Forest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera Returns in Star Wars: Rebels
After his appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, actor Forest Whitaker is making a return to the Star Wars universe when he reprises his role as Saw Gerrera in the animated series Star Wars: Rebels. You can hear the actor return to the role in this new clip we have for you.
Fans have known that Saw Gerrera was going to appear in Rogue One, so it was surprising to hear that he was coming back for Star Wars: Rebels. With the character coming in Star Wars: Rebels, a series that takes place years before Rogue One, this may give us an idea of how he became the extremist that he is in the recent film. The clip shows us the younger version of Gerrera as he leads some rebels in the upcoming two-part episode ‘Ghosts of Geonosis’.
The video also features showrunner Dave Filoni working with Lucasfilms story group chief Kiri Hart and Rogue One director Gareth Edwards to develop the backstory of Gerrera. The character made his debut in Star Wars: The Clone Wars where we learned of his involvement with Anakin and the other Jedis. It will be interesting to see more of Gerrera before the film.
