Rumored: Ahsoka Tano Getting Her Own Star Wars Series on Disney+. Since the news spread of Ahsoka Tano’s appearance in The Mandalorian Season 2 fans have been buzzing to learn more about her role within the series.
Though Disney and Lucasfilm have yet to confirm any new casting choices for The Mandalorian, sources close to production have confirmed Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano, Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan Kryze, and Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett/Captain Rex, the character Sabine Wren from Star Wars: Rebels is also expected to appear in the series. The latest rumor has added Timothy Olyphant (Santa Clarita Diet) to the mix in a mysterious role for the series.
We are still on pins and needles for confirmation about the characters appearances in the mega popular Star Wars series, but it has led others to start questioning: “Is Ahsoka getting her own series on Disney+?”
Without official confirmation of the characters appearance in the new series it is a bit early to predict the path of Ahsoka, but with how Star Wars: Rebels ended there is more than enough content to be explored! It is also unclear if the rumor means we will get a live-action series or possibly another animated series following the Grey Jedi. We would LOVE for this rumor to be true and only time will tell if it holds any merit.
The Mandalorian Season 2 finished filming back in February 2020 and is currently being edited at home thanks to the dedicated VFX artists and editors at Lucasfilm. Disney also recently ordered a third season of the mega-popular Star Wars series, which will likely premiere on Disney+ in October 2021, similarly to how the first two seasons were released via the new streaming service.
Would you like to see an Ahsoka led series? What new characters are you excited to see in Season 2 of The Mandalorian? What adventures do you think are in store for season 2? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
