The details surrounding the role of the actress are still sparse, but it is undoubtedly a great addition. The cast also features Ivanna Sakhno as a formidable mercenary, Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren and Hayden Christensen again as Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader.

The student / teacher relationship between Ahsoka and Anakin is was one of the central points of the animated series The Clone Wars and it will therefore be very interesting to see it again in live action, perhaps through flashbacks. Ahsoka's flesh-and-blood debut came thanks to Rosario Dawson in The Mandalorian's second season.

Will she wield a lightsaber for good, or could Winstead be about to step into the iconic pantheon of Star Wars villainy? Maybe she'll be plastered in motion-captured special effects?

Let the theories flow through you.

Interestingly, the franchise newcomer's real-life partner is none other than Obi-Wan Kenobi's Ewan McGregor, who's busy with his own solo Star Wars project.

'I'm very excited about it,' the Scotsman commented back in 2020. 'I think we shot the last one I did in 2003 [Revenge of the Sith], so it's been a while and I'm that much closer to Alec Guinness' age now.

'So that was always the fun part about playing Obi-Wan Kenobi, for me, was to try and study Alec Guinness and think about maybe how he would have behaved in these scenes as a younger man.

'So now I'll be a bit closer and it'll be nice to sort of bridge that gap. It's really exciting.'

The Mandalorian seasons 1 and 2 are streaming now on Disney+. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and the entire Skywalker Saga are available on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K now, as well as on Disney+, while Rise of Skywalker is also on Sky Cinema Premiere and NOW.
