The Star Wars universe has seen its fair share of great Jedi warriors. Now one Star Wars alum has offered his take on who the best Jedi is.
During a livestream on Twitch, Sam Witwer expounded on why he feels that Luke Skywalker is the best Jedi, and Ahsoka shares his best traits. Witwer is best known for portraying the voice of Darth Maul in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.
When it came to Luke Skywalker, Witwer said, “I’ve said this a million times but Luke Skywalker is the best character –the best Jedi because he doesn’t flip his heart, he doesn’t flip his lightsaber as fast, he doesn’t pull down Star Destroyers out of the sky. He makes the moral decision. That’s why he’s the best Jedi.”
Witwer then compared Skywalker to Ahsoka Tano, saying, “Ahsoka Tano is very similar in that way. You know she came from, in her own way, humble beginnings.” he continued. “When you watch that first Clone Wars thing and she comes off the transport –she’s a child, she’s a little kid. She had a lot to learn and she had this great heart but impatience and she was cocky and all that stuff. We got to take that journey with her and I loved that.”
He expanded on his views, giving fans a tease for what’s to come for Ahsoka in The Clone Wars‘ final episode. He said, “And you’re going to see in the last Clone Wars episode that’s coming up…this sort of thesis on Ahsoka Tano and why I think she’s a special character.”
Streaming on Disney+, the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars stars Matt Lanter as Anakin Skywalker, Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex and the clone troopers, James Arnold Taylor as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan and Sam Witwer as Maul.
