Following the Season 2 premiere, now Apple TV confirms Rosario Dawson will be a part of The Mandalorian, previously said to be Ahsoka Tano.
Apple sent out a promo e-mail to its subscribers for The Mandalorian Season 2 with mention of Rosario Dawson.
“Mando and The Child embark on new action-packed adventures,” states the e-mail. “The show that gave us Baby Yoda returns for another season of thrilling tales that add Western flavor to the Star Wars universe. When not facing fresh villains and appearing alongside guest stars like Rosario Dawson and Timothy Olyphant, bounty hunter Din Djarin strives to learn more about the little green one he’s protecting.”
As we now know, Timothy Olyphant appeared in The Mandalorian Season 2 premiere as The Marshal, and while Disney has yet to confirm Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano (for some reason) it seems a given the actress is in the series.

Rosario Dawson teased as Ahsoka Tano for The Mandalorian Season 2
Prior to the Season 2 premiere, a Disney Plus Instagram account out of India teased Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano, and when Hasbro released an Ahsoka Tano lightsaber, the packaging art looks heavily inspired by the likeness of Dawson (see below).
It’s also known that Mando is attempting to locate the Jedi to find Baby Yoda’s origins, so it’s thought that the Jedi that Mando finds might be Ahsoka Tano.
To boot, the end of the Season 2 premiere might have revealed Captain Rex from The Clone Wars animated series.
Leaks have also offered Ahsoka Tano may debut in an episode titled “The Sorceress.”
It would have been cool if, similar to Baby Yoda, they were able to keep Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano a secret for The Mandalorian Season 2, but the cat seems to be out of the bag this time.
The Mandalorian Season 2 airs with new episodes on Fridays on Disney Plus starring Pedro Pascal.
