The Ahsoka series was undoubtedly a massive love letter to fans of the Star Wars Rebels animated series and while some felt it was a mixed bag, the Rosario Dawson-led project still delivered the goods, so much so that Lucasfilm ordered a second season renewal.

Turns out, the series which finally brought characters like Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren, and Grand Admiral Thrawn to live-action also marked the debut of another fan-favorite character, much to the surprise of fans who are only finding out about it.

A newly released image from the Ahsoka series is making the rounds online featuring an apparent easter egg Dave Filoni was able to sneak in. Now, five months after the project was released, it's revealed that Freddie Prinze Jr. was actually somewhat involved in the project.

Yes, Kanan Jarrus made a cameo appearance in the show and chances are you missed it the first time around.

The image was featured in a blink-and-you-'ll-miss-it moment from episode 4 and unsurprisingly, it was spotted in Hera Syndulla's cockpit.

As for writing, we're unsure if Freddie actually suited up for his "cameo" but the idea of the image being photoshopped isn't too farfetched to believe.

For the uninitiated, Kanan died in the final season of Rebels after saving the Ghost Crew. Considering Ahsoka takes place about 10 to 15 years after the events of Rebels, many believed Jarrus was en route to becoming a Force Ghost but sadly, Prinze Jr. himself shot down the idea of him showing up in the series.

The actor's only live-action appearance as Kanan happened in 2019's The Rise of Skywalker, where he was among the Jedi spirits who encourage Rey to defeat Emperor Palpatine aka Darth Sidious.

The release window for Ahsoka season 2 has yet to be confirmed. Meanwhile, its first season is available to stream on Disney+.
