Lucasfilm has just announced that our favorite Togruta, Ahsoka Tano, will be getting her own young adult novel titled, Star Wars: Ahsoka. This will explore her time in between Clone Wars and Rebels and how she went from being on the run to a leader in the Rebellion. The novel is written by E.K. Johnston. Here’s the official description:
Ahsoka Tano, fan favorite character from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, will be the star of her own young adult novel from Disney Lucasfilm Press this October 11, 2016! Fans have long wondered what happened to Ahsoka after she left the Jedi Order near the end of the Clone Wars, and before she re-appeared as the mysterious Rebel operative Fulcrum in Rebels. Finally, her story will begin to be told. Following her experiences with the Jedi and the devastation of Order 66, Ahsoka is unsure she can be part of a larger whole ever again. But her desire to fight the evils of the Empire and protect those who need it will lead her right to Bail Organa, and the Rebel Alliance….
I’m not a big reader when it comes to novels. I’m more of a comic book guy. Ahsoka is one of my favorite characters of all time so I will definitely be reading this. However, I personally wish they would have done a comic series for her like they did for Kanan. I’m super curious about how Ahsoka got her white lightsabers and I hope they shed some light on that in this book.
Keep an eye out for this book when it hits shelves in October.
