A now-deleted post from Disney Plus India’s Instagram account seemingly confirms that Rosario Dawson will play Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian season two.
After fans were thrilled with the premiere episode of The Mandalorian season two, a surprising Instagram post from Disney Plus revealed that Rosario Dawson will play Ahsoka Tano at some point across Din Djarin’s journey with Baby Yoda (or The Child, if you want to get technical). Dawson had previously cast some doubt on the casting by saying the news wasn’t confirmed, but thanks to a deleted post on Instagram, it seems she’s set to play the Force user alongside Pedro Pascal’s bounty hunter.
Ahsoka Tano isn’t the only animated Star Wars character supposedly appearing in The Mandalorian, as Rahul Kohli recently addressed the rumors that he’s playing Ezra Bridger. But the Disney Plus India account recently posted a graphic of Ahsoka Tano with a caption asking what Rosario Dawson will look like in the role, before also offering a debate on who Sasha Banks’ role The Mandalorian season two. Obviously, the original post was deleted, but not before eagle-eyed fans caught sight of it and shared it to Twitter. Take a look below.
