Fan-favorite Star Wars: Rebels characters are set to take center stage in the upcoming Disney+ series Ahsoka. Ahead of the show’s premiere later this month, the official Star Wars Twitter account has shared a set of posters showcasing Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla, and Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren. Bordizzo’s Sabine is pictured with a green lightsaber, believed to be Ezra Bridger’s from Star Wars: Rebels.
Sabine Wren was a major part of Star Wars: Rebels and is appearing for the first time in live action during Disney+’s Ahsoka.
Dave Filoni, who previously worked on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels, wrote and executive produced Ahsoka. The series, set in the same timeline as The Mandalorian, follows Ahsoka as she probes a new threat post-Empire’s fall. The show is generating considerable excitement, as it’s expected to provide some follow-up to the cliffhanger ending of the series finale of Star Wars: Rebels.
While named Ahsoka, the series presents Sabine Wren as a significant protagonist alongside Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano, evident through the show’s promotional efforts. Notably, both characters were part of Star Wars: Rebels, with Sabine’s role being more substantial, appearing in 66 episodes compared to Ahsoka’s 14. In Rebels, Sabine was voiced by Tiya Sircar, while in Ahsoka, the character is played by Natasha Liu Bordizzo.
In Star Wars: Rebels, Sabine Wren underwent a remarkable journey filled with growth and courage. As a skilled explosives expert and graffiti artist, she brought a distinct combination of talents to the Ghost crew. Her involvement in the crew’s operations against the Empire ranged from tactical ingenuity in combat situations to strategic planning that contributed to the Rebellion’s broader efforts.
Sabrine Wren’s skills extended beyond combat, shaping the Rebellion’s identity. Wren’s profound influence encompassed creating the iconic starbird symbol that united rebels and represented the Alliance to Restore the Republic, which is why it’s also known as the Wren Phoenix crest.
