Audiobook for Upcoming Ahsoka Novel will be Read by a Familiar Voice!

By  | 

The Star Wars Underworld is reporting some exciting news!

Ashley Eckstein, who voices Star Wars: The Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano, will be the voice for the audiobook of the upcoming novel Star Wars: Ahsoka.

Miss Eckstein has become a fan favorite in the Star Wars fandom. She is the creator of Her Universe, a geeky clothing line for women. Ahsoka’s journey has resonated with many including myself. We celebrated with the hashtag #AhsokaLives when the character returned in season two of Star Wars: Rebels. Fans still petition on Twitter for Clone Wars to be completed since it was cancelled with the Disney buyout. There were still two seasons in development which would have taken us up to the events of Order 66. We wondered and waited to learn what happened to Ahsoka from the end of the Clone Wars up to her being a rebel leader in Star Wars: Rebels.

With the new Ahsoka book out on October 11th, 2016, we will finally get some insight on our favorite padawan’s story. It’s being written by E. K. Johnston.

I’m over the moon excited for this news. Normally, I don’t like audiobooks, but I’ll definitely make an exception for this one!

Check out the official synopsis of Star Wars: Ahsoka below:

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.

    I’m in the same boat with Hope. I normally don’t buy audiobooks either but this just shot up to the must buy list for me. Great news!
