Yep she is a great fit. And that character will be stellar in interacting with baby Yoda. Makes me wonder if they are going to just say fuck it and make Gus Freeman a Force user on top of having the Dark Saber.. I got to admit Ashoka was the furthest character from my mind after seeing that thing pop up. I would have thought itíd be Sabine if anyone.

That is such good news... I just hope she's got the voice as well as the looks!

As if the Mandalorian couldn't get any better... they just added my favourite SW character.
So that's the story. And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.

Really hoping it leads to her own show. This is still Mando so Iím not expecting much of her. Hell im doubting we even see her till last few moments or last Ep in general of S2.

I don't know if I've ever been this existed about a casting before. Honestly, Ahsoka is my second fave Star Wars character of all time after Obi-Wan...so getting to see her in live action is going to be a treat. I DO hope we see her dual white lightsabers in action...I expect the darksaber showing up (an item she's seen more than once before) is a part of that.

If you only have 2 eps then your getting fucked imo.

No way they should be pulling 6 other eps on a project that was finished months ago.

It kinda takes the piss. Wait 4 months... then they stagger the release. Probably so the free trial doesn't cover it.

That said, I liked the staggered episodes, and having to wait for each Thursday for another fix. The first two released a day apart, then the rest once a week. It gave me time to rewatch each one while I was waiting - and believe me it's worth waiting for.

I'm still glad I watched them all when it hit the US though.

So take this with a grain of salt, but some bit player on MANDO S2 let slip a nugget of casting on a livestream that he was not supposed to....

Wanna know who is going to be in S2 alongside Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka?

take a wild stab....

Spoiler


I mean, it makes sense and I'd have already asked for it...but man that is some EXCELLENT news.

recalling that

So I've finally got around to finishing this. I loved it - the action, the music, the cinematography, the baby Yoda, all just incredible but I have a couple of questions...

Was Boba Fett a Mandalorian?
Everyone seems to have heard of Mandalorians but they've never been mentioned ever before - I get that this because they have kind of retconned it or something but how come they're so well known? Looking forward to finding out more of the history/lore of them etc.
When does this take place? Obviously it's after ROTJ because the empire is "over" but they've never heard of the Jedi? Or the force?

Also, hey Taika Waititi directed the final episode haha no wonder there was some top notch bants between the two stormtroopers at the beginning of the episode.

Finally, IG is the best!

Yeah Boba was a Mandalorian. I don't know when they first mentioned as a faction but in the old EU they appeared in a ton of comics and novels. They also appear a lot in the Clone Wars and Rebels TV shows. The Prequals might mention them as well, not sure, it's been years since I've seen then last.

We don't know how long after ROTJ this takes place. However the Empire did go to extreme lengths to either wipe out all mention of Jedi or distort knowledge about them. And even during the height of the Republic and the Jedi Order, people still didn't really know much about the Force and the Jedi tended to be criptic enough that they seemed like weird space wizards that are the Republic's enforcers.

I mean I got the impression that it takes place around the same time as TFA because it's a time of upheaval with the end of the Empire and all the old generals are grabbing power while they still have loyal troops etc.

No, he’s not a Mandalorian. His father Jango was born on Concord Dawn (not Mandalore)...but is technically considered one...but Boba is clone, born on Kamino and never indoctrinated into a tribe. As such, Fett Is not a Mando. He just wears Mando armour. This is how he’s described on the Star Wars databank to avoid calling him an actual Mandalorian. I actually expect this to be a plot point in s2 though, so we should get an answer.

And we do know how long after ROTJ it takes place. 7 years according to the writers,

This is Sasha Banks from The Mandalorian Season 2 trailer. WWE wrestler who normally has brightly coloured hair. The shot of her appears right after Mando asks "You want me to deliver the child to a race of enemy sorcerers" referring to the Jedi.

This has led to speculation that Sasha is playing Sabine Wren. The last time we saw Sabine, she had joined Ahsoka (who we know is in this season played by Rosario Dawson) on a quest to find Ezra and Thrawn in the Unknown Regions...in the post-ROTJ epilogue for REBELS.

She was also the last person we saw truly wield the fabled Darksaber before handing it off to Bo-Katan to lead the Mandalorians....prior to seeing it in the hands of Moff Giancarlo Esposito on the finale of MANDO S1.

So it makes sense for her to be in the show.

And the character Sasha is playing is rumoured to be called Phantom...which....I mean...

Kanan really hinted around she had the mojo to do it but he also said everyone could to. Maybe Ashoka was able to bring it out. She still a through and through Mando though so she deserves a spot.

Oh and let's be clear, Sasha is not Asian, and Sabine clearly is according to Filoni, so that is the biggest indicator to me that Sasha is NOT playing Sabine Wren, but someone else.
