We learned last week that Saw Gerrera, a character who first appeared on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and whose fate was revealed during Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, would making an appearance on Star Wars Rebels.  Now, Entertainment Weekly's Anthony Breznican has confirmed that, not only will Saw be appearing in the midseason premiere on January 7th, he will be voiced by academy award winning actor Forest Whitaker (who played Saw on screen in Rogue One).  EW's official confirmation of the news came with a new behind the scenes featurette with Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni and Lucasfilm Story Group member Rayne Roberts discussing Saw's history and the process of bringing him into the show.  Check it out below,
