Ahsoka’s dual episode premiere on Disney+ sent waves across the Star Wars fandom. Episodes 1 and 2 planted seeds for what is sure to become another memorable installment in the franchise. After the premiere, fans took to the internet to share their thoughts, feelings, and ratings. As of now, the series stands a strong chance of success with overall fans,

Initially, many people questioned the outcome of this premiere. It’s valid to be a bit skeptical of the quality and overall performance of yet another mini-series. However, creator Dave Filoni ensured this dual premiere delivered on its hype. As previously reported by Movieweb.com, Ahsoka has performed exceptionally well on Rotten Tomatoes. Only two episodes in, the mini-series has landed an impressive 83% audience score out of 1,000+ reviews, followed by an 89% on the Tomatometer.

Multiple aspects of the premier allowed it to gain such traction. First and foremost, Ahsoka was marketed and advertised as a continuation of the cliffhanger that concluded Star Wars Rebels. The journey to finally locate Ezra Bridger has officially begun, but along with Ezra, the danger of Grand Admiral Thrawn draws near. Both Thrawn and Ezra have been lost in space since before the fall of the Empire, a time when terror and fear were widespread throughout the galaxy. The race to the unknown galaxy between Ahsoka Tano and Morgan Elsbeth has people on their toes and anxiously awaiting future episodes within the coming weeks.

Additionally, Episode 1 featured the debut of two eye-catching Force-users. Both Baylan Skoll and Shin Hati paved destruction from the very first minutes of this series. While we don’t know much regarding the two at this time, it’s been confirmed that Baylan Skoll was once a Jedi who disappeared during the Clone Wars, perhaps after the events of Order 66. It’s also been rumored that the ruthless duo will be announced as Dark Jedi rather than Inquisitors or Sith. Many also believe that Baylan’s saber being a shade of Orange is another giveaway that the two are far more unique than any Force wielder we’ve seen in the canon.

Six episodes remain to be released in the highly anticipated series. While off to an impressive start, some in the fandom are still on the fence regarding the show and believe they need to see more to make an honest judgment. Regardless, Ahsoka is set to be packed with action, answers, and maybe even more questions!
