Disney Plus’ Ahsoka left people with many questions who wanted Ahsoka ending explained. The show’s eight-episode run ended on a critical note, with many unresolved plotlines. Here are the loose ends of the Ahsoka ending explained.
Ahsoka Ending Explained: How Did It End?
To summarize the ending, the return of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who poses a more significant threat to the Star Wars galaxy, concludes the first season finale of Ahsoka. Ahsoka, Sabine, and Huyang appeared stranded on Peridea following their victory against Morgan Elsbeth. Moreover, the resurrected zombie Night Troopers return to life through the Great Mother’s magic. Furthermore, Sabine employs her newly enhanced Force abilities to get Ezra aboard Thrawn’s Star Destroyer.
Once within the ship, Ezra discreetly escaped to his native galaxy and reunited with Hera Syndulla. Given Ezra’s understanding of the situation, one can assume that Ezra and Hera Syndulla are now embarking on a mission. Their objective is to not only thwart Thrawn, who was last seen en route to the Nightsisters’ ancestral planet, Dathomir, but also devise a plan to rescue their friends.
On Peridea, Ahsoka, Sabine, and Huyang joined forces with the native Noti population, establishing a new hideout. There weren’t immediate plans to find a way off the planet. However, the episode’s final scene unveiled a glimmer of hope. We see the Force ghost of none other than Ahsoka’s former mentor, Anakin Skywalker, watching over them.
As for Baylan Skoll (portrayed by the late Ray Stevenson) and his apprentice Shin Hati (played by Ivanna Sakhno), who were also left on Peridea, gave rise to many questions concerning the fate of these mercenaries. While the movie showed Shin aligning herself with a gang of bandits, the greater power Baylan sensed and sought on the planet remains in mystery.
Baylan’s final scene suggests a connection to the Mortis Gods, ancient beings known as the Ones, who embody different aspects of the force. Baylan stood upon the outstretched hand of a massive statue of the Father. It symbolized the balance in the force. Meanwhile, the other two statues, the Son and the Daughter, represent the dark and light sides of the force, respectively.
Expectations Regarding Future Ahsoka Season 2
Lucasfilm has yet to reveal any information regarding the potential renewal of Ahsoka for a second season. However, it’s worth noting that Dave Filoni, who has been at the helm of the animated Star Wars series The Clone Wars and Rebels, is currently in the process of developing a new Star Wars movie. This cinematic project is expected to center around characters from both Ahsoka and The Mandalorian.
Filoni shared his perspective in conversation with Empire that a theatrical experience should encompass a grand concept. It could be a pivotal moment within the timeline that brings about substantial changes. He stressed the importance of capturing those moments that define an era in the realm of filmmaking, whether it involves characters coming together or marking a defining juncture in the story.
When questioned whether this film would serve as the culmination of the intertwining narratives between these two shows, particularly the ongoing storyline concerning the battle against Thrawn, Filoni refrained from confirming any specific details. Instead, he emphasized that the movie would revolve around a significant turning point within the galaxy.
Does Ahsoka Have a Post-Credits Scene?
Regrettably, this expectation is dashed as there is no mid-credits or post-credits scene found in the Ahsoka finale. In light of the numerous unresolved mysteries and lingering plot threads that persist even after the final moments of the Ahsoka finale, one might reasonably anticipate the inclusion of a post-credits sequence to provide some closure or offer tantalizing hints about what lies ahead.
Until this point, Lucasfilm had established a tradition of concluding each live-action Star Wars series season with a brief but impactful teaser during or after the credits. In addition, The Mandalorian’s inaugural season ended with the shocking reveal of Moff Gideon wielding the formidable Darksaber. Meanwhile, its second season left fans buzzing with excitement by setting the stage for The Book of Boba Fett in a post-credits scene. Notably, this spinoff itself featured a mid-credits moment. It depicted Timothy Olyphant’s character, Cobb Vanth, convalescing in a bacta tank.
Lastly, it appears that this pattern of tantalizing post-credits scenes has ended. Both The Mandalorian’s third season and the Star Wars series Andor opted not to include any post-credits sequences. As the future of the Star Wars franchise on Disney+ remains shrouded in mystery, fans are eagerly awaiting official announcements to shed light on what lies ahead in this ever-expanding galaxy far away.
