THE Mandalorian fans are convinced a legendary Star Wars Jedi has been frozen and locked up – but will be rescued by Mando.
The second season of the Disney+ series is already two episodes in, and fans are beginning to wonder if rumours that Rosario Dawson is playing Ahsoka Tano are true.

Ahsoka appears in animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and fans are desperate for her to make her live action debut.
One fan believes Ahsoka has been captured by villain Moff Gideon and is being held in a carbonite block – much like the one Han Solo was stored in in the original films – at an Imperial prison.
Writing on Reddit, the fan suggested Mando is tasked with breaking her out, and that’s why he seeks the help of Cara Dune and Greef Karga, as seen in the season two trailer.
The fan’s theory also references the fact that Mythrol – a blue alien who was Mando’s first bounty in season one – appears in the season two trailer alongside Cara and Greef.

Mythrol was also held in carbonite and imprisoned, so it stands to reason that Ahsoka would be too if she was captured, especially as she a Jedi and Force-sensitive.
Fans also speculate Sasha Banks’ character could be the key to Ahsoka’s introduction, if she is playing Sabine Wren.
Sasha is seen in a hooded cloak waiting for Mando in the trailer, and fans think she could be hoping he can help her find Ahsoka.
Speculation that Rosario, 41, was joining the series was first reported back in March.

Fans of the franchise have been demanding Dawson play the Jedi padawan for five years.
In 2017, a fan asked Dawson on Twitter to star as Ahsoka, and the actress and singer replied: “Ummmm… yes, please?! #AhsokaLives”.
On Good Morning America, Rosario said it “would be amazing” to be cast as Tano, but Disney and Mandalorian show bosses are yet to confirm her casting.
The Mandalorian is available on Disney+ with new episodes dropping every Friday.
