Star Wars: Ahsoka Trailer Just Hinted a Big Jedi Twist Is on the Way

The new Ahsoka trailer not only gives us Lars Mikkelsen as Thrawn but also teases there’s more to Sabine Wren’s story than meets the eye. Could she be Force sensitive and on her way to becoming a Jedi?

The latest trailer for the Disney+ series Ahsoka just gave us a lot to be excited about: a full look at Lars Mikkelson as a live-action Grand Admiral Thrawn, hints that the mysterious Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson) also knew Anakin Skywalker, another glimpse of our favorite chaotic droid Chopper, and a lot of lightsaber action. Plus, we get a bit more time with Mary Elizabeth Winstead as General Hera Syndulla, as she tries to convince Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly) and the New Republic to aid her in the fight against the Imperial Remnant.

But all of those moments are eclipsed by one of the most unexpected twists yet revealed by the show’s marketing. In the new trailer, fan-favorite Mandalorian warrior Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo) calls Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson) “master,” and later we see her dueling Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakhno) with a lightsaber, implying that for a time after Rebels, Ahsoka trained Sabine in the ways of the Jedi in Ezra Bridger’s (Eman Esfandi) absence.

Before we dig into what this all might mean, check out the trailer below if you haven’t already…

Now, longtime Rebels fans know that this isn’t the first time Sabine has trained under a Jedi – Ezra and his own master Kanan Jarrus helped her learn how to wield the Darksaber when the mythical blade came into her possession on the animated series. Of course, she later gifted that Mandalorian weapon to Bo-Katan, who we know then lost it to Moff Gideon during the Empire’s occupation of Mandalore. The Darksaber was ultimately destroyed in The Mandalorian season 3 finale, but the new Ahsoka trailer reveals that Sabine’s skill with blades has only grown since we last saw her on Rebels.
