STAR WARS : THE MANDALORIAN SEASON TWO THEORIES
Article written by Dylan Devine (10/9/20)
The inclusion of Ahsoka Tano
The inclusion of Ahsoka Tano has been heavily rumored since basically the end of season one of The Mandalorian. For those of you not familiar with Ahsoka, she was featured in the Star Wars animated series “Star Wars The Clone Wars”. Ahsoka was Anakin Skywalker’s padawan, and basically like a little sister to him. She ultimately ended up leaving the Jedi Order in season six of the Clone Wars, but was still a prominent figure in the final season. It is rumored that Tano will be appearing in season two of The Mandalorian as it was confirmed pretty much everywhere that they finally casted Rosario Dawson as the live action Ahsoka Tano and it would be for season two of The Mandalorian. The main question is why and how she will be involved. We know Din Djarin’s *Mandalorian* main mission right now is to return the Child to his kind. The Armorer told him he needed to reunite the Child with his kind “An ancient group of sorcerers known as Jedi” in the finale for season one. I have a feeling that Jedi will be Ahsoka Tano.
Boba Fett survived!
Fans for YEARS have questioned the fate of beloved original trilogy character, Boba Fett. Did he somehow get out of the sarclacc pit? Is he actually dead? This has been overly talked about and theorized basically since 1983 but no one has ever confirmed Fett’s fate. I believe that figure with the boots at the end of episode five from season one was Boba Fett. Temuera Morrison’s agency confirmed he would be playing Boba Fett in season two of The Mandalorian so we basically know it’s happening, we just don’t know what his role will be. In the trailer for season two, there is a shot of Din Djarin on a speeder bike. If you pause that shot and look closely it somewhat looks like he has Boba Fett’s armor on the back of the speeder bike. I think Mando somehow recovered Fett’s armor and will be led to Freetown on Tattoine and will bring the armor back to Fett. Another simple idea I have is that Fett did survive, and he is still a bounty hunter. He encounters Djarin and the Child as he has possibly been assigned to hunt down and take the Child in.
Moff Gideon took the darksaber from Bo Katan
The last time we saw the darksaber before season one, it was in the hands of Mandalorian Bo Katan. How did Moff Gideon obtain the saber? Katan is being played by Katee Sackhoff in season two which means she is alive, but in what is she up to now and how did she lose the darksaber to Gideon? I think we’ll see some sort of flashback scene with Gideon taking the saber from Katan, then maybe Djarin and the Child will be assisting Katan with re-obtaining the saber.
Sasha Banks character is Sabine Wren or is connected to Ahsoka
In the season two trailer, there is a mysterious character that looks to be watching Djarin and the Child. This character is played by WWE superstar, Sasha Banks. We do not know who she will be playing, but from the looks of it she will likely be playing a big role in season two. I believe Banks character is most likely beloved character from Star Wars Rebels, Sabine Wren. If she is not Wren, she likely is someone who is connected to Ahsoka Tano. Maybe a new padawan for Tano?
