PHOTOS: Heroines of Destiny Panel and The Black Series Grand Admiral Thrawn Reveal

In case you were unable to catch the Heroines of Star Wars panel at Star Wars Celebration yesterday, here’s a bit of what you missed, as well as the reveal of The Black Series 6-inch Grand Admiral Thrawn figure with Dave Filoni and Timothy Zahn:

Moderated by Amy Ratcliffe (host of “Lattes with Leia” podcast), fans in attendance enjoyed a conversation about strong female characters central to the Star Wars universe and how they have inspired generations of fans; panelists included: Dave Filoni (executive producer Star Wars Rebels), Ashley Eckstein (“Ahsoka Tano”), Tiya Sircar (“Sabine Wren”) and surprise guest Daisy Ridley (“Rey”). The three actresses were surprised on stage with the reveal of their new Adventure Figures by Hasbro from the just-announced Star Wars Forces of Destiny. As part of the reveal, fans were treated to a sneak peek at the first animated Forces of Destiny short, which will launch on Disney YouTube in July 2017.

Star Wars Review: “Ahsoka” Audiobook

ahsoka_novel_cover

This a review of the audiobook version of Ahsoka, written by E.K. Johnston and narrated by Ashley Eckstein. There will be minor spoilers.

Ahsoka by E.K. Johnston is a young adult novel spotlighting Ahsoka Tano of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. When Ahsoka was first introduced in The Clone Wars movie (2008), she was greeted with some level of derision by fans who thought her “Skyguy” and “Artooie” routine was a bit too cute for Star Wars. Fast forward eight years, and Ahsoka is one of the most beloved characters in Star Wars — ever. Quite an accomplishment! So, it was no surprise when the announcement of a full-length Ahsoka Tano novel was met with much praise and anticipation. Ahsoka has now been released — does it meet expectations? Yes. It absolutely does. Exceedingly.
