TCW: New Interviews About Ahsoka's Legacy

Posted By Eric on March 14, 2013

With The Clone Wars having aired its last episode on Cartoon Network, various news outlets have started looking back at the series, particularly its breakout character of Ahsoka Tano. Here are a few of the Ahsoka-related interviews that have been posted in the past few days.

First up, series supervising director Dave Filoni shared his thoughts about the impact and fate of Ahsoka with Entertainment Weekly. Here's what Filoni said about Ahsoka walking away from the Jedi Order at the end of "The Wrong Jedi":

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: There must be a jumble of emotions these days on a number of fronts but talk a bit about the character of Ahsoka and how the finale and her fate resonate for you.
DAVE FILONI: As we kept writing the character of Ahsoka we knew it would be ? well, I don?t want to say an uphill struggle ? but we knew it would be a challenge to place a character like her in the midst of the Anakins and Obi-Wans of the Star Wars universe. It was a spot we would definitely have to earn for her and judging by the reaction to last Saturday?s episode it seems that everybody here, and especially Ashley [Eckstein], was able to make it happen. It was a situation where at first [fans were] like ?Why is this kid here?? And now, five years later, people are like, ?Wait ? why is she leaving?? They were sad about it. So that was kind of good for us to see in the reaction.

Next, we have the first two parts of a three-part interview that voice actress Ashley Eckstein did with Newsarama. Here's how Eckstein described Ahsoka's departure from the Order as depicted in that emotional final scene of Season 5.
Nrama: So let me ask you this, Ashley. You know Ahsoka better than anyone in the world, so, did she make the right decision, not going back to the Jedi Order?
Eckstein: Oh. Um... She made the right decision for her, and she made the right decision for the time. I spoke with Dave Filoni about this. There's not a right or wrong decision here. Dave told me, "only Sith deal in absolutes." So you can't have an absolute right or wrong decision. So Ahsoka, everything she went through, she was betrayed on so many levels. She has no trust in anyone anymore, so there's no way she can stay in the Jedi Order and do her job to the best of her ability.

Ahsoka's not the type of character that can do something half way. It's 100% or nothing, she can't do it any other way. I think by staying in the Jedi Order, she wouldn't have been able to give it 100%, so I think in that moment she had to walk away.

Check out parts one and two in full over at Newsarama. We'll update this post when part three is available.

UPDATE: Here's part three of Newsarama's Ashley Eckstein interview.
