Taking Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars: Rebels and Heir to the Empire as its core inspiration, the latest Disney+ show, Ahsoka, feels like a welcome return to the foundations of George Lucas' universe. Ahsoka shines from the outset due to the performances of Rosario Dawson, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, the late great Ray Stevenson, Ivanna Sakhno, Lars Mikkelsen and David Tennant and delights with the return appearance of Hayden Christensen's Anakin. Like The Mandalorian, Ahsoka bathes in the diversity, adventure and wonder of a galaxy far, far away, reminding us just how special George Lucas' characters and worlds are. Disney's Star Wars outings have been a mixed bag of brilliance, disappointment, creativity and fan service over the years; thankfully, Ahsoka is a joy, leaving you desperate for more as each beautifully crafted episode concludes, and much of this success comes from its embrace of Heir to the Empire and the legacy of the Clone Wars and Anakin's fall. Like The Mandalorian, Andor and Obi-Wan, Ahsoka provides further hope in Disney's ability to embrace Lucas' vision and sweep us away with intergalactic intrigue, adventure and excitement. May the force be with you.
