Rosario Dawson’s Debut in The Mandalorian
Ahsoka made an appearance in The Mandalorian show recently released. Played by Rosario Dawson, she had an integral role in the Chapter 13 episode and got fans extremely excited about the upcoming show focusing entirely on her adventures.
While we are sure of Rosario Dawson being our leading character, we don’t have too much information about the other supporting characters of the show. It has been confirmed, however, that the live-action actor for Anakin Skywalking, Hayden Christensen will be returning for this show. It is also rumored that characters of Ezra Bridger and Admiral Thrawn, as well as others from the animated Rebels series may also be returning for the Ahsoka series.
