Soleil "Ewok" Wheeler has signed an exclusive streaming deal with Twitch, marking her return to the platform after streaming on Mixer. Her Twitch stream was set to start at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

"I decided to return to Twitch because the platform has a vast network, and I had already established a community there before switching over to Mixer," Ewok told ESPN. "It's also the best platform for me to continue building my brand. I also miss Twitch Rivals and meeting people that have supported me since day one."

Ewok was among the top-level streamers who signed exclusively with Mixer in 2019, including Tyler "Ninja" Blevins and Michael "Shroud" Grzesiek. Since Mixer shut down in June, Shroud has returned to streaming exclusively on Twitch, while Ninja has yet to publicly announce his next streaming move.

Ewok looks back on her tenure with Mixer fondly.

"Mixer is a part of my journey that I will always cherish. I learned from the community there, and they helped me grow as a streamer," she said.

Ewok said she will feel nostalgic returning to Twitch and hopes to return even stronger.

The 14-year-old Fortnite pro is a member of FaZe Clan and recently signed with new talent management firm TalentX Gaming, a joint venture between ReKTGlobal, who own Rogue and the London Royal Ravens in the Call of Duty League, and TalentX Entertainment.
