The trailer for the second season of The Mandalorian dropped today and featured a familiar face to wrestling fans: Sasha Banks. 

Banks (Mercedes Kaestner-Varnado) will play an unspecified part, but there is speculation that her character will be a Jedi. A Disney Plus property, The Mandalorian is set in the Star Wars universe. Banks tweeted the trailer today, confirming her role.

The Mat Men podcast first reported Banks's involvement in the series back in February. 

Season one of The Mandalorian has been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series, as well as fourteen Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Former MMA star Gina Carano is also a Mandalorian cast member. 

Banks is a former NXT Women's Champion and a five-time WWE Raw Women's Champion. Her most recent Raw title reign ended at SummerSlam on August 23. 

After being off WWE television for a week to sell a beating from her tag team partner Bayley, Banks is set to return to Friday Night SmackDown this week.
