Rosario Dawson confirmed for The Mandalorian Season 2

October 4th, 2020 by Marc Comments

We reported during the week that the first look at Rosario Dawson may have been revealed from The Mandalorian season 2 where there has long been a rumour that she is set to place Ahsoka Tano for the first time in live-action (here).

Thanks to an Instagram post from Disney+ in Denmark (which we posted below) it seems we have confirmation that Dawson and also Timothy Olyphant are indeed in the series.

Dawson, as we said above, is expected to play ex-Jedi Ahsoka Tano, star of animated shows Clone Wars and Rebels, who we last saw with another Mandalorian, Sabine Wren, as the duo were setting off to find their Jedi friend Ezra Bridger who had vanished along with Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Olyphant is expected to play Cobb Vanth who appeared in Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath books – interesting thing about Vanth is that he may have – and wear – Boba Fett’s armour (here and here) in the show.

We’ve also learned that Temuerra Morrison will play legendary bounty hunter Fett in the series too (here).

The Mandalorian will return to Disney+ on October 30th.

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….
