Star Wars Rebels’ resident explosives expert Sabine Wren (Tiya Sircar) gets to flex her Mandalorian muscles in the next installment of the animated series. The Empire is showing up around the Outer Rim, so the rebels are forced to search for new hyperspace routes. One promising shortcut takes the rebels by the Concord Dawn system. Unfortunately, the leader of Concord Dawn—Fenn Rau—isn’t exactly eager to lend a helping hand. I mean, Mandalorians aren’t exactly known for being friendly and welcoming.
But don’t worry. That’s where Sabine comes in. As you can see in our exclusive clip, she doesn’t hesitate to engage in a showdown with Fenn Rau in order to get what they need… even if Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.) doesn’t agree with her methods. A member of House Vizsla (yes, those Vizslas), Sabine is feisty and determined. Sabine’s interaction with Fenn Rau will uncover more about her mysterious backstory.
We’re also excited to confirm the voice of Fenn Rau is none other than Kevin McKidd. You may know him as Dr. Owen Hunt from Grey’s Anatomy, but he’s also voiced characters such as Lord MacGuffin in Brave and Reptillus Maximus in Toy Story That Time Forgot. He’s taken his first step into a larger world by voicing a character in the Star Wars universe.
Are you excited to learn more about Sabine’s Mandalorian history? Let me know in the comments.
“The Protector of Concord Dawn” will air on Wednesday, January 27, at 9p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD.
