Every Star Wars project leaves us with memories that last a lifetime. These memories include iconic moments fans re-watch multiple times because they never get old. Ahsoka has its share of memorable moments that had everyone buzzing and pressing the replay button. It’s hard to choose them all, so we’ll pick out the 5 most special ones.
Here are 5 most memorable moments from Ahsoka:
1) Grand Admiral Thrawn makes his live-action debut:
He’s strategic, he’s clever, he’s very blue, and most of us never thought we’d see him in live action. Thrawn makes his live-action debut in Episode 6 of Ahsoka, and we find out that he’s been on Peridea all along after he was taken there by the Purrgil at the end of Rebels Season 4. Not surprisingly, he’s been planning his return to the galaxy with the help of Morgan Elsbeth and the Great Mothers. Lars Mikkelsen looks great in blue and makes for a menacing Thrawn. Every scene of his in the series not only proves what a great choice he is to portray the character on-screen but makes us anxious for what his next move will be. If anything, Thrawn has become even more complex and dangerous during his years on Peridea. After suffering a defeat at the hands of the rebels, there’s no doubt he’ll answer back in a way they’ll never forget.
2) Ezra Bridger’s live-action debut:
Eman Esfandi makes his life action debut as Ezra Bridger in Episode 6. This might be the best live-action casting of an animated character. He looks, sounds, and acts exactly like Ezra from Star Wars Rebels and absolutely nails the part in his debut. He has the moves and comic timing to go along and makes for a perfectly goofy Ezra, the one we all grew to love during Rebels.
3) Ahsoka and Anakin meet in the World Between Worlds:
Episode 5, “Shadow Warrior,” is the highest-rated episode of the series on IMDb.com, and for good reason. Full of iconic shots, great acting, and spectacular music by Kevin Kiner, it’s about as close to perfection as possible. As the cherry on the cake, it marks the return of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker. Ahsoka and Anakin meet while she’s unconscious after losing her duel against Baylan Skoll. She confronts her past through flashbacks to the Clone Wars and one final lesson from her Master. Hayden Christensen and Rosario Dawson deliver excellent chemistry as Master and Padawan. Their meeting is not something fans will soon forget.
4) Ahsoka speaks to the Purrgil:
With renewed hope, Ahsoka decides to find Sabine and Ezra and promises to bring them back home. The only way to find them is by traveling with the Purrgil. By communicating directly with them, Ahsoka is able to convince them to take her along on the journey to Peridea. It results in a stunning scene in which Ahsoka steps out onto the deck of her ship and speaks to one of the Purrgil while hundreds of them fly above her. It’s visually beautiful and needs to be watched over and over again. Bonus points go to Kevin Kiner for the befitting score accompanying this scene.
5) Ezra Bridger returns home
A lot has happened in the galaxy since Ezra Bridger disappeared at the end of Star Wars Rebels Season 4. He has plenty to catch up on, and he can do it now that he’s back home. Ezra returns at the end of Ahsoka Episode 8 and is reunited with Hera and Chopper after years. This is a homecoming years in the making, and we can’t wait to see what he does next season, whether he returns to Lothal, and how he reacts when he meets Jacen. For now, it’s great to see Ezra Bridger back where he belongs.
