There was a lot of excitement in Star Wars fandom when it was announced that Rosario Dawson was cast as Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian Season 2. We’ve been waiting for this character to make her live-action debut for years and the fact that it’s happening is awesome!
It sounds like The Mandalorian might not be the only live-action Star Wars series we see the character appear in! According to ace entertainment scooper Daniel Richtman, Dawson’s contract to play Ahsoka Tano is a multi-show deal. So, we might actually see the character pop up in other shows! I imagine the possibilities could also include a solo series for the character, which is something that the fans would gladly welcome.
It’s explained that it’s “a unique type of contract seen most often with MCU actors and actresses who have signed onto other film and show properties in the past. This is not a confirmation that Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano will indeed appear in other Disney+ shows, rather, that Lucasfilm is potentially interested in having her character make future appearances in other shows, thus including this clause in the contract.”
If this is the case and we do see Tano in multiple Disney+ Star Wars shows, she will be a connecting factor in the universe. If she can appear in any of the upcoming shows, it means that any of the other characters could appear in each other’s shows as well. Lucasfilm could seem to be looking at establishing a connected universe with these shows. If this is something that they are actually doing, it could be lead to an epic payoff.
We’ll just have to wait and see! What do you think about all this? Would you like to see Ahsoka appear in the other Star Wars shows? Would you like to see her get a solo series?
