Amy: Ahsoka's New Look


Star Wars Insider #121 brings us Ahsoka's new look.  In case anyone was doubting whether this image is real, this is directly from StarWars.com - "(and sharp-eyed readers might sneak a peek of Ahsoka's new look debuting later this season!)."

I've seen a lot of people complaining about one feature.  Gasp, horrors - she has cleavage!  How could a 14 year old have cleavage?  First of all, I don't think she's still 14 in this image.  Look at her head-tails.  They are longer and more filled out.  I think she's grown at least a year older.  And also?  There's the whole puberty thing.  With human girls, it can start very young.  Who knows what happens with Togruta females?  Okay, that's a stretch but hopefully you see my point.

I guess maybe people aren't happy about seeing her grow up; this brings us closer to her mysterious fate.  But I sincerely hope everyone realizes that the fact that she has cleavage does not make her any less of a strong female or kick butt Jedi.

  1. People may be complaining about her cleavage, but at least she appears to be fully clothed as opposed to her current lack of skin coverings.

  2. I hope they made her taller, she hasn't grown very much in the series I would like to see her gain some actual height when compared to others around her.

  3. Ashoka is one of the only reason I watch clone wars other than it being star wars. She just wonderful character. Once they finish this show I wouldn't mind reading a book or comics about her.

  4. I think they're finally realizing they have to appeal more to older fans and not just kids. I'm glad she's growing up and it certainly is going to be interesting to see what happens to her at the end of the Clone Wars (just in general and not necessarily over the show)

  6. I have no problem with the new look. She is getting older, so it does make sense to make her look that way. I'm sure she will still be an awesome roll model for girls-young and younger!

  7. I like the new look! It's nice to see a female character grow up gradually. And let's face it, how many of us couldn't wait to start wearing more "adult-like" clothing once we hit the high schoolish age? At least I know I did..

  8. WHAT? Cleavage you say? The horror! Oh my gosh what a stupid thing to be upset about. She's at least 15 if not 16, she's gonna have cleavage. Anybody that doesn't want their kids to see the tiny bit of cleavage that Ahsoka is showing had better keep their kids from watching any tv at all, and blindfold them when they leave the house.
    Puberty doesn't only develop a teenage girls breasts, it also makes her crazy in the head at times. Hormones in teenagers that don't have Force powers are bad enough. Imagine the damage you could have done or how easily you could have slipped to the dark side when you were 15, if you had control of the Force!

  10. Well, she seems to be wearing more clothing than usual, so that's nice. I assume Obi-Wan and Anakin will still be wearing variants on robes and armor rather than angling to be eye candy, but this is Star Wars, and Ahsoka is female.

    (I love Star Wars, but when the franchise's founding heroine--Leia--ended her three-movie run with a lauded, legendary stint as a sex slave, my feminist side died a little bit.)

  11. Looks cool, hopefully it'll be a proper new look going forward and not just a one off disguise or something.
