Star Wars Rebels - Season 3, Episode 7 //
Imperial Super Commandos Episode Guide
In this installment of Rebels Recon, we take a look at the Star Wars Rebels episode "Imperial Super Commandos," in which Sabine, Fenn Rau, Ezra, and Chopper clash with Imperial Super Commandos -- Mandalorians loyal to the Empire. Host Andi Gutierrez sits down with the show's creators and stars, including Pablo Hidalgo, Taylor Gray, Kilian Plunkett, and more to discuss the making of the episode.
Mandalorian warriors loyal to the Empire, Imperial Super Commandos were deadly and efficient enforcers. Led by Gar Saxon, the Imperial Super Commandos’ armor was a distinctive and streamlined white, and their masterful combat abilities were eclipsed only by their ruthlessness. Under orders of the Empire, they destroyed the Protectors of Concord Dawn with no mercy, and sought to do the same to their missing leader Fenn Rau and any rebel opposition.
Veteran of the Clone Wars and a respected warrior, Fenn Rau led the Protectors of Concord Dawn with a combination of honor and ruthlessness. During the Clone Wars, he served as a flight instructor for the clone army and fought in many clashes, including the Battle of Mygeeto. After the rise of the Empire, however, he accepted payment to act in service of the Imperials. It was not until he met with -- and was captured by -- the Ghost crew's Kanan and Sabine that he came to align with the rebels.
Sabine Wren was a Mandalorian warrior, explosives expert, and graffiti artist -- qualities that came in handy as one of the first rebels against the Empire. Part of the Ghost crew, Sabine used her gift for bomb-making to great effect against the Empire, and would often mark her work with spray-paint tags. Her classic Mandalorian armor was notable for incorporating her own custom stylings, reflecting her creative-meets-rebellious spirit.
