Another year, another television season. It certainly has been an interesting one this year. However, now it is time to cast our thoughts to the future, as trailers for next season’s shows are making their way to the air.

One of the biggest announcements has been in relation to Star Wars: Rebels. For fans of The Clone Wars TV Series, it has been announced that Ahsoka Tano will be returning to the small screen as a regular on Rebels. However, as many are aware, Rebels takes place many years after The Clone Wars, so the Ahsoka we see here is much older and wiser.

Recently a video has been released (below), which features the executive producer, Dave Filoni, and Ahsoka’s voice actress, Ashley Eckstein, discussing the history of the character and hinting to what is in store.

The thing that surprises me about this video is the fan base that Ahsoka has established and what she represents to the expanded universe of Star Wars. With the exception of Leia and Padme, she is arguably one of the most prevalent female characters, within the Star Wars Universe.

Star Wars: Rebels’ second season is scheduled to commence on the 20th of June 2015. Here’s hoping the return of Ahsoka will live up to everyone’s expectations. To all fans waiting in anticipation, May the Force be with you.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
