COURTY

Saturday 5th of December 2020

I want so much to see in a series what Ahsoka Tano and Rex did after the events of The Clone Wars Victory and Death: how Gregor and Wolffe had their chips removed, present in their heads serving to trigger Order 66, and how they ended up with Rex on Seelos aboard an AT-TE; when and how Ahsoka met Bail Organa and Hera Syndulla; what Ahsoka did with his other lightsaber; how Ahsoka got his new white lightsabers; what Barriss Offee has become: if she saw Ahsoka again and after reconciling himself to sacrifice to save his life; Maul fighting Darth Vader; how Maul got his new lightsaber; if Ahsoka saw Riyo Chuchi, Yaddle, Quinlan Vos, Lux Bonteri, Trace and Rafa Martez, Saw Gerrera, Ursa Wren, Bo-Katan Kryze, Korkie Kryze, Jar Jar Binks, and Mace Windu if he survived. I so hope that Ahsoka Tano will appear in season 2 of The Mandalorian with Sabine Wren. If they do a series on Ahsoka Tano, I hope so much that this character's story begins when she leaves the Jedi Order, and that it is shown what she has become until the events of The Clone Wars Gone With A Trace: If after leaving the Jedi Order, she reviewed Asajj Ventress and teamed up with her on a mission; but also Barriss Offee and talk with her after discovering her betrayal, in order to reason with her and eventually reconcile. I would like to see in a series what Ahsoka did after being saved by Ezra Brider in Star Wars Rebels "A World Between Worlds" until she finds Sabine Wren to leave for the search for Ezra Bridger in "Family Reunion and Farewell Part II". I look forward to seeing Ahsoka with Sabine on their quest to find Ezra Bridger. I so want to see Ahsoka meet Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, Han Solo, Force ghosts of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda. I so want to see Mace Windu again in an episode of a TV series sequel to Star Wars III Revenge of the Sith after he survived his fall (and to be shown how the Jedi Master survived his fall afterwards being sent out the window by Darth Sidious), as Luke Skywalker, after Darth Vader cuts off his right hand, in Star Wars V The Empire Strikes Back. I would especially like to see Mace Windu see Ahsoka Tano again after Order 66. I hope so much that while Ahsoka Tano's voice is heard in Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker, that doesn't necessarily mean she's dead, even though the majority of the Jedi we hear are dead. But if she really died in Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker I hope, not only that it is well after her quest with Sabine to find Ezra Bridger, but that it is not by being killed by an enemy, but something something similar to the death of Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, or Ben Solo. I would have liked Ahsoka Tano to become a Jedi again after the founding of the New Jedi Order by Luke Skywalker, as that would mean that her pain when she left the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars is well healed. Indeed when she left the Jedi Order, she was very upset because she had lost confidence in the Jedi who did not believe in her innocence (except for her master Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi) even after they admitted their wrongdoing and offered to reinstate her. I would love to see Ahsoka with Rex come back to the moon near the graves of the clone troopers with other characters including Luke, Leia, Han, Lando and Chewie. I so want to see Ahsoka Tano seeing Obi-Wan Kenobi again on Tatooine or before his exile on Tatooine after Order 66.
