The first two episodes of Ahsoka dropped earlier this week, and I am not alone in thinking it could be the best Star Wars series yet. Lucasfilm and Disney are keeping the hype train going with three new character posters. Two of them feature droids who will be well-known to fans, while the villainous third is shrouded in mystery.
There are always new and popular droids emerging in the Star Wars universe, and Chopper can be counted among them. A key member of the Ghost crew in Star Wars Rebels, Chopper makes his live-action debut in Ahsoka, continuing to work alongside Hera Syndulla as she helps lead the fight against the Empire.
We also get a poster for Huyang, a Mark IV professor/architect droid who spent thousands of years teaching Jedi younglings how to construct their lightsabers. That includes Master Yoda and Mace Windu. Huyang now works directly with Ahsoka Tano after the fall of the Jedi Order.
And then there’s Marrok, the helmeted Inquisitor working with Balan Skoll and Shin Hati in their efforts to locate Grand Admiral Thrawn. Marrok is skilled with a lightsaber, and successfully battled Ahsoka at the end of the second episode. There are rumors out there that it could be someone significant under that helmet. Perhaps…Ezra Bridger? Hiding in plain sight?
