People are already excited about Ahsoka since the upcoming Star Wars series will give a few beloved animated characters their live-action debut. But what can we expect when the likes of Sabine Wren finally make the big jump into live-action? Natasha Liu Bordizzo is hyping up the Star Wars Rebels character's Disney+ debut and sharing interesting details about Sabine's story arc!
Earlier this year, it was officially confirmed that Natasha Liu Bordizzo had been cast as Sabine Wren in Ahsoka (her casting was rumored about a year before the official announcement). Since then, Bordizzo has been vocal about her excitement and is more than happy to talk about Sabine's future in the Mandalorian spin-off show.
“Sabine is so fearless and brave, with so much grace, but she still has flaws… she’s not perfect, she’s on her journey, she’s making mistakes. And it’s very high stakes in this galactic war, to make mistakes,” Bordizzo said.
Fans who have seen Star Wars Rebels are already well aware of Sabine's nuances but if you haven't seen the animated series, Bordizzo assures that you'll still understand just what is happening right away. (Still, we urge you to fix that right away, it's an impressive show)
“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,” she said.
For now, Bordizzo is the only other cast member whose role is confirmed for Ahsoka aside from Rosario Dawson. However, there is a possibility we'll get to meet who will play Hera Syndulla and Ezra Bridger soon. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
Ahsoka has not yet been given an official release date but is set to premiere on Disney+ next year.
