Bria: Ever since Ahsoka Tano showed up as Fulcrum on Star Wars Rebels, fans have wanted to know what she’s been up to since she left the Jedi Order. Thanks to a brand new young adult novel by E.K. Johnston, we finally get our answer. Well, some of it. Ahsoka picks up a year after Order 66 with the former Jedi in hiding on a backwater planet but always on alert for the Empire.
Welcome back to Go/No-Go, Tosche Station’s regular feature where we offer our spoiler-free opinion as to whether or not you should spend your hard-earned money on a book, film, or other entertainment. Today on the launch pad: Star Wars: Ahsoka. Lucasfilm Press has been killing it with their middle grade/Young Adult novels and there’s definitely a lot of anticipation for this particular book. How does E.K. Johnston handle the crazy task of filling in the blanks about such a beloved character? To mission control for the verdict!
Ashoka and Expanded Universe fans are in for a treat courtesy of Her Universe. In an e-mail that went out earlier this morning, fans were notified that new shirts are incoming!
