Ahsoka star Rosario Dawson attributes landing her role to viral Star Wars fan art. Ahsoka Tano was first introduced to the Star Wars universe in The Clone Wars as Anakin Skywalker's young apprentice.
Although Ahsoka started off as a slightly annoying young Jedi who often butted heads with her Master, by the time The Clone Wars' final season was released.
Ahsoka reappeared in Star Wars: Rebels as a mature leader and mentor to Ezra Bridger, and she made her live-action debut in The Mandalorian season 2, portrayed by Dawson.
After her appearance in The Mandalorian, Disney announced a live-action spinoff series focusing on Ahsoka after the fall of the Empire as she hunts Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Dawson will reprise her role, while several Rebels characters will appear in Ahsoka, including Sabine Wren, portrayed by Natasha Liu Bordizzo.
Ever since Dawson took on the role, she has given credit to the many people who helped develop the character before her, including the Star Wars fandom.
Her gratitude is understandable, because Ahsoka Tano has enormous potential to expand the Star Wars universe even further, thanks to her connections to so many eras.
Dawson could appear in any upcoming Star Wars project, including the Rogue One prequel series Andor, and Ahsoka may even set up future spinoffs.
