WWE Superstar Sasha Banks Officially Confirmed for The Mandalorian’s Season 2
Star Wars fans were treated today to an extensive look into the sophomore season of Disney+’s The Mandalorian. Since the release of the trailer earlier this morning , fans have been combing through the footage looking for potential hints towards what’s to come next for Din Djarin and the Child (Baby Yoda). Fans were quick to point out that the trailer features a surprising cameo from WWE Superstar , Sasha Banks.
At around the 42-second mark of the trailer, Mando and the Child arrive at a snowy space port location. While the Mandalorian stops to observe his surroundings, his gaze stops on a cloaked Banks.
Mercedes Justine Kaestner-Varnado, better known by her Sasha Banks wrestling persona, was rumored to be filming scenes for season two of the Mandalorian back in February. While there is no official report privy to what character she is portraying , the trailer’s structure provides vague hints. In the trailer, Banks’ cameo is shown during Mando’s voiceover conversation about the Jedi and their lasting conflict with the Mandalorians. Without any official indications, fans have been quick to theorize that she might be playing the live-action version of the Star Wars Rebels character Sabine Wren.
Shorty after the trailer was released, Sasha took to Twitter to share her excitement for the new season of The Mandalorian.
