Since its late 2019 release, The Mandalorian has been a massive hit and has even managed to draw in watchers who are not usually fans of the Star Wars franchise.

The series follows a lone bounty hunter, played by Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones, The Equalizer 2), who comes into contact with a young creature known in the show as ‘The Child’, while us fans have appropriately named it ‘Baby Yoda’.

Due to its impressive first season, The Mandalorian has been renewed for a second. You can find its release date HERE.

Ahsoka Tano debuted in the hit animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which began back in 2008 and has since managed to feature in a total of 70-episodes. She was voiced by Ashley Eckstein.

We first fell in love with the young Jedi when she was revealed as Anakin Skywalker’s padawan, but her growth throughout the show proved she was as fascinating as Anakin himself.

Dave Filoni, the Clone Wars creator, had Ahsoka join his new series, Star Wars Rebels, which lets watchers learn more about the fan-favorite character’s fate.

Re-joining the cast for The Mandalorian season 2 is, of course, the bounty hunter himself, and a confrontation between these two is exactly what we’re waiting for.
