When Ahsoka was first introduced 15 years ago in Star Wars: The Clone Wars many fans were not sure what to think about Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan. But over the years her popularity grew and with the releases of Star Wars: Rebels, Season 7 of The Clone Wars, and Tales of the Jedi; Ahsoka grew to be one of the most loved Star Wars characters of all time. Because of this Ahsoka got her own series on Disney+ and it was a hit with Lucasfilm and the Walt Disney Company announcing that the first episode hit 14 million views. You can check out their official announcement below.
