The casting team for ‘The Mandalorian’ hasn’t had to break their heads to choose the actress who will play Ahsoka Tano in the second season. How could it be otherwise, Rosario Dawson, who for years has reaffirmed her interest in being the flesh and bones of Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan, has successfully carried out her campaign and it will be one of the big claims of the second season of the original Disney + fiction, which will land on the platform in October.

Ahsoka in ‘Rebels’ and Rosario Dawson in ‘Briarpatch’

As Slash Film has advanced and Variety confirmed, Ahsoka will be seen in the new adventures of the Mandalorian, undertaking its first appearance in real action after being one of the pillars of the animated universe as the protagonist of ‘The Clone Wars’ and guest star of ‘Rebels’. The involvement of the character’s progenitor Dave Filoni in ‘The Mandalorian’ will be key to shaping a version of Ahsoka that satisfies fans, who have followed his exploits from the battlefield to rebel incursions against the Empire.

At the moment, information about this second season is scarce. His filming ended in early March, with Filoni repeating as director. On this occasion, that task will be shared with Jon Favreau, creator of the fiction, and Carl Weathers, the actor who plays Greef Carga. The name of the rest of the filmmakers is a mystery, but the first season had the commendable work of Deborah Chow, Rick Famuyiwa, Taika Waititi and Bryce Dallas Howard, so it is to be hoped that this high bar is not lowered.

Little by little

After its open premiere on Cuatro, which has attracted nearly two million viewers in prime time on March 20, ‘The Mandalorian’ completes its arrival in Spain through Disney +. However, When the platform is available in our country on March 24, we can only see the first two installments of galactic fiction, set between the sixth and the seventh episode of the film saga. The remaining six chapters will be released weekly, so you will have to be patient while we bask in the tenderness of Baby Yoda and the silences, which say it all, of the Mandalorian.
