This is a monumental Episode of #TheMandalorian— Kiran Nolan (@KiranNolan) November 27, 2020
Seeing #AhsokaTano in live action just gave me chills. Thank you Dave Filoni, Rosario Dawson is amazing as Ahsoka and she nailed it. We got a name for Baby Yoda(Grogu), Thrawn is still alive which means Ezra is out there somewhere pic.twitter.com/7bwFM3XZU4

Never Forget Queen Ashley
Before she is brought into live action I would like to thank Ashley Eckstein for bringing Ahsoka Tano to life in animation for us. One of the best characters in all of Star Wars. pic.twitter.com/FGM6dZSFmu— 🎒 / mando spoilers (@kingbackpackii) November 27, 2020

Best. Star Wars. Ever.
Chapter 13 is some of the best Star Wars content ever created. Finally getting to see Ahsoka Tano (my favourite character) in live-action was everything I wanted and more. Rosario Dawson was just perfect, Ludwig nailed the score and this is Star Wars at its best. #TheMandalorian pic.twitter.com/Vl3G1eFXgv— brendelf 🧝🏽 (@brendanomallley) November 27, 2020

The Future Looks Great
Damn Filoni really took his position and got Ahsoka Tano, Boba Fett, and Thrawn all back for the live action series, setting up Disney+'s future to be the greatest star wars live action in a while #AhsokaTano #TheMandalorian pic.twitter.com/dl5p9FkapE— Tyler Erwin (@DA_SHADOWMAN) November 27, 2020
Dave Filoni has taken major characters he built up in the animated universe (Ahsoka, Boba Fett, Bo-Katan) and positioned them for some exciting potential live-action spinoffs. It's pretty much alchemy, and the future of Stars Wars TV is looking real good for fans.prev
