Lucasfilm has released a new clip ahead of this week’s episode of Star Wars Rebels that teases the birth of the Alliance to restore the Republic in the episode titled “Secret Cargo” which features Rogue One: A Star Wars Story actress Genevieve O’Reilly reprising her role as Mon Mothma.
In the clip, Phoenix Squadron is tasked with transporting Mon Mothma to a meeting that will serve to unite the different Rebel cells spread across the galaxy. The meeting itself will take place on Dantooine.
The planet Dantooine was mentioned first mentioned in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope when Princess Leia used what was a former Rebel base as a decoy location for the Massassi base on Yavin 4 in an attempt to save her home planet of Alderaan. The planet was then seen in the new canon novel Lost Stars when the Empire sent a scouting mission to investigate Leia’s claim and what remained of the base.
You can watch the clip below.

Star Wars Rebels airs Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD.
