Ahsoka Tano is my favorite character. She’s the reason why I got so involved in the Star Wars community. I remember watching the trailer for the Star Wars: The Clone Wars feature film and being genuinely excited to discover that Anakin had a Padawan. It’s been one amazing ride since then, and I look forward to her story continuing in Star Wars Rebels. I don’t know where her path will take her, but she’s a true inspiration in my life and she’ll continue to be that for a long, long time.
Star Wars Rebels returns June 20th, 2015 at 9:00 PM EST on Disney XD.
