Disney should do a comic series or a novel on Ahsoka
So I've been thinking, wouldn't it be cool to see what Ahsoka got up to after leaving the Order? How she sorted that stuff out she had to sort out on her own? How she escaped Order 66, became Fulcrum? There is like almost 20 years of her life we know nothing about.
I think it could be pretty awesome, would you read? What would you like to see?
Shit, her story alone could probably make for a damn good TV series.
"A great tactician creates plans.
A good tactician recognizes the soundness of a plan presented to him.
A fair tactician must see the plan succeed before offering approval.
Those with no tactical ability at all may never understand or accept the plan.
Nor will such people understand or accept the tactician.
And when a mind is too deficient in understanding, the resulting gap is often filled with resentment."
I'm tired of Ahsoka, surprise, and look forward to finding out that other Force users matter. She doesn't need a novel or a comic, and she definitely doesn't need an entire show; she needs to stop being forced into relevancy.
She's immensely popular, believe it or not. Expanding her character and exploring her life between TCW and Rebels isn't forcing her relevancy - it's giving those who are interested in Ahsoka (many are) what they want to see. And it isn't like delving into TCW-Rebels era Ahsoka means that other potential stories of Force-users are being neglected.
Her being popular has nothing to do with what I said. As to the rest, that's exactly what it is. Exploring her life between TCW and Rebels is something that could easily be done in Rebels, as opposed to dumping her into yet another story. Out of ten thousand Jedi Knights, I want to see more than 5.
The same way 15 years of say Rey's life was put into a short story. She obviously wasn't fighting the Empire, so I doubt she was living the life of adventure extraordinaire everyday. We don't need to know about every little detail of everyone's life. Ahsoka going through a Dagobah montage for a decade and a half might seem cool to you, but it isn't for me.
Ahsoka was an undercover rebel informant providing information and aid to insurgencies across the Galaxy. After she left the Order she participated in the 'Siege of Mandalore' as well. Rey was on Jakku for basically her whole life scavenging. It's not comparable. There is so much potential for Ahsoka's character between TCW and Rebels it's insane - how she became Fulcrum, what experiences she could have had with various different rebel factions, what she experienced during Order 66 and the Jedi Purge, etc. You aren't remotely interested in Ahsoka regardless though, anyways, so I doubt anything done with her would really spark your desire to see more to be honest.
I'm not sure why that can't all be raped up in a story or two, but obviously, the only investment I have on her character is hating on her here. TCW felt like Ahsoka's story, and she's clearly the only one worth mentioning in Rebels now. Buy it's not just her I'm tired of, it's the PT/OT cast in general. Maul's in for his second reappearance now, for similar reasons to you wanting more Ahsoka.
