Ahsoka star Natasha Liu Bordizzo shares a sweet post celebrating her Star Wars journey as the live-action Mandalorian warrior Sabine Wren.
Ahsoka star Natasha Liu Bordizzo takes to social media to celebrate her Star Wars journey as the live-action Sabine Wren. Ahsoka Tano has been a part of the long-running science-fiction franchise since her debut with the animated film Star Wars: The Clones Wars. Although initially derided by the audience, Anakin Skywalker’s youthful and rambunctious Jedi padawan quickly became a fan-favorite as she evolved over the next decade into a far more nuanced character, eventually becoming instrumental in the Alliance to Restore the Republic following the Galactic Empire’s rise to power. Star Wars Rebels saw Ahsoka teaming up with the likes of Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, Hera Syndulla, and the artistic and capable Mandalorian warrior, Sabine Wren.
As the Star Wars franchise began to shift to Disney+ with The Mandalorian, Ahsoka also made the jump to live-action with Rosario Dawson portraying the hero in two episodes of The Mandalorian season 2 and on an episode of The Book of Boba Fett. Bordizzo will join Dawson in Ahsoka, an upcoming live-action series that aims to continue the story of Star Wars Rebels following the animated show’s thrilling cliffhanger ending. Rounding out the cast is Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, Eman Esfandi as Ezra Bridger, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead in an undisclosed role.
Bordizzo now takes to Instagram to celebrate her journey as Sabine Wren in the highly-anticipated Star Wars live-action series, Ahsoka. In the post, the actor shares art of Sabine along with a compelling message to her audience expressing her thoughts on the power of storytelling. Check out Bordizzo’s post above.
How Sabine Wren Returns For Ahsoka
Star Wars Rebels concluded with Ezra Bridger sacrificing himself for his home world of Lothal by summoning the assistance of the interstellar creatures known as the Purrgil to transport Grand Admiral Thrawn to unknown space. Right before he leaves, he tells Sabine that he’s counting on her. However, the meaning of his message remained a mystery to her for years. After protecting Lothal throughout the final years of the Rebellion, Sabine comes to believe that Ezra was instructing her to come find him. The Rebels series finale sees Sabine depart with Ahsoka to search for the young Jedi.
With Ahsoka’s first live-action episode on The Mandalorian focused on her desire to find Thrawn, Sabine will likely be the titular’s character main partner in the Ahsoka series. However, many have speculated that Bordizzo’s first appearance as the character will come in The Mandalorian season 3 as the season may focus on the reclamation of Mandalore. As Sabine was once the wielder of the Darksaber, giving it to Bo-Katan Kryze before she lost it to Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), The Mandalorian season 3 might find Sabine return to her home world in aid of Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal). However, with Ahsoka set to premiere next year, it might be a while longer before Bordizzo suits up in her Mandalorian armor.
