Princess Leia Coming To “Star Wars Rebels”

Fan-favorite Princess Leia Organa will be making an appearance in an upcoming episode of the second season of Disney XD’s “Star Wars Rebels” and the first clip of said appearance is online below:

Sadly Carrie Fisher will not provide the voice for the iconic character she played in the films. Instead Julie Dolan, who voiced Leia in the video game “Star Wars: Uprising,” will take on the part. The episode, “A Princess in Lothal,” is set to air Wednesday, January 20th.

Executive producer Dave Filoni says: “We thought we had an opportunity to show her learning to be a leader, experimenting with the personality that becomes the stronger more resolute character you see in A New Hope. One of the complex challenges of depicting Leia in Rebels is that we have to remind the audience that at this point she is part of the Empire. She doesn’t believe in the Empire, but she is acting the part, almost a double agent.”
