Guest Appearances? Fine. Give Ahsoka Tano Her Own Show Though!

Ahsoka Tano readies to fight

Fans of The Clone Wars have been teased with a live-motion Ahsoka Tano for rather some time, and now, that teasing has, seemingly, compensated off. Ahsoka Tano is earning her “guest star” debut in are living-action sort with pretty the flair. From The Mandalorian year 2 to now a rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi collection visual appearance, I want to know when we’re acquiring the whole announcement of her own clearly show. Sure, there’s a rumor floating out there about Ahsoka getting her individual series, but I want affirmation.

Look at it this way: Disney+ programming is focused on a bunch of dudes. Granted, they’re guys I totally appreciate with my whole heart, but each present that has been declared is centered about a man. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Cassian Andor, Mando … you get my point—even Scarlet Witch sequence WandaVision has a shared concentrate appropriate in the title. It’d just be pleasant to have an genuine announcement that Ahsoka will get her individual demonstrate, alternatively than just the rumor, specifically if they are likely to keep on to use her name and fanbase to set her on other Disney+ programming.

When we’re excited about the prospect of Ahsoka in are living-action, section of the dilemma with her, presently, is the casting. Rosario Dawson is rumored to be participating in the lover-beloved, and supporters are understandably upset that the star is embroiled in legal situation over her alleged transphobia towards a former employee. Although the case is even now ongoing, it does not sit appropriate for Disney and Lucasfilm to put Dawson in a purpose that, for quite a few lovers, represents hope and comprehending in a way that would ring inauthentic with that incident.

Whilst the casting is nevertheless not confirmed, I want to focus additional on the character and why, in particular with our existing entire world, she’s an vital character to have in her individual display. When I spoke with Ashley Eckstein (who has been bringing Ahsoka to lifetime with her voice considering that 2008), we talked a great deal about what the character represents for the two Eckstein herself and all of the admirers who search to Ahsoka for assistance:

It is been amazing to watch Ahsoka’s journey in the course of the yrs. Naturally, I’m a little bit biased, since I have a pretty close attachment to Ahsoka Tano, but I understood instantly, from day a person, how distinctive she was, and how amazing of a character she was, so she’s always been around and expensive to my heart. And, in fact, due to the fact I bought to enable originate the character, they allowed me to not only convey my voice, but my coronary heart and soul to this character.

So, I practically experience like she is eternally a element of me, but it is been extraordinary to look at, in excess of the many years, folks drop in really like with Ahsoka just like I have. It is so distinctive to me because Ahsoka is this sort of an remarkable character. To me, she represents hope. She signifies good overcoming evil. She signifies mild, and she brings so substantially superior into this earth, and it just indicates so significantly to me that all people has fallen in adore with Ahsoka like I have.

The factor is, we want that. Star Wars, at its main, has usually been about hope and what these figures represent. It’s why Princess Leia is the experience of the Women’s March and why we appear to Jyn Erso, Rey, and Padme commonly. We’ve even started out to glimpse at Cara Dune in the same way (or at the very least I have, because I really like her really a great deal). Obtaining Ahsoka join the are living-motion ranks with her very own show would carry an totally new everyday living to our representation of hope in the course of the series and would deliver new lovers to The Clone Wars and Ahsoka.

I’m quite excited to see wherever she goes in both equally The Mandalorian and the Obi-Wan Kenobi series (if the rumor is true), but I also hope that she will get her time to glow on her own. We will need far more Ahsoka Tano in our lives.
