One of my favorite tv shows of the last year, The Mandalorian, returns to Disney+ this Friday. As a lead up to the show, I have re-watched Season 1 (it is at least my fourth re-watch, and it is still great), but I have not completed my rewatch of Star Wars Rebels. Why Rebels you ask? Because of the Darksaber. (See also, Wookiepedia.) I am really interested in seeing how they tie The Mandalorian in with Dave Filoni’s animated shows. There are already the strong (confirmed?) rumors that Rosario Dawson will be playing Ahsoka Tano and that Katee Sackhoff will be playing Bo-Katan (along with the reports that Timothy Olyphant will be “wearing Boba Fett’s armor” and Temuera Morrison will be playing Boba Fett), so how about we get an appearance from my favorite Rebels character, Sabine Wren. (And, no, I do not think Sasha Banks is Sabine.)
I guess we can all see what happens starting this Friday (October 30) and every Friday through December 18th.
