Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is awash with fan service and references to Star Wars canon. That includes callbacks to fan-favourite characters like Qui-Gon Jinn and Ahsoka Tano. Ahsoka firstly entered the Star Wars canon as Anakin Skywalker’s padawan in the Clone Wars animated series. She later battled Darth Vader in Star Wars Rebels.

Star Wars: Is Ahsoka Tano Dead in The Rise of Skywalker?

It’s no secret that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker left us with a lot of unanswered questions. One involves the character of Ahsoka Tano, the apprentice of Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Towards the end of Episode IX, as Rey is about to beat Emperor Palpatine, she hears the voices of several Jedi sending her strength.

Among those voices are Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Mace Windu, Yoda, and Qui-Gon Jinn, who are all dead. She also hears the voice of Ahsoka Tano, which leads fans to believe two things: That she has become a Jedi, and that she is also dead.

The Clone Wars season 7 brings Ahsoka Tano’s Prequel era story to an end, this is only the end of the first part of her story. Although she’s not physically in any of the movies, Ahsoka’s presence is felt all the way to The Rise of Skywalker when she speaks to Rey through the Force during the film’s climactic battle with Palpatine.

Star Wars- Is Ahsoka Tano Dead in The Rise of Skywalker

Even though it’s just as likely that her inclusion in this scene is simply a wink at the Star Wars fans who love the character, Ahsoka’s single line has led fans to wonder whether this means she died prior to the events of the Sequel Trilogy.

Although there is some “evidence” that this might be the case, primarily that the other Jedi who speak to Rey in The Rise of Skywalker — Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Kanan Jarrus, Aayla Secura, Mace Windu, Yoda, Qui-Gon Jinn, Luminara Unduli, and Adi Gallia — are all dead.


But the difference is that we’ve seen the deaths of all of these other characters, whether it be in the films, the TV series, or in the pages of the books and comics. (While we don’t see how Master Unduli died, her death was confirmed in Rebels.) But if you track Ahsoka’s adventures after The Clone Wars, you’ll see that she survives not just the Jedi Purge but the Empire itself.

And, when Ahsoka finally reveals herself to Ezra Bridger, Kanan Jarrus, Hera Syndulla, and the rest of the Spectres, it’s a big moment of hope for the galaxy. Here’s this former Jedi hero ready to help. And, yes Ahsoka does leave her lightsaber behind at the end of The Clone Wars, but by the time she returns on Rebels, she’s constructed two new, white-bladed lightsabers as well as a new reason to fight. And not just going to war for the Republic during the Clone Wars, helping the Rebellion is truly the right cause.

Also, the last time we see Ahsoka in the season 2 finale, it’s in a duel against Darth Vader. She also stays behind on Malachor, keeping Vader so that Kanan and Ezra can escape. And, while the two rebel heroes zoomed off for another season of adventures, Ahsoka’s fate was left up in the air for all of season 3 and a good bit of season 4 until she was brought back in “A World Between Worlds,” one of the most significant stories in Star Wars history? Why? As it introduces the concept of time travel to the galaxy far, far away.

As we recall, the last time we see Ahsoka on screen, it’s on Ezra’s home planet of Lothal. And, she meets former Spectre Sabine Wren there and the two plan to head out on a mission to find Ezra, who disappeared into hyperspace with Grand Admiral Thrawn in the Rebels series finale.

Ahsoka might be in her early 40s when we next see her on-screen. So As far as what her role in The Mandalorian may entail, your guess is as good as ours. And, will the show represent the end of the line for Ahsoka? If not, will the end of her story come in the rumoured spinoff series that will allegedly follow Ahsoka’s appearance on the live-action series?
