Publisher's summaryEdit

Ahsoka Tano, fan favorite character from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, will be the star of her own young adult novel from Disney Lucasfilm Press this October 11, 2016! Fans have long wondered what happened to Ahsoka after she left the Jedi Order near the end of the Clone Wars, and before she re-appeared as the mysterious Rebel operative Fulcrum in Rebels. Finally, her story will begin to be told. Following her experiences with the Jedi and the devastation of Order 66, Ahsoka is unsure she can be part of a larger whole ever again. But her desire to fight the evils of the Empire and protect those who need it will lead her right to Bail Organa, and the Rebel Alliance....[1]

DevelopmentEdit

"I have always worked on her story, even parts that I know we will probably never see on screen. By broadening her story from the animated series to the written page, I feel we have a real opportunity to provide fans with details about her character that they would not know otherwise. We are also responding to the strong fan support that we have seen Ahsoka receive over the last eight years. The fans want more Ahsoka and we are going to give it to you, and since I've been there since the beginning I am dedicated to working with publishing to help make this book as authentic a part of her story as if we filmed it for the series."

Ahsoka was announced on March 31, 2016 as a young adult novel set between the events of "The Wrong Jedi," in which Ahsoka Tano left the Jedi Order, and her reappearance in Star Wars Rebels. Series producer Dave Filoni said that there is much more of her long history to be told, including parts that will never be seen on screen. A novel gives fans the opportunity to learn more about her. Author E. K. Johnston said that it was a tremendous opportunity and a dream come true to write for Ahsoka and flesh out more of her story.[1]

The cover art was released on July 15, 2016 at the "Ahsoka's Untold Tales" panel at Celebration Europe.[5]

Kirkus Reviews published a brief positive review of the title on August 2, 2016. The review reveals that while on the run, Ahsoka takes on the name of "Ashla" and that she for a time worked as a mechanic on the farming moon of Raada.[6]

Behind the scenesEdit

Chapter 9 of Ahsoka contains an editing error, in which Vartan refers to Ahsoka Tano as "Ahsoka," rather than by the assumed name he knows her as, "Ashla." This however, was corrected in the UK Paperback edition.
