New character posters for the Clone Wars era Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, and Captain Rex have been released, featuring the live-action versions of the characters featured in episode 5 of Star Wars: Ahsoka.

The episode, which marks mid-season for the latest live-action Star Wars series, features Ahsoka Tano on the cusp of death, undergoing continued training from her former Master, Anakin Skywalker. The lessons consist of flashes back to the Clone Wars, featuring Hayden Christensen donning the iconic armor for the first time as Anakin and Ariana Greenblatt perfectly portraying a young Ahsoka Tano. The trip down memory lane also consists of a glimpse at the Siege of Mandalore, which offers a brief interaction between Ahsoka and Captain Rex.

To say the fan response has been positive would be an understatement.

The character posters can be seen below:

“Shadow Warrior” was directed by Ahsoka creator Dave Filoni, and the amount of care in the episode is showcased throughout each minute of the episode. The fifth episode was such a cinematic experience it was shown in select theaters and is being largely considered one of fans’ favorite pieces of live-action Star Wars media from Disney+ thus far.

New episodes of Star Wars: Ahsoka are released Tuesdays on Disney+ at 6 p.m. PST/9 p.m. EST. Stay up to date on the series with episodic recaps from Nerds & Beyond week to week here.
