‘The Mandalorian’ Introduces Surprise ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Hero

'The Mandalorian' is leaning into a storyline set up by 'The Clone Wars' and 'Rebels'.

One of the fan-favorite characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels jumped over to live-action in the latest episode of The Mandalorian.

WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THE MANDALORIAN SEASON 2.

The Mandalorian chapter 11 saw Din Djarin and Baby Yoda travel to the oceanic planet alongside the Frog Lady who audiences were introduced to in the previous episode when the series brought a fan-favorite character from The Clone Wars into live-action. After a brief introduction to the planet, Katee Sackhoff reprises her role from the animated series as Bo-Katan of House Kryze. And she enters the series in typical Star Wars fashion, in the middle of a battle.

The episode saw Katee Sackhoff‘s Bo-Katan and two other Mandalorians (one of whom was played by WWE’s Sasha Banks) save Din Djarin from Quarren pirates, while Banks’ character rescued Baby Yoda from the jaws of a vicious sea monster. As well as giving Sackhoff’s character her accurate look from The Clone Wars and Rebels, the episode also handily explained why Bo-Katan and Clan Kryze can remove their helmets, explaining that Din Djarin’s group were religious zealots. Audiences were also teased with Bo-Katan’s war against the Empire and her desire to retrieve the Darksaber from Moff Gideon as well as an Ahsoka Tano name-drop. Take a look at The Clone Wars character in The Mandalorian season two below.
