Ahsoka Part Seven is the seventh chapter of an American scifi space opera miniseries created and written by Dave Filoni for Disney+. It is part of the Star Wars franchise and a spin-off from the series The Mandalorian, taking place in the same timeframe as that series and its other interconnected spin-offs after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983), while also serving as a continuation to the animated series Star Wars Rebels. The series follows Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to the galaxy following the fall of the Empire. (Wikipedia)

Entitled “Dreams and Madness,” Ahsoka Part Seven has Hera answering to the New Republic for her insubordinate actions while a reunion takes place far, far away.
Sadly, there’s not much that is too effective about this chapter. What these new Disney Star Wars TV shows do excel in would be nostalgic fan-service and thus we have appearances from Anakin Skywalker, C-3PO and Mon Mothma to fill the Easter Egg quotas, if that can be described as a strength.
Which leaves most of our assessment falling into the negative. This chapter is filled with scenes devoid of tension whatsoever. The opening tedious tribunal hearing of Hera sets the tone – boring and inconsequential. The rest of the chapter follows suit. One poorly staged action sequence after another. Characterisation is even worse. Ezra refuses to use a light-sabre and then demonstrates that his force powers are negligible. Sabine is probably one of the worst Mandalorian warriors even seen in Star Wars. Effectively Filoni has let down his Star Wars: Rebels characters badly. Lame.
In the final analysis, Ahsoka Part Seven once more demonstrates that Disney have no clue as to how to do Star Wars justice. Even Dave Filoni has lost his way. Ugh.
… still there’s more …
