Re: Casting Ahsoka Tano

She should be a CGI puppet played by Ray Winstone.

Why not Ashley Eckstein? She's about the right size, and of course she sounds exactly like Ahsoka...
Bonus-- She's hot!

Yeah, Ashley. And we don't need to see her as a Padawan anymore anyway. That's already been covered. So, further adventures, please.

Kid Ahsoka, I have no idea, but adult Ahsoka looks a lot like Rosario Dawson. Who ironically enough is a huge Trekkie who wants to play a Klingon. Is a Togruta Jedi close enough?

Dawson has very large eyes, just give he blue contact lenses, maybe even do it via CGI.
i'll second this. it's eerie how much they resemble one another. that being said, if the casting would be for VII, she would be way to young unless Ahsoka's race ages slowly

Rosario Dawson is 33 years old. When she got the right to vote, Justin Bieber was four.

Re: Casting Ahsoka Tano

As tempting as it is, I don't think Ahsoka should ever go live.

She exists as a very popular cartoon character, and may even fit the 'Disney Princess' mould better than Leia. That's not something they're going to want to tamper with too much.

My guess is if you ever see a live action Ahsoka, your probably walking around a Disney theme park.

The Togruta's average life expectancy is 94 according to Wookieepedia, which is above real-world early-21st-century human life expectancy, but a bit below the life expectancy of Star Wars humans.

Ahsoka was born c. 36 BBY (i.e. before the events of the original movie), and Return of the Jedi takes place in 4 ABY. So if Episode VII is c. 30 years after ROTJ, then Ahsoka would be c. 70 at that time.

Which can always be retconned.

Hayden Panettiere. She has the looks, build and voice for it, imho.

Have there been any actors who have voiced a character in animation and then gone on to do play them in a live action production?
Hell, Ernie Hudson played Winston in the live-action Ghostbusters movies and lost out to Arsenio Hall to play him in the animated series.

Ok, Justin Beiber.
Sorry to disappoint but that particular picture of her on deviant art isn't canon unless there's another reason why her nickname is "Snips".
