Ashley Eckstein Reveals the Star Wars Character She’d Want Ahsoka to Meet

Ahsoka Tano might have been considered a tad bit noisy and annoying when she first appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, however, as the series went on, the former Padawan of Anakin Skywalker became a Star Wars fan favorite.

Star Wars fans are now expecting to see Ahsoka make her way to Star Wars: The Mandalorian. Last week, word came out saying that Marvel Netflix star Rosario Dawson is set to play the role in the second season of the series. While everyone's eager to see Ahsoka meet Baby Yoda, Ahsoka voice actress Ashley Eckstein wishes that Snips could meet another set of Star Wars favorites.

Speaking in an interview with Bleeding Cool to talk about her upcoming Little Golden Book called I Am A Padawan, Eckstein got to open up about everything behind Ahsoka. Not only did the actress open up about how poorly she did when she auditioned for the role, but she also got to talk about characters she'd love to see Ahsoka with.

Emphasizing that her answers stem from her role as a Star Wars fan and that she doesn't really know what's going to happen to Ahsoka beyond The Clone Wars, Eckstein reveals how she'd love for Ahsoka to get to meet the twins Luke (Mark Hamill) and Leia (Carrie Fisher).

"Oh, that's a great question. Oh, gosh. You know, no one's asked me that question. This is purely me as a fan. I think I need to stress this. This is purely me as a fan, because sometimes if it comes from me, people think that I know things. I don't know things. I don't. Truly, beyond these episodes of The Clone Wars, I don't know things," the voice actress said. "But I've always wondered if Ahsoka ever gets to talk to Luke (Mark Hamill) or Leia (Carrie Fisher). I've always wondered that. And so I don't know. But I do wonder if that ever happened."

Seeing how Lucasfilm's moved on from the Skywalker saga with the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, we can't really imagine Ahsoka meeting with Luke or Leia on the big screen. It is possible though if Lucasfilm creates a new Star Wars series, perhaps one centered on Ahsoka herself. Let's wait and see.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 7 is currently streaming on Disney+.
