Diana Lee Inosanto made her Star Wars debut as Morgan Elsbeth in the fifth episode of the second season of The Mandalorian where Rosario Dawson also made her first appearance as the live-action version of Ahsoka Tano.

One of the memorable moments during that episode is the climactic fight sequence between the two characters where it ended with Ahsoka asking Elsbeth about the whereabouts of Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Little did we know during that time, the entire episode was a set-up to the recently-premiered Ahsoka and Elsbeth will end up having a major presence in the new series as one of the main villains.

It is inevitable at this point that the two characters will cross paths again later in the series. Will we see another rematch between the two? Is it going to be more intense than their first fight? Fortunately, we have the answer from the actress herself.

In an interview with the Dagobah Dispatch podcast that was conducted prior to the actors' strike (via Screen Rant), Inosanto teased her character's upcoming rematch with Ahsoka Tano in one of the later episodes.

While she didn't give the specifics about the context of their rematch, she did reveal that it will be longer and more intense than what they did in The Mandalorian.

"The fight scene for sure, because we had about 17 hours to kick out that fight scene between Rosario and I, whereas this time around, it's definitely gonna... we had days at it. Let's just say that. There were days at it for that fight scene, it's a long, involved fight scene. It's pretty intense," Inosanto said.

It sounds like the upcoming rematch between Ahsoka and Elsbeth is going to be worth the wait and it is exciting to see now how it will play out given their history together.

We can also bet that Elsbeth is probably more outraged right now and she definitely has a major beef with Ahsoka which will contribute to their intense rematch.

Given that they shot the sequence for days, there is no doubt now that it's going to be an important moment in the series when we see it later on and the choreography might be more intricate this time around which is probably helped by Inosanto's experience as a martial arts expert.

New episodes of Ahsoka premiere every Tuesday night on Disney+.
