Star Wars: How Ahsoka Fans Can Watch Episode 5 In Theaters For Free

l intro 1694187794

With eight episodes in “Ahsoka,” we’re officially at the halfway point. And the team dropped a major bomb on the proceedings by having Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) enter the World Between Worlds, where she meets her old Master — Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen). It’s a brief cameo, but he’s bound to have a larger role in Episode 5, which is likely part of the reason why Disney wants to give some fans the chance to see the next installment on the big screen. It’s bound to be an emotional reunion, as Ahsoka last saw Anakin, a.k.a. Darth Vader, when the two dueled in “Star Wars Rebels.” Darth Vader may be dead by the time “Ahsoka” takes place, but it remains to be seen if this Anakin still has some of the Dark Side in him. 

Going beyond the World Between Worlds, Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto) and her crew successfully completed the Eye of Sion and jumped into hyperspace to retrieve Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen). Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfandi) is bound to be there, too, so there’s a good chance Episode 5 of “Ahsoka” will introduce these characters properly into live-action. That could be yet another reason to give Episode 5 the big screen treatment to make the rest of the series truly feel like an event. 

Even if you don’t get a ticket, you’ll be able to catch “Ahsoka” Episode 5 on Disney+ on September 12.
