STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Director J.J. Abrams Teases A Fan-Favorite Cameo - SPOILERS

STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Director J.J. Abrams Teases A Fan-Favorite Cameo - <font color=red>SPOILERS</font>

In a new interview, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams drops a potential spoiler about the movie by teasing an appearance from a fan-favourite character. Read on for further details...

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker marks the end of the "Skywalker Saga" and there's a lot fans want to see in J.J. Abrams finale. Well, during a recent interview with Japanese outlet Sora News, the filmmaker seemingly confirmed that we'll get a cameo from The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels character - and huge fan-favourite - Ahsoka Tano.

She was Anakin Skywalker's Padawan and after seemingly dying at the hands of Darth Vader, we learned that Ezra Bridger had plucked her out of time and brought her to the present day. 

This apparent reveal came after Abrams has the interviewer who their favourite Star Wars character is. After they mentioned The Clone Wars breakout, he responded: "Hmmm, Ahsoka, huh? Well then you’ll probably want to watch closely during The Rise of Skywalker."

It's worth noting that rumours have been doing the rounds lately claiming that the movie will feature a number of voice cameos and you can find out all about those by hitting the "View List" button!

How would you guys feel about a cameo from Ahsoka Tano in The Rise of Skywalker?
 

Anakin Skywalker

Anakin

Yes, Darth Vader himself - who was redeemed in Return of the Jedi - will be there to dole out advice to Rey as she "awakens" to battle Emperor Palpatine and end the villain once and for all.
 

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi

Ewan McGregor's voice was used in The Force Awakens, and while we don't know whether we'll hear him or Alec Guinness during this sequence, his presence obviously makes perfect sense. 
 

Yoda

Yoda

The Jedi Master made a surprise appearance in The Last Jedi and given his importance to the franchise and history with Palpatine, the fact he's going to return for this moment is a given. 
 

Luke Skywalker



He essentially helped train Rey (to some extent, anyway) and, as a Skywalker, of course he's going to be there to guide our hero as she takes on her greatest challenge and tries to save the Galaxy.
 

Leia Organa

Leia

We don't know how much of Leia we will see in The Rise of Skywalker, but her relationship with Rey has become a huge part of this trilogy and it sounds like she'll be the final voice the hero hears.
 

Ezra Bridger

Ezra

Well, this is definitely unexpected. The lead of Star Wars Rebels, Ezra Bridger's fate has been a mystery up until now but he clearly ended up dying some time after the Disney XD series ended. 
 

Ahsoka Tano

Ashoka

Another key character in both Rebels and The Clone Wars, we may have underestimated how important Ahsoka Tano is to this franchise if she'll have a voice cameo during this sequence. 
 

Maz Kanata 

Maz

Does this mean Maz dies? The site isn't sure and notes that while dialogue was recorded for this sequence, there's nothing to say that it will actually end up being used in the movie itself. 
 
The site explains that these disembodied voices will likely be layered on top of each other, so there's a strong chance that we won't even be able to hear them all on a first viewing and that there are more the site is unaware of. They note that, "Sources did not identify hearing probable voices such as Qui-Gon Jinn, Mace Windu or Kanan Jarrus." 

Needless to say, this is all really interesting and considering the source is a reliable one, chances are this will end up happening in the movie itself. What do you guys think of these possible cameos?
