Stars Wars Ahsoka showrunner Dave Filoni reveals he knows how Luke Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano met for the first time says " I have a whole story about that"
Showrunner Dave Filoni revealed in a recent interview that he has plotted out Ashoka and luke's first meeting, but whether or not we get to see it remains to be seen.
While we did get to see Anakin Skywalker's former apprentice Ahsoka Tano and his son Luke Skywalker working together in the first season of The Book of Boba Fett as she helped train the young Grog.
however this arc of the show was overshadowed by the arrival of the Mandalorian, but it was clear that Luke and Ashoka have known each other for some time.
of course, this had many fans wondering how the two first met and what transpired between them, well it seems that Dave Filoni has been working on that story arc since his time on The Clone Wars and Rebels series.
Filoni has worked on different Star Wars properties over the years, starting with the highly sucessfull and critically acclaimed animated series Satr Wars: The Clone Wars, where the character of Ahsoka was first introduced, and later on would work on the animate show Rebels.
The upcoming series Ahsoka will link the two shows and will follow Ahsoka and her friend's search for the young Jedi named Ezra Bridger who went missing at the end of Rebels.
In the interview with Screenrant Filoni talked about Luke and Ahsoka's meeting "Yeah, I have a whole story about that, that I devised many years ago, actually, I had to put that tile in place to do what I’m doing now and understand it. I haven’t found a way to tell that story yet – I’ve told a piece of it afterward, but we’ll see. You’d love it, it’s a great story!"
When asked about what we can expect from the upcoming show he replied "I would say that there is a strong aspect of that from what I showed [at the Mando+ panel], and it’s kind of fulfilling the promise of a story that I was gonna tell, and I think we’ve found the best way to tell it. So I’m excited about that, we’ll see how it evolves. It’s just exciting to get to do it, so I can’t wait for people to see it."
Originally the show was supposed to be an animated series but those plans were dropped in favor of a live-action adaption.
Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau have helped breathe new life into the Star Wars franchise after the poor reception of the last trilogy from critics, Hopefully, we will get another solid series.
The show is currently in production and will stream on Disney + in 2023.
