Actor TEMUERA MORRISON has been listed to play Boba Fett. How freaking cool is this?

If they give him some actual character unlike in the OT that would be good.

I'm far more interested in Ahsoka's reappearance though tbh.

Sabine and Bo Katan were inevitable. Rex is a surprise, as he would be OLD for a growth accelerated clone.

What I'm just waiting for is Sabine to come on, take off her helmet and start mocking Mando for all the ritualistic "This is the Way" silliness. They could have a lot of fun with the "old school" Mandalorians and the "Tribe"

When last we left Rebels, Ahsoka and Sabine went to go find Ezra. Is he still lost? Will they have a flashback showing how Moff Gideon acquires The Dark Saber from Bo Katan? That's a big time gap until when The Mandalorian picks up. Rex was already an old man in ROTJ , considerably older than Boba. It would be cool to see the two interact if not then just for fan service lol. So Sabine and Bo Katan, real Mandalorians, will bump into the son(Boba) of the template(Jango) of the clones(Rex) who was an exiled Mandalorian. Dinn D'jarin , a foundling Mandalorian , will protect a force sensitive child(baby Yoda) who may or may not be a clone from Kamino from another clone, Boba, by giving him to Ahsoke. Bo Katan knows Rex, or at least recognizes him from Mandalore. When Order 66 happened, the Clones now Stormtroopers occupied Mandalore.
Will she have resentment towards him or the clones? Does she put two and two together and realize Boba and Rex are both clones? Does Ahsoka try to reason with Boba given the good relationship between her and Rex. My brain is going in circles nerdgasming with all the speculation. Side note, I think Darth Vader let Boba Fett slide with back talk in ESB because of his fondness for Rex.

Its going to be hard listening to Rosario Dawson speak, when all I've ever heard from Ahsoka's mouth was Ashley Eckstein's voice.

Yeah man. I'm kinda torn tbh. Ashley is Ahsoka. The voice is hard wired already in most fans ears. Did they shi7 on Ashley? Yeah, kinda, sorta... Then again Ashley doesn't have the physicality to play Ahsoka. Not saying Rosario is going to do it any better though. Rumor is that Ahsoka will only be in one episode. So maybe there isn't that much dialog. Also this takes place years later so I can extend the courtesy of doubt by saying she's older and maturer hence Rosario's voice. It ain't the end for either actress. Ashley will still do voice over Ahsoka work and Rosario will get a spin off series.

Side note, Katee Sackhoff who voices Bo Katan will be playing her. Now she has the prowess for that role.

I don't think it'll be too hard to get used to really, most of the big name characters have multiple actors, esepcially between animated and live action. Dave Filoni is also very much involved in The Mandalorian (and presumably the rumoured Ahsoka spinoff) and is sure to make sure they try to capture as many vocal mannerisms as possible to ease the transition (he does seem to be very protective of the character and doesn't seem to like it when writers go off and do their own thing (see Ahsoka novel retcons in TCW season 7) so I'm pretty sure they'll do her justice)

I for one am very curious to see how the people who've never actually seen Ahsoka before will react to her. Suddenly we have this immensely powerful force user (assuming they show that) dropping in, introducing a whole lot of questions about who she is and how on earth did she get to be there? And all in one episode.

Remember that we knew Giancarlo Esposito was going to be in season 1 from the very beginning, and he didn't show up until the last two episodes. If she is truly only going to be in one episode, perhaps its going to be at the end as well?

Otherwise if its a mid-season episode, we'd have to assume that it would be some sort of scenario where Din Djarin realizes that she has the same power as The Child but she either rejects taking care of The Child, or he judges her unworthy. The former is a possibility ... she may be five years deep into her quest with Sabine Wren to find Ezra Bridger, and may not feel it is appropriate to take The Child on that dangerous quest. Plus, I can't imagine she didn't know about or hear about the son of Skywalker who helped defeat the Emperor, which implies she deliberately chose not to join up with Luke ... presumably to go and find Bridger. Maybe Luke actually encouraged her to go and find Bridger, so both of them could help him rebuild the Order. But then, in the final episode, Tano would tell Djarin to find Skywalker, as the new Jedi Order would be the closest thing to family for The Child.

But I cannot see Djarin rejecting her as unworthy. He knows nothing of the Force, let alone the Jedi Order, and therefore would have no knowledge of the circumstances under which Tano left the Order. Even though she doesn't self-identify as a Jedi during her arc in Rebels, she reconciles with Yoda in the temple on Lothal and appears to have adopted the monastic nature of the Jedi by the epilogue. The fact that the Jedi were "ancient enemies" as described by The Armorer didn't stop him from taking The Child into his clan, in fact he was instructed to take The Child to the so-called "ancient enemies" anyway as his duty. So, just being an ancient enemy wouldn't, in and of itself, preclude Tano from being worthy to take custody of The Child. I can't think of a specific reason why he would judge her unworthy, dishonorable, etc.

My money is it will be in the season finale. Those are usually the best time to drop bombshells, and Ahsoka has the potential to drop a big bombshell (or, I think more likely, lots of little bombshells that fans will be hyper-analyzing for months)

That being said, for all we know, there won't even be any direct contact between Ahsoka and Mando, and Mando doesn't seem to know much about the Jedi so even if they did, it's unlikely he'd even recognize her as a Jedi, considering last time we see her she's doing an excellent Gandalf the White impersonation.

We also don't know what history there is between Luke and Ahsoka. It would strike me as a bit weird for them to have never met at all post ROTJ. Perhaps she foresaw disaster and when he refused to listen, she left him to his devices to go off on/continue the hunt for Ezra, which would also explain why she wouldn't send The Child off to him.

For that matter, we don't know much of Ahsoka's current motives/mental state, or even how long she was stuck on Malachor. There are still questions about why did she take so long to turn up? was it something as mundane as she couldn't get off Malachor? or did her internal turmoil cause her to go into hiding for awhile just like she did post Order 66? Also, why is she placing the hunt for Ezra above aiding a fledgling New Republic? Is Ezra even her primary goal or is it Thrawn? (we know Sabine is hunting Ezra, but we don't hear Ahsoka's motives for tagging along)

Lots of interesting questions, and I doubt we're going to get more than breadcrumbs in season 2, the meat will be in the Ahsoka series (assuming rumours are true)
