More news is coming in from Star Wars Celebration Europe, and one of the highlights of the first day is the panel interview with Star Wars Clone Wars and Rebels Supervising Director Dave Filoni, together with actress Ashley Eckstein, who did the voice characterization for one of the most loved and admired icons of Star Wars Rebels, Ahsoka Tano.
Entitled as ‘Ahsoka’s Untold Tales’, the panel explored the back story of the heroine and what is in store for her after that cliffhanger ending of Season 2. Towards the end of the panel, Filoni can hardly contain his excitement when the question of whether Ahsoka lives was brought into the table. Fans were in a frenzy when the screen finally popped an unexpected surprise to everyone’s delight: Ahsoka now gets the Funko Pop! treatment with her own very vinyl bobble head figure. The Hot Topic exclusive is due to be released this Fall. Here’s a glam shot of the Ahsoka Funko Pop! figure together with her white, dual lightsabers as seen from Star Wars Rebels. Smuggler’s Bounty has also recently announced the good news over at their site.
