A new rumor suggests that Rosario Dawson’s appearance as Ahsoka Tano in the upcoming season of The Mandalorian could lead to a solo series for the beloved character.
After a pretty heavy week that saw the delays of several major box office draws, Star Wars fans were excited to hear on Friday that Rosario Dawson has joined The Mandalorian as fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano. While many were pleased to hear the galaxy far, far away expanding even more, some were disappointed that the beloved Clone Wars character wouldn’t be getting her own solo Disney Plus series, especially with a skilled actress like Rosario Dawson at the helm.
It appears that Rosario Dawson’s appearance in The Mandalorian could serve as a backdoor pilot for an Ahsoka Tano series, according to Heat Vision. No further details were given other than this supposed Ahsoka Tano series with Rosario Dawson being a rumor. Fans have been clamouring for years to see more of Ahsoka Tano, especially on the live-action front, so this series should be a no-brainer for the content and story executives at Disney Plus.
Rosario Dawson’s appearance as Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian would be the character’s live-action debut, barring the voice cameo the Jedi had in the climax of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Ahsoka Tano first appeared in the animated film Star Wars: The Clone Wars and continued to star in the TV show of the same name. She later appeared in the critically-acclaimed Rebels series as well.

Here is the official synopsis for The Mandalorian:
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.

The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog, and Nick Nolte. The Star Wars series was written by Jon Favreau, who also serves as an executive producer alongside Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist is also on board as a co-executive producer.
Dave Filoni directed the first episode of The Mandalorian and additional episodes of the Star Wars series were helmed by Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard, Dope director Rick Famuyiwa, and Jessica Jones director Deborah Chow.
The Mandalorian season one is now available exclusively on Disney Plus. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for more information on Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano as we learn it.
