Giancarlo Esposito is also back as the evil Moff Gideon.
In terms of new additions to the cast, there are quite a few fan-favorite Star Wars characters making their live-action series debut this season, according to multiple reports:
The biggest casting of them all is Rosario Dawson, who is set to bring beloved Jedi hero Ahsoka Tano to live-action for the first time. Ahsoka is best known as an animated character in The Clone Wars and Rebels. Here are some theories as to what she might be up to on the show.
Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett and the clone troopers in the Prequel Trilogy, will bring an older version of Boba Fett to the show. But just how did Fett escape the sarlacc pit from Return of the Jedi? We’ve made some educated guesses.
Katee Sackhoff will reprise the role of Mandalorian warrior Bo-Katan Kryze, whom she first voiced in The Clone Wars and Rebels. This is the first time we’ll see the character in live-action. As far as we know, Bo-Katan was the last Mandalorian to wield the mythical Darksaber before Gideon got his hands on it. Here’s what Bo-Katan’s return might mean for season 2.
