Ahsoka the animation version had an incredible journey through the Star Wars universe and is a truly heartwarming story. Voiced by the talented Ashley Eckstein, she was originally introduced as Anakin Skywalker’s feisty Padawan pupil in the critically acclaimed theatrical film Star Wars: The Clone Wars. However, in the first five seasons of her subsequent anime series, Ahsoka’s character has captured the hearts of viewers and has grown into a strong and believable Jedi trainee who has gained a loyal following.
Fans were disappointed when the Clone Wars abruptly ended, leaving Ahsoka’s story unsolved as she made the difficult decision to exile herself from the Jedi Order. But with the live-action series coming on Disney+, fans are going to get a lot of fun. The cast in the series looks very promising and can’t wait for the series to be aired.
