The upcoming Star Wars: Ahsoka has spent a lot of its advertising to this point exhibiting that our titular former Jedi (performed by Rosario Dawson) is teaming up with members of previous Star Wars Rebels characters. However there’s one essential character from Ahsoka’s previous that hasn’t been mentioned to this point: her previous grasp Anakin Skywalker, performed once more by Hayden Christensen. Up till this level, he’s solely been vaguely referred to in Ahsoka’s earlier live-action appearances—not less than, till now.

If it’s been some time because you’ve seen Star Wars: The Clone Wars or Rebels, recall that the ultimate season of Clone Wars in 2020 noticed Ahsoka study that Anakin was being groomed by Palpatine to slaughter the Jedi and switch to the Darkish Aspect of the Drive. However she couldn’t act on that info as a result of Order 66 actually occurred proper as she realized that Darth Maul wasn’t bluffing. Like the other Jedi survivors, she had to enter hiding, and the 2 didn’t reunite till Anakin had been Darth Vader for over a decade and fought one another. Vader survived that combat, and Ahsoka was thought to have died earlier than Ezra saved her via the World Between Worlds, which can also be anticipated to play an enormous function on this present.

So yeah, there’s loads for Ahsoka the present to work with, and the brand new promo has Anakin throughout it, from Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson) mentioning his legendary standing amongst the Jedi to his voiceover unfold throughout the promo. Not one of the footage is extremely new, but it surely’s good to see Anakin (and Christensen) once more, and truly attending to work together with somebody so essential to him! Like with Obi-Wan Kenobi, it appears to be like as if he’s going to be enjoying an important function within the present via flashbacks, and possibly even previous visions of the person he was. No matter else he would possibly do within the present must wait till Star Wars: Ahsoka releases August 23 on Disney+.
