What a journey Ahsoka Tano has been on. When she first appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie in 2008 she was viewed as the second coming of Jar Jar Binks. However, five increasingly intense and rewarding seasons on Cartoon Network transformed her into a fan-favorite and elevated voice star Ashley Eckstein into the champion of Star Wars’ oft-overlooked female fandom.
Ahsoka allowed us to see Anakin Skywalker from an angle that the Prequel Trilogy had failed to hone in on, as the heroic figure he had been painted as by Ben Kenobi way back in A New Hope, and gave us something the franchise sorely lacked on-screen: a kick-ass Jedi woman in a canon largely dominated by men.
After Lucasfilm was acquired by Disney, The Clone Wars was canned with two subsequent seasons released in truncated form to finally resolve some of the unanswered questions. Then to the delight of the fandom she returned for Star Wars: Rebels and now finally she makes her live action debut on Disney+, brought to life by Rosario Dawson in The Mandalorian.
