Rebels Adds Rogue One and Clone Wars' Saw Gerrera

Rebels Adds Rogue One and Clone Wars’ Saw Gerrera

Saw Gerrera who is one of the Rogue One’s most important characters,  is reportedly heading to Star Wars Rebels.

The RebelsReactions Twitter account spotted a poster for Rebels at Toys R Us. The poster features Gerrera and some of the lines the character says in the final Rogue One trailer, “Save the Rebellion. Save the dream.”

That is how Gerrera made his debut on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated show. He’s played by Forest Whitaker in Rogue One, and is the first Star Wars character from a show to make a transition into a live-action film.

Whether Gerrera will regularly show up on Rebels, or if he’ll only make a brief appearance, we don’t know. It’s also important to note that Rebels takes place several years before the events of Rogue One.

Star Wars Rebels airs Saturdays on Disney XD, and the show will return January 7, 2017.
