Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back, Last Jedi mirrored by Clone Wars The Phantom Apprentice | Films | Entertainment

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THE CLONE WARS SEASON 7 EPISODE 10: THE PHANTOM APPRENTICE. Star Wars often mirrors itself across its three trilogies and now the latest episode of The Clone Wars has paid homage to two of the movies. Episode 10 The Phantom Apprentice saw Darth Maul holding out his hand to Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan, inviting her to join him and overthrow Darth Sidious.

The renegade Sith Lord said: “The time of the Jedi has passed, they cannot defeat Sidious.

“But together you and I can. Every choice you have made has led you to this moment.”

He then put his hand out to her before revealing that he had seen in a vision that her Jedi Master Anakin was destined to be Sidious’ apprentice.

After all, the events of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith take place concurrently with these final episodes.

But Luke, like Ahsoka, says: “I’ll never join you!”

Before Vader reasons like Maul: “Luke, you can destroy the Emperor. He has foreseen this. It is your destiny.

“Join me and together we can rule the galaxy as father and son.”

Similarly, both scenes are very similar to the one in The Last Jedi between Kylo Ren and Rey.

Kylo has just slaughter Supreme Leader Snoke and tries to get Rey to rule the galaxy with him.

Ben Solo says: “It’s time to let old things die. Snoke, Skywalker, the Sith, the Jedi, the Rebels – let it all die.

“Rey I want you to join me. We can rule together and bring a new order to the galaxy.”

Who knows what other Star Wars movie Easter Eggs will feature in the remaining two episodes of The Clone Wars?
