Fans rejoiced when The Mandalorian brought Clone Wars fan-favorite Ahsoka into the show, and now Ahsoka the series is going to be bringing into live-action characters from the beloved Rebels series.
One character making her live-action debut is Sabine Wren who is Mandalorian royalty, and a new promo image of her (played by Natasha Liu Bordizzo) shows off Sabine’s full costume in Ahsoka. Check this out:

Though Sabine’s outfit in Rebels is much brighter, her costume in Ahsoka still has those orange and maroon flourishes that really make her armor pop. While her hair is a shade of orange and purple in the animated series, it looks like the show is going to be sticking to her having purple hair.
Besides Sabine, other Rebels faces in the series will include Hera Syndulla (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Chopper the astromech droid, Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfandi), and Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen). The latest season of Mando also gave us a look at Zeb in live-action, but it’s unclear if he’s going to be showing up in this series yet. Just add a flashback with Kanan Jarrus, and the whole Rebels crew would have shown up in Ahsoka; and knowing showrunner Dave Filoni, he’s a guy who definitely loves his fanservice.
After a divisive reception of Mando 3 and Secret Invasion, Disney+ has been having a tough time this year when it comes to their streaming properties. Hopefully Ahsoka will manage to get them out of their slump.
Ahsoka gets a 2-episode premiere on Disney+ this Aug. 23.
