Following the conclusion of The Mandalorian Season 2 and Disney Investor Day, several spinoffs, including the Ahsoka Tano Disney+ series, have been announced. Although very little information is available about the live-action series, which will star Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano, production on the show is now underway.
Ahsoka is Anakin Skywalker’s apprentice for the entirety of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, making her a fan-favorite character from the animated series. Plo Koon, a Jedi Master, found her while on a mission to the Togruta homeworld before she became Anakin Skywalker’s student. Even though Skywalker was her master, Plo Koon was the one who found her. Fans should familiarize themselves with the following information about Ahsoka before watching the anime.
1. During their fight, she was able to hurt Darth Vader
Because Ahsoka and Anakin were close to Padawan and Master, their first meeting was even more emotional. This is shown by the fact that Ahsoka knew about Anakin’s past and likely knew about his relationship with Padmé.
After Order 66, they met again in Star Wars: Rebels, where an epic battle broke out. Darth Vader is one of the strongest people who can use Force, which makes the outcome of this fight even more impressive. Ahsoka Tano can fight as well as Vader, and in the process, she breaks half of his mask.
2. One who has single-handedly defeated an Akul can wear her headdress
The montrals give the Togruta people a sort of edge, but what’s more interesting is where the headdress on top of them came from. Jedi Master Shaak Ti is another Jedi who wears the same hat. This headpiece came from an Akul, a big creature with four legs that causes trouble on the Togruta homeworld.
Tradition says that the headdress can only be worn by someone who faced and beat an Akul alone. It’s not clear when Ahsoka beat one, but she likely did it when she was young after she joined the Jedi Order but before she met Anakin.
3. She can use the Force to turn off lightsabers
Ahsoka Tano can turn off lightsabers with the Force, another thing that makes her stand out. Yoda, one of the best Jedi masters, and The Son, a living example of the Force, can also do this. In The Clone Wars Mortis arc, Yoda uses this power against Asajj Ventress, and The Son uses it against different Jedi.
In Rebels, when she fights the Seventh Sister, she uses this skill to catch her opponent off guard. This proves that she is one of the best Jedi because this is a skill that few other people have.
4. Ahsoka used her power from the light side to clean the Kyber crystal in her Lightsaber
Many people think Ahsoka is a Gray Jedi because she uses white lightsabers, which no other Jedi in the canon do. In the Legends Expanded Universe, it’s shown that Imperial Knights, Force users who worked for the Fel Empire, used white lightsabers. To get away from Order 66, Ahsoka Tano had to leave her lightsabers behind. Later, she heard new Kyber crystals calling to her.
When she found where these crystals came from, she met the Sixth Brother, a dark-side Force user, and they fought. He “bled” the crystals to make them red, but Ahsoka used her light side to clean them up, making them white. This is another example of how deeply Ahsoka is linked to the good side of the Force.
5. She left the Jedi Order for a while
Ahsoka Tano’s choice to leave the Jedi Order was one of the most important things she did. This happened after the Jedi Council wrongly blamed and sentenced her for an attack on the Jedi Temple that killed many Jedi and Padawans. Anakin Skywalker led the investigation that proved she was innocent, but she turned down the Jedi Council’s offer to take her back.
Even so, she would stay close to Anakin, Obi-Wan, Yoda, and the Jedi. She wasn’t interested in joining the rebellion until Bail Organa, Princess Leia’s father, talked to her about it. Many people thought she might be a Gray Jedi because of what she did.
6. She pretended to be dead to avoid Order 66
The final confrontation between Anakin and Ahsoka took place not too long before the execution of all Jedi using Order 66. Many Jedi were killed, and even the clone troopers under Ahsoka’s command fought and attempted to take her life. Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex were able to fake death to elude capture by the Galactic Empire.
They even went to the trouble of fabricating a cemetery market for Captain Rex, which served as the connection between the two events. The engravings on his tomb asserted that he had spent his final minutes murdering Ahsoka, and she had even forgotten to take her lightsabers with her when she fled the scene. This was done to make the presentation more credible.
7. Her last interaction with Anakin was before they saved Palpatine
As his pupil, Ahsoka must have been present during his final moments as a Jedi, and it is intriguing to consider where she was and what they discussed during their last exchange. The novel centered on Ahsoka reveals that their most recent meeting occurred right before Anakin and Obi-Wan sped off to rescue Palpatine from General Grievous during Revenge of the Sith.
Despite her self-assurance and insistence that there was no requirement for it at the time, Anakin displayed care for his former Padawan. The next time they would see each other was after Anakin Skywalker had passed away and Darth Vader had been born.
