Well, it’s official! Ahsoka Tano, everyone’s favorite padawan (right?), has returned to assist the crew of the Ghost. Summoned by Chopper and appearing for a few brief moments at the end of the Star Wars Rebels season finale, the character Fulcrum was revealed to be none other than Snips herself, two
green (whoops, looks like they’ve changed to blue ones) lightsabers and all.
While she looks a lot different, we’ve got to remember that a lot of time has passed. She’s in her early thirties now! Her new design in the style of Rebels will take me a little getting used to, but underneath she’s the same Snips we know and love 😀
sigh, it seems like only yesterday she was training at the temple, playing with R2, hanging out with her B.F.F. Barriss Offee- wait, nevermind that last one.
In a USA Today article, Filoni and crew say that she’ll definitely play a bigger part in Season 2 of Rebels, although she certainly won’t have a bunk on the Ghost anytime soon. TCW was her show; I’m just glad she’s getting the chance to return in Rebels.
And with Darth Vader coming into the picture in the final seconds of the episode, the wait for Season 2 just got a lot less bearable. (I like the chances for a Vader/Ahsoka reunion in the season premiere, personally.)
