Season 2 of The Mandalorian launches in October and the Star Wars spinoff series has some exciting new casting details. According to Slashfilm.com, Rosario Dawson will join the cast of the sophomore season as Ahsoka Tano, which is the first Clone Wars and Rebels character to appear in live-action.
Dawson has many film credits to her name including: Rent, Eagle Eye, and Clerks II.
In case you aren’t familiar with the character, Ahsoka debuted in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The animated film then launched a TV series that ran for six seasons on Cartoon Network. And the seventh and final season just debuted on Disney+. Ashley Eckstein provides the voice of Ahsoka who is the former Jedi Padawan of Anakin Skywalker. Her master’s turn to the Dark Side set off an equally complex journey for the character that turned her into a Star Wars icon favorite.
Season two of The Mandalorian just wrapped filming earlier this month. Little information has been provided about season 2, but we do know it is set to return to Disney+ in October 2020. Jon Favreau also returns as executive producer/writer for the second season.
