Rosario Dawson is about to become one of the most integral characters in the entire Star Wars canon. We know that she will be joining the second season of The Mandalorian as fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano. We have also heard that Disney wants to give her a spinoff show on Disney+. It sounds like the Mouse House has big plans for the live-action version of Ahsoka Tano. And if a new rumor is true, that might even include the big screen.
We Got This Covered is reporting that Rosario Dawson is in early talks for a feature film focusing on the character of Ahsoka Tano. Nothing else of substance is attached to this new report, so as always, take this with a grain of salt. However, the popularity of Ahsoka Tano is unquestionable at this point, and it is worth assuming that Disney wants to capitalize on her strong fan following.
With Disney recently announcing that their focus will be on streaming content, it is definitely time to consider what kind of plans they might have for a star as recognizable as Rosario Dawson. The future of Star Wars movies seems to be put on hold as the Mouse House shifts the spotlight onto their Disney+ shows. Would this potential Ahsoka Tano movie be the first step towards transitioning the franchise back to the big screen? Or could this movie even be considered for Disney+? Anything is possible right now with such a vague rumor.
It is going to be very interesting once we get a full reveal of Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano in the second season of The Mandalorian. The show will offer us our first real look at the character and her life since the events of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. And exactly what plans the powers-that-be have in store for her will also likely be revealed. It is unclear at this point how sizable Ahsoka Tano’s role will be in the second season of The Mandalorian. Will she only be showing up for one or two episodes? How integral of a role will she be playing in that show’s story? Will we only see her appear at the end of the second season as a tease for the third season? As of now, nobody really knows!
If Rosario Dawson does end up getting her own feature film as Ahsoka Tano, we are in full support of the idea. The character has been beloved by fans for years now, and it would be great to see her get pushed into the mainstream in such a big way. Dawson is also a top-tier actor that deserves to headline a major genre franchise like Star Wars. If Disney is committed to giving her the limelight, we think that’s a fantastic decision.
All of this will become much clearer once we actually get to see Rosario Dawson in action as Ahsoka Tano in the second season of The Mandalorian. Here’s hoping the creative forces behind that show utilize her character well and she becomes just as popular with mainstream fans as she has with those who loved her in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
