The first two episodes of Ahsoka have already seen the light of day. Dave Filoni’s new Star Wars series has been highly anticipated by fans, especially Rebels fans. The new project was sold as a kind of continuation of the animated series. And because of that, some storylines that were left open at the end of this part have been resumed.
In the fourth season of Star Wars: Rebels, Jedi Ezra Bridger sacrificed himself to defeat Grand Admiral Thrawn and free his homeworld of Lothal from the Imperial siege. To achieve victory, he lured a group of Purrgils (space whales), who snatched the villain’s ship containing Ezra and the Admiral and jumped into hyperspace.
That was before the fall of the empire. And Ahsoka is set after that, so both characters have been gone for many years. There were even rumors of his possible death from such a wild ride. But with the new series, not only has it been confirmed that they live, but also where they are.
Ahsoka surprised her. Well, the Star Wars canon has changed forever. Thanks to the map that the protagonist recovers and that the young Shin Hati steals from Sabine, something is discovered that has never existed in the saga. There is a second galaxy. Once the map is fully displayed, it looks like there are quite a few more.
Morgan Elsbeth, a loyal follower of Thrawn, manages to open the artifact and discover the path that leads from the known galaxy to the unknown. “This is our galaxy. And that is our destiny.” There they banished Grand Admiral Thrawn,” he explains to Shin Hati and his teacher Baylan Skoll as a path is formed between the two galaxies, connecting them.
“The Road to Peridea?”, the latter asks. “The kids of the Jedi Temple call it that, but those are stories. Fables” adds the old fallen Padawan of the dark side. “Fables based on truth,” Morgan replies. The route would be the one taken by the Purrgils at the Battle of Lothal.
Despite Baylan’s doubts, Morgan is fully convinced that Thrawn is there. And therefore it will also be Ezra. The mission of Ahsoka, Sabine, and Hera, as well as the series’ villains, will be to get there. And that’s where Thrawn’s side leads.
At the end of the second chapter, Morgan Elsbeth is shown building hoops to jump into hyperspace, in the style of the hoops used by the Jedi in the Republic. Only these are much larger and require much more energy if they want to reach the second galaxy. The third episode of Ahsoka will premiere on Disney+ on Wednesday, August 30.
