Star Wars Fans Spot Ahsoka Mistake
Rolling Stone Senior Writer Brian Hiatt shared a grammatical error from the opening crawl in Episode 1 of Star Wars' Ahsoka series on his X (formerly Twitter) account.
Before the action in Episode 1 kicks off, as the opening text crawl teased rumors surrounding Grand Admiral Thrawn's return, Hiatt pointed out that the "Once presumed dead" part erroneously includes a dangling modifier:
"Once presumed dead, rumors are spreading of Thrawn's return..."
The way it's written, the sentence seems to imply that the rumors of Thrawn's comeback are dead rather than Thrawn's death itself being the rumor:
"No one copy edited the opening crawl to 'Ahsoka.' Here we have a painful dangling modifier and a that/which mixup. 'Once presumed dead,' as written, refers to the rumors rather than Thrawn."
Hiatt also pointed out a mixup of the words "that" and "which," with a phrase reading "learned of a secret map which is vital to the enemy's plan." Technically, that word should be switched out for "that."
Will Fans Catch More Ahsoka Mistakes?
As was the case with "jeans guy," the most likely outcome of this mistake will be that Disney+ adjusts the text so that everything is grammatically sound.
And while the streamer is sure to keep its eye out for any more potential errors that may pop up in the show's last six episodes, there are still other concerns fans have with some of the material being delivered in the plot.
And with some of the franchise's rules already being broken as well, audiences are sure to keep a close eye on the details as Ahsoka Tano's solo journey moves forward.
The first two episodes of Ahsoka are now streaming on Disney+, with Episode 3 debuting on Tuesday, August 29.
