“Star Wars” has at all times favored expansive world-building the place characters spring absolutely shaped from crowded cantinas or a dystopian metropolis, with the sense that a whole historical past has taken place earlier than they appeared on-screen and can proceed on lengthy after. “Ahsoka” is not any totally different in that regard, though it comes with the added complication that such historical past between fundamental characters has been instructed earlier than — each in “The Clone Wars” and particularly “Rebels.” It may appear unusual to listen to {that a} present titled “Ahsoka” is definitely extra of a sequel to these reveals slightly than a narrative as laser-focused on a self-contained storyline as, say, “Andor” was, however that speaks to how a lot the one-time Jedi Padawan turned intertwined with the scrappy band of rebels based mostly on the planet Lothal and their shared roots going again to the Clone Wars.

Ahsoka herself (voiced by Ashley Eckstein) first arrived on the scene in 2008’s slightly poorly-received “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” animated function movie, overcoming the preliminary wave of fan backlash to turn out to be one of the crucial in style “Star Wars” characters ever all through her run on the spin-off animated sequence.
