Rumor: Sarah Michelle Gellar's Star Wars Rebels Role Revealed?

By: Dominic Jones

We were all very excited to learn that Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar would be joining the cast of Star Wars Rebels in Season 2.  Gellar, whose husband Freddie Prince Jr. plays Kanan on the series, announced that she would be appearing on the series earlier this week after the stunning Season One finale "Fire Across the Galaxy" had aired.  The question now is, who will she be lending her voice to?  We may have out answer.  Star Wars Time is reporting that an inside source let them know who she will be playing.   As usual, there is a chance this may be false, but if you don't want to know anything about Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels then stop reading now!  This is your official SPOILER ALERT!
According to Star Wars Time
Sarah Michelle Gellar will be voicing a new character based on Mara Jade named Aileen Zahn in honor of Timothy Zahn, Mara’s creator. She will be an Inquisitor but pretending to be a Rebel. 

That would definitely be an interesting twist, plus I like the idea of seeing more Inquisitors next season since the one who terrorized our heroes throughout Season One fell to his death on Monday night.  The Mara Jade connection does raise some red flags for me.  If they were basing a character on a different character from the old EU/Legends, I don't know if they would really be advertising that.  On that same token, I have no issue with a character being named in honor of Tim Zahn due to his role is kick starting the EU back in 1991.

As always this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.
