Among them are writers Michael Moreci (Roche Limit, Burning Fields) and Tim Daniel (Enormous, Curse).

Ahsoka Tano at the ‘Star Wars: Identities’ Exhibition

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.

Ashley Eckstein: “Ahsoka Started a Movement”

During her hour-long panel at this year’s Emerald City Comicon, voice actress Ashley Eckstein shared some amusing anecdotes about how she landed the role of Ahsoka Tano back in 2006 and took the opportunity to answer fans’ questions about Ahsoka’s future, her thoughts on the Rebels season two finale, and her sci-fi clothing line, Her Universe.
