One of this year's most highly anticipated novel releases has to be Star Wars: Ahsoka. After Ahsoka's shocking return, and subsequent exit, in season two of Star Wars Rebels, fans have been clamoring to learn more about the beloved Togruta Jedi-turned-Rebel.
More recently we heard the even more exciting news that the voice of Ahsoka herself, Ashley Eckstein, would be providing the narration for novel's audiobook adaptation. Earlier today the newest episode of The Star Wars Show dropped on the official Star Wars YouTube, and Ashley made an appearance to discuss the upcoming novel with one of the hosts, Andi Gutierrez. In the interview Ashley revealed some surprising details about Ahsoka.
First off, when speaking about the process of voicing the audiobook, she seemingly confirmed that a major character from the Prequel Trilogy will be making an appearance in the book:
"It was an interesting experience because most of the book is in Ahsoka's voice, or kind of in her head. But there's a lot of other characters in it as well. And I read the whole book. So I'm going to apologize right now, because I think it's the first and last I will ever be asked to voice Bail Organa."
Additionally, she also summarizes the plot of the novel and teases that an important part of Ahsoka's journey will be featured:
"The book tells the story of right after Ahsoka left The Clone Wars. So it takes place between The Clone Wars and Rebels, but specifically right after Order sixty six and before she becomes Fulcrum. And There's so many little nuggets in there... It also tells how Ahsoka got her Lightsabers."
