“Girls can be Jedi too.”
That might be one of the best things Ashley Eckstein, voice of Ahsoka Tano (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and Mia the bluebird (Sofia the First) said as she addressed several hundred influencers at Disney Social Media Moms Celebration earlier this month.
Well, if you don’t count, “Purses are out. But X-Wing helmets are in.”
That was pretty good too, considering she’s also the founder of Her Universe, home to a sci-fi-inspired line of clothing designed by Eckstein herself, in addition to being a safe space where fangirls can get their geeek on.
Her newest styles will debut at Star Wars Weekends through June 9, 2013, and yes, some have honey buns built right in.
No Jedi mind trick. See?
