The finale of Star Wars Rebels season two aired Wednesday and it’s almost certainly knocked your socks off. We’ll have much, much more on that Thursday morning but, in the meantime, we have some huge news about season three.
Speaking to io9, Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni revealed that Sabine Wren, the artistic, demolitions expert Mandalorian is going to get a much more prominent role in season three.
“We are going to delve a bit more into things with the Mandalorians and Sabine’s story,” Filoni said. “Sabine’s story will grow greatly in importance in the third season and she kind of comes up to stand next to Ezra as far as being an important player on the show. And isn’t as much a supporting character which I think is a great transition for her as a character.”
One of the best episodes this season was about Sabine’s backstory and seeing more of her next year sounds amazing to us.
And don’t forget to check back Thursday morning for more from Filoni on the finale, including info on Ahsoka Tano, Darth Vader, Ezra, Darth Maul and much much more.
