Greenblatt took the spotlight in flashback scenes during Episode 5 as she played young Ahsoka, portraying the version that grew up in front of fans' eyes during the seven-season run of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Will Young Ahsoka Return to Disney+?

With only three more episodes remaining in Ahsoka, there's a chance that Ariana Greenblatt could be seen again for future flashback sequences, especially considering the efforts Lucasfilm put into her debut.

This particular episode heavily utilized flashback sequences to great success while also highlighting Anakin and Ahsoka's duel in the World Between Worlds. While it's unclear if the series will take that path again, especially as heavily as Episode 5 did, the ties back to The Clone Wars and Rebels are helping drive the narrative forward every step of the way.

For the time being, fans are anxiously awaiting the next step in adult Ahsoka's journey, which took her on an intergalactic ride alongside a fleet of Purgill as she continues her search for Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Viewers will also be watching to find out if anything else is retconned from Ahsoka's time in both The Clone Wars and Rebels, although there surely won't be any complaints should it mean more of Greenblatt's young heroine.

The first five episodes of Ahsoka are now streaming on Disney+.
