Live from the Fan Stage at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, join Ryder Waldron, Mark Sutter, Becca Benjamin and Anne Convery as they discuss Ahsoka Tano! 

Ahsoka Tano has become a beloved Star Wars character as her story has spanned The Clone Wars, Rebels, the Ahsoka novel, comics, The Mandalorian, and the Ahsoka series. But why has she become such an inspirational fan favorite? Should she have walked away from the Jedi Order? And how did leaving the Jedi Order affect her future? We will also discuss our favorite Ahsoka moments, our favorite aspects of her character growth, and did she become the purest example of a Jedi only after leaving the Order?

**This is a live recording so the audio is not perfect.**
