The character of Ahsoka Tano first appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels, and this would mark the character’s first live-action appearance.

“We have confirmed this Dawson casting with two independent sources. We reached out to Lucasfilm to request a statement from the company or Dave Filoni, but received no response. We have been chasing this scoop for a month now and have reached out to Rosario’s reps, who also didn’t respond,” they reported.

Years ago, Rosario agreed that she’d love to play the character in a response to a fan on Twitter. Now, it appears to be a fan casting dream come true!

You can now purchase The Rise of Skywalker in HD for $19.99 on Apple TV and iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Vudu, FandangoNow and Movies Anywhere. It’s also available in 4K Ultra HD for $24.99. The movie will get a physical DVD and Blu-ray release on March 31 and you can start renting the film on demand that day.

New 'Star Wars' Movie in the Works, Though Little Is Known

A new Star Wars movie is in development, though little is actually known about the film at this point.

THR reports that Sleight writer and director J.D. Dillard (pictured) and Luke Cage writer Matt Owens have been hired to develop the project. It’s not yet known if the film will get a theatrical release or if it will go directly to Disney+.

It is being reported that the new project is not related to separate Star Wars projects being created by Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Last Jedi director Rian Johnson.

Earlier this month, Disney CEO Bob Iger said that “the priority for Star Wars in the short-term is going to be, I’ll call it television for Disney+, and then we will have more to say about development of theatrical soon after that.”

Diego Luna Reveals Exciting New Details About His 'Star Wars' Series for Disney+

Diego Luna is revealing new details about his upcoming Disney+ series based on Star Wars: Rogue One.

“We are doing it this year,” the 40-year-old actor shared with ET over the weekend. “It’s happening, and I’m getting ready for it.”

However, Diego admits that he doesn’t know a lot about the content of the show, but since it is a prequel series, he does know how it ends.

“I can’t wait,” he said. “It is really cool to tell a story where you already know the ending.”

Diego continues, “It is a different approach because of the beauty and it’s how things happen. It’s not just what happens. It’s not the typical way of approaching a story. It’s about how things happen, which in fact, is the same that happened in Rogue One. You know the ending, but you don’t know how it happened, and we have that challenge in front of us again, which is exciting.”

The show will follow Cassian’s adventures during the formative years of the Rebellion, before the events of Rogue One.

Ewan McGregor Reveals His 'Star Wars' Actor Uncle Denis Lawson Tried to Talk Him Out of Joining the Franchise! (Video)

Ewan McGregor was discouraged by his own uncle to star in a Star Wars movie – which his uncle originally starred in!

The 48-year-old The Phantom Menace actor revealed that his uncle Denis Lawson, who played Wedge Antilles in Star Wars, tried to discourage him from joining the cast.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Ewan McGregor

“When my parents took me to…see Star Wars for the first time in the cinema, to see my uncle on the screen but also it was Star Wars, it blew my mind. And my uncle is in all three of those original films…He’d always been really dismissive of it because he did a couple of weeks work, sitting in a cardboard spaceship…and yet he had this massive following. It sort of annoyed him,” Ewan revealed on Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist, which airs on Sunday (February 9).

“He was one of the people who said, ‘Don’t do it, don’t do it, don’t do it…and then the nearer I got to it, the more I wanted to do it.”

One Star Wars star may never return to reprise his role in future films. Find out who!
