Disney XD and Lucasfilm have announced that Buffy The Vampire Slayer royalty Sarah Michelle Gellar will be joining the cast of Star Wars Rebel for Season 2.
Gellar’s character is yet to be revealed, but the show’s executive producer Dave Filoni said: “We’re thrilled to have Sarah Michelle Gellar on board for Season 2. She is a true Star Wars Rebels fan and her passion undoubtedly comes through in the voice recording sessions.”
In an adorable turn of events, Star Wars Rebels gives Gellar another chance to work with her real-life husband Freddie Prinze Jr., who voices Kanan Jarrus on the show. This will be the fourth time the couple have worked together, after I Know What You Did Last Summer, She’s All That, Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. Awwww.
Returning cast members include Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Taylor Gray, Tiya Sircar, Jason Isaacs and David Oyelowo.
Star Wars Rebels returns to Disney XD later this year. You can buy Star Wars Rebels: Spark Of Rebellion on DVD for £4.99 from Amazon.co.uk. Keep up with all the latest sci-fi TV news with every issue of SciFiNow.
