Ahsoka May Return In 'Star Wars Rebels' Season 3

Close

Star Wars Celebration Europe is in full swing, and with it comes plenty of new Star Wars news. Kicking off the event was a panel called Ahsoka's Untold Tales, which focused on detailing the various Ahsoka stories for Clone Wars that never made it to television because of Disney canceling the show.

The panel, featuring Clone Wars and Rebels producer Dave Filoni, Lucasfilm story group executive Pablo Hidalgo and Ahsoka voice actress Ashley Eckstein, went into detail on three specific story arcs that would have transpired after Ahsoka's departure from the Jedi Order.

In her first post-Jedi arc, Ahsoka would have traveled into the seedy underbelly of Coruscant, specifically to level 1313, the same level that was to be the focus of the canceled Star Wars 1313 video game. There, Ahsoka would meet a young smuggler by the name of Nyx Okami, and a romance would blossom between the two.

However, it wouldn't last. Eventually, Ahsoka would return to the surface as an adviser on a special mission to rescue Jedi Master Yoda, alongside Obi-Wan and Anakin. Ahsoka would have taken the two Jedi to the very depth of Coruscant, where, apparently, an ancient Sith temple lurked. There, Ahsoka would battle a mysterious Force user, who, unknown to Ahsoka or Anakin and Obi-Wan, was actually Darth Sidious attempting to thwart their investigation.

The final arc planned for the character would have led directly up to the events of Revenge of the Sith. As Anakin and Obi-Wan are readying to lead a clone army to Mandalore, they are called back by Master Yoda, as they learn Chancellor Palpatine has been kidnapped by General Grievous and Coruscant is under attack.

Just prior to Anakin departing for what fans will recognize as the beginning moments of Revenge of the Sith, he tells Ahsoka how proud he is of her. Then, she is surprised to see that the 501st and Captain Rex have repainted their helmets orange and adorned them with Ahsoka's togruta markings.

It was to be an emotional moment, but sadly, one that never made it on screen. Ahsoka did appear in season two of Star Wars Rebels, where she battled her one-time mentor Darth Vader in the season finale. The end result of that battle left it unclear whether fans would ever see Ahsoka again, but Filoni seemed to hint at the panel that fans can expect to see more of her in the future.

"It doesn't necessarily mean what some of us would hope it means," Filoni says. "But it might be possible to see her again. She might have something to do."

Whether that means Ahsoka flashbacks or her return as a Force ghost or something else entirely, remains unclear, but it sounds like fans haven't seen the last of Ahsoka Tano.
