In case you hadn’t heard, Ahsoka is back in a big way and SyFy Wire catches up with actress Ashley Eckstein to discuss that return and how Ahsoka fits in after she has left the Jedi Order.
SyFy Wire: We saw Ahsoka walk away from the Jedi Order in Season 5 of The Clone Wars, and then walk down that ladder years later in Season 1 of Star Wars Rebels. How pivotal are these new Clone Wars installments to her journey?
AE: When Ahsoka walked away from the Jedi Order at the end of Season 5, that was never meant to be the end of Ahsoka’s storyline. We were almost done with Season 6 when we got the news that the show was canceled and there were several more stories and episodes that were meant to be produced and meant to be made in order to wrap up our character’s storylines. So we knew that the show and these characters didn’t get a proper ending.
But these next eight episodes that you’re gonna see will wrap up Ahsoka’s storyline in The Clone Wars. So I can’t say much but it’s definitely giving our girl her proper ending for the series… I also wanna be careful and say post these next eight episodes even I don’t know what happens.
With hopes and rumours surrounding a possible Ahsoka and Sabine series, the topic of another spin-off was raised.
AE: Yeah, there’s no point… I honestly don’t know. But I can tell you I would love it if there was. That would be a dream of mine, and Tiya [Sircar] and I have talked about that. We both bug Dave [Filoni] saying that we would love to find where Ahsoka and Sabine are and where Ezra is… maybe we’ll get that series but again, your guess is as good as mine.
