The Disneyland Resort is no stranger to change as they have always been in a constant flux of expansions and updates since their opening in 1955. While attractions like Mission to Mars, SkyWay, and Splash Mountain have gone extinct, classics like Indiana Jones Adventure, Fantasy Faire, and the entire land of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge have been welcomed additions. Yet, despite all these changes, there have been Disney-defining experiences that have become integral to the Park’s identity. One of the biggest mainstays has been Disney character meet-and-greets.

Ahsoka has been one of the most anticipated projects from the Star Wars Universe. Its title character has been a standout inclusion as she has crossed over multiple storylines while interacting with prominent Star Wars legends from the original films and prequels. Plus, much of the fanbase’s excitement was due to the fact that the new show has been the long-awaited finale to Star Wars: Rebels. Well, Disney has ‘force pushed’ the series’ momentum even further with a D23 Fan Event, exclusive Ahsoka merch, and now her grand introduction as Disneyland’s newest meet-and-greet character.

Yet, before the main act could make her debut, Boba Fett and Din Djarin, along with Grogu came into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to greet the mass gathering of Star Wars devotees.

The new live-action Star Wars hero, Ahsoka Tano, was originally a Dave Filoni creation who made her first appearance in the animated TV show, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Ahsoka was an impetuous, but valiant teenage Padawan under the tutelage of Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker. The talented dual lightsaber-wielding acolyte would eventually turn her back on the Jedi Order after being wrongfully accused of a terrorist attack. She would then carve out her own path to change the galaxy for the better.

Ahsoka Tano can be found just outside Black Spire Outpost at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
