The Ahsoka Series Will Also Feature Sabine Wren in Live-Action (Rebels Sequel!)

For now, What If …? is focusing on characters who have already appeared in live-action. But animation history has noteworthy examples of popular characters who appeared in animation first before making it big in live-action. Harley Quinn debuted in the 1990s Batman animated series decades before debuting in Suicide Squad, while Ahsoka Tano, the fan-favorite Jedi, appeared in animation in 2008 before Rosario Dawson made the jump to live action in The Mandalorian season two. Now, Dawson is leading a live-action Ahsoka spinoff for Disney+, with sources saying Lucasfilm is looking for an actress to star opposite Dawson as Mandalorian warrior Sabine Wren.

It's long been rumored that the Ahsoka series will be a sequel to Rebels, picking up where that series ended 5 years after ROTJ (Ahsoka's episode in Mando is set BEFORE the ending of Rebels) with live-action Ezra and Thrawn, and this seems to be pointing to that if they're doing Sabine as well. They also just showed Hera's origin in Bad Batch.

I don't think I ever watched the end of Rebels for some reason. My mind is completely blown by the thought it ended 5 years after ROTJ.

Anyway, I can get excited for a live action Ahsoka episode.

But what a shame they didn't think of all these stories before the last trilogy. So much potential lost in storylines,

I think the Live action SW tv shows have been pretty good.

I liked when they had Katie Stakof playing her voiced character in the Mandalorian.

There's a time jump at the end. Ezra and Thrawn vanish into a portal. Then it jumps to 5 years after ROTJ. Hera has a half-human kid (Kanan's son) while robed Ahsoka and Sabine are searching for Ezra.

The Ahsoka episode of Mando is set before that.

I was completely unaware but will be adding it to the watch list now that I know. Thanks for that.
