Star Wars: The Clone Wars creator Dave Filoni commented on the rumors of Ahsoka Tano appearing in The Mandalorian.
In 2008, Star Wars: The Clone Wars introduced fans to Jedi apprentice Ahsoka Tano and the fan-favorite character has played a key role in the animated series of the same name ever since. For years, fans have been clamoring to see Ahsoka Tano appear in a live-action Star Wars project and a report indicated their wish will come true when Rosario Dawson portrays the character in the second season of The Mandalorian.
Of course, Lucasfilm and Disney have not officially announced the inclusion of Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian season 2 and even Rosario Dawson has played coy when it comes to the rumors. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Star Wars: The Clone Wars creator and The Mandalorian executive producer Dave Filoni addressed the rumors by crediting everyone involved with Ahsoka Tano for making her so popular and simply said, “who knows” when commenting on her future:
“All those rumors! Over the years people have always asked me about that character and potential live-action possibilities. It’s a real credit to the animation team and everybody that’s been involved with her over the years to make a character that fans say, “Hey, that would be great. We would want to see that.” And the debates that surround that. When we started in 2008 giving Anakin Skywalker a young Padawan wasn’t at top of mind for a lot of people. It seemed a bit out of left field and risky. George always knew that it would work if we did it the right way. The great thing about the character is she’s proved herself and earned her place among the Star Wars leads out there. So whatever the future holds, who knows? But for now, we’ll get to see this ending of Clone Wars and see how that goes.”
