The next season of Star Wars Rebels will be adding a former Battlestar Galactica hotshot pilot in Season 3.
Jedi News UK reports Katee Sackhoff, aka Starbuck, will be joining the cast of Star Wars Rebels this season. The news was reportedly announced at Australia’s Sydney Comic-Con.
She’ll be reprising her role as Mandalorian warrior Bo-Katan Kryze, a gig she originated in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Bo-Katan was a great character in Clone Wars, and it’s encouraging to see her getting a comeback. If you're not watching Rebels, it's getting pretty good. Plus, it’s always nice to see (or hear) Sackhoff. No word on exactly how she'll fit into the narrative of Season 3, but it’s apparently just a guest spot, and her role has already been recorded.
If you’re not well-versed on Clone Wars, Bo-Katan is a female human Mandalorian warrior. She worked with the Death Watch faction, and eventually allied with Obi-Wan Kenobi to oppose Darth Maul when he became the ruler of Mandalore. As for Rebels era? Who knows where she’s at these days
Star Wars Rebels returns to Disney XD on Sept. 24.
