We’ve known for a while now that Forest Whitaker’s character from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story would be turning up in Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels (it’s only fitting, as the character first appeared in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars). Now we have a trailer, which combines footage from Rogue One with new footage of Saw in Star Wars Rebels, to prove it. We even see an image of the Death Star… well, sort of. Star Wars Rebels is set before the events of Rogue One, so hopefully we’ll get the learn more about how he became the feared militant seen in the film.
Saw will make his Star Wars Rebels debut in the special, two-part Star Wars Rebels midseason premiere, airing in the States on 7 January. Forest Whitaker will be providing the voice.
