Ahsoka Fan Drops A Theory That Divided Fandom Into Two!
Depicting the story of Ahsoka Tano played by Rosario Dawson in the series, it deals with Tano exploring the threats to a vulnerable galaxy and some horrible flashbacks of her childhood. Well, Ahsoka received great ratings, but there were several thousands of reviews that stated the opposite.
With theories surrounding the character of Tano, a fan proceeded to drop quite a spectacular theory on his Twitter that from what the live-action scenes depicted Tano was actually a child soldier!
While I’m still a big believer that the Ahsoka show should have been animated, I think due to the tonal direction & art style of the Clone Wars show, it doesn’t hit home the fact that Ahsoka was 100% a child soldier the way seeing it in live action does pic.twitter.com/yrO1OPuOt5

Yea, it’s the first time I went holy crap she really was that young wasn’t she.

That was one of the things that hit me the hardest this episode. Especially when they went to the Siege of Mandalore, I was like ‘Holy shit’. After 7 seasons of Clone Wars spread out over a decade, its easy to forget that Ahsoka was still essentially a child during all of it
