The Disney+ action-adventure series “Star Wars: Ahsoka,” or simply “Ahsoka,” was created by Dave Filoni and is set in a galaxy far, far away. The story centres on the title character as she looks into a threat that the galaxy is facing again after the collapse of the Empire. Ahsoka is also being pressured to face her history and reconsider the relationships she has formed while battling the Imperial army. As a result, the convoluted nature of Ahsoka’s connection to the Jedi Order is likely to confound viewers. Here is all the information you require if you’re curious as to why Ahsoka isn’t a Jedi in “Star Wars: Ahsoka”! Spoilers follow!
Who Is Ahsoka Tano?
Between “Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones” and “Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith,” the animated film “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” from 2008 has Ahsoka Tano’s first appearance. In the animated series ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars,’ which closely parallels the events of the same-named movie, Ahsoka plays a major role. Ahsoka is a young Jedi Padawan in the series who is tasked with learning under Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker. She was raised on Coruscant but is of the Shili-based Togruta alien race.
Ahsoka is a talented force user who initially disobeys the regulations of the Jedi Order. A few months prior to the start of the Clone Wars, Ahsoka is given the responsibility of training under Anakin. On several missions, though, Anakin and Ahsoka frequently butted heads before growing to respect one another and form a close friendship. Ashley Eckstein voices Ahsoka in her animated appearances, and actress Rosario Dawson plays the role in live-action beginning with the second season of “The Mandalorian.”
Why is Ahsoka Not a Jedi?
The journey of Ahsoka Tano is a significant yet underappreciated element of the “Star Wars” mythology. Ahsoka was taught how to utilise the Force by her master, Anakin, a Jedi Padawan who later joined the evil side and became the infamous Darth Vader. Fans of the franchise are familiar with Anakin’s trek between the Force’s light side—represented by the Jedi—and the dark side—represented by the Sith, but Ahsoka’s route is a little trickier. Ahsoka, who had the potential to develop into a fully fledged Jedi Knight, voluntarily left the Jedi Order towards the end of the Clone Wars.
Ahsoka is charged with bombing the Jedi temple on Coruscant by the Jedi Order in season 5 of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” Despite Ahsoka’s protests to the contrary, the Jedi Order wants to punish her until Anakin can establish that Padawan Barriss Offee was the perpetrator of the bombing. As a result, Ahsoka receives a chance to re-join the Jedi and is cleared of all charges. She declines, though, because the Jedi Order doesn’t believe in her, and she chooses her own course. In the animated series “Star Wars Rebels,” Ahsoka would later adopt the codename “Fulcrum” and play a key role in the Rebellion.
Ahsoka still uses her Jedi skills and rigorously sticks to the light side of the Force despite no longer being in the Jedi Order. The remaining Imperial forces view her as a Jedi as a result. Ahsoka is also one of the few Force users who is unaffected by politics, money, or power, and she personifies the principles of being a Jedi. Ahsoka is committed to upholding the law, as shown by her support for the Rebellion, which represents the true aim of the Jedi. As a result, even though Ahsoka rejects the title of Jedi, she upholds the principles and values of the Jedi Order. ‘Star Wars: Ahsoka’ keeps examining Ahsoka’s complex relationship with the Jedi traditions, particularly through her friendship with Sabine Wren, whom she raises as a Padawan in a manner similar to how Anakin raised her.
