Scoop: Ahsoka Tano in Major Lightsaber Duel in 'The Mandalorian'
Written By Mikey Sutton • Editor-in-Chief • Owner
The Mandalorian is focused on the buildup and the payoff.
The Disney+ TV series is not far from how Kevin Feige forms puzzle pieces with the MCU. Considering how both franchises are sharing some of the same personnel - Ant-Man's Peyton Reed even directed the second episode of Season Two - perhaps that's not surprising.
Rosario Dawson's addition to the cast as Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian this year has garnered substantial rumors and speculation of a live-action Rebels, but there's more to it than that.
The following could be a potential spoiler. According to my inside sources, Lucasfilm is planning a fiery showdown between Tano and Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) over the ownership of The Darksaber. This will be among The Mandalorian's biggest action sequences, something to rival or even top some of Star Wars' theatrical lightsaber duels.
There were a number of fans disappointed at how stingy the Mandalorian trailers were in showing footage, especially in showing Tano. This is by design. Lucasfilm wants to break the Internet in the same fashion they did with Baby Yoda and The Darksaber in Season Two.
Certainly a lightsaber vs. Darksaber scene would cut it in half.
