After the huge leak, rumor, whatever you want to call it, went rampant across Star Wars social media that Rosario Dawson was cast as the role of Ahsoka Tano in season 2 of The Mandalorian, fans questioned whether Ashley Eckstein will continue voicing the character.
Although it’s been all speculation up to this point, we finally have found an answer from the one and only, Ashley Eckstein. Be warned… it may not be the answer you were hoping for.
“Parting is such sweet sorrow.” I don’t mean to make light of the situation, but I personally find this to be the right move by Lucasfilm. It’s time for someone else to take on the mantle of Ahsoka Tano and let them bring their own flavor to the character. Having Ashley voice-over Rosario would seem to minimize the role given to Rosario. Whether it’s a good casting choice or not, remains to be seen, but I am optimistic that Dave Filoni knows what he’s doing, especially since Ahsoka is his baby.
In the end, I’m grateful for Ashley’s professionalism and shaping the character we know today as Ahsoka Tano. She will be forever remembered as “Snips.”
Do you think Ashley Eckstein should voice-over Rosario Dawson?
