Sabine Actress Says Star Wars Rebels Unnecessary to Understand Ahsoka

After making her live-action debut in The Mandalorian, Ahsoka is set to have her own spinoff series on Disney+ with herself in the spotlight. Besides Rosario Dawson, Natasha Liy Bordizzo has been cast to play the live-action Sabine Wren from Rebels, but even if the show has legacy characters, she says you don’t have to do your Star Wars homework to enjoy the series.

Talking to Empire (via ScreenRant), Bordizzo explains, “A lot of people have not seen Rebels… It’s great for them to have seen it, but we’ve got a standalone chapter as it is.”

While this series is expected to have a story focused on Ahsoka, the inclusion of Sabine makes me think that we could have some more references to The Mandalorian. After all, Sabine herself is Mandalorian royalty, and it was her that gave Bo-Katan the darksaber before it found its way to Moff Gideon.

Hopefully the series will find a way to re-introduce Sabine as a character without the need to check out Rebels. After the whole thing with Cad Bane in The Book of Boba Fett, some fans have realized that it’s more important to establish characters within a season, rather than just have them show up and be recognized by fans who have watched the other material. So odd how they could pull that off with Black Krrsantan and not with a character as popular as Bane.

We don’t know what the Ahsoka series could be about yet, but we do know that she’s on the search for Thrawn. It’s also possible we’ll see the live-action version of Ezra Bridger on the show, seeing as the Rebels finale did have him blasting off to nowhere with Thrawn beside him.

No release date has been set for Ahsoka yet, but you can catch her in The Book of Boba Fett now streaming on Disney+.
