Fans already have an idea of what will happen in the Ahsoka Tano series. After all, the character's only appearance in The Mandalorian Season 2 strongly suggested she will still be searching for Grand Admiral Thrawn. But is it possible that the new Star Wars show will recycle a storyline that was supposed to be in Rise of Skywalker?

In Colin Trevorrow's original script for Star Wars: Episode IX, Rey, and Kylo Ren were supposed to travel to the planet Mortis where they could discover more about themselves. However, the Duel of the Fates screenplay was ultimately scrapped and replaced with Rise of Skywalker.

Although we won't be seeing Rey and Kylo in the Ahsoka series, it would be interesting if the show actually brings the former Jedi back to Mortis. After all, the planet is an important part of her backstory, and revisiting Mortis could allow Ahsoka to come full circle.

In The Clone Wars Season 3, Ahsoka joined Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi as they traveled to Mortis. It was on the planet where the three Jedi encountered the Father of Mortis who tried to convince Anakin to take his place as the Chosen One and keep the Force's balance by controlling his children the Son and the Daughter.

The encounter ended badly as the Son corrupted Ahsoka against her companions. When he no longer had a use for her, he left her for dead and tried to kill the Father, only to be stopped by the Daughter who shielded their father from the Dagger of Mortis.

Interestingly, Ahsoka was brought back to life because the Daughter agreed to give the Jedi the last of her life essence. The two would be bound for life as the Daughter's companion Morai continued to follow her throughout the galaxy.

We know the Morai is still following Ahsoka in The Mandalorian Season 2 but will she actually revisit the same planet where she once died? It would be an interesting way to wrap up the Mortis storyline for good. However, it's important to point out that this has not yet been confirmed so it's best to take it with a grain of salt.

Rosario Dawson returns as the former Jedi in Star Wars: Ahsoka, which has not yet been given an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
