ver since the rumors kicked off in March that Rosario Dawson would be playing a live-action version of certain beloved animated Star Wars character, fans have been dying to know when they’d see her take on The Clone Wars hero. The Mandalorian viewers had new reason to hope a few weeks back when Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) told Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) that he should seek out a Force user named Ahsoka Tano who might help him with his very special babysitting gig. This beloved character may be new to fans of live-action Star Wars, but lovers of the animated series like The Clone Wars and Rebels know her well. Now is the perfect time to brush up on your Ahsoka Tano lore and consider what her re-appearance might mean for the future of The Mandalorian and the possible return of Admiral Thrawn, Ezra Bridger, and more.
Before her arrival on The Mandalorian Thursday, Ahsoka Tano had never appeared in a live-action Star Wars property.
