Star Wars fans thrilled as Ahsoka confirms fan theory

Star Wars latest series Ahsoka may have been out on Disney+ for just a couple of days, but it has already prompted several fan theories.

One in particular proved to be true as it recently confirmed the identity of Morgan Elsbeth, the character played by Diana Lee Inosanto, who has already appeared in The Mandalorian.

In episode one, fans realised that they had guessed correctly when Morgan was revealed to be a Nightsister. An ancient, all-female magic order, the Nightsisters of Dathomir summon their powers by tapping into the magical ichor that flow through the planet.

Morgan opens up about her magical abilities when she is rescued from prison by Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson) and his apprentice Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakhno).

The duo presents her with the map to Grand Admiral Thrawn, stolen from Sabine, and later Elbseth tells them that the Jedi temple was "built by my ancestors, the Nightsisters of Dathomir," leaving no doubt as to her affiliation.

When Hati brands her a witch, Elsbeth insists she's a "survivor" and it doesn't take long before we get to see her using her green powers as Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) calls to her.

Fans first spotted Morgan's magical powers in the trailer for Ahsoka, taking a wild guess until her Nightsister identity was made canon in the new series.

Created by Dave Filoni, the latest show in the Star Wars franchise sees Rosario Dawson reprise the titular role of Ahsoka Tano from The Mandalorian.

Set after the events of Return of the Jedi and serving as a continuation to the animated series Star Wars: Rebels, Ahsoka follows the former Jedi Knight as she investigates an emerging threat to the galaxy after the destruction of the Empire.

Ahsoka's first two episodes debuted on Disney+ on August 23, with new episodes airing weekly every Wednesday (or Tuesday evening in the US).
