If the Kessel Run Transmissions YouTube channel is any authority, Ahsoka Tano might have some pretty familiar backup in her Disney+ series. According to this rumor, Ahsoka will expand on Star Wars Rebels' ending, which shows that the powerful Mandalorian rebel Sabine Wren joins forces with Ahsoka, and the pair embark on a quest to locate the Jedi Ezra Bridger (voiced by Taylor Gray). In fact, the channel also claimed that Ahsoka's upcoming series will essentially double as a sequel to Rebels.
While Ahsoka tag-teaming with a skilled Mandalorian warrior somewhat clashes with the events of The Mandalorian – which shows Ahsoka hanging out on Corvus by herself, and recruiting Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) as her sidekick to defeat Magistrate Morgan Elspeth (Diana Lee Inosanto) – it is an interesting possibility. Sabine is a cool, sarcastic character with a visually impressive customized armor and a bit of an attitude. As such, she would be an extremely on-brand figure for a Disney+ Star Wars show, as well as a fitting partner for the more stoic Ahsoka.
What's more, Sabine's voice actress Tiya Sircar has made it clear that she's ready to reprise the role in the flesh if Disney+ comes calling. On December 7, 2020, a fan on Twitter asked Sircar if she'd be willing to cut and dye her hair to match Sabine's signature purple hairstyle. Sircar promptly retweeted the query and answered it in a very decisive manner: “To play Sabine? IN. A. HEARTBEAT.”
It seems like Sabine joining the Ahsoka series would not only make sense, but also be super easy with regard to securing an actor to play her in live action. However, what's complicating things is, well, the fact that this chatter is totally unconfirmed.
