Rosario Dawson is joining the Star Wars universe.

In a move that will make many Star Wars fans happy, Rosario Dawson has been cast as Ahsoka Tano in season two of The Mandalorian.

This will mark the character’s first live-action appearance, after being voiced by Ashley Eckstein on all seven seasons of the Clone Wars. Tano is Anakin Skywalker’s apprentice and one of the central characters in the popular animated Star Wars series, whose seventh and final season is currently airing on Disney Plus.
