Ashoka flips the entire Star Wars franchise by confirming where Grand Admiral Thrawn and Ezra Miller have been for the last nine years.
Jedi Padawan Ezra Bridger sacrificed his life to get the better of Thrawn, the greatest of the Imperial Grand Admirals. Ezra launched a desperate attack to defeat him during the Rebel Alliance’s attempt to liberate Lothal despite constant warnings from The Force.
Miller used his deep links with Star Wars’ hyperspace whales and dragged Thrawn’s flagship into hyperspace, along with himself and Thrawn.
The flagship has been missing since then, and Thrawn missed the entire Galactic Civil War. That was a big blow for the Empire because they missed Thrawn’s unparalleled tactical brilliance.
Even Palpatine believed that Thrawn would’ve changed the entire course of the war. But where has he been all this time? Let’s do some deep-diving.
The purrgils are hyperspace whales capable of zooming across the galaxy by creating micro-tunnels through hyperspace. Legend says that these creatures made hyperspace in the first place, with scientists observing their ability and simulating it to control the phenomenon.
However, it seems like these creatures can do something even more astonishing: they can travel between the galaxies!
This is evident when Lady Morgan recovers a map that reveals the way to Peridea. The path coincides with the cosmic journey of the purrgil, who traverse from a certain point in the Star Wars galaxy to another on the edge of a different one!
Lady Morgan claims that this journey was once made by travelers from another galaxy – travelers who had some link to the Nightsisters of Dathomir. She finally concludes that the purrgil have carried Thrawn and Ezra along this journey through the abyss between the galaxies and to Peridea.
The epic saga that began in 1977 always unfolded “a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away” – a singular galaxy. However, this time, it is different!
The former Star Wars Expanded Universe only explored the possibility of other galaxies on rare occasions, most notably with a mysterious alien race called the Yuuzhan Vong, initially thought to have originated from another galaxy. However, they were later revealed to be exiles from the Star Wars galaxy.
Star Wars is no longer merely exploring intragalactic forces but venturing into a new galaxy altogether.
Now, Lady Morgan’s The Eye of Sion will enable her to journey to Peridea. This world is somehow linked to the Nightsisters of Dathomir, whose peculiar Force abilities may originate from there – implying that it is a realm where the Force behaves differently.
This galactic leap could alter the perception of the Force itself, making Ahsoka one of the most thrilling narratives in Star Wars lore.
