Katee Sackhoff Reportedly Cast as Bo-Katan in The Mandalorian

Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica meet! It seems that Katee Sackhoff will enter the live-action Lucasfilm universe as Mandalorian Bo-Katan Kryze, whom she previously voiced on The Clone Wars and Rebels. Slashfilm, which previously broke the news that Rosario Dawson would play Ahsoka Tano, reported this confirmed with multiple sources.

Once the first season of The Mandalorian ended with a reveal of the darksaber, it should have been inevitable that Kryze would return, as she was the last known wielder of that legendary weapon. And with The Clone Wars recently depicting her fighting alongside Ahsoka during the Siege of Mandalore, the latter’s return also paved the way.

And speaking of the way…Kryze’s era of Mandalorians was notably different from Din Djarin’s. As even the image above shows, they once had no issue with removing helmets. Presumably we’ll learn more about how the creed became more dogmatic in the years since Rebels.

What with Ahsoka, Boba Fett, and Bo-Katan all appearing next season, storylines clearly head deeper into Mando lore. Less authoritative rumors still swirl that Rebels‘ Sabine Wren may appear as well. But rest assured that Jon Favreau and crew will always find time for Baby Yoda somehow. Presumably, Moff Gideon’s background, as it unfurls, will tie all these storylines together.

Are you looking forward to The Mandalorian season 2? Would you want to see even more legacy characters return? Let us know in comments below.
