Sasha Banks Rumoured To Play STAR WARS REBELS Character Sabine Wren In THE MANDALORIAN Season 2
Sabine Wren from Star Wars Rebels will reportedly make her live-action debut in the second season of Disney+ series The Mandalorian alongside Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex.
Last month, the news broke that Ahsoka Tano will feature in the second season of live-action Disney+ series The Mandalorian — more on that here. She's the main character of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and, what's more, it was more recently reported that she won't be the only fan-favourite character from the animated series to feature in The Mandalorian Season 2.
While it's said that Rosario Dawson will play Ahsoka, Temuera Morrison will reportedly return to the "galaxy far, far away" in order to play both Boba Fett and Captain Rex — find out more on that here. Well, there's even more to all of this. Two reputable sources, Noah Outlaw of Kessel Run Transmissions and Skyler Shuler of The DisInsider, suggest that Sabine Wren will also appear.
What's more, according to the latter of the insiders, WWE Superstar Sasha Banks is involved with the second season of the live-action series and will more likely than not be playing Sabine Wren. They both notably don purple hair, of course, so it only makes sense. You can check out both Outlaw and Shuler's tweets on that matter below.
It makes sense that Ahsoka Tano would be accompanied by Sabine Wren since we last saw the pair together at the end of Star Wars Rebels about to embark together. The pair were presumably heading off in search of Ezra Bridger. That journey could totally lead them to crossing paths with another Mandalorian.
Got my female wrestlers confused, LOL. Sasha Banks has a role in THE MANDALORIAN, so now, the Sabine rumor makes a little more sense. pic.twitter.com/RsUdzOHSeT— Skyler Shuler (@SkylerShuler) May 10, 2020
