Rosario Dawson’s Portrayal of Ahsoka Tano Boosted Dave Filoni’s Confidence for the Ahsoka Series

Apr 20, 2023

Rosario Dawson’s portrayal of Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian has significantly impacted Dave Filoni’s confidence in developing the character’s story. Filoni has been involved in shaping Ahsoka’s character since her introduction in The Clone Wars animated series. In an interview with Screen Rant, he discussed how Dawson’s performance gave him the assurance he needed to create the upcoming Ahsoka series. Filoni acknowledged that casting the right actor to play Ahsoka was crucial to the show’s success. After multiple discussions, he believed Dawson was the best choice to embody the character.

“The biggest question is, “Who is going to portray this character?” That is no small thing. In fact, it’s probably the most important thing. And luckily, through different discussions, Rosario really rose to the top. When I met her, I was like, “There’s no doubt to me that she’s going to be this person.” And it’s a fascinating thing when you walk on set, because she’s there so early. When I show up, she’s already Ahsoka. I’m in the village, and I’m talking to Ahsoka, and then we go on set, and we’re in the Star Wars galaxy. And then we go back off, but she’s Ahsoka. Because by the time I leave, she’s still getting off.”

Despite initial concerns about bringing Ahsoka to live-action, Dave Filoni learned to trust Rosario Dawson’s ability to embody the character. He describes how he expected the transition from animated to live-action to be a big challenge and anticipated the need to help Dawson bring Ahsoka to life. However, after directing Dawson in The Mandalorian episode “The Jedi,” he realized she had the character fully under control.

“It’s a very bizarre thing, but you learn to trust that this person is going to take and embody this, and she really does. What was funny was, of all the complications I thought there would be to bring Ahsoka to live-action, I thought, “That’s going to be a big challenge. I have to really help Rosario.” And then I start directing her in the episode “The Jedi” [in] The Mandalorian, and I’m like, “Okay, she’s got this. Now I can worry about all these other things, and I can focus on all this, because this is gonna be good.” And I’ve just felt that way. It really made me confidant to do the series. Who knows where that goes now?”
