Rosario Dawson (Daredevil, Sin City) has reportedly been cast as Ahsoka Tano in season 2 of The Mandalorian.

This comes via /Film, who claim to have confirmed Dawson's casting with "two independent sources," but were unable to verify with Lucasfilm or Dave Filoni. Because of this, we can't take the news as a certainty just yet. 

This would be a dream casting for many fans, not to mention Dawson herself. The actress has campaigned to play the character several times in the past, and her social media posts have clearly come to the attention of the right people.

Ahsoka was introduced in The Clone Wars animated series as Anakin Skywalker's Jedi apprentice, before returning as a major supporting player in Star Wars Rebels. Fans have been clamoring for a live-action take on the character for many years, and it looks like we're finally going to see her when The Mandalorian returns to Disney+.

How Tano will be integrated into the plot remains to be seen, but there's a decent chance it'll have something to do with the Darksaber we saw Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) wield in the Season 1 finale. That blade was the property of Sabine Wren in Rebels, and in the series finale of that show Aksoka joined forces with Wren to track down Ezra Bridger. Sabine also happens to be a Mandalorian!

All we can so is speculate for now, but be sure to share your own theories in the comments, and let us know what you think of Dawson's casting.

UPDATE: Looks like we have trade confirmation.

YAAAAS BABY, if true...that's a good casting! and also could she be the jedi Mando is taking the Child with?

Great actress
Armageddon26 - 3/20/2020, 10:29 AM
Great actress and I’m sure she’ll do well, but I’m probably in the minority disappointed they didn’t just cast Ashoka’s voice actress.
Either way, excited to see her in live action if this is true

I've been waiting for this moment for so long. Mandalorian really is the best thing to happen to live action Star Wars in a while.

@Doomsday8888 - I am dreading the fake April Fools articles we will get while in the midst of a pandemic, it'll be a true shit show. I might just sleep the whole day!
PicolasCage - 3/20/2020, 10:30 AM
Wow... that’s pretty perfect casting honestly.

Ashley Eckstein better voice dub this.
Spidey91 - 3/20/2020, 10:36 AM
@antman8o8 - sadly, I don't think they're gonna cast Dawson just to dub over her.
not to mention, this is very much an older Ahsoka, so she wouldn't probably have that same youthful voice from Clone Wars or Rebels.
Spidey91 - 3/20/2020, 10:35 AM
a live-action Ahsoka, that's huge. and also, probably a backdoor pilot to test the waters of a possible spin-off.

Didnt they wrap filming??
gymbeau2000 - 3/20/2020, 12:28 PM
@KillerOfSaints - Yeah... but that doesn't mean she didn't already do her scenes and everything.
Armageddon26 - 3/20/2020, 1:20 PM
@KillerOfSaints - The guy that broke the news said he’s been working on the scoop for months, so I assume she filmed her stuff awhile ago
L0RDbuckethead - 3/20/2020, 5:19 PM
@KillerOfSaints - I heard that most of her filming will be handled in re-shoots, which haven't happened yet, and can't due to the coronavirus putting Hollywood on a hiatus.
