Just after the season finale of Star Wars Rebels wrapped up the first season on Disney XD, exec producer/supervising director Dave Filoni revealed that actress Sarah Michelle Gellar (The Crazy Ones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) will be joining the show’s voice cast in a recurring role for season two.
Gellar will join a cast which already includes her husband, Freddie Prinze Jr., as well as Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Tiya Sircar, Taylor Gray and David Oyelowo. Star Wars Rebels has reached over 49 million viewers.
The CG series takes place between the events of Star Wars episodes III and IV, and follows the motley crew of the starship Ghost as they face off against colorful adversaries and embark on thrilling adventures. The season one finale revealed the identity of Fulcrum to be Ahosoka Tano — who first appeared in the Clone Wars animated universe. Season two will feature recurring appearances by Tano and Darth Vader.
