One of the most popular faces in the Star Wars pantheon of personalities these days is Ahsoka Tano, and the voice behind her has been actor Ashley Eckstein. First introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie (and animated series), even though that series has ended, she (both the character and the actor) have become far more popular than anyone would've ever thought. And that carried over into the recent Star Wars Celebration at Anaheim, California.
And for Eckstein, it was like a homecoming.
"The sense of community here is unrivaled," Eckstein tells Popverse's Ashley V. Robinson. "I mean, it’s so supportive. The second you walk in through the doors you feel like you’re at home. We’re at home. We’re with family and it’s just so nice to be home again."
(If you get 'Han Solo returning to the Millenium Falcon in Star Wars: The Force Awakens' out of that, you're not the only one.)
Here is Popverse's interview with Eckstein about Star Wars, her Mindful Matters video series, and all things Star Wars Celebration Anaheim:
Star Wars: Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels are both available now on Disney+. Ashley Eckstein's Star Wars: Mindful Matters video series is available now on the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel, with new episodes coming throughout the rest of the year. The live-action Ahsoka series debuts in 2023 on Disney+.
And lastly, you can shop at Eckstein's Her Universe online anytime, and also both at conventions and your local Hot Topic.
