Star Wars: Ahsoka Episodes 1/2 Review, by Dave Filoni

The universe WAR OF STARSLike all universes derived from the science fiction and fantasy genres, they are endless. Or they can be. The success of the first trilogy of these George Lucas-created films, which are not drawn from comics but have a similarly expansive logic, motivated a long line of spin-offs that went beyond the prequels and sequels: animated series, novels, and fan fiction. Creativity in this sense is endless. Boba Fett, a minor character in the film saga, now has his series; Cassian Andor has his (ANDOR) from a minimal earlier glory thanks villain; while THE Mandalorian, a character created for the saga, has become the most important face of WAR OF STARS in its streaming version. Right in the middle—for a while in the chapters of two of these three series timelines—apparent the character of Ahsoka Tano, who now has her show.

Ahsoka is also a supporting character in the universe. WAR OF STARS from those who appeared in the animated series (Type STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS j STAR WARS: REBELS) and in other literary materials but not in the nine films, central or canonical, if you will, save for a minimal involvement in Off. In any case, he’s an attractive, interesting, and complex character whose main connection to the central saga is that he was once an apprentice to Anakin Skywalker, the future Darth Vader, but then dropped the matter.

In the eight-part series, the first two of which debut on Disney+ on Wednesday, the 23rd, Filoni brings us the situation in which Ahsoka finds himself with the classic text printed on the screen and so dear to the saga, located in the years after the events. from The Return OF THE Jedi, when the Empire is in decline. The woman played by Rosario Dawson tries to find Grand Admiral Thrawn, her main enemy in the previous animated series, who has disappeared from all maps (he is said to be in the so-called Unknown Territories) and poses a potential threat to breathe life into the almost destroyed empire.

But he’s not the only one looking for Thrawn and the classic working method To reach them, you have to search the saga for things and people that lead to other things and other people on an often excessive journey, culminating sooner or later in this encounter. Here, in the classic style of the saga, everything starts with half a beef, and we already have more or less clear enemies and risks. Ahsoka searches for a map that will help her find Thrawn but has no way of deciphering it. For that, he needs the help of Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo), a Mandalorian who was a padawan (apprentice) but broke off the training later. Something like, well, you can imagine…

The complicated relationship between the two will be the focus for at least the first few episodes, as Wren is undisciplined and little interested in sticking to the rules and commitments, which also gets her into trouble as enemies following the same map seek ex-Jedi Baylan Skoll (the recently deceased Ray Stevenson, to whom the first episode is dedicated) and his apprentice Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakhno), all led by Thrawn’s ally Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto).

On the almost exclusively female side of Ahsoka—wwell, there are the droids and other creatures, but I wouldn’t dare put a gender to them—tthere’s also Hera Syndulla (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) of that race, Twi’lek, a pilot who works with her. They are all also looking for Ezra (Eman Esfandi), who has probably disappeared to the farthest reaches of the galaxies in search of Thrawn. And the mysterious three-dimensional map they’re all looking for could, or should, bring them closer together.

Certainly, those who follow all series and all books WAR OF STARS You’ll spot errors in my synopsis, but even for those of us who’ve seen all the movies and some of the parallel series more than once, it’s impossible not to get lost in so many stories, characters, and adventures. The truth is that Filoni manages, at least in the first two episodes, to give the series a classic adventurous spirit reminiscent of the beginning of Mandalorian, with a character like Ahsoka bringing Dawson to life and creating an emotional center. By not wearing a mask on top like Pedro Pascal with his Djin Djarin, the actress of THE 25TH HOUR: DEATH SAFE impresses with her presence, wardrobe, makeup, and fighting skills. It’s a good base to support the plot.

The adventure has just begun, and it is not convenient to advance too far. There are several confrontations in the first two episodes, and the first ends surprisingly and shockingly. There is a strong axis on master-apprentice relationships—a classic of the saga—as Ahsoka owned Anakin, one Wren, and owned Hati Skoll. In all cases, it is the Padawan Rebels who don’t want, doubt, or come into conflict with them athem at the time of taking on the difficult task that luck has brought to them. After the famous journey of the hero so dear to the universes of Lucas, the journey now proceeds in the ordinary world and its early stages (doubts, mentors, fears, etc.), but it is suspected that it will soon reach the threshold to plunge into the unknown and experience the riskiest adventures.
