Sabine Wren, the explosive expert and Mandalorian rebel, became a fan-favorite character in the animated series, “Star Wars Rebels.” With her expected appearance in the upcoming “Ahsoka” series on Disney+, many fans are left wondering what happened to Sabine Wren in the years that passed between “Rebels” and “Ahsoka”.
End of Rebels
At the end of “Star Wars Rebels,” which concludes in 1 BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin), Sabine is seen on Lothal, protecting the planet following the presumed death of her friend and fellow Ghost crew member, Ezra Bridger. Ezra disappeared during the liberation of Lothal, a heroic act that saw him and Grand Admiral Thrawn whisked away to an unknown part of the galaxy by Purrgil, space-dwelling creatures that travel in hyperspace.
Sabine stayed on Lothal for a number of years, keeping a promise she made to Ezra. During this time, she became a guardian of the planet and continued her fight against the Empire. Sabine remained on Lothal until after the Battle of Endor, which occurred in 4 ABY (After the Battle of Yavin) and marked the fall of the Galactic Empire.
Journey to Find Ezra
In the epilogue of “Rebels,” set sometime after the Battle of Endor, Sabine joins Ahsoka Tano on a new mission: to find Ezra Bridger. The series ends on this note, and what happens next has yet to be explored canonically. This crucial narrative thread is expected to be picked up in the “Ahsoka” series.
Speculations for the “Ahsoka” Series
The “Ahsoka” series is set to take place around 9 ABY, approximately 15 years after the events of “Rebels.” What transpired during this time period remains largely unknown. It’s expected that Sabine and Ahsoka embarked on their search for Ezra, but the details of this journey have yet to be revealed.
It’s also uncertain what role Sabine played in the events of the original trilogy. While she was a significant figure in the early Rebel Alliance, her involvement in major battles like Yavin, Hoth, or Endor is not confirmed.
The story of Sabine Wren between the end of “Star Wars Rebels” and the start of “Ahsoka” is a tantalizing mystery waiting to be unveiled in the upcoming series. All signs point to her taking an active role in the search for Ezra Bridger, but the details of this journey are a closely guarded secret, set to be unraveled when “Ahsoka” premieres on Disney+.
