When we left off in Star Wars Rebels, Sabine had finally revealed her backstory to the crew, and had learned how to wield the darksaber. That ancient black lightsaber belonged to her ancestory, the first Mandalorian Jedi, and was a symbol of uniting power for the Mandalorian people for generations, and now it’s in the possession of Sabine Wren. In the return of the series this Saturday Februay 18 at 8:30 p.m. on Disney XD, Sabine takes the darksaber back to her people to recruit them to the Rebel cause. That means we’re going to Mandalore, right? Not so fast…
“We might be going somewhere unexpected,” actress Tiya Sircar, the voice of Sabine, teased to ComicBook.com. She was checking with Lucasfilm PR about whether it was too much of a tease, but after being assured she could say it, added, “Where we’re going might not be where you think we’re going.”
Fans were assuming that the crew of the Ghost was heading to Mandalore, the traditional seat of power of the Mandalorian people, but it sounds like we’ll be going to another one of their planets. That could have something to do with the devastating Imperial weapon that Sabine revealed she helped design, and was turned on her people. It’s interesting to see more of the former Mandalorian empire, one of the few individual cultures that’s not a crime family that actually expanded out into other planets and even systems. We’ve seen the decimated Concord Dawn, of course, and saw Mandalore and the moon Concordia on Star Wars: The Clone Wars. So is another location coming? It sure sounds like it.

Chopper is the grumpy, lazy, yet ultimately heroic astromech droid of the upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated series — and Lucasfilm has brought him to life. In this new video, go behind the scenes to see how a fully functioning Chopper was designed, built, and finally, introduced to his creators and to the world.
We got our first look at the Inquisitor Lightsaber at New York Toy Fair in February. Today, we have a look at the final packaged shot. Look for this to hit the shelves soon!
Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. Ezra, a Force-sensitive intergalactic con artist and Chopper, a cobbled-together astromech droid with an attitude find themselves thrown into a much larger world of adventure and danger, as the Empire flexes their authority over their home world, Lothal.
Gentle Giant Ltd. is proud to bring you the first new character from the highly anticipated new animated series, Star Wars Rebels – Ezra and Chopper! Crafted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. in the bold style of the exciting animated series, Star Wars Rebels, the Ezra and Chopper Maquette is as screen accurate as you can get! From the paint scheme on Ezra’s pilot helmet to the subtle shades of Chopper’s various reassembled parts, no detail has been overlooked. Each hand-painted piece has been cast in high-quality polystone and comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity. The new generation of Rebels have arrived!
