Not too long after season one wrapped up, it was announced that Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) would be lending her voice to a character in season two of Star Wars Rebels. Since then details about her role have been scarce (her husband Freddie Prinze Jr, who plays Kanan on the series, joked at Celebration that she would be playing a Wookiee), but it seems now we may get an actual answer at New York Comic Con. Gellar tweeted out today that she would be taking part in the Star Wars Rebels season two preview panel taking place on Thursday October 8th at 1:30pm EST on the Empire Stage at NYCC.
I'm excited to announce that I will be on the #StarWarsRebels panel at #NYCC on 10/8, 1:30pm, on the Empire Stage (of course)Who's coming?— Sarah Michelle (@SarahMGellar) September 25, 2015
Hopefully we'll learn some actual details about her role in the upcoming season during the panel. There has been speculation that she will be playing the new female Inquisitor seen in the previews.
In addition to the panel, there will also be a screening of the first two episodes of Season two of Rebels that evening at 5:30pm, also at the Empire Stage.
