Pivotal Ahsoka Scene Coming in Season Two of Rebels!

“I was drawing and storyboarding probably one of the most critical things I’ve ever drawn and staged at my job at Lucasfilm…this really, really, really, really, really, really, really important moment that I had turned over in my head many times, dealing with Ahsoka…I’ll never forget that.”

The quote above is from Dave Filoni.

He’s talking about the scene he’s looking forward to fans seeing most in season two of Star Wars Rebels.

He goes on to elaborate a little more about the scene.

“It was kind of a nice point where all things came together for me. And that stuff that I staged, that particular scene, and everything surrounding it…I’m very excited for fans to see. That’s going to be a big one. When it happens, you can ask me, you’ll say, ‘Was this the thing?’ and I’ll say, ‘Yeah,’ and I can go into more detail about it.”

So is Dave talking about a final showdown between Anakin and Ahsoka? Only time will tell.

Stay tuned for season two of Rebels coming later this year! (And check out the entire interview with Dave here.)

Ahsoka Lives!

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.

Notice how her lightsabers are more curved now, like a samurai’s, according to Disney.

She’s got two blue blades, now.

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 😀

Ahsoka's evolution through the years

Ahsoka’s evolution through the years

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.)
