To celebrate Star Wars Day, aka May the 4th, Rosario Dawson shared a tweet about fan-favorite Star Wars Rebels and The Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano, a character that she has been pretty outspoken as of late about wanting to play in a live-action film.
The tweet in question was actually in response to a couple of previous tweets by fans, the first of which from user Brian Snook, which featured an image of Ahsoka along with a theory that she could become the new custodian of Mortis, a place outside of the universe that exists within the Force that was visited in the third season of the animated The Clone Wars series. Here’s the first tweet:

Next, another fan, by the name of Mat Hab, tagged Dawson in a response, asking for her thoughts on potentially playing that version of Ahsoka:

And finally, the actress herself responded, using the #MayTheFourthBeWithYou and #AhsokaLives hashtags:

In the Mortis arc of The Clone Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka visited Mortis and met the three beings that the Force flows through: the Son, representing the dark side, the Daughter, representing the light, and the Father, who is meant to maintain the balance in the Force. By the end of the arc, the three were defeated by the Jedi, so perhaps following her encounter with Darth Vader the last time we saw her in the Season 2 Finale of Rebel, Ahsoka could have become one of the custodians of Mortis, maybe even taking on the role the Father had by maintaining balance in the Force. Whichever way she may appear, I would just love to see Rosario Dawson play Ahsoka Tano.
Ahsoka Tano (voiced by Ashley Eckstein) has been confirmed to return in the fourth and final season of Star Wars Rebels, airing this fall on Disney XD. May the Fourth be with you, always.
