Star Wars Ahsoka Trailer Breakdown: First Look at Thrawn, Hera, Sabine, Huyang and More

Before meeting her on The Mandalorian, Morgan worked for the Imperial Navy, sucking resources from countless planets to help build the ships the Emperor used to subjugate the galaxy. Rumors circulating the internet suggest that Morgan and the extent of his power are much more than what we’ve seen on screen thus far. We won’t spoil anything here, but there are some very juicy leaks out there…

Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma

Yes, it’s Genevieve O’Reilly from the Prequels, A thugAnd Andor reprising his role as Mon Mothma. Why is she back for Ahsoka? Well, the show is set during the New Republic era of star wars, which means that the politician Chandrilan is now the head of this galactic government. After the fall of the Empire, the main leader of the rebellion was elected as the New Republic’s first chancellor and tasked with ushering in a new era of coin for the galaxy. We see Ahsoka reaching out to Mothma and other New Republic officials in the trailer, presumably to warn them of Thrawn’s impending threat or ask for their help in fighting the Imperial Remnant.

Ray Stevenson as Baylan and Ivanna Sakhno as Shin

Thrawn and Morgan Elsbeth aren’t the only villains to pass for Ahsoka. There are also two villains wielding a red lightsaber played by Ray Stevenson and Ivanna Sakhno. We know that Stevenson’s heavily armored Force user is called Baylan, while Sakhno’s character is said to be called Shin. The scuttlebutt is that Baylan and Shin are masters and apprentices of the dark side of the Force.

Although we once thought the Sith were wiped out after the deaths of Palpatine and Darth Vader, we know from the Sequel Trilogy that the Sith Eternal still exists on Exegol. Are Baylan and Shin part of this secret order? Or are they what’s left of the Inquisitors? Since this show seems to borrow a bit from Legends, maybe Baylan and Shin are meant to be the canon version of Dark Jedi, villains who aren’t Sith but don’t follow the light side of the Force either. . In the ancient timeline, many Dark Jedi served the Imperial Remnant, including in heir to the empire

Dark Jedi and the Mara Jade Theory

Speaking of Dark Jedi, there’s another dark side in the trailer, one that challenges Ahsoka with an Inquisitor’s rotating double-bladed lightsaber. So is it a member of the Inquisitorius or someone else?

Surprisingly, it only took one heir to the empire reference from Ahsoka’s mouth to get fans to theorize that star wars is about to bring Mara Jade back to the cannon. Legends of course remember Mara Jade as one of the best characters ever created outside of movies, a fierce warrior who once served the Emperor but later joined the Jedi Order and even married Luke Skywalker! People couldn’t get enough of Mara from the moment she was introduced in Zahn’s novel.
