Ever since she’s returned in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, there have been numerous reports suggesting that Ahsoka may appear in Star Wars: The Mandalorian.

Though Lucasfilm has yet to confirm rumors that Marvel Netflix star Rosario Dawson is set to play the former Jedi Padawan in Jon Favreau’s hit Star Wars series, there’s been a lot of talk about how Ahsoka might appear in The Mandalorian and the role that she’s going to play in the show. Is Ahsok going to serve as an ally to Mando (Pedro Pascal)? Will she fight against Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) 4?

According to a report by Express, it’s possible that Mando is going to run into Ahsoka as the former Jedi padawan travels across the galaxy to take back the Darksaber from the Jedi. An ancient and unique black-bladed saber created by the first-ever Mandalorian to find himself inducted into the Jedi Order, the Darksaber is a weapon that fans first ran across in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The saber somehow made it into the hands of Moff Gideon during the season 1 finale of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, and while we’ve yet to learn how the weapon plays into  Baby Yoda’s story, there has been speculation saying that the Darksaber may draw out Ahsoka out into the open.

It’s an interesting fan theory, to say the least. Lucasfilm hasn’t revealed that much about its plans for the second season of The Mandalorian, so we have to wait and see whether all the speculation about Ahsoka in the series ever comes true.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian is streaming on Disney+.
