Anakin Skywalker’s ex-apprentice returns!

According to a Slashfilm report, Rosario Dawson has been cast as a live-action Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian’s upcoming second season. Ahsoka Tano first appeared in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie, which led into its own series. The Togruta Jedi quickly became a fan favourite, and went on to play a big role in Star Wars: Rebels further down the timeline.

Dawson has shown interest in the character before. In response to a fan’s tweet all the way back in 2017 on whether she would ever appear in a movie as Ahsoka, she replied pretty enthusiastically! As far as fancasts go - she actually resembles the animated character quite a bit. 

Ahsoka appearing in The Mandalorian isn’t too surprising. Dave Filoni plays a big role in its production - and he co-created Ahsoka in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. He’s brought back elements from The Clone Wars in The Mandalorian already - namely, the Darksaber which appeared in its Season 1 finale. 

The Mandalorian Season 2 will premiere in October 2020
