Sarah Michelle Gellar To Join Season Two of STAR WARS REBELS
It’s just been two full days of Star Wars Rebels news/excitement and it seems to just keep coming in. Today has brought us the news that actress Sarah Michelle Gellar will be joining season two of Star Wars Rebels. Gellar’s role will be recurring, but other than that, we don’t have any information as to what she’ll be bringing to Rebels. The speculation among the fandom is ranging far and wide. Again, more excitement to look forward to as season two slowly gets revealed more and more, bit by bit.
In the hours after the “Star Wars Rebels” season finale aired on Disney XD, its executive producer/supervising director Dave Filoni revealed that actress Sarah Michelle Gellar (“The Crazy Ones,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) will join the voice cast in a recurring role for season two of the animated series. Filoni discussed the casting news with advertising clients convened at Lucasfilm’s San Francisco headquarters for Disney Media Sales and Marketing’s presentations.
Filoni said, “We’re thrilled to have Sarah Michelle Gellar on board for season two. She is a true ‘Star Wars Rebels’ fan and her passion undoubtedly comes through in the voice recording sessions.”
Sarah Michelle Gellar will join the talented voice cast that includes her husband Freddie Prinze Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Tiya Sircar, Taylor Gray and David Oyelowo.
All of this is too exciting! I seriously cannot wait for season two of Star Wars Rebels and am insanely jealous of everyone attending Celebration where the season two premiere is set to debut. Ahhh.
Are you excited for this addition to the Rebels cast?
