Beware The Heir To The Empire

There’s no light without the dark, as “Star Wars” reminds us time and time again. Sure enough, the “Ahsoka” trailer offers a better look at the late, great Ray Stevenson as Baylan Skoll, a former Jedi turned wielder of the dark side, and his apprentice Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakhno). No doubt, the pair will end up fighting Ahsoka one-on-one at some point during the series since, you know, killing those who dabble in the light side of the Force is kind of what these dark side types are all about. What’s more, this new trailer confirms they’re also in cahoots with Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto), the former Imperial Magistrate and faithful servant to the Big Bad on “Star Wars Rebels,” Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Ahsoka, as you may recall, bested Morgan in combat on “The Mandalorian” and demanded that she reveal where Thrawn has been chilling since the Galactic Empire fell. As it turns out, though, Morgan might not entirely know the answer to that question herself, as we see her, Baylan, and Shin using a holographic star map to apparently locate Thrawn during the trailer. “What happens when we find Thrawn?” Shin asks. “Power. Such as you’ve never dreamed,” Baylan replies.
