Anakin Skywalker’s Return Makes Star Wars History
The return of Anakin Skywalker in Ahsoka, especially as displayed on this poster, marks the first time a role of this scale is being given to a Force ghost as compared to the brief appearances in films and television series of the past. It’s also the first time the Anakin of the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars series is being brought to life in live-action, as Anakin never addressed Ahsoka in the prequel Star Wars trilogy films. Such a moment was 15 years in the making, truly merging the live-action and animated projects.
Anakin returning at the end of Ahsoka episode 4 has exciting implications for the future of both their characters. Anakin and Ahsoka have a lot to discuss about everything that’s happened since they last saw each other before the Siege of Mandalore and Anakin’s fall to the dark side as Darth Vader. With Star Wars releasing Ahsoka episode 5 in select theaters, there will surely be lots for long-time The Clone Wars enthusiasts to look forward to.
Ahsoka releases new episodes Tuesdays at 6 pm PT / 9 pm ET on Disney+.
