Now, the creative director of Lucasfilm and responsible for several series of the franchise, Dave Filoni, has revealed which episodes of Star Wars Rebels we need to watch if we want to understand what the Ahsoka series has in store for us and the characters presented in its first trailer, which are all live-action adaptations of the titular Rebels.

What episodes of Star Wars Rebels to watch before Ahsoka

This was what Filoni himself commented in a recent interview with Collider, in which the Lucasfilm creative explained which episodes to watch from the animated series if we have no idea about Ahsoka Tano’s past: “I would start with the episode ‘Jedi Night’, where the sad thing happens to Kanan, and even if you didn’t understand what that was, it would propel you forward” explained Filoni.

“If you just watch season four, you’d be set. You can start with that and you get that these rebels are fighting this tyrannical emperor. And that would get you everything and everybody you need. You don’t need to do the entire gamut of Rebels but you shouldn’t. Once you watch that, you’re gonna be like ‘Well, I’m gonna watch it all’.”

Those who have enjoyed Star Wars Rebels in the past will quickly recognize many of the characters that appear in the trailer for Ahsoka, live-action adaptations of the protagonists of the animated series.
