THE MANDALORIAN Season 2 May Also Feature The Live-Action Debut Of Hera Syndulla
Following the news that Season 2 of The Mandalorian will see the live-action debuts of Ahsoka Tano and Bo-Katan Kryze, we're now hearing that Star Wars Rebels' Hera Syndulla may also make an appearance...
It looks like Disney+'s The Mandalorian could wind up introducing live-action versions of quite a few fan-favorite characters from the animated side of the galaxy far, far away.
Following the news that the second season of the Disney+ series will feature Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) and Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff), a new report indicates that they'll be joined by fellow Star Wars Rebels alum Hera Syndulla. The source isn't as reliable as the ones that broke those earlier stories, however, so we should definitely take this as a rumor until we hear more.
This report also claims to have confirmed that Sabine Wren will appear, and reckons there are plans in place for both a Boba Fett spinoff and an Ahsoka series set after the events of Rebels which would see the surviving members of The Ghost's crew (Hera, Sabine, Zeb and Chopper) continuing their search for Ezra Bridger. If true, that would also open the door for an appearance from Grand Admiral Thrawn!
Again, best not to put too much stock in any of this just yet, but it does make sense given some of things we already know about the upcoming season of The Mandalorian. It seems clear that the success of the first season has resulted in Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni and co. being given some major leeway to play in the Star Wars sandbox.
