This Mary Sue should stay where she belongs: in a kiddie animated series.
Why can´t they create some new, more mature characters for live action? Putting every character from the animation into the live action series makes the universe look really small, like a village of 50 people who all know each other and meet each other all the time.
Mandalorian actually made the universe look big and unexplorable by one person because Mando didn´t meet Mandos from other clans until the events of the series, never had met any Force user before he met Grogu.
This is step back to the silly "everyone knows everyone". I don´t like this approach of the SW universe and I absolutely hate the character of Sabine. She is like a fanfiction character created by a 12 years old girl.
I don't get Sabine's character at all. She's supposed to be a Mandalorian, also Expert Weapons user, also Genius Scientific Weapons Engineer, also Imperial Cadet, also a well known Bounty Hunter with connections, also expert sword duelist, also expert hand to hand user capable of beating a Mandalorian Veteran of the Clone Wars Gar Saxon (lmao), Amazing Artist, Demolitions Expert, and also a Rebel....all by the age of what? 14 years old? How could she possibly have done ALL that by her age? It doesn't make sense.
So, Ahsoka is pretty much just a continuation where Rebels left off.
I just re-watched all of Rebels, i either hadn't paid attention to the entire plot when it aired or i've forgotten about it, needed a refresher anyway and this seemed like a good time.
My only real concern is, how do you make a live action continuation of a cartoon, without confusing the people that won't ever bother to watch the cartoons?
All these Cartoon characters practically need to be re-introduced including some kind of origin story in live action to the audience that simply doesn't know them at all.
But Rebels was getting weird, is Ezra like the Beast Master of Jedi? Giant Loth Wolves (want to see THOSE in live action! ...as puppets! not CGI!), Loth Cats, giant Space Whales, he is totally an animal person... i wonder when they find him if they will expand on that. He is totally the type that like rides a Krayt Dragon into Battle to figt a Stardestroyer or something along those lines.
And all the things they pointed out for Mandalorian in that making of stuff, like that Tank that was only a toy before and the Spiders from that concept art, i really thought they were mining long forgotten stuff and "canonizing" it ...but they really already did that in Rebels, even prominently, i did not remember that stuff being in there until the rewatch and i did NOT remember how that show ended, i might have dropped out early or just did not pay that much attention. It's a giant cliffhanger and of course Filoni will continue that story if he has a chance and it looks like he is getting it.
And now i'm calling it that we will get to see at least cameos of Hera, Chopper and Zeb in one or two episodes just to have live action versions of them established.
It also makes a ton more sense to me now that the Logo for Ahsoka has this World between Worlds timetravel pattern stuff painted all over it.
I first thought that pattern might have something to do with the Doomcock rumors that they want to turn the Sequels into an alternate timeline with the "Veil of the Force" and that those patterns were a early hint of that... but after rewatching, yeah well Ahsoka is only alive because of that all, the Emperor already had shot his blue fire stuff through it and knows it exist, so he will keep trying to get control over it and they need to stop that of course and that is just part of her Character now so it makes sense to be there either way, i don't put any money on Doomcock's rumor mill really, but it is interesting that they may do more timetravel shenanigans after all... maybe there is something to it after all... lets wait and see.
TBF i was expecting Sabine in Ahsoka as she left with her to find Ezra. Sabine, Zeb & Chopper being my favourite Rebels characters i want to see them all in the show. They may well all end up in Rangers of the New Republic with Hera if that show ever goes ahead.
I expect there will be people wanting Sabine's voice actress to play her but Sabine is only just about 30 years old by the time of The Mandalorian so the voice actress is 10 years too old to play her & doesn't look young enough (can't think they'd want to waste money on cgi de-aging when they can just cast new) & also unless they race swap Sabine she's wrong there too. So while she could maybe voice her while wearing the helmet she looks nothing like the character so my guess is they will completely recast Sabine & leave Tiya Sircar as the animated version like Ashley is for Ahsoka.
I hate the Rebels show, but I really like some of the characters from it. I'd really like to see Sabine Wren show up in any of the shows like Mandalorian Season 3 with a possible Mandalore plot. In the Book of Boba Fett, also in a Mandalore plot! And last but not least in Ahsoka to help look for Ezra and Thrawn!!!
After canceling Disney + I never finished Rebels buttttt I recently got D+ clearance codes and just finished it...and I'm hype to see how this all ties together in live action especially knowing that Jon and Dave have done such an amazing job bringing animated characters to life in live action. Def hyped.
We unfortunately already have a SW character based on Kathy Kennedy. It's Admiral Holdo. Ugh! The similarities are scarily close.
As for Sabine coming back, that is an already expected & most welcomed sure thing. If Ahsoka is looking for Ezra, Sabine must be right with her for the same goal. Sabine knew Ezra far longer & closer, too. And with the success of all our other Mandalorians, Sabine is the only famous one left to introduce. Had been a massive mistake NOT to bring Sabine in. Especially since it is a female SW character that works.
I'm repeating myself here. I think Jessica Henwick (played Colleen Wing in Iron Fist and Nymeria Sand in Game of Thrones) would be ideal for the role, especially now she's had her hair cut short and dyed blue for the next Matrix movie out next year.
She was in The Force Awakens as a X-Wing pilot called Jessika Pava.
As YouTube is being a pain for posting links, I'll just say: Look up her iMDB page and look at her photo album. There's a pic of her in her Matrix look.
First of all welcome to all of Coach‘s students who happen to drop by we love having you here! I am also a great rebels fan and I like Sabin Wren, but of course Ahsoka is my favorite character in this format and I’m looking forward to all the upcoming live action with all the new characters that were once in this format.I agree with you Coach I don’t think John Faverau or Dave Filoni are going to let us down I’m going to put my faith in what they have for us with the upcoming shows! Hey kids remember encourage your coach to drink a lot of coffee!💖🐻
I liked Sabine in the animated series and her story arc is pretty well written so I think having her as a live action character would work great. Besides, with Ezra coming to live action and Ashoka already having been brought to live action it just makes sense to have some of the main characters from the Rebels series as well. It will definitely be interesting to see where Book of Boba, Mando S3, and the Ashoka series take us. I'm looking forward to it.
Sabine is personally one of my favorite characters. The only other characters in Rebels I liked more than her were Kanan and Thrawn. Sabine's story is so compelling with the inclusion of her clan, the trials with the darksaber, and interacting with another one of my favorites- Bo-Katan. I'm really excited to see live action Sabine and her role with Ahsoka, Thrawn, Ezra, and Mandalore
Sabine is fine, but she is not my favourite. Maybe because i don t care about Mandalorians in this time period. (only Canderous Ordo make my heart beating :D ) Din Djarin is ok, i like Satine and Bo-Katan is fine?
I believe that cast will be good. Jon and Dave are trying fix things
I don't mind Sabine, but they're just going to give her the Ahsoka treatment in using a completely different actress when they've successfully brought in veteran talent who already originated or have worked as those characters before.
The way they should've done Ahsoka was to involve Ashley Eckstein, the actress who voiced Ahsoka in the Clone Wars and Rebels. Whether Ash was the one in the makeup or a stunt-double with her lines dubbed over by Ash is how Ahsoka should've been done. Same goes for Sabine and her voice actress Tiya Sircar. I mean they've been able to get James Earl Jones, Frank Oz, Ian McDiarmid et al back to reprise their characters for voice roles in Rebels alone, Temura Morrison for live-action Boba Fett, and Katee Sackhoff for Bo Katan so why couldn't they do the same with Ahsoka and Eckstein?
This is awesome Coach! I've been saying we've already seen her as the Communications Officer on Moff Gideon's ship. The actress who plays her (Katy O'Brian) has a martial arts background and would be perfect for Sabine Wren. Some think it's a different character since we last see her unconscious on the deck at the end of Episode 16, presumably dead, but I think she's just unconscious and undercover trying to find the location of Thrawn for Ahsoka.
Couch, I would've loved to have you as a History teacher in high school even though Mr. Daughdrill was very close to Sam Kinison's character in "Back to School" with Rodney Dangerfield but without all the profanity, but his love of history and detail were spot on.👍✨
