The Mandalorian: Dawson, Olyphant, Banks Confirmed
Instagram Adds Three Big Names to Disney+ show’s cast list…
What’s the old line from Hamlet? “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark…”
Well, I don’t know about rotten, but somebody is gonna have a tough email to answer in the AM.
Apparently, the Disney+ Instagram account in Denmark (yes, you read that correctly) confirmed three important names previously said to appear this season on The Mandalorian.

Those would be:
- Rent, Sin City, and Marvel actor Rosario Dawson;
- WWE wrestler, Sasha Banks;
- and Timothy Olyphant, whose name came up earlier this year.
All three, big-name entertainers adding some serious star-power to the groundbreaking Star Wars TV show on Disney+.
