The Ahsoka finale will arrive on Disney+ just a few short days from now and, unsurprisingly, Star Wars fans are eager to discover how this story ends.
It's hard to escape the feeling a cliffhanger ending is imminent, especially as Dave Filoni has plans for a movie (and, if we had to bet on it, a second season). Thus far, there's been an understandable amount of secrecy surrounding Ahsoka's final episode and little to no footage from it has been shared in advance.
That's evident from a video shared by a fan which confirms the only moment from the trailers and TV spots not seen in the series up until now is the one where Thrawn steps aboard the Eye of Sion's bridge.
Could this be a sign the Grand Admiral is going to achieve ultimate victory by escaping Peridea? We'll have to wait and see, but there's also some very ominous dialogue.
However, a resurfaced interview (via SFFGazette.com) from this year's Star Wars Celebration with Morgan Elsbeth actress Diana Lee Inosanto seemingly spoils at least one big sequence in Tuesday's finale.
"What felt different [compared to The Mandalorian]? That’s a great question. I will tell you one thing: the fight scene for sure. Because we had about 17 hours to kick out that fight scene between Rosario [Dawson] and I [in 'The Mandalorian'], whereas this time around...we had days at it. Let’s just say that."
"There were days added to that fight scene. So it’s a long, involved fight scene. It’s pretty intense. And then there’s other moments too. There’s so much action involved in this and I don’t want to say too much, but there are some incredible moments. Definitely, between all of us."
So, there you go, we can look forward to a rematch between Ahsoka Tano and Elsbeth and, if we had to hazard a guess, the Nightsister may well be the finale's biggest casualty! Well, unless the tragic theories about Ezra Bridger never escaping his exile are correct...
