Rosario Dawson first played Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Mandalorian before reprising the role again in The Book of Boba Fett, and last year saw the long-awaited debut of the Ahsoka solo series. In Dawson’s episode of The Book of Boba Fett, she worked alongside iconic Star Wars legend, Mark Hamill. This month, Dawson and Hamill reunited to record a special Fright Night episode of Manifest Media’s Table Read podcast. attended the recording, and we asked Dawson if she had any Ahsoka updates to share.

“Nope,” Dawson replied when asked if she’s read anything from Ahsoka Season 2. “Hugely so,” she said about being excited to continue the series. “I mean, it’s a big deal. It’s huge. I love everyone. It’s an incredible cast. It’s a great group of people and we get more Ahsoka, we get more Sabine. We get more of these characters in a way that – and as much as we’ve watched all of the previous shows and everything – it’s new storytelling, which is just insane to me. So I hope there’s new costumes and I want to know what’s going on.”
