The Five Saddest Moments in ‘Star Wars’

While Star Wars has a lot of fantastic, memorable and enjoyable moments the films have also provided some of the most surprising and saddest experiences I’ve ever had as a movie viewer. From the tears I shed when Padme died back in 2005’s Revenge of the Sith to the waterfall that poured from my eyes after the heartbreaking development of Rogue One there have definitely been some sad moments throughout the Star Wars franchise and I am here to share them with you. Enjoy!

Ahsoka Tano Leaves the Jedi Order

I’ve just recently watched the entire series of The Clone Wars on Netflix and I was utterly blown away. I missed it when it was on Cartoon Network but in a way I’m glad because I was able to binge watch all six seasons which was a ridiculously fun experience for me. The most heartbreaking episode was definitely when Ahsoka Tano left the Jedi Order…for good. Ahsoka was an amazing character and after six seasons watching her growth from a young padawan to a talented Jedi knight she had really begun to grow on me. When she got framed for bombing the Jedi temple she went on a self-inspired investigation to prove her innocence. She was still captured by the Jedi and nearly sentenced to exile from the Jedi Order but the true culprit was caught and she was freed of all charges. But by the time her name was cleared her faith in the Jedi had been shattered and she decided to willingly walk away from the Order. It’s actually one of the saddest moments I’ve seen in Star Wars and it made me cry.

Ahsoka was one of my favorite characters in the cartoon and the end to her five season story was tragic. I know she returns in Star Wars: Rebels and even though I haven’t watched that cartoon yet either (it seems there will be more binge-watching in the future :)) I’m sure her continued story will be just as awesome.

My Experience Binge-Watching ‘The Clone Wars’

When The Clone Wars debuted on Cartoon Network back in 2008 I missed nearly every episode of its long six seasons except for maybe four of them and I was bummed about that. I am a huge Star Wars fan (as you may know) and so if there’s anything to do with Star Wars I want to know about it. Well, it’s been ten years since the television show debuted and after discovering, with great excitement, that they had all six seasons on Netflix I decided to binge-watch it.

Oh. My. Goodness. This show is so ridiculously entertaining that I’m still a little dumbfounded that it was that good. The Clone Wars is a cartoon made for children and yet the creators and writers didn’t treat it that way. The rating for the show was PG and for good reason. It is hands down the most violent children’s cartoon I have ever seen. And the scenarios were never childish. Every episode was like watching a 23 minute Star Wars movie full of action and suspense. I was utterly riveted.

And not only was the show really enjoyable but it introduced so many incredibly strong female characters.

There was Ahsoka Tano, Anakin’s padawan, sidekick, and trusted friend. It was amazing watching her turn from this childish Jedi padawan who made rash decisions based off of emotion into a full-fledged Jedi Knight who was wise, benevolent, and powerful. Her arc throughout her five seasons was a blast to watch and the way her story ended was so sad.

It was the first time I had seen a Jedi willingly walk away from the Jedi Order and it was aheartbreaking moment watching her say goodbye to Anakin, her master and best friend. They had been through so much together but a simple misunderstanding had destroyed their friendship and mutual trust in each other.

It makes her story that much more interesting because due to her leaving the Jedi Order she wasn’t victim to Order 66 and I know she was part of the Star Wars: Rebels show but what did she do between that time? I think a Star Wars Story should fill in that gap because now I’m super interested and I’m sure there other people who feel the exact same way.

Asajj Ventress

Asajj Ventress was such a fascinating character. She was an assassin trained by Count Dooku in the Dark Side of the Force but was cast out due to the infamous Sith rule of two. She wasn’t a very complex character but she was cool all the same, especially with the shortage of female villains in Star Wars. I wish there were more female baddies in this franchise but at least she’s part of the meager list.
