Anakin Skywalker's apprentice, the padawan Ahsoka Tano, is nowhere to be seen in the live-action Star Wars films. Watching Revenge of the Sith, in fact, we get the impression that the hotheated and impetuous Anakin's only experience with Jedi apprenticeship is his own tortured relationship with Obi-Wan.

But Ahsoka features prominently in The Clone Wars, the perfectly canon CGI animated series that's set less than a year before the climactic events of Revenge of the Sith. Ahsoka is a major player in the Clone Wars themselves, and yet vanishes from the company and, for all we can tell, memories of Anakin and the Jedi council.
Naturally this has led to all sorts of theories on exactly what Ahsoka's fate is, ranging from the plausible to the hilarious. Amy Hill, our Star Wars expert, ponders a long list of possibilities, adding her take on the evidence for and against each supposition.
Personally, I suspect all of this speculation will be rendered moot when George Lucas releases the twentieth-anniversary Special Edition of Revenge of the Sith, in which a scene is introduced, intercut with Anakin and Padmé's lovemaking, where it turns out that Ahsoka was accidentally killed by Jar Jar Binks in a bizarre daiquiri-making mishap. But we'll have to wait for confirmation on that.
