Star Wars Rebels Introduces Sabine

“Star Wars Rebels” has revealed its first female character, a Mandalorian (Boba Fett’s species) named Sabine. She’s said to be a key member of the Ghost crew and, as you can see in the video below, she’s especially fond of blowing things up and tagging her work with graffiti. She is said to have a great understanding of weapons and combat like few others, and has turned against the Empire.

“She is spunky, she’s feisty, she’s got a little bit of attitude,” says actress Tiya Sircar, who is voicing the character, “…I think she’s kind of an inspiration.”

Additionally, Sabine is an artist, which is reflected in her hair, personalized armor, and graffiti calling cards. After the Ghost crew hits the Empire, Sabine makes sure the Empire knows who did it. Concept artist Amy Beth Christenson says that the “Star Wars Rebels” animation team has created a library of graffiti tags for Sabine, and is constantly adding to it.

Set between the events of "Episode III" and "IV" — an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen – "Star Wars Rebels" takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.

The show will be produced by Lucasfilm Animation, featuring many of the key talents that made "Star Wars: The Clone Wars." "Star Wars Rebels" is scheduled to premiere this fall as a one hour special on Disney Channel and will be followed by the series on Disney XD.
