‘The Mandalorian’: Rosario Dawson To Guest Star As Ashoka Tano

Mar 20, 2020

Despite Hollywood being on an almost complete shutdown due to the coronavirus, news is still trickling out, with the most recent bit being about a fan-favorite ‘Star Wars’ character.

‘Daredevil’ alum Rosario Dawson will be playing the live-action incarnation of ‘The Clone Wars’ character Ashoka Tano. The character has only been voiced by Ashley Eckstein in the animated series ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ and ‘Star Wars: Rebels’ up until this point. Dave Filoni, creator and writer of the two animated series and Ashoka herself, is one of the lead writers and directors for ‘The Mandalorian’, so it comes as no surprise he wants to be the one to transition her to live-action.

Dawson is currently starring in the USA series ‘Briarpatch’ and is known for her role as Claire Temple in the Marvel Netflix shows ‘Daredevil’, ‘Luke Cage’, and ‘The Defenders’.

‘The Mandalorian’ hails from Jon Favreau and stars Pedro Pascal. The show follows a bounty hunter as he protects an orphan child, dubbed by fans “Baby Yoda”, on their journey throughout the galaxy. Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, and Giancarlo Esposito also star. Season two will debut on Disney+ this October, as post production is currently underway with filming having finished on March 8, per cinematographer Baz Idoine.
