|Padawan no more! Ahsoka Tano's post- Jedi life begins in STAR WARS: AHSOKA, out now.|
Never have two words been more emotionally important, nor more crowd-rousing, to dedicated fans of THE CLONE WARS animated series than with their acknowledged and moved event witnessing of young Padawan Ahsoka Tano, female role model for all ages, departing her once beloved Jedi Order, in front of her shocked master and friend in Anakin Skywalker, which concluded the show's complete fifth season and its official run. What happened to Ahsoka between the time she descended those fateful Jedi Temple steps and eventually boarded the blockade running Ghost freighter nearly twenty years later, revealing herself as a Rebel operative in the fight against the fearsome Empire, can now finally be revealed in the critically acclaimed, STAR WARS history-making, revelation-packed storytelling that is New York Times bestseller hit AHSOKA, by E.K. Johnston, now finally reaching the UK shores via DISNEY BOOKS.

Everything previously hinted at in three sadly never-completed animated story arcs, online conversations, behind the scenes featurettes, and events described by her co-creator in THE CLONE WARS Supervising Director Dave Filoni to voice actress Ashley Eckstein at the lively Ahsoka's Untold Tales panel from London's CELEBRATION 2016, is finally unified and given substantive form by Johnston, detailing the former Jedi's life-changing, extraordinary evolution in adapting to new challenges with the fallout of the Galactic War, the initiation of the blood-soaked ORDER 66 that would kill so many of her friends, coming to terms with the building darkness around her and garnering a new life whilst hiding in plain sight of her enemies, leading to her ultimate heroine rebirth as part of the Rebel Alliance in Season Two of THE CLONE WARS animated successor, STAR WARS REBELS. All this, and much more (watch out for some subtle ROGUE ONE linkage!), will entertain and illuminate STAR WARS fans and Ahsoka Tano fans everywhere with this officially approved and canon young reader's novel - a must-have for Christmas and beyond, part of a franchise publication cycle that has been in ever-popular ascendance this year, and which will also help to satiate the fans' new wait for Ahsoka's eventual destiny beyond her extraordinary lightsaber confrontation with Darth Vader, on the Sith world of Malachor. Now more than ever to her fan family, Ahsoka still lives!
