THE MANDALORIAN Season 2 Reportedly Casts Rosario Dawson As Ahsoka Tano!

Casting developments have been few and far between thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, but we have some huge news here, as Rosario Dawson will reportedly play Ahsoka Tano in season 2 of The Mandalorian!

Rosario Dawson (Daredevil, Sin City) has reportedly been cast as Ahsoka Tano in season 2 of The Mandalorian.

This comes via /Film, who claim to have confirmed Dawson's casting with "two independent sources," but were unable to verify with Lucasfilm or Dave Filoni. Because of this, we can't take the news as a certainty just yet. 

This would be a dream casting for many fans, not to mention Dawson herself. The actress has campaigned to play the character several times in the past, and her social media posts have clearly come to the attention of the right people.

Ahsoka was introduced in The Clone Wars animated series as Anakin Skywalker's Jedi apprentice, before returning as a major supporting player in Star Wars Rebels. Fans have been clamoring for a live-action take on the character for many years, and it looks like we're finally going to see her when The Mandalorian returns to Disney+.

How Tano will be integrated into the plot remains to be seen, but there's a decent chance it'll have something to do with the Darksaber we saw Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) wield in the Season 1 finale. That blade was the property of Sabine Wren in Rebels, and in the series finale of that show Aksoka joined forces with Wren to track down Ezra Bridger. Sabine also happens to be a Mandalorian!

All we can so is speculate for now, but be sure to share your own theories in the comments, and let us know what you think of Dawson's casting.

UPDATE: Looks like we have trade confirmation.
