It appears yet another beloved character, and their voice actor, from Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be making a return in Star Wars Rebels very soon. Early on, before Rebels began, we learned that the Ghost's daring pilot Hera Syndulla shared her surname with fan favorite Clone Wars character Cham Syndulla, and it was later revealed that Cham is indeed Hera's father and he will be making his Rebels debut in the upcoming episode "Homecoming". Ever since the season two second half trailer dropped speculation has run rampant about who some of the other Twi'leks with Cham could be, and Lucasfilm's Tracy Cannobbio has confirmed on Twitter that Numa will also be appearing, once again voiced by Catherine Taber.
Numa previously appeared as a child in The Clone Wars season one episode "Innocents On Ryloth" and quickly became memorable for her interplay with Clone Troopers Waxer and Boil. Star Wars Rebels will feature an all grown up Numa alongside Cham and other Rebels amidst the fight against the Empire. Catherine Taber, who voiced numerous characters in The Clone Wars, most notably Padmé Amidala and Numa, will be making her Star Wars Rebels debut by returning to voice the older Numa.
Star Wars Rebels: Homecoming airs on Wednesday, February 17th at 9:00pm ET/PT on Disney XD!
