Star Wars Universe Podcast episode 213

Ahsoka: The Novel

Before she got her own TV show, even before her defining experiences in Clone Wars Season 7, Ahsoka Tano got her own book—the first of the new Disney canon. Author E.K. Johnston tells the story of Ahsoka’s first years after Order 66, and Erin McGowan joins me to dive into the book and what it means for Ahsoka and the wider Star Wars world.

Erin grew up on the prequels and Clone Wars and has a lot to say about all things Star Wars-related! She also cosplays as her all-time favorite character: Ahsoka! Learning to build a cosplay has brought so much joy to her life and she does all she can to share that with others.

You can find updates on what Erin is up to on Instagram and TikTok, both @ladytanocreates.

A millennial, Gen Z'er, and Gen X'er walk into a cantina...

Each of us came into Star Wars in our own way, at our own time, and there is so much we can learn from each other when those differences fuel conversation, not conflict. Join Erin, Matthew, and Alex as we share our love for the galaxy far, far away on the Star Wars Generations Podcast!
