‘Star Wars Rebels’ Character Reveal: Meet Mandalorian Graffiti Artist Sabine!
For weeks now we’ve been meeting the cast of ‘Star Wars Rebels,’ particularly after the the LEGO sets gave away the basic appearances of our remaining “Ghost” crew, yet here’s one we haven’t yet seen. Meet Sabine, a Mandalorian explosives expert with a penchant for graffiti and more style than Boba Fett ever dreamed of!
From The Hollywood Reporter, the latest (and first female) ‘Star Wars Rebels’ character displays a knack for art, something not generally seen within the ‘Star Wars’ world. In addition to customizing her hair, clothes and Mandalorian armor, Sabine (voiced by Tiya Sircar) frequently tags both the Ghost ship as well as the ‘Rebels’ work, leaving a signature of sorts for the Empire to find.
Here’s everything we know from the official ‘Star Wars Rebels’ logline:
‘Star Wars Rebels’ continues the epic tradition of the legendary ‘Star Wars’ saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people.
But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship “Ghost.” Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes.
We’ve already met the brutish and brilliant Zeb (Steve Blum), “cowboy Jedi” Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.) and the Luke Skywalker-esque Ezra Bridger (Noah Taylor), along with the crew’s feisty droid Chopper, with at least one or two characters to go. We previously heard ‘The Butler’ star David Oyelowo and Vanessa Marshall were at least on the short list, as well. Picking up where the now-canceled ‘Clone Wars‘ left off, ‘Star Wars Rebels’ will also feature screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg (‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘Elysium‘), who’s writing the first episode, on the creative side.
‘Star Wars Rebels’ will premiere with an hourlong special this fall on The Disney Channel before the series properly continues on Disney XD, so take a look at the latest character reveal above, and stay tuned for the next!
