It's not often we get to speak with Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker's Padawan apprentice, but Star Wars Celebration is one of the few places on Earth that grants you such an opportunity. As such, last weekend in Orlando, we caught up with Ashley Eckstein -- who gives voice to Tano in all her animated splendor, to find out about the heroine's next great adventure, Forces of Destiny. Of course, we also had to snuff out what Eckstein knows about Tano's fate in the final season of Star Wars Rebels, which ended on quite the cliffhanger.

From Disney's announcement last week, we know enough about Forces of Destiny to know that we're excited about the new initiative, which kicks off with a series of animated shorts that dive more deeply into some of our favorite heroine's backstories. Eckstein explains that Tano's story will take place during the Clone Wars, and that she'll be reunited with Padmé Amidala, among other interesting tidbits...

After finding out such juicy details about Forces of Destiny, we figured we'd press our luck and ask the question that everyone wants to know after last season's Rebels finale: does Ahsoka live? Well, it's tricky, but Eckstein does assure us that we'll see Tano again somehow...

What do you think, are you excited about Ahsoka's past and future?
