Fans Are Shaking Their Heads Over This Lightsaber Mistake

To celebrate the upcoming Ahsoka series, shopDisney has released an incredible Ahsoka Tano Lightsaber toy set. The description for this item says;

“Now you can imagine yourself as the Force-sensitive Togruta Ahsoka Tano when wielding this pair of Lightsabers. Featuring her distinctive white blades, this set includes detachable hilts which can be attached to your belt with the included clips. Attach the hilts to activate the light-up blades, motion-sensor sounds, plus battle-clash rumble and dueling Lightsaber effects that bring the eternal struggle to life!”

While this toy sounds incredibly awesome, fans were left shaking their heads due to a major error on the website. Reddit user and Star Wars fan  u/CarolDaversFangurl pointed out that Disney’s original posting of the toy misspelled Ahsoka’s name. Instead, the listing was for Ashoka Tano. 

Fans sounded off under the Reddit post, commiserating on how lame this was of Disney. The caption reads;

“Anyone looking forward to watching “Ashoka”? Going to be hard to flog merch if the actual Disney Store looks like a cheap knockoff website.”

You would think that Disney would at least try to spell her name correctly

Now, the Lightsaber has been fixed and is up on the website as normal. What a silly mistake on Disney’s end!
