Rosario Dawson Is Going To Star As Ahsoka In The Mandalorian Season 2
Breaking news has just come regarding Disney and Star Wars spinoff show The Mandalorian Season 2. News media reports that Rosario Dawson is going to debut in the show next season, and will star as long-time fan favourite Ahsoka Tano. Dawson will be playing the role of Anakin Skywalker’s Jedi padawan. A former-Jedi, Tano left the Order after she was wrongly accused of the Temple bombings. The news comes at an exceptionally brilliant time because Ahsoka will also make a return to the Star Wars animated show, The Clone Wars season 7 tonight. With reference to the timeline, the last time we saw her was in Star Wars: Rebels.
Rosario Dawson Brilliant For Ahsoka Tano
The news comes exclusively from Slash Film, reporting that Rosario Dawson is a confirmed casting as per their independent sources. Dave Filoni headed the creation of Ahsoka Tano in the animated form and is a writer/producer of The Mandalorian series. Starring Pedro Pascal, the show is remarkably famous among the Star Wars fans, offering a unique storyline for events away happening away from the main storyline.
Unfortunately, there are no statements coming from Lucasfilm or Dave Filoni about signing Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka. Perhaps she is starring as someone else? Perhaps this is all a rumour? Regardless, Dawson has been a fan-favourite for the role since 2017. A fan tweeted to ask her if she would want to star as the young former-Jedi, to which she answered “yes please?” You can take a look at it below:

For those who might not know, Ahsoka Tano (hopefully Rosario Dawson) was Anakin Skywalker’s young padawan. Sadly, she left the Jedi Order back in Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 5. This happened after the Jedi Council asked her to stand trial for Temple bombings. It was during this time when Ahsoka realized that the Jedi are not doing what they were always trained to do: become keepers of the peace. Although the trial cleared her of all charges and restored her status as a Jedi, she refused to return back to the Order. Leaving her former master Skywalker she went on a different path. And only making a short appearance during the events that led to Order 66. There, she made an escape with Captain Rex to avoid death, only reappearing in Star Wars: Rebels.
Do you guys think Dawson will play as a character who will return in The Mandalorian Season 2?
