Star Wars Rebels and Clone Wars fan-favorite, Ahsoka Tano, took center stage during Friday’s Ahsoka’s Untold Tales panel at Star Wars Celebration. Featuring Executive Producer Dave Filoni and voice actress Ashley Eckstein, the panel revealed exclusive details about Ahsoka’s past, present, and future. For Ahsoka fans, this was full of exciting news and I’ve recapped some of the biggest below!
Star Wars: Ahsoka Novel Cover Reveal
After having the novel teased back in March, the cover of Star Wars: Ahsoka was revealed to Celebration attendees during the panel. Written by E.K. Johnston, the novel is set to explore what our favorite Padawan was up to in between the end of The Clone Wars and her appearance in Star Wars Rebels.

Ahsoka Tano Funko Pop
Funko Pops, known for their stylized depictions of various pop culture characters, have gained astronomically in popularity over the past few years. The news that Ahsoka would (finally) be making her Pop debut sent the fandom into a frenzy! Look for the Ahsoka pop exclusively at Hot Topic this fall.
Topps Digital Trading Cards
Fans of Dave Filoni’s incredible artwork will certainly be thrilled about this: Exclusive Ahsoka artwork designed by Dave have made their way into Star Wars Card Trader. Starting now, fans can collect and trade these new digital cards.
A Possible Return to Star Wars Rebels?
Although Executive Producer Dave Filoni was adamant that Ahsoka’s time on Star Wars Rebels had come to a close at the end of season two, he was singing a different tune during the panel. “It just might be possible,” he said, crediting the overwhelming amount of fan support the character received after the finale aired. In what capacity Ahsoka will appear in Rebels’ upcoming third season remains to be seen, but it certainly has fans full of anticipation.
Star Wars Rebels returns this fall for Season Three on Disney XD.
