Slashfilm are reporting that Rosario Dawson will bring Ahsoka Tano to life in the second season of ‘The Mandalorian’ on Disney+. Dawson has been a fan-favourite for the role and has spoken openly about being interested to take it on in the past.
Up until this time the character of Ahsoka, the padawan of Anakin Skywalker, has only appeared in animated form and always been voiced by Ashley Eckstein. The character was created by Dave Filoni who has overseen all her appearances in ‘The Clone Wars’ and ‘Star Wars: Rebels’ and he is also heavily involved in ‘The Mandalorian’ having directed several episodes.
The way ‘The Mandalorian’ is shot would allow for this to be kept secret if it were true but at the moment there is no official statement on the casting.
