Dawson elevates your attention beyond “Star Wars” in every way. She’s even outgrown the scalp growths she inherited from the cartoon character, which look exactly what they are: a dangling pair of rubber sacs.
Mike Hale, The New York Times

A nice series first and foremost, albeit filled with interesting potential characters, plus an exceptional anchoring performance from the late Ray Stevenson, whose charismatic presence here left me moved.
Dan Feinberg, The Hollywood Reporter

Filoni has been with Ahsoka Tano every step of the way and the series is in good hands.

Ahsoka’s first two episodes struggle a bit, but in the end, they develop characters, relationships, and stories enough that we’re very hopeful that the rest of the season will be as stellar as we all want it to be.

Any final thoughts?

No matter how hard it strives for widespread accessibility, it’s a sequel that will be of fundamental interest to established audiences.
Nick Schager, The Daily Beast

These first two episodes of Ahsoka, which make up a quarter of the season, are a bit slow but hopefully they will prove effective in setting the table for an exciting adventure.
Mark Miszoros, The News Herald (Willoughby, OH)

The best players in the first two episodes? [Composer] Kevin Keener, Robots, and Polluting Cats. Ahsoka is quite difficult at first but given the abundance of rich characters and story details at play, hopefully the show will find its groove as it goes along.
