Before You Meet Ahsoka: Binge-Watch These 11 Essential Episodes

Strap in, space cowboys and girls! We're embarking on a Star Wars crash course you don't want to miss. We're diving headlong into lightsaber-filled adventures featuring none other than Ahsoka Tano, our favourite Togruta Jedi whom we're all impatient to meet in live-action.

Long story short: If you've always wondered, "Which Clone Wars and Rebels episodes should I focus on to understand Ahsoka?" you've hit the jackpot for an answer. A spacecraft-load of joy awaits in catching up on the animated Ahsoka adventures before the live-action show hits your Disney Plus streaming service (let's be honest, we're all about to binge-watch it!).

The litany of key Rebels characters brought to life for this show is pretty impressive – Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren, Grand Admiral Thrawn, Hera Syndulla, and young Jacen Syndulla. With this ensemble joining the fray, a quick rewind of your Rebels knowledge is a must. We've charted out essential Clone Wars episodes that provide a deeper understanding of Ahsoka’s past and how it intertwined with Anakin Skywalker. Are you ready for some serious Jedi knowledge?

Let's start with an emotional rollercoaster in "The Wrong Jedi," (The Clone Wars season 5, episode 20) where viewers witness Ahsoka's heartbreaking trial, orchestrated by no less than Admiral Tarkin who accuses her of bombing the Jedi Temple. Didn't see that coming, did you? This episode is a terrific peek into Ahsoka’s tumultuous past, which forever shapes her future.

Now, fast forward to "The Siege of Mandalore" arc (The Clone Wars season 7, episodes 9-12) where Ahsoka, after an absence spanning nearly two seasons, makes a gallant return to battle Darth Maul - a name that needs no introduction. Throw an epic lightsaber battle into this pot of high-intensity drama, and that's a recipe for an unforgettable Star Wars saga!

But we're not done yet! Got some space popcorn handy? Great, because it's time to move over to "Fire Across the Galaxy" (Rebels season 1, episode 15). It's in this electrifying season finale that Ahsoka makes her grand entry and gives us a pretty enlightening idea of just what she has been up to after the dramatic fall of the Jedi and the rise of the Empire.

Hold on to your seats, we're making the jump to light speed and zipping over to the climactic, heart-wrenching double bill, "Twilight of the Apprentice" (Rebels season 2, episodes 21-22). Trust us, you wouldn’t want to miss Ahsoka exchanging blows with Darth Vader himself.

In Rebels season 4, it's a thrill ride of emotions leading to the revelation of Ahsoka's post-battle fate in "A World Between Worlds" (episode 13), the climax in "Family Reunion – and Farewell" (episode 15), and her subsequent search for Thrawn, which sets the stage for the much-anticipated spin-off.

Have you got some extra time to kill and still crave more of the Force? The Clone Wars movie and Tales of the Jedi episodes 1, 5, and 6 add extra layers to Ahsoka’s backstory. Or if you’d prefer deep diving into the Star Wars universe, the galaxy has much more to offer with an array of upcoming Star Wars movies and TV shows. Sharpen your Jedi knowledge and get ready for a movie marathon with these best Star Wars movies. May the popcorn be with you!
