Excitement for the Ahsoka series is at an all-time high — and is only expected to escalate as the show’s premiere draws nearer. This is a good thing … isn’t it?

The biggest danger with hype in the Star Wars fandom is always that viewers have a tendency to set their expectations too high. It’s not that we should go into every new show, book, or movie expecting the worst. But even with a lower-stakes show like The Bad Batch, people set their hopes so high that they walk out of every season ultimately disappointed.

That’s mostly not a reflection of the story’s quality. But if it’s happening with shows that aren’t big-ticket promises, it’s safe to assume the outcome of Ahsoka — at least where its fans are concerned — is already doomed.

Because many people have unfortunately labeled the show as an unofficial “Rebels sequel,” expectations have already been set for exactly what people want … and will end up demanding as each episode premieres over the next few months.

People are going to want to know where Thrawn and Ezra went. Where Jacen Syndulla is. And — sigh — every single detail we don’t yet know about the World Between Worlds.

It is very possible the Ahsoka series will only answer some of these questions (and others), if any.

Why? Because the Ahsoka show is part of the much larger, ambitious, cluttered Favloniverse. The fewer questions the show answers, the more likely viewers will tune in to future shows (and movies) to finally get the answers they’re craving.

At this point, we shouldn’t expect to have every burning Star Wars question answered in a single show. And maybe, maybe that is okay.

Maybe this will finally be the show viewers learn to sit back, relax, and just have a good time.


Star Wars: Ahsoka arrives August 23 with a two-episode premiere exclusively on Disney+.

Next. One thing might make Ahsoka season 2 possible. dark
