Upon losing her duel with Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson) and getting knocked into the ocean on Seatos, “Fallen Jedi” ends with our girl Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson) awakening in what certainly looks a lot like the World Between Worlds. There are glowing pathways surrounded by endless darkness just like in “Rebels,” and Ahsoka even comes face to face with her late master, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen). But if “Star Wars” animation fans can pause for a second in between tearing up over the emotional reunion they’ve spent years anticipating, they may start to question things a little.
There’s a lot about the World Between Worlds that “Rebels” leaves up in the air. “Rebels” lead Ezra Bridger was able to access the realm through an ancient Jedi temple on Lothal — currently the only known place where the realm can be reached from the world of the living — and even managed to pull Ahsoka to safety into it through one of its countless doors. Did Ahsoka stumble upon what could easily be one of numerous previously unknown access points on Seatos? Or did Anakin enter the World Between Worlds and pull her there through a door, just as Ezra once did? “Rebels” established that Loth-wolves and other mystical entities with strong ties to the Force can travel through the World Between Worlds, so it’s absolutely plausible a deceased Jedi could, too (especially one with some major unfinished business like Anakin).
