Saw Gerrera & Mon Mothma Confirmed For ‘Star Wars Rebels’ S4 Return

Star Wars Rebels

Star Wars Rebels Dave Filoni and select members of the voice cast are on hand for the Rebels Season 4 Panel today at Star Wars Celebration Orlando. Joining Filoni on the panel were the show’s principal cast, including Freddie Prinze Jr., Taylor Gray, Vanessa Marshall, Tiya Sircar and Steven Blum. The panel is streaming live now on the Star Wars YouTube Channel.

During the panel, Filoni confirmed a few of the returning guest star characters we will see in the fourth season. First up, he announced that we will be seeing Mon Mothma again. She will once again be voiced by Genevieve O’Reilly, who pitch-perfectly played the character in live-action in last year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The leader of the Rebellion has appeared in two episodes of the show thus far.

He also confirmed that Forest Whitaker will return as Saw Gerrera, an original Star Wars: The Clone Wars character who also appeared in Rogue One, as well as his co-pilot, Two Tubes. Saw first appeared in Rebels in the Season 3 two-parter “Ghosts of Geonosis.”

Our own Nathaniel Brail was on hand in the room for the Rebels Season 4 panel:

It was also announced that Warwick Davis would be joining the series as Thrawn’s assassin bodyguard Rukh, who first appeared in Timothy Zahn’s 1991 novel Heir to the Empire. So far, there’s a lot of great stuff to look forward to in what will sadly be the series’ final season. Check out the first Season 4 trailer here.

Expect to hear more Star Wars Rebels news as the weekend continues. And be sure to check back right here on Heroic Hollywood for all of our Star Wars and Star Wars Rebels coverage from this year’s Star Wars Celebration.
