Katee Sackhoff is no stranger to space and sci-fi. /Film is reporting that the Battlestar Galactica alum is playing alive-action version of a character she knows well: Bo-Katan Kryze, who Sackhoff has voiced in Dave Filoni’s animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.
Bo-Katan is a Mandalorian warrior, who was once the Mandalorian leader and wielded the Darksaber. With Moff Gideon now in procession of the Darksaber as seen in the final shots of the first season of The Mandalorian, it make sense that Bo-Katan would be a character revisited.
With Season 2 bringing to live-action both Ahsoka and now Bo-Katan, and possibly Captain Rex, its clear that Filoni not only means business, but intends on bringing characters from his animated corners to live-action to finish out their stories.
October can’t get here soon enough!!
