Kathleen Kennedy and Dave Filoni Praise Rosario Dawson:

Rosario Dawson first took on the role of Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian and played her again in The Book of Boba Fett. Now, she is getting her own showAhsoka. Ahsoka was first introduced in Star Wars: Clone Wars and became a staple in Star Wars Rebels before joining the world of live-action. Recently, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Ahsoka showrunner Dave Filoni shared praise for Dawson. 

"Rosario Dawson is such an incredibly powerful actress, and she loves this character," Kennedy says in the studio's official press briefing for the series. "Everything about who Ahsoka is, what she represents, that interesting tension that exists between good and evil, dark and light, her previous relationship with Darth Vader (Anakin Skywalker)—all of that she has just brought to life in a way that almost no one else could."

"The person that's your number one on set, when they arrive in the morning it's going to set the tone for the whole day. And you'll never meet a person with a better attitude in the morning than Rosario," Filoni added. "She is on fire, and she is ready to go. She knows her stuff, she's in it, and I appreciate that like you can't imagine. The way she attacks everything, it's just the greatest thing. I think that lifts all of us up and it affects everybody."
