Tales From The Geek Side: Star Wars Rebel’s Sabine

tftgsLucasfilm has introduced exclusively through The Hollywood Reporter the latest character from Star Wars Rebels, Sabine, the weapons expert. Tiya Sircar will lend her voice to the character, the first female to be revealed from the animated series.

Who is Sabine? She is a Mandalorian, and is described as “sassy,” “spunky,” “feisty” and has “a little bit of attitude.” She has an expert’s knowledge of weapons and arms, with an affinity for blowing things up. “She does it with flair,” Sircar says of Sabine, who also moonlights as a graffiti artist.

“She’s definitely one who’s turned against the Empire and that’s going to be to the Rebels’ benefit,” as executive producer Dave Filoni hints in the behind-the-scenes featurette above. As Joel Aron, CG supervisor of lighting and FX, says, “She’s adding something that we haven’t really seen before in the Star Wars universe. You have a character that is expressively creative through art — whether it’s the color of her hair or what she’s done to her armor.”
