In an exclusive interview with Slashfilm, Katee Sackhoff teased that you might not have seen the last of the live-action version Bo-Katan. Though she naturally didn’t outright confirm or deny anything about the character’s future, she was more than willing to drop a few teasers about what she feels might be next for the character — and it indeed involves dealing with the whole Darksaber ownership situation the sophomore season of “The Mandalorian” ended with.
“The way that Lucasfilm left me in season 2, one of the roads that could be gone down — absolutely, you’d think — would be the unfinished business,” Sackhoff told Slashfilm. “But that is so far above my pay grade, and you just don’t know, right? As a fan of the show, I’m just excited to see what they come up with.” That being said, Sackhoff also noted that she’s had plenty of conversations with executive producer Dave Filoni about the character, so no matter what happens, she’s at the very least well-informed. “Dave and I talk a lot about Bo and her backstory and time lost and things like that, just because we enjoy talking about Star Wars and the characters,” Sackhoff revealed. “I definitely know a lot about who she is and where she’s been and what’s happened. So, yeah, I knew that kind of stuff for sure.”
One thing Sackhoff made very clear she’d like to do is explore Bo-Katan’s historically close relationship with the Jedi Ahsoka Tano (played by Rosario Dawson in “The Mandalorian”) in live action form, if only because she’d be super interested to work with Dawson. “I love Rosario,” the actress said. “I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting her. So maybe one of these days.” Maybe, indeed.
