The Mandalorian showrunner had a very good reason not to introduce Ahsoka Tano in season 1!

The arrival of Ahsoka Tano alongside Din Djarin in episode 5 of season 2 of The Mandalorian was eagerly awaited by Starwar fans. And for good reason, the flagship character of the animated series The Clone Wars has, over time, joined the very private clan of the franchise's favorite Jedi. This is why its introduction to the Disney series was no small feat and had to happen only for a good reason, as the showrunner confided David Filoni : “People know this character. They saw him grow up and the challenge was to take all the elements we had on it and to make them evolve in this live-action version

“. A difficult task which explains the reason why the latter was not introduced earlier in the show.

It was therefore necessary to wait for the writing of season 2 for David Filoni to find the right way to integrate Togruta into his plot. On the same subject : Mom, I missed the plane: This detail from the film allows us to understand how Kevin's parents could have forgotten about him. And for good reason, Ahsoka Tano appeared to be the only one able to bond mentally with Grogu, to know and share her mysterious past with Din Djarin. “ I intentionally didn't do anything with her in season 1 because that I didn't want to ruin everything

” did he declare. Before adding: “ I don't like bringing in characters unless there is real value So when I wrote the episode with her this year, it was really about asking: how do we learn this kid's name? Who could know such a thing? “. As the saying goes: everything comes right on time who knows how to wait, Ahsoka Tano is proof of it!
