    But dont you know that death hasn't stopped people from wanting to ressurect them just to put them in the sequel trilogy *example: Palpatine, plagueis, darth maul, Anakin, ect* ;)

    I liked SithLordDarthRichie's post especially for that last statement, but...yeah.

    Nobody really dies in Star Wars.

    Yep. Unlike Ben and Anakin, she's totally the only one that knows that.

    There is difference between bringing back a character who was in a previous movie and someone who in a TV show many casual SW viewers have probably not seen. Star Wars is not just for fans of the originals, it has been good at attracting new viewers. If people who have seen previous movies are going "who is that person and why are they talking about her like she was in it long ago?" Then it's not really going to work.
    At least guys like Darth Maul and Boba Fett were in the movies and most people know who they are.

    I wouldn't mind too much if Ahsoka showed up during the ST so long as we're told where she's been during the OT period. I mean wouldn't she have sought out Luke after learning that he's a Jedi and has the last name Skywalker(especially since she was Anakin's apprentice)? If TCW can bring back Maul after being sliced in half and dumped down a hole I won't entirely rule out anything being possible when it comes to the ST.

    Shaak Ti was already on the council IIRC by the time of AoTC. So she was probably over 30 by that point. Several years over 30.

    By the time she faced Starkiller on Felucia she would have been well into her 50s, but didn't look any visibly more aged than her appearance during the PT era.

    So maybe they do age slower / live longer than humans.

    But, that said... I think Ahsoka needs to be kept away from the ST. It would take an absolute masterful genius of storywriting/filmmaking to have her in the ST and somehow not have it come off as horribly forced and cheesy. IOW, with the crew we've got behind this, it would be horribly forced and cheesy.

    The closest you could come to anything-to-do-with-Ahsoka without being cringeworthy would be something like Luke going through Vader's personal vaults and finding her padawan braid still stashed in there somewhere. Or a scene of R2D2 replaying some of his stored memories as a hologram by way of educating Luke about his father's past, and Ahsoka showing up briefly in that. Something along those lines.

    Indeed, the best way to effectively end her role in Anakin's life is to have her killed by Darth Vader. Skywalker truly is gone if he has no issue with killing those he once cared so much for, not that it's him doing it but that's another debate entirely.

    You're assuming Leia follows the Jedi path :)

    If you ask most adults who Admiral Akbar is they'll also say "Who?" But ask kids & they know who Ahsoka is!

    I certainly hope they make Leia a Jedi Master not only because I think ROTJ indicates that but because I think Carrie Fisher would be amazing in the role. :) I liked Ahsoka for the most part and I'm all for having things in the films for kids to enjoy but what I don't think is a good idea is incorporating a character for name recognition alone when that character really has no purpose in the story. I just don't see any way Ahsoka could be important to the storyline.

    Agreed. I mean the fact that we are searching for reasons why she could be in it kinda shows that she isn't a natural fit for the sequel trilogy. She doesn't seem like a person who would make total sense to see. Characters like the OT3, Lando, Chewie, heck even Wedge and Palpatine make sense to return *not saying I want Palpatine to return but just saying*. Prequel characters who were never seen live action on screen and are only known by people who saw a cartoon...not soo much.

    She connects the PT era to the OT era to the ST era. So she's a great choice! I hope she's all over the movie!

    Funny the same thing was said about Plagueis. "He connects the prequels to the originals and sequels". Now a days that excuse can be used for ANY prequel character *though it fits Obi wan and Anakin the most*

    Since Ahsoka isn't even in any of the prequel films I don't see how she could connect all three trilogies together. She might have been alive but her story takes place completely off screen.

    TRUTH! How does a character never seen on screen and who most audiences *maybe other than kids who watched the cartoon* are unaware of connect the entire series? The droids connect the series more than Ahsoka does.

    I honestly wouldn't. I think it would be fun to have another JJB cameo.

    I hope Jar Jar is the pilot of the Falcon in the ST for the exact same "reason".

    Why not just add Starkiller's clone into the ST as well then, approximately the same amount of people know who he is and who this stupid Ashoka character is.

    Honestly, do the people arguing for this not even realize how random and unknown she is to the vast majority of people that have never even heard of the Clone Wars series itself, much less some character in it?

    Good grief, I hope they steamroll every EU piece ever written based on this conversation :p

    She should appear in a spinoff series of the ST. Also, she should have her own spinoff movie. Perhaps show her to be quite powerful and not the weakling that got saved by little kids in Season 5.
