star wars ahsoka

Like their dad, my son and daughter are STAR WARS fanatics. Unlike me, their fanship doesn't revolve around the blockbuster motion pictures but rather is based upon the Star Wars animated series. As they grew up, watching the newly released epsiode of either The Clone Wars or Rebels was a highly anticipated weekly event that the whole family looked forward to enjoying together. While my love of Star Wars developed around the space opera of Luke, Leia, Han and Chewie fighting the Empire, my kids are more invested in the adventures of cartoon characters like Ahsoka Tano, Sabine Wren, Hera Syndulla and Ezra Bridger battling Imperial Inquisiters and Grand Admiral Thrawn. In fact, they really don't care much for the movies at all but they love the Star Wars animated series and the new live-action shows. 

So, we are all GEEKED that many of our favorite characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels are coming to the live action shows on the Disney+ streaming service. Our whole family was bummed when Star Wars: Rebels ended feeling it came to a conclusion too soon, so we are excited that it seems as if that animated series is continuing in a live action format with AHSOKA. 

Set after the fall of the Empire, AHSOKA follows the former Jedi Padawan of Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy. The show promises the return of not just Ahsoka, but also Rebels cast Sabine Wren, Hera Syndulla, Chopper and Ezra Bridger. Hopefully it will also include Zeb! Plus, Thrawn is returning as the principal adversary and a mysterious Inquisitor villain character has also been teased.
