Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Question: I don't know if anyone can answer this before the movie comes out, but I read a summary for book version of the movie, which says that Ahsoka is fourteen. In one of the trailers for the movie, she tells Anakin that she wants to prove she is old enough to be a Padawan. I thought children had to be chosen as a Padawan before they were thirteen (according to Wikipedia). Isn't she actually a little late in getting a master?

Answer: George Lucas says she is 11, although everything else says she is 14. And from Wookiepedia..."If a youngling was not chosen by any Jedi Knight to be their Padawan by 13 years of age, the youngling was placed into another, lesser role in the Jedi Service Corps—a tradition abandoned by Luke Skywalker when he created the New Jedi Order." http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Padawan http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ahsoka

Question: I am wondering what the deal is with Ahsoka Tano's chains in her hair. In season 1 episode 7 I think of the clone wars, Ahsoka gets her chain taken off and when she defeats the bad guy she takes it back and says "I think I have earned the right to wear this again" or something to that effect. I have tried Googling this many different ways and I can't find the answer.

Answer: They are called silka beads. Jedi Padawans from species with no hair (such as Togruta and Twi'leks) wear them in place of the Padawan braid.

Question: When Asajj and Obi-wan are fighting and Asajj says "It will when the truth dies with you", why does she drag her lightsabers on the floor for a moment? I didn't understand the point of doing that.

Answer: It was likely just a scare tactic. General Grievous did basically the same thing in Episode III (although much slower).

Question: If Star Wars: Clone Wars happens between Episode II and Episode III, how can Anakin be a Jedi Master? In Episode II he is a Padawan. In Episode III he has the rank of Jedi Knight. But also in Episode III he says that it is an outrage how he is put on the council but not given the rank of master? So how could he have trained Ahsoka if he is only a Jedi Knight? Isn't that against the Jedi Code?

Answer: Both Jedi Knights and Jedi Masters can have Padawans apprenticed to them; the rank of Master is generally awarded once their first Padawan has successfully passed the trials and become a Knight themselves. While Ahsoka calls Anakin Master in formal circumstances, that's merely an indication of her status as his apprentice; Ahsoka being only his first Padawan, Anakin is still only a Jedi Knight.

Question: Are the events in this movie going to be considered canon for the time between Episodes II and III, or will the events in the Clone Wars TV show be considered canon, or both (if the events in the movie possibly take place after those in the show)?

Answer: Canon in the Star Wars universe is a somewhat complex term as it has several levels ordered in a hierarchy of precedence. Facts stated at a certain level are considered as canon, unless contradicted by something at a higher level of canonicity. The uppermost level of canonicity are the six live-action films. Lucas has stated that the television episodes (which include the Clone Wars movie, which can be considered as the first episodes of the TV series) are to be considered as the next level down in canonicity, so below the films, but above any other releases (books, comics and so forth). So, basically, yes, they're to be considered canon, except in any case where they contradict something established in the live-action films.

Other mistake: During the Battle of Teth (the pillared jungle planet), the AT-TE's shoot the ledge at the top and there's not a single mark on the ledge afterwards, despite being hit with several joules worth of fire.

Rex: Who's the youngling?
Ahsoka: I'm Master Skywalker's Padawan. The name's Ahsoka Tano.
Rex: Sir, I thought you said you'd never have a Padawan.
Anakin: There's been a mix-up. The youngling isn't with me.
Ahsoka: Stop calling me that! You're stuck with me, Skyguy.
[Rex starts chuckling.]
Anakin: What did you just call me?! Don't get snippy with me, little one! You know, I don't think you're even old enough to be a Padawan.
Ahsoka: Well, maybe I'm not. But Master Yoda thinks I am.
Anakin: Well, you're not with Master Yoda now. So if you're ready, you better start proving it. Captain Rex will show you how a little respect can go along the way.
Rex: Er ... Right. Come along, youngling.
Ahsoka: [through gritted teeth.] Padawan.

Trivia: When Asajj Ventris is reporting to Count Dooku for the second time and says she will redouble her efforts to find Anakin, Dooku says, "I hope so, for your sake - " He is then cut off. This line connects with part of a conversation in episode 6 of the TV show.
