Rosario Dawson Reportedly Cast as Ahsoka Tano in THE MANDALORIAN Season 2

In a time when we could all use some cool news, this is so very welcome. Especially for Star Wars fans.

According to SlashFilm, actress Rosario Dawson has been cast as fan-favorite, former Jedi padawan Ahsoka Tano in THE MANDALORIAN Season 2.

"We have exclusively learned that Rosario Dawson will appear in The Mandalorian season 2 and are excited to report that she will be playing a fan-favorite character previously only seen in the Star Wars animated productions. Dawson will be playing a live-action version of Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker’s Jedi padawan apprentice who appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels. This would be the character’s first appearance in live-action."

UPDATE: One of The Hollywood Reporter's writers is corroborating this report now, too.

Ahsoka potentially training Baby Yoda sounds absolutely wonderful.

THE MANDALORIAN Season 2 is set to premiere on Disney+ in October.
