Over the summer we were able to see the first two episodes to start off Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels. Now it’s just a week away until the kick off to the rest of the season. News about second season mentioned that Sarah Michelle Gellar would be playing one of the characters in season 2, but the role was kept secret. Last season, we saw the death of The Inquisitor but we soon expected his role to be replaced, but by another Inquisitor known as The Seventh Sister. If you haven’t guessed it already, she will be taking on the role of the villain of season 2.
“I may be number seven,” Gellar told Buzzfeed, “But I’m pretty much number one.”
So now that Ahsoka has joined up with the cast, we see that Darth Vader will want to track her down and stomp down the rebellion before it gets any further. So another Inquisitor is on the prowl.
My character believes that Ahsoka is back, and she is trying to track down Ahsoka as well as the rebels. And just kill them all! She definitely plays cat and mouse with Kanan. All Inquisitors want to mess with Jedi — you know, that’s why we’re put on this Earth. Galaxy, I should say.
Not only will she be voice acting the character, the Seventh Sister will have some of her traits.
I didn’t get to see the design before I went into the booth. And I think sometimes that’s actually better, because they would record my mannerisms. Sometimes when I would get into character, I would do certain things with my hands, and then a couple weeks later, I would see that in the drawing. They sort of reflect and mirror each other.
What’s great about Rebels is, it’s a family show. You have these great female characters, in Hera and Sabine. They have their own stories and their own powers. They’re different, they’re cool, and they fight for good, which of course ultimately is what you want your children to do.
I’m now part of the lore and legend of Star Wars. That’s what people dream of. The same way that I still talk about the original movies — that I’m now part of the story of Star Wars — it’s really special.
So season 2 starts on October 14th and the hunt continues! Watch the trailer below!
The new film is to be released on December 17th!
