The Mandalorian Season 2 Casts its Ahsoka Tano with Rosario Dawson

Ahsoka Tano

Ahsoka Tano is coming to The Mandalorian. Today, /film broke the story with the news that Rosario Dawson will be bringing the popular character to the live-action Disney+ show The Mandalorian for its second season. Ahsoka Tano originally appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and then returned in Star Wars: Rebels. For these shows, Ashley Eckstein brought the character to life. The news is reported by /film to be verified by two sources at this point. Both Lucasfilm and Disney haven’t confirmed the news yet.

The news will most likely be met with a lot of positivity from fans. For years fans have been clambering for Rosario Dawson to take on this role. When asked about it on twitter, she responded “ummmm… yes please?! #AhsokaLives.” This got the fan community talking but nothing seemed to come of it as fan campaigns pushed for this casting.

Ahsoka Tano made her original appearance in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. She was Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan until a conflict with the Jedi led to her departure. She then became instrumental in helping pull together cells of resistance fighters into what would become the Rebellion. The last time she was seen on screen was in Star Wars: Rebels. As the series wrapped up she joined Sabine Wren, a Mandalorian, to go find Ezra Bridger. This ending seemed a set up for future adventures.

There have been several connections between the events during a season of Star Wars: Rebels that focused on Mandalorians and now The Mandalorian that have been revealed. The biggest one is the dark saber and that Sabine Wren once was the owner of it. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that Sabine Wren will be appearing in the second season of The Mandalorian as well. This could lead to both connections between the different Star Wars productions but also lead to new adventures and Disney+ shows.

During The Walt Disney Company shareholder meeting, Bob Iger eluded to the fact that the second season of The Mandalorian  would continue to expand the story and it could even be “infusing it with more characters and the possibility of taking those characters in their own direction in terms of series.”

It is very exciting to see Ahsoka Tano making her way into the live-action Star Wars universe. Currently, she can be seen in the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. What do you think of her showing up on the second season of The Mandalorian? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
