Natasha Liu Bordizzo (Crazy About You) will star opposite Rosario Dawson in the upcoming Disney+ series Star Wars: Ahsoka as Sabine Wren.

According to Deadline Bordizzo will play the live-action version of Sabine Wren, the character making the jump from the Star Wars: Rebels animated series to appear alongside Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano. Dawson first appeared in live-action form in a second season episode of The Mandalorian.

Ahsoka

In Star Wars: Rebels, Tiya Sircar was the voice of Sabine Wren, a young Mandalorian warrior, ex-Imperial academy cadet, and a former bounty hunter with expert knowledge of weapons and explosives. At the climax of the show, Ahsoka and Wren set out together to find Ezra Bridger.

The ever-reliable Wookiepedia has a more detailed back story. Sabine Wren was a human female Mandalorian warrior and revolutionary leader during the early rebellion against the Galactic Empire. Her artistry during the rebellion inspired the symbol of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and her claim over the ancient Mandalorian weapon known as the Darksaber made her a symbol to Clan Wren and the hopes of freeing her people’s homeworld of Mandalore from the rule of the Empire.

Ahsoka

Prior to becoming a rebel, Wren was a cadet at the Imperial Academy of Mandalore. She built weapons she believed would be used for peace but were instead used against her family and her people. Wracked with guilt, Wren left Mandalore and was branded a traitor by the Empire

Dave Filoni writes and executive produces the new series, alongside producing partner and The Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau. Ahsoka is said to start production in March and it is rumored that Hayden Christensen will appear in some form as Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader. The relationship between Ahsoka and Anakin, including as Darth Vader, is central to the character of Tano.

Star Wars: Ahsoka was announced on December 10, 2020. It will air on Disney+ towards the end of 2022 and is aid to culminate in a crossover event with The Mandalorian and Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic. That last show was in some doubt due to the controversial decision not to renew Gina Carano’s contract as Cara Dune.
