Kahhori in What If…?

According to Marvel, the episode asks, “What would happen if the Tesseract fell to Earth and landed in the sovereign Haudenosaunee Confederacy before the colonization of America?” The article further explains that the Tesseract transforms a lake into a portal to the stars, through which a young Mohawk woman travels “on a quest to discover her power.” However, there is no information available regarding who might voice the character.

The episode is written by Ryan Little, who also worked on What If…? Season 1. To ensure cultural authenticity, Kahhori’s creation was a collaboration with members of the Mohawk Nation. These included Mohawk linguistic expert Cecelia King and historian Doug George. The episode draws on the real-world history of the Akwesasne region where it is set. It features dialogue in the Mohawk language and incorporates traditional Mohawk music.

Additionally, the entire production team also worked closely with members of the Mohawk Nation while designing Kahhori’s appearance and environment. This included executive producer A.C. Bradley, story editor Matthew Chauncey and director Bryan Andrews.  

While the second season of What If…? was initially announced to arrive in early 2023, that now seems unlikely. However, an official release date has yet to be reported. What If…? Season 1 premiered on Disney+ in 2021. The first season saw the debut of several new incarnations of MCU superheroes, including T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) as Star-Lord T’Challa.
