Is there a disturbance in The Force? Ever since Rosario Dawson was cast as Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian season 2, the Star Wars fandom has been on fire.

It seems there is backlash against the casting! Many fans feel the character’s voice actress Ashely Eckstein should have been the live action Ahsoka. Eckstein gave a few thoughts on the topic on her official Instagram page.

She states “The truth is, I am not involved in The Mandalorian. I cannot answer questions on something I have not been a part of…it has been my dream for 14 years to play Ahsoka Tano in all forms. I will continue to be grateful for opportunities to help create stories for Ahsoka Tano and I am alway happy to see her legacy continue.”

The actress took a very humble approach at all of the fall out. She continues to thank the fans for all their kind words through the entire process. She also reminds everyone that, “The final decisions for Ahsoka are not mine to make”.

Eckstein voices Ahsoka Tano in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which is currently airing on Disney Plus! Check out her Instagram post below.
