The ultimate Ahsoka Tano episode guide from ‘The Mandalorian’ to ‘The Book of Boba Fett’

mandalorian ahsoka tano clone wars


Update: In anticipation of the incoming Disney+ Ahsoka series, we have expanded this guide to include Ahsoka Tano appearances in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett.

Season two of The Mandalorian set the Star Wars fandom ablaze and for good reason. Bo-Katan Kryze and then Ahsoka Tano, major players from the animated spinoffs of the franchise, made their live-action debuts. While there are plenty of implications for the future of the series and the franchise as a whole, there are also likely a whole lot of people who have seen folks excited for Ahsoka’s arrival and been completely confused. 

Until this season, save for one scene in Solo, the Star Wars animated series (The Clone Wars and Rebels) have existed in a nebulous state – canon to the franchise, but not mandatory or even preferred viewing for many fans. That’s changed now and fans have a whole lot more TV to watch to get the full experience.

But, what if you don’t want to consume 12 full seasons worth of cartoons? Both The Clone Wars and Rebels are about a lot more than just Ahsoka Tano, so what if you just need to cut the chaff and see what might actually be relevant? We’re here to help. Below is a trimmed down episode guide for both TCW and Rebels, designed to get you up to speed on where the galaxy around Ahsoka has been, and then you too can join us in being excited for what’s to come. 

Please note: The Clone Wars episodes did not air in chronological order, though for the sake of clarity this episode guide we’ve organized the episodes as such, so we apologize for the menu jumping. Additionally, this guide will focus on Ahsoka Tano, as other characters from the cartoons that have appeared or been mentioned in The Mandalorian tie back to her, as you’ll see soon enough.

The Mandalorian

S2: E5 – The search for a Jedi on The Child’s behalf leads the Mandalorian to ex-Jedi Ahsoka Tano following a tip from Bo-Katan. We find Ahsoka on her own but she is searching for Thrawn, the final threat from Star Wars Rebels and iconic Legends canon villain. Since this episode aired, more information has confirmed that this is the backdoor for the Ahsoka solo series and will indeed carry on the lingering plot from Rebels. However, it is still not entirely clear if this predates her appearance in Rebels’s final scene.

The Book of Boba Fett

S1:E6 – Ahsoka makes a surprise appearance during this show’s “Mandalorian Season 2.5” arc. She serves as go between for Luke Skywalker and Din Djarin so as to not disrupt Grogu (The Child)’s training. Here, Ahsoka is much more casual than her Mandalorian appearance with Din. Most notable here though is the confirmation that Ahsoka did indeed connect with the son of her former master at some point. This may serve as the kick off point for Ahsoka’s show.


And there you have it! The slightly shorter crash course on Ahsoka Tano – which we hope will prepare you for whatever The Mandalorian has in store for both us and her.
