1. Ahsoka Tano
Let’s start with a soft-toss.
Ahsoka Tano is one of the obvious characters likely to come from the animated Star Wars world to the live-action world, though technically her voice is already heard in The Rise of Skywalker.
This will likely be the first time we see Ahsoka in live-action, and while nothing has been directly confirmed by Star Wars or Lucasfilm (not in the US, at least), the leaks are too difficult to ignore at this point.
It would not be surprising to see Ahsoka in some of the next promotional material for season two.
It appears as though actress Rosario Dawson — the one who would presumably play Ahsoka Tano — has been confirmed by a Disney+ Instagram story out of Denmark.
Take it for what you will, but it does appear pretty obvious that Ahsoka will have a role in season two of The Mandalorian, and it has always made sense.
Ahsoka is one of the only “Jedi” remaining in the galaxy at this point in the story, along with obviously Luke Skywalker and another character we will talk about in a little bit.
Ahsoka would have unique knowledge about The Child’s species since she obviously spent the majority of her childhood around Yoda himself. She is also uniquely qualified to explain The Child’s unique force sensitivity to those who clearly don’t understand it.
Ahsoka also has a very long history with Mandalorians dating back to the Clone Wars, but certainly not limited to that.
Ahsoka’s inclusion in season two is a foregone conclusion at this point. It wouldn’t be surprising for her to either become an integral part of the story or get her own show as a result of this, either.
For what it’s worth, Rosario Dawson is already credited for the Ahsoka Role on IMDb…
