Ahsoka Tano in Other Canon ‘Star Wars’ Media

As a long-time fan of Ahsoka Tano, I’ve often bemoaned the fact that she was largely unknown to those who hadn’t watched Star Wars: The Clone Wars or followed her more recent adventures on the Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels. She has yet to make an appearance (or even be referred to by name) in the Star Wars cinematic universe and chances of this ever happening seem, sadly, quite slim. That said, Ahsoka’s found her way ... [Continue Reading]
