Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy recently spoke on Dawson taking on the lead role in Star Wars: Ahsoka and praised the actress for her part in the series.
"Rosario Dawson is such an incredibly powerful actress, and she loves this character," Kennedy in a press briefing for the series. "Everything about who Ahsoka is, what she represents, that interesting tension that exists between good and evil, dark and light, her previous relationship with Darth Vader (Anakin Skywalker)—all of that she has just brought to life in a way that almost no one else could."
"Fallen Jedi" ends with Ahsoka meeting Anakin in the World Between Worlds, which has already caused a lot of reactions and theories from fans. Many Star Wars fans have taken to Twitter to express their excitement about Christensen's return and their joy over hearing him call Ahsoka "Snips," the nickname his character often used in Clone Wars (in the animated series, Anakin was voiced by Matt Lanter while Ahsoka was voiced by Ashley Eckstein).
You can check out some of the reactions to Ahsoka's fourth episode below...
The Jedi only look even more bland and inhuman in comparison, a decline that the live-action rendition of Ahsoka Tano fails to arrest. Heck, even the lightsabers don’t swish anymore—like their wielders, they have been made bleak and bland, turned into sticks that only vaguely glow. Ahsoka was always unlikely to capture the lightning-in-a-bottle magic of Andor, but in relying solely on placing fan-favorite Jedi on the screen and hoping that fans will fill in the gaps between the occasional hum of a lightsaber, the show feels like a step back. It’s just not enough, not anymore. If the reception to Andor was any indication, audiences have moved on from the tired wish-fulfillment that diehard fans still seem to crave. Both shows, albeit in different ways, prove it’s time for Star Wars to move on from the Jedi
The quality of some TV today is far better than most movies from forty or fifty years ago. Is that what you meant?I feel like I’ve just watched a movie.
It was certainly the best of the four episodes so far, but regarding the story being as good as a film, well then it wouldn't be as good without all the previous set-up, and it just ended suddenly, with Ahsoka seeing Anakin's Force ghost and the X-wing squadron's crash and burn. So, as a movie it would suck. No beginning, middle and end. Instead, it is a serial.all the pieces and tube videos say the same thing. Absolutely marvellous episode, but we are not there yet, because mind-blowing stuff is coming ahead.
I rewatched it last night, because I was certain that Baylon forgot the Source computer on ground and it was shown calculating each segment. So, I don't think it's really a straight line, but a series of jumps, because the original and much used hyperspace lanes,The hyperdrive Ring is in one direction, I assume, but maybe it works in both. Any very small error in calculations and you get lost in "the void."
I have also lived "decades [without] following the canon of Star Wars" too but I have fully understood the extremely long hyperspace jump to another Galaxy (even further, further away) which they learnt of from following Space Whales They have stolen it from Stargate anyway - this is like the extra symbol on the Gate! And the Space Whales are an SF Trope. They were in Larry Niven's Integral Trees. Heck, they even had one in Star Trek TNG!I am frustrated because it is obviously written for those who have lived decades following the "canon" of Star Wars
On that particular point, we may have jumped the gun in this thread because all we actually saw was Ahsoka meeting Anakin's Force Ghost at the very end of the episode. Force Ghosts were well established in the original nine movies. I'm confident that anything more than that will be fully explained in the next episode. While I have little doubt that what has been posted here will be correct, as far as what we saw goes, it was still speculation. Ahsoka may be having an unconscious dream, it might be a flashback, or something else?I knew nothing of this "World-between-Worlds" where time travel is possible.
The only observation that I would make regarding the use of lightsabres, is that rather than stabbings through the chest cavity, the way in which the blades are constantly swung around would lead to more severed limbs. Yet, I don't see amputated legs and arms as injuries.I quite liked the fights on the whole, aside from minor nitpicks when it comes to the way lightsabers are used. They're not regular swords but the fights are choreographed as if they had the exact same properties as steel, and that's a shame.
