Star Wars fanatics hoping for some more news on the popular character Ahsoka Tano ahead of The Mandalorian Season 2 should strap themselves in, because an insider has leaked huge news.

Ahsoka has been a fan-favorite since the days of Star Wars Clone Wars and eventually continued her story arc into Rebels. Now, while it had already been confirmed that Ahsoka would be in The Mandalorian, we have new info about just how big her role will be.

In a now-deleted tweet, reporter and insider John Campea posted a list of five things about The Mandalorian Season 2, including a claim that Ahsoka would have a small scene in a single episode.

He noted that one of the five things he posted was a lie, but when questioned about whether the Ahsoka info wasn’t truthful, he claimed that, “you had a 20% chance of guessing which one wasn’t true… and you didn’t get it.”

John Campea seemed to confirm Ahsoka will be in Season 2.

This suggests that Ahsoka will in fact have a small role, however, the length of the scene may be a bit controversial.

According to Campea, Ahsoka will be in only “one episode” and it’s not exactly a “cameo.”

So, for fans hoping for a little more than just a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene, you’re going to have to wait for another show or movie.

Ahsoka isn’t exactly a “cameo” according to insider John Campea.

“I think you’ll be happy regardless,” Campea wrote to a fan not pleased with the news. “One episode and all.”

As for when she will appear, as Dexerto previously noted, Dave Filoni inked the season’s fifth episode and Ahsoka is his favorite, having introduced her way back in The Clone Wars.

Star Wars and Disney have pulled off small interconnected semi-cameos from animated shows before. For example, the Ghost from Rebels is seen briefly in Rogue One.

As always, take this information with a grain of salt, especially as it comes from a deleted tweet, but nonetheless, this is big news for Star Wars fans if it ends up being accurate.

The Mandalorian Season 2 kicks off October 30 on Disney Plus.

The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan drops big teaser for next six episodes

Lauren Cohan, returning star of AMC’s The Walking Dead, has claimed that six upcoming episodes are the best she’s ever read. 

While some fans have argued The Walking Dead would have been better off ending earlier, there are millions of fans eagerly anticipating what the show’s climactic Season 11 will have in store. 30 episodes have been confirmed, and it sounds like the show’s final set of episodes will start with a bang.

Lauren Cohan’s character, Maggie Rhee, first appeared in episode two of season two, and originally exited the show in season nine. This was so Cohan could pursue a role on ABC’s Whiskey Cavalier.

However, Cohan and Rhee are both now back, and looking forward to the zombie thriller’s last hurrah.

The Walking Dead is set to return for 30 new episodes over the next year or so.

While 30 episodes are set to be released, the ongoing global health crisis means six have been commissioned to be filmed in a socially-distanced way. That doesn’t appear to have stunted their quality though – at least if Cohan’s comments to The Hollywood Reporter are anything to go by.

“It’s a gift for the writers and it’s a gift for us,” she told THR, “to really cherish every single moment and to pour the literal blood, sweat, and tears into the show like there’s no tomorrow because we are going to be getting some killer stuff to do. I know it because we have these six episodes now to do. I might have said this before about other things, but these are the best episodes that I’ve ever read.”

What the writers of The Walking Dead have up their sleeves remains to be seen, but it’s clear that the show’s stars are seriously excited about what is to come. Based on the comments of Lauren Cohan, fans can start to get excited too.

The six episodes Cohan is referring to will be followed by 24 more over a two year period.
