Ahsoka Suggests Time Travel Is Coming To Star Wars – But This Isn’t New

Ahsoka Suggests Time Travel Is Coming To Star Wars – But This Isn’t New
This article contains spoilers for “Ahsoka.”
Sooner or later, every franchise tackles time travel. “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “Game of Thrones,” the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Family Guy,” the Arrowverse, and even “Riverdale” have all sent characters spiraling through history at some point over the duration of their runs. On “Star Trek,” of course, a journey to the past is just another day ending in “y” for the various members of Starfleet.
It begs the question: why hasn’t that other long-running property with “Star” in the title taken a stab at time travel yet? Well, dear reader, I’m here to tell you that it has … except, like so many of the most interesting elements of “Star Wars” these days, it’s been limited to animation so far. In an intriguing development, however, it seems that may be changing as Lucasfilm Animation boss and “The Mandalorian” executive producer Dave Filoni continues his mission to bring the live-action and animated sides of a galaxy far, far away together.
The latest “Mandalorian” spinoff, “Ahsoka,” sees Filoni acting as head writer, and he’s already spent the first two episodes bringing some of the best characters and story threads from his “Star Wars” animated shows into the realm of live-action. Episode 2, “Toil and Trouble,” even teases the prospect of time travel in the scene where Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto) — the former Magistrate of Calodan whom we previously encountered on “The Mandalorian” — uses a star map to pinpoint the location of her absentee boss, the Imperial Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen). “Thrawn calls to me across time and space,” she states at one point.
Sure, that sounds like the sort of vaguely mystical claptrap that “Star Wars” villains love to proclaim, but it could also be referencing something more concrete: The World Between Worlds.
