The character of Ahsoka Tano first appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels, and this would mark the character’s first live-action appearance.
“We have confirmed this Dawson casting with two independent sources. We reached out to Lucasfilm to request a statement from the company or Dave Filoni, but received no response. We have been chasing this scoop for a month now and have reached out to Rosario’s reps, who also didn’t respond,” they reported.
Years ago, Rosario agreed that she’d love to play the character in a response to a fan on Twitter. Now, it appears to be a fan casting dream come true!
