Since leaving the Jedi Order in season 5 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Ahsoka Tano’s life after the Jedi Order is a bit of a mystery, consider them the dark years of Ahsoka. How did she handle Order 66? How the heck did she become a Fulcrum? Did she ultimately regret her decision to leave the Jedi Order? Questions swarm our minds since we have no solid answer as to what ever happened to baby Ahsoka during this period.
Well there’s good news for you yet, young padawan.
Ahsoka Tano is getting her own Star Wars novel.
“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….” –Disney-Lucasfilm Press
Author of Star Wars: Ahsoka and long time fan, E.K. Johnston, is joining the millions of fans who are jumping for joy over the announcement.
“Writing for Ahsoka is tremendously exciting. She has a blank spot in her story that I know a lot of fans (including myself!) want to see filled in. And being able to help tell her story is a dream come true.”
With this joyous announcement, we can add yet another story from the Star Wars crew to anticipate. (Remember Star Wars: Poe Dameron hits bookstores April 6th and Star Wars: Han Solo will arrive on June 1st!)
