THE MANDALORIAN: Rosario Dawson's Role As Ahsoka Tano Could Span Multiple STAR WARS TV Shows
This is very much a rumour for now, but a new report doing the rounds claims that Rosario Dawson may have signed a contract which will see her play Ahsoka Tano in more than just The Mandalorian season 2...
With Hollywood currently on lockdown due to COVID-19, the number of online rumours and scoops doing the rounds has greatly decreased. However, The Direct is now claiming that their "contributing insider Daniel Richtman" has learned that Rosario Dawson has signed a multi-show deal which would allow her to play Ahsoka Tano in more than just The Mandalorian's second season.
Before we go any further, though, it's important to take this with a pinch of salt.
For starters, we're talking about a newly launched website, and most importantly, Richtman does tend to be a little hit and miss every now and again. Plus, this definitely feels like another of those so-called "scoops" that, honestly, is based more on common sense than anything else!
We'll obviously have to wait and see, but we're not totally writing this one off as would make sense. Lucasfilm would be crazy not to lock Dawson in for more than just an appearance on The Mandalorian, and there have already been rumblings about her starring in a series of her own. The character is crazy popular, and one with a ton of potential.
The site notes that, "This is not a confirmation that Rosario Dawson's Ahsoka Tano will indeed appear in other Disney+ shows, rather, that Lucasfilm is potentially interested in having her character make future appearances in other shows, thus including this clause in the contract."
In other words, it's too soon to start getting excited about what this could all be leading to. However, you have to believe that Ahsoka has a bright future on Disney+ - assuming Dawson's take on the fan-favourite Jedi Knight is well-received by fans.
