The Importance of ‘Star Wars Animated Series Before Watching ‘Ahsoka’
The Mandalorian was a great attraction for many ‘Star Wars fans as it allowed them to jump into the story with just enough knowledge about the franchise without having to know everything about it. However, as seasons have progressed, including the upcoming premiere of ‘The Book of Boba Fett’, the Disney+ series has become a festival of cameos from a larger universe.
Now, we are gearing up for the release of ‘Ahsoka‘, which will feature Rosario Dawson as one of the most important characters in the franchise. However, if you never paid much attention to the animated series, then you might have missed some essential knowledge about the characters.
The Animated Series You Need to Watch
Ahsoka Tano was Anakin Skywalker’s apprentice in the ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series and later reappeared as an adult in ‘Star Wars Rebels.’ If you haven’t watched them, you’ve missed out on some magnificent series that fix many holes in the movies and are also great on their own.
To prepare for the release of ‘Ahsoka’, you’ll only need a few specific chapters, according to Dave Filoni, the director of the series. He recommends starting with episode 10 of the fourth season of ‘Star Wars Rebels’ or the entire fourth season.
By watching these episodes, you will understand who Hera Syndulla (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo), Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) are, and everything that seems to kick off the upcoming series, ‘Ahsoka.’
The Perfect Time to Give the Series a Chance
While ‘Ahsoka’ is set to premiere in August 2023, it is still the perfect time to give the series a chance if the fourth season of ‘Star Wars Rebels hooks you as much as Filoni promises.
