Ahsoka Tano might be a fan-favorite Star Wars character, however, Anakin’s young Padawan has yet to appear in any sort of Star Wars movie. Now, a new report says that Snips may very well have a little presence in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Though she won’t be really making a physical appearance in Episode IX, Bespin Bulletin says that Ahsoka Tano will have a bit of a presence in the film in an action sequence with Rey (Daisy Ridley). The Star Wars leak site says that the sequence is going to take place in the third act of the movie when Rey tries her best to battle against Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid).

Sidious, being powerful as he is, will overpower Rey, and according to the report, the Jakku Orphan is going to find herself falling to the ground in defeat. However, Rey will find some unexpected help from all of the dead Jedi, including Ahsoka. Though they won’t really appear in the film as distinct Force Ghosts, their presence will be implied in the sequence (perhaps we’ll get to hear the voices of Obi-Wan, Luke, and Ahsoka) as Rey grows stronger with the Force.

Thanks to the help of the Jedi, Rey manages to push back Palpatine’s Force lightning, making him explode and ending his life once and for all.

It sounds like an interesting way for Lucasfilm to end the Star Wars saga by having Rey call upon the strength of all the past Jedi, much like how Aang uses the help of his past selves in the Avatar state in Avatar: The Last Airbender.
