Sabine Wren is a compelling character introduced in the “Star Wars Rebels” animated series. She is a member of the Ghost crew, a band of rebels fighting against the Empire. Sabine is a Mandalorian, known for her skills as a weapons expert and artist, and she quickly became a fan-favorite character. The question often asked by Star Wars fans is: How old is Sabine Wren?
Sabine Wren in “Star Wars Rebels”
In “Star Wars Rebels,” Sabine is introduced as a 16-year-old Mandalorian. The series takes place five years before the events of “Star Wars: A New Hope.” Sabine’s character was born in the year 21 BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin), which is used as the primary calendar in the Star Wars universe. This makes Sabine approximately two years older than Ezra Bridger, her fellow crewmate on the Ghost.
Throughout the course of the four seasons of “Star Wars Rebels,” Sabine grows not just in age, but also in maturity and leadership. Her journey involves reconnecting with her estranged family, taking up the Darksaber, a symbol of Mandalorian leadership, and playing a critical role in the fight against the Empire.
Sabine Wren in the Upcoming “Ahsoka” Series
With the announcement of the live-action series “Ahsoka,” set to premiere on Disney+ in August 2023, there is much speculation about Sabine’s role in the show. Given that “Ahsoka” takes place around 9 ABY (After the Battle of Yavin), approximately 15 years after the end of “Star Wars Rebels,” this would make Sabine about 31 years old at the time of the series.
The final scene of “Star Wars Rebels” shows an older Sabine joining Ahsoka Tano in a mission to find their lost friend, Ezra Bridger. It’s expected that the “Ahsoka” series will pick up on this plot thread. With the 15-year time jump, viewers can look forward to seeing a matured Sabine, who has had more time to grow as a Mandalorian, a warrior, and a leader.
