SPOILERS WITHIN: Next episode of Star Wars’ Ahsoka hitting cinema screens

September 9th, 2023 by Marc Comments

Man, as if we didn’t already think that the Ahsoka series was leading to something massive in the Star Wars universe, now we learn that the next episode, Episode V, will be hitting selected big screens too.

You can check out the official announcement below. This will be the first big screen Star Wars event since, ugh, 2019’s Rise of Skywalker.

But why? Well, if you watched last week’s episode, you’ll know that Anakin Skywalker seems to have visited Ahsoka in the World Between Worlds and while there are many theories as to what this means, one thing is for sure… it’s going to be big!

Next era of Star Wars movies to be connected in more ways than may seem obvious at first

Clocking in at almost an hour and with Clone Wars, Rebels and Ahsoka showrunner Dave Filni on scripting and directing duties, it’s anyone’s guess what’s coming but it’s almost certain to be massive!

With the sad news that Skelton Crew, which was set for a December release on Disney+, has been pushed back until 2024 due to the strikes in Hollywood, this is at least some good news for Star Wars fans.

Not a chance it’s going to be screening anywhere near me though.

Thoughts? I know you have them! Voice-off in the usual ways on FTN’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
