    First Rey, then Leia. Next up.... more Leia? Or will it be time for a different badass lady to shine?

    I am guessing this is where we see that braid come into play?

    So the formula seems to be
    heroine + cute sidekick (droid / ewok) do something

    They had a sort of "forces of destiny" thing going on with Rey. The Leia one seemed to break the theme.

    I think it's still about small moments that defines who they are as a character.

    These episodes keep getting better and better!

    Lovely to see Ahsoka, Anakin and Yoda again. Not to mention Coruscant!

    This was my favorite so far - but I've said that for every new episode. I hope it continues to improve even more! :D

    I liked this little Ahsoka short. Does anyone have a general idea of when in the TCW timeline this takes place?

    Well, Ahsoka has two lightsabers in it, which she doesn't have until the second half of the third season of TCW if I recall correctly. So maybe around half-way through her time as a padawan?

    The artwork is fantastic. Loved the look of the Jedi Temple and the tree.

    Nice to see Coruscant again and another cute little story about bravery and compassion.

    Now that I think about, the artwork reminds me of the Assassin's Creed Chronicles series. Water colour-esque art style was fantastic in that game series, but I wonder if this is where LucasFilms got the idea from?

    Ahsoka's character design looks great, I'm not so fond of Anakin's though. Yoda looks ok I guess.

    We know it takes place after the mid point of season 3 as Ahsoka didn't have that design until then. I'm guessing sometime around season 4.

    Each episode is better than the last one.

    Yeah it's pretty obvious that much more time has been put into the main character of each toy advert episode. The rest is very basic and cheaply made.

    Personally I'm going to put this short between season 3 and 4. Maybe the ceremony is a sort of award after Ahsoka's heroics during Wookie Hunt ;)

    I liked this one a lot. Good throwback to TCW.

    Looks like they were going for Hayden's ROTS look for Anakin, as opposed to the boxier look from the show.

    I had not given much thought to the timeline and it's a bit confusing because Ahsoka did not have that design until season 4 but she had her Padawan braid in season 2, since Cad Bane snapped it off?

    The confusion did not detract from my enjoyment though.

    Nice Wizard of Oz "I'm melting, I'm melting" moment with Ahsoka cutting the pipes and letting the water drown the magnaguard.

    Like I've said, I love seeing this little story gap fillers (as a writer, I am big on continuity), and showing the interesting stuff that happens 'off-camera' of the movies and/or other series. I wasn't crazy about Anakin's design though.

    I need to remember not to read comments on YouTube though. Seems like all they do is hem and haw about 'everything wrong', which is a good quick way to put me in a bad mood.

    If Disney ever asked hardcore SW fans who else they'd like to see on this though, I'd say Stacy (Pink Five). If she was good enough to be included in the Legends timeline books, she's good enough for the new timeline. I always include the Pink Five series when I binge watch Star Wars. (Although Pink Five Strikes Back had a couple story continuity issues)

    I think she got an extension for her braid, not the braid itself in this episode. Like a "you are now ready for Phase 2 of you Padawan-ness" or something. I might be wrong though.
