wouldn't be released so easily. As for Rex, there are theories, some have said that he had become and Imperial Commander, some have said that he was executed after showing loyalty to a Jedi, others had simply left it as retired or killed in battle. Your choice, unless Disney releases an official storyline for this one character.

    People are so typical. It's okay to praise "The Clone Wars" to the sky, because most fans wanted the Prequel Trilogy to be mainly about the Clone Wars. They wanted a similar feeling to how the Rebellion played a role in the Original Trilogy.

    The Original Trilogy was NOT told from many perspectives. It was mainly told from the perspectives of a few characters . . . namely Luke Skywalker. And to praise "The Clone Wars" for being more sophisticated than the cinematic Prequel Trilogy . . . and at the same time, ardently embrace the Original Trilogy, which was NOT a sophisticated piece of art (the characterization was more black-and-white than either the PT or TCW), strikes me as incredibly hypocritical.

    • not surprising says:

      what? you're JUST finding out that OT fanatics are hypocrites? They've been bashing the PT for reasons both logical and illogical.

      • Talo12 says:

        I bash the prequel trilogy because of the shitty CGI, Hayden Christensen's wooden acting, really shitty romance scenes (I'm looking at you Episode 2), too many subplots (most of them were done terribly or were unnecessary), and Jar Jar Binks. Not praising them or anything, but I really love Belated Media's rewriting of the prequel trilogy. Hell, if I get enough time, I'll write up a script of it, find some people to do voice acting, and do a CGI movie of this in Source Filmmaker.
        Damn, I started rambling. I did not mean to do that.

  12. StarWarsFAN says:

    Oh Yes!!! Cant wait to see more of Star Wars cartoons and movies! Why didn't they do a full of season 6, why it so short? And yes, we need to see Ahsoka

  13. Roy says:

    Hopefully rebels will bomb and they will bring back clone wars at least till conclusion. If Disney can sell the show to netflix, no reason they couldn't have bought out Warner and moved Clone Wars.

  14. Nober says:

    This last season of The Clone Wars honestly brought tears to me, not for the fact that it was sad which it was but for the fact of it ending. It has been a great series which has touched the hearts of a lot true Star Wars fans. Now that the series has ended, there leaves a huge void which can't be filled. I can only hope that Disney reconsiders putting an end to it for I don't know what is to come with Star Wars Rebels.

    • Ajz9944 says:

      Agreed I loved this show and ahsoka I think they had bigger plans for her I think that why she said to her master that’s she just need time to figure this out with out the help of the council or her master

  15. M says:

    Ahsoka is to girls what Luke was to boys. A few girl Jedi were briefly shown in Revenge of the Sith. However, Ahsoka is the only girl jedi that was actually developed as a character. My daughter loves Star Wars and loved Leia and then Padme. But when she first saw Ahsoka, she forgot about the princess and queen. I’m hoping that Ahsoka shows up in “Star Wars Rebels” or better yet in “Episode VII”.

    I’ve been on the wrong end of cancelled tv shows many many times. As an adult, I was crushed knowing that Ahsoka just walked away and the series came to an abrupt end. My daughter was devastated, as I’m sure all Star War girls were. Everyone knows what happens to Obi-Wan and Anakin, etc. but what about Ahsoka? With the news of “Star Wars Rebels”, my daughter was optimistic, and is looking forward to the show. However, she was a little put-off that the only jedi will be a boys, even-though Sabine looks to be a strong girl character.

    I’m a little glad that this article offers a tiny glimmer of hope for Ahsoka to show up outside clone wars.

    I grew up with Star Wars, and just ignored Princess Leia. But once I had a daughter, I could finally understand why Leia was important. I’m hoping Ahsoka isn’t just mothballed for eternity because of some corporate buyout.

    • Leon says:

      I'm honestly kind of happy we get a female Mandalorian warrior as our awesome girl character for this series. Female Jedi are badass, don't get me wrong, but it's satisfying to see a girl keep up with the best of 'em because of her own unique abilities and intuition rather than from some innate superpower.

    • Jayman says:

      I hope she doesn’t get mothballed either. From what I have heard and read it sounds like she will be for a while. I will hate Disney forever if they screw up my favorite movie and fantasy realm! I also sympathize with you on the on the daughter thing too. I think and feel that they are being selfish and foolish to leave such a void in the story like they have. I think they are losing money and respect. I think they should have finished the clone wars before they even thought about Rebels. It is only to keep what makes the money going instead of risking a whole new show. Serious question though, Does any body else have the feeling that whoever Disney has put in charge of the Star wars project may not be a star wars fan and may even have it out for star wars to ruin it on purpose? Any body think about that? Or is it just me being perinoid?

  16. jack says:

    Ashoka is furious about getting kicked out of the Jedi order and becomes the new leader of the Sith in the upcoming movies.

    • Shamsuddin Channa says:

      She was not kicked. She left Jedi council.

      • kalel78 says:

        no. she was kicked.. only AFTER she was acquitted was she let back in.. and she said no thanks. id be ticked at the order at that point as well.

    • Shakamakillya says:

      Oh, you poor deluted man. She lef the Council becouse she believed there is no trust among them.

      • Jayman says:

        I agree with,sham and shak ,Ahsoka is not week willed,and to kind to ever join the sith,.It would not suit her. She may be Anakin’s padawan, but she mainly inherited his good qualities, they say this in the season 5 commentary, and I am sorry, I have to say that even though I am a guy, Ahsoka Tano is my favorite Jedi. Before she came into it I was always torn between Anakin and Obi, they are both awesome but I never liked any of them more than the other, but then comes a little female padawan that is like Anakin in back sass and later on skill,but also later possesses the wisdom of Obi-Wan,my favorite qualities of the two. I think I know her character pretty well I think, but I won’t truly know that until we see what they have planned for her. And I know some will argue that,”Ahsoka is no longer a Jedi,” thatis not true, yes she quite the Jedi order,but there is a reason that she quites,one it saves her life most likely,two,who wouldn’t be alittle betrayed that the people you thought knew,trusted, and cared for you, just kick you out at the request of the senate for a crime that they should know she did not commit. ,she deserves to feel abandoned,the Jedi are Defenders of the Week and Innocent, and now they have one of their own that is helpless against the Republic Military and trying to stand for what is right,and Innocent in truth, and what do they do? They run in fear of what the Senate will think,leaving Ahsoka and Anakin alone in their struggle to prove she is innocent, I don’t know about you guys,but that is the definition of desrtion to me,and clones get court marshalled for deserting the battlefield,so why should they not be hipocrits for saying one thing and doing another. Because of this, it is my opinion that Ahsoka Tano,Obi-Wan, and Anakin (for what time he has before becoming Vader.) Are the last True Jedi, so I believe that even though Ahsoka leaves, whether she realizes or not,is and always will be a Jedi,and my opinion is already a Jedi Knight. I mean what trial would prove her metal more than what she went through? Just saying. Sorry I just have slot to say about this subject. Any one else agree with me?

        You couldn’t of said it better jayman I total agree with what you just said but I do think that ahsoka is a Jedi that can kill baser but just can’t cause of her connection to him

  17. Bruce Morton says:

    I thought that between each movie there would be a spin off TV series and if so it should be the X-wing series that would give you the Wedge Antilles storyline and the rogue squadron one too and bring in the new characters from the expanded univers.

    The new films should start bringing the the expanded univers and the best start there would be the Thrawn trilogy followed the the Jedi search trilogy.

  18. tonykrane says:

    I see some of you are truly giving this some thought, just like me! As true fans we all shuddered when Ahsoka walked down those steps. We all need to understand that it was just another mindblowing cliffhanger moment!

  19. Hopeful says:

    I'm just hoping that they take what they have learned (story wise and character) from Clone wars and brings it to the creation of the new movies.

  20. PDXSerric says:

    Once again Disney assimilates all…

    You started Clone Wars with a 2hr movie. How about finishing it up wiht a 2 hour conclusion AND that dovetail you want, yes?

  21. PMV says:

    As many of you have pointed out I believe they spent more time creating un-needed story lines, Jar Jar and Mace teaming up comes to mind. They should have spent more time or added at least one more episode to give Ahsoka a better Arc. I just finished watching the Clone Wars episodes for the first time and was devastated when she left the order. I 100% agree that the Jedi council had fallen from the pedestal in which they perched atop for a long time. I believe wholeheartedly that Ahsoka had the biggest impact on Anakin. She was the only he really trusted (you could see his faith wavering with Padme) and when she left you could tell they were both devastated.

    Someone pointed out that something must have happened after the final end of the series to make Anakin completely turn…..for this I believe that Ahsoka died or something worse. You can see the way the two were connected. It was not just Anakin leaving the order and running away with Padme he completely turned to the dark side. Anakin was so faithful to everyone he loved. I believe no one came to him and showed him how to really handle his attachment.

    Sorry this was long.

    • Shamsuddin Channa says:

      I totally agree with you. They can't just abandon Ashoka. There are just so many loop holes. They should have made atleast one episode regarding ashoka. I believe they don't even know what to do with her.
      If you look at Filoni's Comment

      “I have a good idea of what happened to her, and I’ll just leave it at that,”

      It clearly shows that they are trying to settle down fans while originally they don't even know what to do with Ashoka.

  22. GHOSTWOLF says:

    I watched the final 13 episodes on Netflix. One problem there was 1 small bit with Ahsoka but NOTHING about her fate. One of the most popular figures in the series and NO conclusion, REALLY???

  23. John Barnes says:

    well there is no doubt that she will be in the Star Wars Rebels series(she is on the trailer logo…older too) but im more interested in finding out if she will actually be in Episode VII.

  24. Matthew says:

    I don't see why Ashoka couldn't show up in Rebels. She walked away from the Jedi order. She's out there some where. It was silly to cancel Clone Wars….it would be silly not use Ashoka in the new series.

  25. 00000 says:

    “I have a good idea of what happened to her, and I’ll just leave it at that,” Filoni said.

    And what happened? Ugh, I'm going to have to wait for like 5 years now. I hope they release a comic on her.

  26. Car Wars says:

    Perhaps we find out what happens to ahsoka in Star Wars rebels? I am just gutted that she left in season 5, and that many mysteries still remain unanswered. Perhaps a Maul could come in rebels.

    As to how Ashoka dies… I don't know…

  27. eastacio says:

    “The series really aged up over the years,” said Sean Carey, Netflix vice president of content acquisition. “It went to a darker place and didn’t fit the Cartoon Network brand any longer. So it was a hidden gem that Disney brought to our attention, and we jumped all over it.” Wait… "Didn't fit the CN brand any longer"? Um… does he even watch the CN? *rolls eyes* Maybe it was "hidden" to the likes of him, but not to the countless fans out there who watched it. Translation: "It's a successful series and we're pleased it already comes with a large audience built-in. Ka-ching!"

  28. halfvulcan says:

    Darth Vader’s first use of the carbonite freeze trap. On Ahsoka. And it works. And later Darth reveals to Luke that he must free her. No, I don’t know this is how it will turn out. It’s just something I came up with and it would give her a way to show up in the new movies.

  29. Master says:

    hmmmm…know you that she doesn't appear in the new film.hhhhmmm….mysterious are the ways of the force are they not ;)

  30. George says:

    Is it just me, or does rebels look like it BELONGS on disney channel? Clone Wars actually went pretty mature, though still corny. rebels just looks like crap. A disservice to starwars fans, aimed at making money off small children.

    • Jessica says:

      I agree with you. I looked at the picture of the clones armor. They are too shinny and aren't mature looking. The new Star Wars rebels coming up looks like a bust. With the new characters and all.


  31. Andy says:

    Perfect way to have Ahsoka come in Rebels:

    Kanan is mentoring Ezra but then dies in an epic season finale. Ahsoka shows up barely saving the team and agrees to continue showing Ezra the way of the Jedi. Kanan would go all Ned Stark. Talk about climactic.

    • Jayman says:

      That would be interesting, but sad on kanan’s part. I would like to see her in rebels and hope they put her in the new movies. One can only hope and send polite fan mail to request such a thing. If you piss the writers off it could ruin it for every body. But we need them to know where we the fans stand on the matter. And a wise man said something to me I truly take to heart on this ,” The minute we stop complaining is the minute we say that we are okay with what they are doing.” I don’t know about you guys and girls, but I am not done complaining about what they have done yet. Are you? We can make a difference if we all come together and make them realize that they are making some mistakes. We can choose if we want to risk Disney ruining star wars. ” All it takes for Evil to succeed is for good people to do nothing.”

  33. JamJam says:

    Season 6 was ok. Final Yoda centric episodes were amazing. The most brilliant episodes of the series (excluding only the chosen one arc).

    My hope is new movies will add additional “What happened too…..” information. I’m personally for Ahsoka having gone back to lower levels of the capital and hey while down there she helps save a battered but still breathing Mace Windu who could tell her what’s up and together they vacate the plant for the Outer Rim. Easy to do they wouldn’t know anyone else survived and no one would know they survived so welcome to why they don’t reappear until episode 7 or later and the aftermath of the Emperor’s downfall. My hopes for her at least and getting some answers from upcoming sources (maybe she’ll appear in Rebels or at least get a mention).

  34. Jessica says:

    That was not even a ENDING!!!!! The last thirteen episodes left a major cliff hanger about yoga. Who won? The republic or separatists? Did they find out the chancellor was the bad guy? What about the tumors in the clones heads? Did they find out those were separatists doing? What about Ashoka? WHY WOULD THEY LEAVE IT LIKE THIS???I looked at the pictures of the new Star Wars Rebels coming up, and the troopers armor look too shiny. The regular one on Star Wars the clone wars was much better. They also replaced all of the characters.

    One question…. Are we going to see Ashoka and anakin and obi one, etc……..on the new Star Wars coming up..!!?!?!?!?!?

  35. Jessica says:

    THEY NEED A ENDING!!!!!!!!! They just Canceled STAR WARS THE CLONE WARS!!!!
    Does Padme and anakin get back together, what about Ashoka , what about the tumors still left in the clones brains, what about revealing the chancellor was the bad guy? Which side won? What is the future of the jedi order? They have to have a good ending, after all, it called Star Wars the clone WARS. Don't tell me that are not going to have a good ending. Fans have been on the edge of their seat waiting for a good end or result, but have been crushed by it.

    They need Star Wars the clone wars BACK! Who would CANCEL STAR WARS THE CLONE WARS .
    just look at the pictures of the clones armor on the new Star Wars rebels. They are not supposed to look that way! They are too shiny and not really armor like, like on the clone wars. Star Wars rebels looks like a bust.BRING BACK THE CLONE WARS!!!

    • Richard says:

      I don't get why everyone is saying that the Clone Wars didn't have an ending. The Clone Wars do have an ending…its called Episode III Revenge of the Sith. All those questions you asked were answered in Episode III (except for the one about Ahsoka). Really, with season 6, the series came pretty close to the beginning of Episode III, so I thought they achieved the dovetail rather nicely.

      Let's go through your questions and I'll answer most of them. *Warning: Spoilers* "Do Padme and Anakin get back together?" Yes and then Anakin kills her by going to the dark side. The tumors are still in the clones and aren't discovered by the Jedi since order 66 went off with little opposition. The chancellor is revealed as Lord Sidious in Episode III and is confronted by Mace Windu. The Republic technically wins the Clone Wars, but after the war is won Palpatine has all the Jedis killed and declares the Republic, an Empire.

      It is pretty clear that you have not watched any of the Star Wars movies since you would know that the soldiers in Star Wars Rebels are not clones but are stormtroopers. I'm kind of happy that they are moving away from the Clone Wars. I think that the Mace Windu-Jar Jar storyline is season 6 kind of proves that they were running out of viable story arcs. Rebels will be an opportunity to explore new characters and stories. I was kind of getting tired of Anakin anyway and am welcoming the return of Ahsoka. Unfortunately, I keep running into the same problem when I hear about Ahsoka being a part of the rebel alliance and that is that she will eventually die before the events of Episode IV. If Ahsoka is alive and is a leader in the rebellion, than she and not Luke is the more likely candidate for the leader of the new Jedi Order. But of course she isn't mentioned in the original trilogy, because that character hadn't even been thought of. So to me the only logical choice would be to kill her off during this new Rebels series which would suck but I don't see any way out of it.

  36. william says:

    Rebels? It is a waste of good digital animation to start something new when the old Clone Wars
    was really working well. Disney or whom ever decided to pull the plug and create this Rebels
    show is going to loose a lot of credit.

  37. clatcher says:

    can nobody make out ashokas voice over that helmet its obivious she is that bounty hunter girl cause here voice sounds alot like that without the helmet you can make it out if you replay it a few times and get rid of that helmet voice effect im hoping im right and she is in the new episodes but i think they should have kept going with the clone wars cause everyone is wondering what happened to ashoka or at least i am

  38. clatcher says:

    ok so i was mistaken the bounty hunter girl is not ashoka but i am still hoping she is still somewhere in this rebel show that she will eventually show up somewhere cause by the end of the tv show she was the best character in the show i thought but i absolutly loved her being in that season so i just hope she shows in this new season

  39. Brenton Morrison says:

    Wow Cartoon Network and Disney are both stupid like continue the clone wars my god you can't just jump around I am definitely not watching rebels unless they finish the clone wars first I am so ticked off I want to know what happens with the Braun washing of clones and yoda's weird journey as well as what happens to asoka like fix this crap go back to the clone wars and finish it before you start stupid rebels my god your ratings will drop now if you don't finsh the clone wars

    • Ryan says:

      Yah I won’t watch until clone wars is finished so many characters that we don’t know what happens to them like come on! We want to know. And is it me or does the STs in rebels look like boble heads?

  40. Ryan says:

    Everyone’s waiting for Asoka and I’m over here waitin for echo to come back!

  41. Sam says:

    TCW and SW Rebels can not be in better hands, Dave Fillioni is by far the best concerning story arcs like the ones we witnessed in TCW, I wait anxiously to see these new ones…. I just hope SWR ties up some loose ends from TCW.

  42. Harrison says:

    If Ahoska dosnt come back in the new series or the new movie half of its viewers will be lost they at least need to explain whet happened to her

  43. Larry says:

    shes the leader of a resistance group, but after learning of what Anikin has done her cuts her connection to the force. Only to have Canan and Ezra tell her how important the Force and the rebellion are. She reconnects to the Force and helps a bit but goes back to whatever she's been doing. But teaches both of them a lesson of some sorts.

  44. Jayman says:

    Excuse me , but how the hell do you know this?if I may ask. I just want to know if you are legit. Or just yanking our chains. Don’t post stupid crap! Unless it is true and valid. I hate it when people post fake info. You don’t realize how much you can screw people’s opinions up with fake info. I am dead serious!

  45. Jayman says:

    I should clarify who I am talking to. Larry is who I am directing my last post towards. Sorry for any confussion.

    • Larry says:

      I ment for it to be an idea. I guess I forgot to put those words in sorry.

    • Larry says:

      And to add keep ur crappy attitude off please. No one wants to hear u act like this. It’s sad on ur part. Thank u

      • Jayman says:

        Thank you for replying. I respect those kind words of criticism. Sorry for any inconvenience. Okay? :) Mysincerest apologies. We are all friends here right? I just thought you were some jerk posting false stuff to mess with star wars fans. I have been through that before. Jerks are using our confussion as a means of making fun of us for our devotion to star wars. I am Sorry I thought you were one them. Are we cool?:)

      • Jayman says:

        Oh, and I really did like your idea it sounds like it could work. :) Sorry again if I sounded like a D-bag.

  46. Larry says:

    Thanks and also sorry. I just wish there was more with her the way they left her off was not good at all. It would be a really great idea to put her in. They already made that future version of herself from the clone wars.

    • Jayman says:

      “Yeah, I think that her story needs some more development. It would help if they told us where she goes and what she chooses to do for a living. That could give us a clue as to where she was during order 66 and where we can expect to see her in rebels. I read another interview report or something and he slipped up and mentioned that he and George Lucas where talking about what Ahsoka does when she finds out what Anakin did. He caught himself before he gave any good and juicy stuff. He tried changing the subject with “Not that she is around. Who knows where she is.” That is bull, he does. He knows where she is. Ashley Ecenstein ( Sorry if I spelled her name wrong.) Said that survives order 66. That tells me two things, he is either planning something good for her in rebels and is having problems keeping it to himself. Or he is just messing with us. I think he is planning something good, but we will have to wait and see. I maybe wrong about both. What do you think?

  47. Kite Blaze says:

    Personally, I agree, Ashoka Tano left the jedi order before order 66 was “exicuted”, so she should be alive. I would really like to see her join in Star Wars rebels and work with Kannan Jarrus in Ezra Bridger’s training. I think having to jedi padawans taking on 1 apprentice would be an interesting idea. Which has never before been done in the starwars universe that I am aware of. Personally, I really like Ashoka’s Character because she is reckless like Anakin. I would like to see that character spin off the way Anakin taught her.

  48. robert klock says:

    I too would appreciate including ashoka in the future..come what my. She has been my favorite…at least…give us some form of closure..she saved anakin to go to his fate..she does certainly deserve a finish in context of the series

  49. Moohun1094 says:

    I’m tired of waiting, I want to know what happens to Rex, Ahsoka, Boba, ect… and before I was optimistic about SWR because of Dave Filoni (sorry if I spelled it wrong), but after watching part of the first season of rebels, I’m disappointed to admit that, in my opinion, the new series will never come close to the clone wars, I feel that rebels is just another way for Disney to make money, where TCWs was made by people who are just as much of Star Wars fans as we all are, it’s unfortunate to see such a great thing end.

  50. Robert says:

    IF Disney REALLY wanted to make Profit and fans. They should have a tv spin off of some sort or something along the lines of a storyline just involving Ashoka, and the characters/future characters she will meet in her future after leaving the Jedi order. I’m mean honestly I believe hands down it would be 99% more popular than Star Wars rebels.
