Ahsoka, episode 5: the reference to The Clone Wars explained

How the Disney Plus series took us back 15 years to the time of the first Star Wars animated series.

Star Wars played Back to the futurein episode 5 ofAhsoka. Taking advantage of the heroine’s passage in The World Between Worlds, she was able to go back in time to her past alongside her master Anakin. The goal: to offer fans a huge nod to the old Star Wars: The Clone Wars broadcast between 2008 and 2014! Spoiler alert!

Indeed, if the series Ahsoka is clearly the direct continuation of Star Wars: Rebelsit is also a bit of a continuation of The Clone Wars. The first animated series derived from the George Lucas universe was the first to introduce the character of Ahsoka, Anakin’s Padawan during the famous Clone Wars. His adventures then took place between Episode II and Episode III of the main franchise, before the change of his master into Darth Vader and up to Order 66. Dave Filoni, who was already in the game at era, therefore imagined this episode 5 ofAhsoka as a tribute, directly replaying certain sequences of Clone Wars in live action.

We first see his first steps on the ground in what we guess is the Battle of Ryloth. She was only a child then and Ahsoka is then played in the flesh by Ariana Greenblatta young actress who already played the young version of Gamora in Avengers: Infinity War and which we also came across in barbie recently.

Above all, episode 5 ofAhsoka recreated some moments from the Siege of Mandalore. This epic moment from season 7 of THey Clone Wars concludes the animated series. Older, the young budding Jedi, contacted by Bo-Katan Kryze, comes with her army to help retake Mandalore dominated by the awful Darth Maul (yes, the same one who we thought was dead at the end of The Phantom Menace). Ahsoka went there with Captain Rex – who we meet in the episode – as well as half of the 501st clone battalion, to face Mandalorians with very identifiable red helmets.

At that time, Ahsoka had already left the Jedi Order and Anakin wasn’t there. This is why he is surprised, in this episode 5, not to remember these events. It must be said that the siege of Mandalore takes place right during Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, while Anakin was with Obi-Wan Kenobi to rescue Chancellor Palpatine, who had been kidnapped by General Grievous…

The wink is therefore total. It remains that this Hayden Christensen remastered really looks like Carrie Coon…
