Earlier this year, there were several online reports that Rosario Dawson would be appearing as Ahsoka Tano and that Timothy Olyphant would be appearing in an unknown role in the sophomore season of “The Mandalorian.” Now, it seems there may be some truth to those rumors despite a direct confirmation from Disney and/or Lucasfilm.
The Disney+ Instagram in Denmark shared a video story confirming Dawson and Olyphant’s involvement in the series, however their roles were not confirmed.
Kessel Run Transmissions shared the story video which you can see below:
