Latest episode of Ahsoka hailed as having the 'best shot ever seen' in Star Wars

Fans have lost their minds as Ahsoka duels with a very familiar face.

The latest Star Wars franchise to hit the small screen is getting a lot of praise after its fifth episode landed on Disney+.

Ahsoka follows the former Jedi Padawan of the same name, who was an apprentice to Anakin Skywalker, as she investigates an emerging threat to the galaxy following the fall of the Empire.

It has been getting rave reviews since it premiered in August, however the latest episode is being hailed as some of the best moments in Star Wars...ever.

There are some spoilers below so if you haven't seen it yet then stop reading.

Ahsoka (played by Rosario Dawson) is in the World Between Worlds after a failed battle with Skoll.

She meets up with Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) and they face off against each other in one hell of a lightsaber fight.

In one moment, Anakin marches towards Ahsoka while she's on a platform and it quickly flashes between him and a silhouette of Darth Vader.

There's also a flashback to the Clone Wars where the two also duel and we get another Vader silhouette.

People have gone absolutely wild over the scene.

One said: "Okay so it’s agreed that episode 5 of Ashoka is the best thing Disney has done with Star Wars period right? Like this was PEAK STAR WARS."


A third wrote: "As someone who grew up with the prequels and got to have the clone wars series to watch in my teen years. Ashoka is everything I wanted from a SW show and it makes me so happy."

A fourth quipped: "This is probably the best shot I have ever seen in Star Wars."

At the end of episode five, Ahsoka gets recovered by Syndulla’s crew before she recruits a pod of Purrgil to take her to Ezra.

The episode currently has a 91 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes and critics are fawning just as much as the fans.

Tessa Smith from Mama's Geeky penned in her review: "Not just the best episode of the series so far, but the best Star Wars fans have gotten in years. Cinematically stunning and emotional, it is easy to see why it was played in movie theaters around the country for fans."

We have three more episodes to go for the first season of Ahsoka and we don't know if we'll get to see Anakin again.

Even if we don't, fans have been given a moment that they will never forget.
