Rebels will return later this month with ‘A Princess on Lothal’ – featuring Star Wars’ number one princess, Leia Organa herself.
“We thought we had an opportunity to show her learning to be a leader, experimenting with the personality that becomes the stronger more resolute character you see in A New Hope,” Dave Filoni told TV Insider. “One of the complex challenges of depicting Leia in Rebels is that we have to remind the audience that at this point she is part of the Empire. She doesn’t believe in the Empire, but she is acting the part, almost a double agent.”
Julie Dolan (Star Wars: Uprising) will voice Leia.
Lucasfilm has released a clip:
‘A Princess in Lothal’ airs Wednesday, January 20 at 9:00 P.M. on Disney XD.
