Ahsoka Tano was a character who originally debut in Star Wars animated series Rebels and Clone Wars. A fan favorite in those series it was not surprising that when she made her live-action debut many fans were torn about her casting. Both Dave Filoni and Rosario Dawson herself spoke up about the casting and gave fans confidence in the future of live-action Ahsoka.
Seeing Ahsoka in live-action also had some fans wondering why her appearance was not exactly as they might have expected. Thankfully we got answers on that too. It appears that the showrunners and powers within Lucasfilm truly believe in Ahsoka’s future storyline and how much she resonates with fans.
