This article is about the Jedi youngling. You may be looking for other uses of the word.

Ashla was a female Togruta Jedi youngling who trained in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant in the waning years of the Jedi Order.


Ashla was a Jedi youngling during the waning years of the Jedi Order. Along with many of her fellow younglings, she received instruction from Jedi Master Yoda. During a session on lightsaber instruction, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi visited Ashla's class to talk with Yoda about the planet Kamino, a planet he was investigating that was missing from the Jedi Archives. One of Ashla's peers correctly guessed that someone had erased the files, explaining Kamino's absence. Kenobi later tracked Kamino down and found that a clone army had been created for the Galactic Republic,[2] which the Jedi ultimately led during the ensuing Clone Wars.[3]

Behind the scenes

Ashla appeared in the 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones.[2] Her name was given in the Star Wars Legends reference book The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia,[4] and it was later canonized in the official Databank.[5] Leland Chee of Lucasfilm, addressing fan speculation, confirmed in January 2009 that Ashla and Ahsoka Tano of Star Wars: The Clone Wars were not the same character because their ages did not match up.[6]
