    You need to upload it to the internet first. Somewhere like imgur which is free and doesn't even require registration.

    Well, obviously I cant figure it out, and I cant delete a pointless post either.

    Step 1: click the 'Image' option to the right of the smiley face.
    Step 2: Insert the hyperlink of the image. Nothing else, just the hyperlink.
    You should then see it in your post already or you can do a preview to see if it's going to show.

    I fixed your image @BadAcrobat. Seems like you just had some extraneous code in there.

    Also keep information like that behind tags until the episode airs.

    I screenshotted the wookieepedia page of Ahsoka Tano for posterity. I figure this is the last 24 hours the pic on the right will depict an animated version of her. With characters who have transitioned from animation to live action previously (such as Saw Gerrera and more recently Bo-Katan) once they show up in live action, a screenshot of them from the live action appearance immediately becomes the default placeholder pic on their wook page.

    Awesome Sir thank you. And noted and apologies about not tagging it Spoiler.

    Great image though eh? Wonder if its official - popped up on my FB this morning.

    It looks like it could be official or not. A reverse image search isn't throwing up any hits though, so I lean towards non-official.

    Yes it would be a shame if they do that for Ahsoka's main picture. For me Ahsoka is the animated character. I know Ahsoka in live action will look like a cosplayer to me.

    I say we give it the benefit of the doubt. Yes we've seen some janky cosplay pics of her but this is an actual show with a costume department. A darn good one at that. And we have Rosario Dawson who is all the beauty of Ahsoka. The head gear is the wild card, it would be difficult to fight with that on. We shall see how it's done. Stay optimistic. I look forward to an awesome episode that delves deeper into what has been going on with the Force since ROTJ. If the rumored Thrawn is true, I would love that, just leave out Ezra I think. Sabine is a must as I look forward to seeing her in live action.

    I think it would be a missed opportunity to not include both Sabine and Fenn Rau. For Sabine they'd need to cast and keep it under wraps, but Rau is Kevin McKidd so if news ever comes down he's going to make an appearance, we'll know. And to miss out on Kevin McKidd playing a live action Mandalorian would be tragic.

    That, and her voice isn't far from what Ashley Eckstein did for Rebels.

    If they did the first part, they've done a really good job with the second part. :)

    Wookieepedia always uses the character’s most recent appearance as the profile pic. See: Luke, Leia, Han, Palpatine, Lando, etc. So yes Ahsoka’s profile pic will be from The Mandalorian.

    But live action appearance seems to take presidence over animation even if the animated one is a larger part and more recent (See Aayla Secura). This is fine when the character is firstly a live action character or gains greater recognition as a live action character (Saw Gerrera), or voiced by the same person (Bo-Katan). But Ahsoka is so well recognised as the animated character (Her TCW appearance primarily) voiced by Ashley Eckstein that it will take a long time for the live action version with a different voice to be how most people recognise Ahsoka. And a small cameo won't do it.

    A random example: Picture Fred Flintstone in your mind. Now are you thinking of the cartoon character? Or are you picturing in your mind John Goodman? I'm pretty certain it was the former.

    When I said most recent appearance I meant timeline-wise. ROTS is as far as Aayla Secura goes in the timeline as she’s killed in the film so it makes sense that her live action appearance is the one that appears as the profile pic.

    Actually, for the most part the wook will prioritize live action images over animated or illustrated ones. Look at any movie character killed off in an animated show or comic (Even Piell, Tarpals, Dodonna)- it'll still have a live action image for the main pic.

    Ah okay. How about Kyle Katarn then (Has the live action actor picture even though there are 3D models and official artworks of him later in the timeline), or are you talking about Disney only? Again I think that example is fair though as I picture Jason Court's Kyle when I think of that character. Sorry for going a bit off topic btw.

    Is she going to use her saber(s) in the episode?

    I'm not sure. I mean.....I don't think she ends up as Luke 2.0....but I think all this is going to feel shorter than some might expect.

    I would be very ok if she never drew her sword on an enemy; given her evolution as a character, I kind of expect her to go the way of Yoda and Luke and see no need to use weapons in that regard anymore. She is, after all, another rendition of a "pure" Jedi that has, at this point, moved on and "unlearned" the doctrines of the Jedi Order of old that had held the Jedi back for so long.

    That being said, I am going to assume that she does still have the white sabers on her, and she will likely be coerced into drawing her swords again once Gideon draws the Darksaber (assuming, of course, that he does indeed follow the tracking beacon in the Razor Crest to Corvus in tomorrow's episode).

    I just hope that we do get to see her at least holding her Gandalf staff when we meet her.

    Little tribute to her and her story, before we see her in live action. Tihs little video just makes me inner fanboy shiver of her returning to the silver screen. I wonder if days or weeks after this episode they might announce more projects with Ahsoka Tano.

    Fixed quote. The animated Ahsoka will always be the first Ahsoka, and just like Alec Guinness' Obi-wan, will always exist.
