The reason for Anakin Skywalker’s good humor at the beginning of “The Revenge of the Sith” is given in “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”


Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a rare example of a beloved canceled show that came back stronger than ever thanks to its fans. The show had an interruption of almost six years between season 6 and 7. But the last season has just ended on Star Wars Day and that changed the way fans see Star Wars canon forever. One aspect on which this helped to understand why Anakin was in such a good mood Revenge of the Sith.

Anakin Skywalker was immensely hopeful as he fled to save the Chancellor because of Ashoka

Revenge of the Sith is troubled with agitation and pain from the start. Fans knew how it was going to end, but even at the start, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker were fighting. They left to save Chancellor Palpatine from Grievous, and it could go wrong.

So why is Anakin in a good mood? More particularly with its hilarious line, “This is where the fun begins. “

For starters, Anakin is known being arrogant and having a little too much confidence at times. Star Wars: The Clone Wars shows that Anakin sometimes enjoys fighting in war, even if it has lasted for years; he and Ahsoka often make games of it.

However, as the author of the Ahsoka novel, E.K. Johnston, tweeted May 10, The Clone Wars gave a real reason for his mood.


Yes, if you wanted to cry something else at night, it’s a good thing to add to your list. Anakin was immensely certain that Ahsoka would join the Jedi as Padawan after the siege of Mandalore. By the time Johnston announced himself, the Republic was more or less winning the war, and all they had to do was capture Grievous; he was coming to an end. He also went to see Padmé after months of absence.

On top of that, Ahsoka had to come back, now that she was in touch with him again.

Was Ahsoka really going to return to the Jedi Order?

And it wasn’t just hope or blind optimism from Anakin. He could probably sense that Ashoka wanted to return to the Order.

Ahsoka left for a reason. When it was designed to bomb the Jedi Temple, the Jedi Council did not support its declaration of innocence. Instead, they just kicked her out of the Order, with no investigation from them.

However, from the moment Ahsoka finds Anakin and Obi-Wan, you can see that she is in conflict with her feelings. But his desire to join is particularly evident during his last meeting with the Council; after Yoda asked her if she was doing this as a Jedi, she said no, “not yet”. Then it makes him want to talk to Anakin, the most likely to talk about coming back. Even with Mace Windu’s condescending tone, she still seemed ready to work with Anakin.

If things had gone well or if Anakin had been able to speak to Ahsoka, then she would certainly have considered the possibility more. If she had spoken to Anakin, he could also have been more dissuaded from joining Palpatine and the dark side. Especially if Ahsoka had spoken to him, privately, about Maul’s vision.

“The Clone Wars” really changed the perspective of “Revenge of the Sith” with the additional context it gave

Until the premiere of Season 7, audiences never thought that Ashoka was considering returning to the Jedi Order. On top of that, Anakin’s point of view became clearer.

On the one hand, Bo-Katan aggressively reminds Obi-Wan of his deceased sister, Satine. Obi-Wan was in love with the now-deceased Duchess of Mandalore and even told her that if she had asked him, he would leave the Order to be with her. But, everyone chose their own homework, and she confessed her love to him by dying. Anakin is struck by this, when Bo-Katan brings up Satine. You can easily see how this plays a role in his emotions when he has the vision that Padmé will die. He does not want to commit his master’s mistake and will do everything to prevent his death.

In addition, Ahsoka’s fight with Obi-Wan for helping the Chancellor and not Mandalore reminds Anakin that the Jedi betrayed her. They acted horribly and repelled Ahsoka. She tells Obi-Wan that the Jedi “play politics” and don’t help people. This influence is clearly reflected in Anakin’s line on Mustafar: “In my opinion, the Jedi are bad.” Now he’s already corrupt at that point, but doesn’t he have a point to some degree?

Anyway, Anakin and the rest of Revenge of the Sith has taken new forms due to The Clone Wars. It also doesn’t help that Anakin’s line “This is where the fun begins” is actually a snap when Ahsoka first said it. These are things Star Wars the fans cry at night.
