Fan of The Force Jeremy B. wanted to pass along some really cool quotes, insights and major highlights from last night's first Watch From Home (WFH) Theater celebrity Star Wars stream. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order star Cameron Monaghan and Star Wars: The Clone Wars' Ashley Eckstein were on the livestream and gave some pretty amazing Stars Wars answers to hosts Clint Gage and Max Scoville.
Will Ahsoka Tano Be in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2?
"I get that question at least once a day: Is Ahsoka going to be in Jedi: Fallen Order 2? I've gotten it several times today. I can tell you I haven't recorded anything, but I would always be up for it for sure," says Eckstein.
According to Monaghan, Ahsoka and Cal would probably strike up a friendship if they ever do meet. "They have a lot in common," he said. "They both aren't tied to Jedi belief systems. They both bend the rules a bit so they kind of walk to the beat of their own drum. It would be interesting to see how they would interact with each other. I don't know that two forces of personality would get along or butt heads. I don't know what the dynamic would be."
"That's a time period I would love more Ahsoka stories," said Eckstein. "I really don't know what happens to her. We get a little bit in the Ahsoka novel, but I don't know what happens to her between Order 66 and when she shows up in [Star Wars] Rebels. We do see in Rebels that she has been working for Bail Organa and helping start the Rebellion. I think Ahsoka, at the end of the day, as we see her say in the seventh season, she says, 'When I see people in need, I help them no matter what. I guess that's just who I am.' She would help, and I think that's just in her nature. When she sees someone in need, she helps them. I think it would be a positive meeting between them, whether they continued on together in some way I don't know. I think it's just in Ahsoka's nature, it would be a positive thing."
How Ahsoka Would Have Tried to Stop Anakin From Going to the Dark Side
"Obviously, we see in Siege of Mandalore, Ahsoka wants to talk to Anakin. But she kind of refuses to tell Obi-Wan and Master Yoda. That shows her trust level. She just doesn't trust anyone anymore, anyone except Anakin. There's so much Ahsoka doesn't know, but I do think Ahsoka - and this is just my opinion - would think she could have helped, that she could have stopped him, that she could have maybe helped save him, and obviously would have had a lot of regret there. But they never get that moment. ... [Seeing his fall is] heartbreaking. I really got to know the hero Anakin Skywalker. I do recommend that people watch The Clone Wars between Episode II and Episode III, because it makes the fall of Anakin Skywalker so much more heartbreaking."
Cal Kestis Was Originally Inspired by Clint Eastwood
"Initially, for Cal, they were thinking of going with a Clint Eastwood sort of spaghetti Western wanderer. Ultimately we decided that that wasn't the right point of access for Cal for a story so early for him, but they definitely incorporated some of that ragtag group of outsiders banding together, very classic Western stuff. Also, Cal wears ponchos, which is very Clint Eastwood. There was a lot of references to different films during the discussion, and a lot of times from scene to scene we would be looking at these moments and not only referencing Star Wars moments but also other stuff to be like what is this analogous to, what can we find here. We're all a fan of this stuff, and to be able to experiment within that and find stuff that feels genuine and put our own passions, our own little love letters to the story was important to us."
Ashley Eckstein's Experience Recording Dialogue for The Rise of Skywalker
According to Eckstein, director JJ Abrams only revealed the bare minimum of plot information necessary when those lines were recorded. Eckstein didn't even know to whom Ahsoka was speaking in that scene. She said, "JJ Abrams told me what I needed to know. 'A lead character is looking up near death and the past Jedi are coming to give her advice.' And that's all I knew."
The Clone Wars' Real-Life Order 66 Moment
"I have an Order 66 story. When Clone Wars was canceled at the end of Season 5, it wasn't planned, obviously. We were still in the middle of making more episodes, more seasons, and it was a very sad thing for the cast and crew. We all went up to San Francisco for a series wrap party, which was not a thing at all. At the end of the party, we weren't ready to go home and we were all hungry and we decided to go to In-n-Out Burger. It was the cast and Dave Filoni, and Dave said, 'Hey, I got this, I'll pick up the bill.' And so we were all on one bill, and you know at In-n-Out Burger, they give you an order number. Well, I kid you not -- no one recognized us, but our cast order for our In-n-Out Burger order was Order 66. That was our final meal for the cast before the series ended. So how appropriate for our final meal for The Clone Wars to be Order 66."
Also, the next WFH Theater is taking place tomorrow night (May 21) and will feature Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Bacc and hosted by IGN's Clint Gage and Brian Altano with special guest and massive Star Wars fan Rahul Kohli. If you're interested, it starts at 5PM PT and will be streamed on IGN.com, YouTube.com/IGN, YouTube.com/Cinefix, Facebook.com/IGN and Twitter.com/IGN.
