Who is Sabine Wren? She’s a mainstay of the galaxy far, far away after appearing in animation form before, but now it’s time to learn about the live-action version, too.

When it comes to Star Wars, it can be hard to keep up with all the heroes and villains from the various Star Wars series, never mind the big screen, too. Sabine Wren was already one of the best Star Wars characters after her time in Rebels, but now we met her in live-action as part of the Ahsoka cast, there’s so much more to understand about this hero.

With the Ahsoka release date in the past, we have seen Sabine Wren do some pretty incredible things and prove herself as a Jedi. So, here’s all you need to know about the popular character from a galaxy far, far away.

Who is Sabine Wren?

Sabine Wren is a female Mandalorian warrior and a member of the Spectres crew in Star Wars Rebels. She was also a revolutionary leader during the Rebellion against the Galactic Empire and Ahsoka’s padawan.

Before her days in the Rebellion, Wren was a member of the Imperial Academy of Mandalore, but when she saw the way her planet was decimated by the Galactic Empire, she fled. Wren spent some time as a Star Wars bounty hunter, before being recruited to the crew of the Ghost by Captain Hera Syndulla and the Jedi Kanan Jarrus.

Wren was a keen artist and was even responsible for creating the symbol of the Rebellion. After helping take on the Empire, Wren would later return to Mandalore in an attempt to unite her people.

Sabine Wren and Ezra Bridger’s relationship explained

Sabine Wren and Ezra Bridger were crewmates aboard the Ghost Starship as part of the Rebel group known as the Spectres. Later in life, the two would fall in love and marry.

Despite their happier times on board the Star Wars ship, Sabine and Ezra’s relationship does have its difficulties, too. When the Ghost crew liberated the planet of Lothal, it came at a price, as Ezra disappeared into Hyperspace. After the battle of Jakku, Wren joined forces with Ahsoka Tano to hunt for Ezra Bridger, and by the end of the new Disney Plus show, the two were reunited in spectacular fashion.

We will have to wait for the Ahsoka season 2 release date to see what the pair get up to next, but we are sure there is plenty more of their story still to be told.

Sabine Wren in Ahsoka explained

Sabine Wren is a main player in the new Ahsoka series. And by the end of the show, we see her reunited with both the titular character, and her old friend, Ezra Bridger, as well as Sabine displaying some amazing Jedi skills.

Sabine and Ahsoka get off to a rocky start. Sabine feels abandoned and unmotivated, and Ahsoka is hesitant to involve her in her mission to stomp out Grand Admiral Thrawn‘s return, but the pair eventually see eye-to-eye and pick up where they left off, with Sabine resuming her training under Ahsoka’s tutelage.

Eventually, Sabine shows just how handy she is with a lightsaber, as well as using a very powerful force push, and displays incredible connection to the Force by speaking to Ahsoka from the other side of the galaxy. If the Ahsoka series was good for one thing, it was giving Sabine a great character arc, so for that we are thankful. For more on the show, here’s our Ahsoka episode 8 recap.

Sabine Wren in Ahsoka

Sabine Wren’s role in Mandalore explained

Sabine Wren was instrumental in showing the Mandalore people the atrocities of the Empire, and she played a big part in the Mandalorian Civil War, too.

Wren took possession of the Darksaber in 2BBY and though initially reluctant to use it, she wielded the legendary weapon to add credence to her attempts to unite the Mandalore people.

It was Wren who helped to kill Gar Saxon, the Imperial Viceroy of Mandalore, and the young warrior who also fought alongside her family during the Mandalorian Civil War.

Sabine Wren’s powers explained

Sabine is Force-sensitive but is not a natural learner and struggles with her training in Ahsoka. She does have some capability with a lightsaber and is learning to get better at telekinesis.

In Ahsoka, we initially see Sabine having difficulty moving small objects, having awareness of her surroundings, and winning lightsaber battles. This all makes sense given there has been a years’ long gap in her training. But, by the time we reach the finale of the series, Sabine shows she has come very far, very quickly, and could well become one of the most powerful Jedi in the galaxy if she continues her training.

That’s all you need to know about Sabine Wren. Until then, why not learn about when Ahsoka takes place, or what Thrawn’s plan is? If you really want to get into the nitty gritty of the show, here are 10 Easter eggs you missed in Ahsoka episode 8.
