Saw Gerrera Returns For “Star Wars: Rebels”

The character of Saw Gerrera, the Rebel freedom fighter too extreme for the Rebel Alliance by the time of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” is coming back.

The character, whom first appeared in animated form in the “Star Wars Clone Wars” series and was recently played by Forest Whittaker in live-action form in ‘Rogue’, will return to animated form for the second half of the third season of “Star Wars Rebels” which begins early next year.

As events hear are set years before ‘Rogue One,’ we may see what leads to the split between Gerrera and the Rebels. The show returns to Disney XD on January 7th.
