Star Wars: Ahsoka Could Reportedly Appear In Obi-Wan Disney+ Show

0

Ahsoka Tano could appear on the Obi-Wan TV show for Disney+. The fan-favorite Clone Wars standout is finally making the leap to live-action, with Rosario Dawson reportedly playing Ahsoka on The Mandalorian season 2. While that casting isn't official yet, viewers are very excited about the development - even though it's expected Dawson only has a supporting role. Fans are curious to see how Ahsoka fits into The Mandalorian's larger narrative, particularly when it comes to Baby Yoda's origins and the mysteries surrounding the darksaber.

Though Ahsoka was subject to intense backlash when she first debuted in 2008, Anakin Skywalker's former Padawan evolved into one of the most popular Star Wars characters in the entire franchise. She's been a central figure on animated Star Wars shows Clone Wars and Rebels, so some believed her live-action introduction was just the first steps to something larger. Just yesterday, there was talk of Lucasfilm possibly developing an Ahsoka TV show for Disney+, and now it sounds like she might become part of another one of the streaming service's Star Wars projects.

Per The Illuminerdi, the plan is for Ahsoka to be in the Obi-Wan TV show. Unsurprisingly, exact specifics about her role there are currently being kept under lock and key.

Considering Ahsoka and Obi-Wan's relationship in Clone Wars, it wouldn't be surprising for the two to have a reunion on the Obi-Wan show. However, there's still much about that series that remains a mystery. After being officially announced at last year's D23 Expo, Obi-Wan encountered some problems and is undergoing rewrites. As such, it's difficult to predict what the show's core narrative will entail. At various points in its development, Obi-Wan was rumored to feature a bearded Jar Jar Binks and feature a plot where Obi-Wan watched over young Luke Skywalker. As exciting the prospect of Ahsoka appearing on Obi-Wan is, fans should keep their grains of salt handy until more concrete information about the series is revealed. It's unknown when that will be, but Star Wars Celebration is still scheduled to take place in Anaheim this August.

One of the biggest unanswered questions in Star Wars canon is how Obi-Wan learned Anakin survived on Mustafar. The now defunct Legends explored that topic, but it's something the official Disney canon hasn't addressed. Many have theorized this is something the Obi-Wan show can touch upon, and it's here where Ahsoka could factor in. She had an emotional encounter with Darth Vader on Star Wars Rebels and knows the truth about what happened to Anakin. It wouldn't be out of the question for her to try to track down Obi-Wan to let him know. The timelines match up, and it would be a cool way to further integrate Star Wars' animated projects with live-action. Time will tell, but Ahsoka and Obi-Wan having that conversation would make for compelling television.

Kanye West‘s Former Bodyguard Reveals Intense Guidelines & ‘Ridiculous’ Rules

0

Kanye West is well known for his musical talent, and also equally popularly recognized for his controversial conduct and sentiments. A former bodyguard of West has opened up about his time working for the rapper and the intense and often "ridiculous" rules he had to follow.

News coverage of music artist Kanye West does not stop at his music career. The 42-year-old rapper is known for openly speaking his mind, whether it's about music, fashion, politics, religion, or marriage to his wife Kim Kardashian. Over the course of West's career, he has made unforgettable moments, including interrupting Taylor Swift's VMA acceptance speech to blasting former President George Bush for "not caring about black people." His unconventional, and often controversial, behavior has only increased over the years with avid support for President Trump and claiming that slavery was "a choice." In a recent report it has been revealed that West's antics aren't limited to being on camera.

During a recent episode of the Hollywood Raw podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn, West's former bodyguard, Steve Stanulis, shared about his time working for the rapper. The working relationship between the former New York City Police Department officer and the Yeezy designer started off intense from their first encounter. "I was supposed to meet him at the studio. When he gets there, we get into the elevator and he's like, 'Aren't you going to push what floor we're going to?'," recalls Stanulis about first meeting West. "I said, I have no idea, it's my first day." The retired cop's lack of knowledge of what floor they were going to lead to one of West's infamous rants.

While Stanulis was able to dissolve that instance with what he refers to as the "one, two, threes," that would not be the last time the former security guard would have to use his method. "It happened numerous times I gave him the one, two, threes," Stanulis stated. He also went on to share some of the rules and guidelines he had to follow, for instance being instructed "to stay 10 paces behind him on a city street" and how West would get angry at him for "being in his shot."

West may be known for his conduct and being difficult to work with but that he is also considered one of the most talented and hardworking artists of our time. The rapper has been quiet now, allegedly working on his music. Maybe one day his work will outshine his unwarranted opinions and give him credit for his art. For the full interview with Stanulis, listen to Hollywood Raw.
