As things start to ramp up for Star Wars on Disney+, the opportunity for well known characters to make appearances in the new shows grows. Ahsoka Tano, one of the most popular characters from the animated Star Wars series, has been widely reported to be making her live-action debut in the second season of The Mandalorian, played by Rosario Dawson.
We reported exclusively that Dawson had signed a multi-show deal, and a recent rumor suggests the character will be getting her own series of some kind. Given the nature of Dawson's contract, Ahsoka could show up anywhere within reason, and a new rumor suggests she may be appearing in a crazy old wizard's story in the near future...
An exclusive report from The Illuminerdi claims that Ahsoka Tano will appear in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series for Disney+. Details on the role were not specified, but the source states that the live-action Tano will again be played by Rosario Dawson, who is reportedly negotiating a deal with Lucasfilm to appear in the series.
WHAT THIS MEANS
The possibilities for an appearance by Ahsoka in the Obi-Wan series are pretty limited, as she clearly never found her old friend during his solidarity on Tatooine. It was rumored recently that Hayden Christensen would be in the series, reprising his role of Anakin Skywalker, so there's a fair chance she could show up in some sort of dream or flashback sequence alongside her master. It's best to take this rumor with a grain of salt, but a limited cameo for the former Padawan could go a long in way in showing the guilt and loss Obi-Wan is feeling.
