First look at Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian season 2

September 28th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Oh boy… so, it looks like we have our first official look at Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano from The Mandalorian season 2… by accident.

Not for the first time, it seems a piece of merchandise has revealed a look at something that we weren’t supposed to see yet, and in this case it’s the first appearance of this iconic Star Wars character in live action.

The image above is from the box of a new Ashoka Tano Force Fx Lightsaber as seen at Hasbro Pulsecon at the weekend.

And there’s no denying that the actress looks spot on in the role and has just managed to get us even more excited for season two of the Star Wars spinoff series… because we weren’t excited enough as it was!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
