Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker featured a number of Jedi voices during the final battle between Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid), and to the surprise of many, the Jedi voice sequence included Ahsoka Tano.

Ahsoka might have irritated fans with her snippy attitude during the first few episodes of The Clone Wars, however, in time, the former padawan of Anakin Skywalker became a fan-favorite character that fans would look for in other Star Wars shows like Star Wars Rebels.


Snips' voice work in The Rise of Skywalker was the very first time that Ahsoka had a cameo in a Star Wars film and for voice actress Ashely Eckstein, the experience was nothing but exhilarating.

Speaking in an interview with Comic Book Resources, Ahsoka Tano voice actress Ashley Eckstein opens up about her very first voice cameo in Lucasfilm's Star Wars film franchise.

"Yeah, talk about mind-blowing, that was one of the top moments of my career, for sure," the actress told the entertainment news outlet.

According to Eckstein, she was offered the opportunity to voice Ahsoka in Episode IX by Matthew Wood, the voice of General Grievous and a sound engineer at Skywalker Sound.

"And Matthew Wood reached out to me one day and, from what I've been told, he had this idea of bringing the voices of past Jedi to Rey and he wanted Ahsoka to be included, which I thought was just so incredible," Eckstein said.

It's incredible to find Ahsoka's voice in the Jedi voice scene in The Rise of Skywalker. There have been reports saying that Ahsoka may very well appear in Star Wars: The Mandalorian, though Lucasfilm has yet to confirm that it's cast Marvel Netflix star Rosario Dawson for the role.

Let's wait and see.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is available on Digital HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
