Rosario Dawson Joins The Mandalorian Season 2 As Ahsoka Tano

Slash Film has brought word that the second season of Disney+’s acclaimed Star Wars spinoff The Mandalorian is making a huge creative decision to cast Rosario Dawson (Zombieland: Double Tap) to star as a live-action version of fan-favorite Rebels and Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano!

Tano made her first appearance in Star Wars lore in the 2008 Clone Wars film that led into the hit TV series, which was revived for its last season that is currently airing on Disney+, and has since spun off into other series such as Rebels as well as video games and comics. She was originally the padawan to Anakin Skywalker and was not well-received by fans of the franchise, but as her character grew and developed over the years, she quickly became one of the highest-regarded characters in the entire franchise.

Fans can expect to see the character in the upcoming second season of the hit series which is set to premiere in October.

After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

Pedro Pascal (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) stars as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy and is joined by Gina Carano (Deadpool) who plays Cara Dune, a former Rebel Shock Trooper, having trouble re-integrating herself into society.; and Carl Weathers as Greef, a man who heads a guild of bounty hunters that hires The Mandalorian for a specific job.

The series also stars Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Carl Weathers (Predator), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man) and Nick Nolte (Affliction).

Jon Favreau serves as executive producer and showrunner for the series, Directors for the first season included Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), who helm the first episode, plus Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates) and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok), who have also provided the voice for bounty hunter IG-88 in the series.

The Mandalorian is executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer.

Mondo Announces “The Bounty” Timed Edition Giclee Print By Rory Kurtz

Thank the Ancients for Jon Favreau. Not only is he one of the key figures responsible for launching the MCU and the filmmaker that gifted us with one of the best modern Christmas classics, but he is a bonafide Star Wars master and one of the primary forces behind the excellent series: The Mandalorian. 

Set sometime between the fall of the Empire and the rise of the First Order, the show follows a lone warrior and bounty hunter as he navigates the outer reaches of an all too familiar galaxy. The show proudly wears its influences on its armor – from Leone’s Westerns to Samurai epics – and we fell in love with every gritty detail from week to week. From Ludwig Göransson’s incredible score to Pedro Pascal’s stoic performance as the titular Mandalorian, everything just sort of clicked in the best way. But there was one character who simply transcended it all: The Child. 

Together with Acme Archives, Mondo has teamed up with Rory Kurtz on a new poster for this instantly iconic new character to Star Wars lore. Titled “The Bounty,” Rory has beautifully brought life to one of The Mandalorian’s most captivating new characters, and will be available as a Timed Edition starting Friday, February 21 at 11AM CT and running through Monday, February 24 until 11:59PM CT. In addition to the timed edition release, Mondo will also offer a limited edition 5″x7″ graphite variant of Rory’s artwork. 

From Rory:

“I can’t say exactly when my feelings toward The Child turned from hesitant curiosity, to full on fan obsession. I had started this small original drawing for the sheer fun of it, just two or three episodes into The Mandalorian, and before even finishing it, I was just as ecstatic for The Child as everyone else seemed to be. Something about the child’s original trilogy design, and live real world puppeteering just brings so much more to the character than another forgettable CGI creation. That, and the certain mysterious understanding in it’s giant glassy eyes. The entire series is such a great addition to Star Wars canon, and season two can’t come soon enough.”
