Star Wars Universe Podcast episode 219

Ahsoka • S1 E4

This week on Star Wars Universe Podcast, hosts Matthew Fox and Erin McGowan are joined by professor Matthew Kapell to discuss the huge revelations in episode 4 of the new Disney+ series Ahsoka. In this mid-season episode, Ahsoka takes a shocking fall in her fight against the mysterious Balen, leading to an emotional reunion years in the making between Ahsoka and her former master, Anakin Skywalker.

For the first time ever, the fan-favorite Jedi pairing are brought to life in stunning live action. What will Ahsoka and Anakin say to each other after so many years apart? How will Hayden Christensen’s return as Anakin impact Ahsoka’s journey going forward? Tune in as our hosts share their excitement, speculation, and at times disagreement over this monumental moment for Star Wars fans.

Other topics discussed include:

  • Sabine’s fateful choice and whether she can be trusted
  • The surprise reveal of Anakin’s theme music at the end
  • How the prequels and Clone Wars shaped perspectives on Anakin
  • Guesses about the mysterious realm Ahsoka finds herself in

Join Matthew, Erin, and professor Kapell for a spirited discussion you won’t want to miss! Whether you’re up to date on Ahsoka or waiting to binge, this deep dive offers something for every Star Wars fan.
