Differences from The Clone Wars, Season 7

  • In the novel, Anakin and Ahsoka's final conversation where he returns her lightsabers to her is described as him warning his former apprentice of Maul being "crafty" and "having no mercy" in him, whereas the episode "Old Friends Not Forgotten" simply has Anakin wishing Ahsoka good luck and them discussing how her lightsabers now have blue blades. The weapons' new colour are another contradiction, as her first pair of lightsabers is described as having their original green and green-yellow blades in the novel.
  • In the novel, Ahsoka traps Maul in a ray shield, leading to his capture while in the series, Ahsoka catches him when he falls off the rooftop and Rex stuns Maul.
  • Order 66 appears to happen on Mandalore rather than Ahsoka's Star Destroyer, before it crashlands on the Moon.
