A tantalising rumour has surfaced via Slashfilm claiming that Katee Sackhoff, the voice of Bo-Katan in animated Star Wars series The Clone Wars and Rebels has been cast in season two of The Mandalorian to play the live action version of the character.

We have exclusively learned that Sackhoff will be playing a live-action version of Bo-Katan Kryze, a Mandalorian warrior she previously voiced in Dave Filoni’s animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and later Star Wars Rebels.

Although both Lucasfilm and Sackhoff’s reps declined to comment, we have confirmed this story with multiple sources. She filmed her role back in February before Hollywood production shut down due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

As always, until Lucasfilm confirm Katee, Rosario Dawson, Michael Biehn or Temuera Morrison it’s just a rumour.
