Forest Whitaker Returns As Saw Gerrera In This New STAR WARS REBELS Clip And Featurette
We've known for a few days that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story character Saw Gerrera is coming to Star Wars Rebels (a series set years before the events of that movie and A New Hope), but a new featurette has surfaced today which gives us a first look at the younger Rebel and confirms that Forest Whitaker will reprise the role. That's definitely a surprise, but something fans will no doubt greatly appreciate.
Some leaked promo art recently confirmed that Saw Gerrera will appear in Star Wars Rebels, but you can hear Rogue One star Forest Whitaker reprise the role in this action-packed new clip...
After all, it adds a certain level of authenticity having Whitaker return, though the Oscar winner hopefully isn't too expensive or that will limit exactly how much we can expect him to appear here!
For now, he's set to appear in a two-parter titled "Ghosts of Geonosis." Apparently, Star Wars Rebels showrunner Dave Filoni worked alongside Lucasfilm story group chief Kiri Hart and Rogue One director Gareth Edwards to come up with his backstory, while Whitaker was keen to learn more about Saw.
