How old is Ahsoka? She’s been part of the Star Wars canon for 15 years, appearing in different movies and TV shows – so, here’s a breakdown of her age across all of her appearances.

Star Wars fans first met Ahsoka in 2008’s The Clone Wars movie, introduced as the “snippy” Padawan to Anakin Skywalker. She’s since become one of the most important figures in the galaxy far, far away, especially after making her debut on Disney+, essentially acting as a link between the prequel trilogy, original trilogy, and the TV shows.

This is the franchise that began with chapters out of chronological order, so keeping tabs on the timeline can be a little bit tricky – especially when you have a character like Ahsoka, who’s made the leap between animation and live-action with different stars portraying her.

Following Episode 5, which featured a young version of Ahsoka as well as Rosario Dawson, some fans are likely wondering: how old is she, really? We’re going to break it down as simply as we possibly can.

How old is Ahsoka in the new show?

Ahsoka is 48 years old in the Disney Plus series.

She was born in 36 BBY (before the Battle of Yavin), as seen in the first episode of Tales of the Jedi, and the new series is believed to take place in 12 ABY (after the Battle of Yavin) – although this is the subject of debate, with Jon Favreau throwing our grasp of the timeline out of the window when he suggested Grogu spent “many years” with Mando before spending two years apart with Luke Skywalker, which contradicts the official Star Wars: Timelines book.

Some people say Ahsoka takes place in 11 ABY, which would make her 47 – believe what you will, but she’s definitely around that age.

There’s three points to consider. Firstly, when she was transported to the World Between Worlds and reinserted into the timeline, saved from certain death at the hands of Darth Vader, she technically didn’t age – if you’re 25 years old and you jumped 100 years into the future, would that make you 125, or a 25-year-old who time-travelled 100 years? This is pure pedantry, admittedly, so it’s easier to say she’s two years older.

Secondly, the epilogue in Star Wars Rebels has since been retconned by the new series. We got a do-over of that moment when she recruited Sabine again, but she became Ahsoka the White under different circumstances in Episode 5.

Thirdly, her voice – that of Ashley Eckstein, the character’s original actor – can be heard in The Rise of Skywalker as Jedi call out to her. That takes place in 35 ABY, which would place her in her 70s. She’s most likely dead by that point in the timeline, but this hasn’t been confirmed.
