The next episode of Star Wars Rebels should be pretty interesting and exciting. It’s a new episode featuring Mandalorians. You know Mandalorians? They wear the really cool armor and helmets that made Boba Fett one of the Star Wars franchise’s most popular characters. Star Wars Rebels character Sabine also happens to be a Mandalorian. In fact, this new episode, “The Protector of Concord Dawn,” will be a new episode focusing on her backstory. You can check out a new clip and photo stills from the episode (Courtesy of Disney XD and Lucasfilm) below.
In “The Protector of Concord Dawn,” the heroes of the spaceship Ghost need some new hyperspace routes as the Empire closes in. However, the Rebel crew finds a new shortcut near the Concord Dawn system. However, the crew has to gain permission from the leader of Concord Dawn, a Mandalorian protector named Fenn Rau. This could be quite a challenging task for the heroes. According to Disney XD, the episode will showcase more of Sabine’s mysterious backstory as a member of the House of Vizsla.
In the new clip, Sabine is cornered by a group of armed Mandalorians and forced to reveal her parentage. Sabine drops that she’s Clan Wren, House Vizsla. However, the Mandalorian troopers are surprised by this revelation, remarking that she’s “Deathwatch” and a “traitor.” Sabine claims that she’s not Deathwatch, but her mother was. She also invokes the code to seek justice by single combat. Learning more about Sabine is getting more interesting by the minute.
Star Wars Rebels’ new episode, “The Protector of Concord Dawn,” airs on January 27 at 9:00 pm ET/PT on Disney XD.
