The hit show ruins the timeline.

Needless to say, Disney +'s foray into the Star Wars universe has been a mixed bag, as while The Mandalorian and Andor turned out to be great additions to the iconic space opera, projects like Obi-Wan Kenobi and The Book of Boba Fett truly disappointed the fandom. Fortunately, the streaming giant seems to have realized its mistake, as the Ahsoka series has managed to delight fans new and old and become a truly beloved series.

That said, it's not as if Ahsoka doesn't have its problems and flaws, as fans have been able to compile quite an extensive list of things that bother them about the Rosario Dawson-led show. And the biggest gripe of all is how the show treats the continuity of the Star Wars universe as a whole.

Plot holes galore

In the recently released Episode 7, fans were able to spot two major inconsistencies, both of which make no sense in the larger Star Wars story. Don't worry, the writers did a good job of avoiding the most ridiculous mistakes, like bringing dead characters back to life, but they still failed in smaller details.

While fans were thrilled to see Hayden Christensen reappear as Anakin Skywalker in the form of a holovid teaching Ahsoka how to use two lightsabers, they couldn't help but notice that the timeframe for the creation of this holovid made no sense. Ahsoka revealed that this lesson was recorded shortly before Anakin left the Jedi Order, but Anakin's armor from the first season of Clone Wars and Ahsoka practicing a move she could not do until Clone Wars season 3 prove that this timeframe makes no sense.

Also, the idea that the events of the show take place after The Mandalorian Season 3 doesn't hold up to scrutiny, as Ahsoka waiting a whole year to interrogate prisoner Morgan Elsbeth is a bit too hard to believe.

Fans prefer not to pay attention

However, all of the above plot holes will only bother the most die-hard Star Wars fans and can be easily overlooked by a casual viewer. After all, Ahsoka is a great show, and such minor problems shouldn't really matter. It's easier to ignore these plot holes than to worry about them ruining the entire franchise.

Ahsoka Episode 8 will premiere on Disney + on October 3, 2023.
