As Dave Filoni’s go-to-guy for Dark Side characters on Star Wars: The Clone Wars,Â genre icon Sam WitwerÂ seems an obvious shoo-in forÂ Star Wars: Rebels, Disney’s new animated series currently being developed by Filoni as a bridge between the Prequel Trilogy and the Original Trilogy.
“Itâ€™s always possible!” reveals Witwer, speaking exclusively to SciFiNow.
“At this point [Dave Filoni and I] are friends and we catch up a lot, but we talk about Star Wars so much, it was never just a job for anyone who worked on that show.”
Given his past Force-wielding credits, which include the morally ambiguous Starkiller in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, as well as theÂ terrifying Son and fan-favourite Sith apprentice Darth Maul in The Clone Wars, Witwer would be an obvious choice for the show’s much-teased big bad…
“I can tell you right now Iâ€™m not playing the Inquisitor,” he asserts.
Iâ€™m sure fans would love to see â€“ or at least hear â€“ you again!
“Itâ€™s always possible,” laughs the star. “Always possibleâ€¦”
