What Do We Know About Sasha Banks in Star Wars The Mandalorian: Season 2?

As you can see, Banks can be found in the trailer wearing a rather Jedi-esque robe. However, her official character name has yet to be announced.

Currently, we know very little about Banks’s character or even how integral to the plot she will be. 

The Sorcerous? 

Star Wars The Mandalorian: Season 2 – Episode 6 is entitled “The Sorcerous.” It is believed that this refers to Ahsoka Tano, a Togruta female, who was the Padawan learner to Anakin Skywalker and a hero of the Clone Wars. 

Keep in mind, Jedi are referred to as Sorcerers here. 

Could Sasha Bank’s Be Playing Ahsoka Tano?

Based on the fact that Sasha Banks’ character in the trailer is a human, it is highly unlikely. 

Could Sasha Bank’s Be Playing Sabine Wren?

There is a rumor flying around the galaxy that she may be playing a character by the name of Sabine Wren, a Mandalorian warrior, explosives expert, and graffiti artist. 

Some fans disagree with the theory. 

Flaws In The Theory?

It is doubtful that Moff Gideon is the only person in search of Baby Yoda, AKA The Child. After all, doesn’t it seem likely that somebody with ties to the dark side would love to use or destroy his powers? 

The Mandalorian is not going to be able to protect Baby Yoda from a Sorcerous. 

Ahsoka, on the other hand, could more than handle herself!

What Does This Mean For Sasha Banks?

If you watch the trailer again, take note of Dengar’s line “You expect me to search the galaxy and return the creature to a race of evil sorcerers?” 

The Sorcerers could be evil. This would thicken the plot, make for a better battle against Ashsoka, and play to Sasha Bank’s strengths, providing action scenes that require heavy physical combat.

An evil sorceress may have more stunt work, less dialogue. Given that this is Bank’s first acting role, something along the dark side seems more likely, rather than Sabine Wren.

Will There Be Another Trailer for The Mandalorian Season 2?

Search your feelings. You know it to be true…

We just may have to wait a couple weeks! 😉
