Star Wars Rebels: new clip of Forest Whitaker's Saw Gerrera


It’s official – Forest Whitaker will reprise his Rogue One role of Saw Gerrera in an upcoming episode of Star Wars Rebels, the Disney XD animated show which is set a couple of years before Gareth Edwards’ Death-Star-plans-themed ‘Star Wars Story’ movie. 

Here’s the latest clip, followed by the featurette that broke the news…

Star Wars Rebels season 3 is on a break now, and Whitaker will appear in its first episode back after Christmas and New Year. That episode will air on Saturday the 7th of January 2017, and it’s a two-part special entitled Ghosts Of Geonosis.

We’ve also seen this poster, which got the ‘Saw Gerrera is in Rebels‘ story started a few days before the official announcement…

And Disney XD’s press team have sent us this picture…

Saw Gerrera is a rebel insurgent who is sometimes termed a terrorist due to the extreme nature of his acts against the Empire. He was created by George Lucas for his never-actually-made live action TV series Underworld. He eventually showed up on screen in season 5 of The Clone Wars, where he was voiced by Andrew Kishino. And most of you will know by now that Forest Whitaker made his debut as Saw Gerrera in Rogue One. 

Since the current stories of Rebels take place some time before Rogue One, perhaps we’ll see here how Saw ended up running his resistance on Jedha, and why he needed to get robot legs at some point after appearing in The Clone Wars.

We’ve got some extra info on page 2 of this article, and we’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
