Today we have a new Season 2 promo clip for the Star Wars Rebels series featuring actress Sarah Michelle Gellar’s character ‘Seventh Sister‘. Check out the details and the clip below, and let us know what you think after the JUMP!
Last week, we learned the surprising news that Buffy vet Sarah Michelle Gellar would ignite Star Wars Rebels Season 2 as a new inquisitor, rather than a young Princess Leia. Still, the erstwhile vampire slayer is all menace in the latest clip from Season 2, as Ezra attempts to hold his own in an interrogation.
Our newest look at Star Wars Rebels Season 2 sees SMG’s “Seventh Sister” having apparently captured Ezra, who’s none too keep to give up the identity of any still-living Jedi. As Gellar menacingly warns him, however, “As pretty as you are, I only need you alive. That doesn’t mean in one piece.”
Meanwhile, here’s Star Wars Rebels Season 2’s new synopsis:
In Star Wars Rebels Season Two, past lives will be revealed and the destiny of our heroes will be changed forever. The transformative new season resumes with Imperial oppression on Lothal growing stronger and the Rebels seeking out new allies and additional resources to sustain their fight against the evil Empire. With the help of Ahsoka Tano, the crew of the Ghost enlists some old friends: ex-clone troopers who fought in the Clone Wars.
As the Rebels grow in number, so do their enemies. New Inquisitors are dispatched by Darth Vader and sent to crush any threat of rebellion. Through dangerous rescue missions, thrilling space chases, and spectacular lightsaber duels — the bond of our Rebel crew will be put to the test like never before.
In addition to the return of Clone Wars favorites Captain Rex, Ahsoka Tano and Hondo Ohnaka, the second season of Star Wars Rebels will also pave the way for an episode penned by Star Wars: Rogue One screenwriter Gary Whitta. Clone Wars star Sam Witwer will also return to the voice of Emperor Palpatine, alongside James Earl Jones’ Darth Vader.
Star Wars Rebels Season 2 will also hold a special presentation and screening in New York Comic-Con in October, but check out the clips above and trailer below, and prepare for the October 14 premiere!
