Sarah Michelle Gellar Cast in Star Wars Rebels Season Two
Fantasy and sci-fi geeks can unite in their joy, as Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Sarah Michelle Gellar has just been cast in a mystery role for the second season of Star Wars: Rebels.
"We're thrilled to have Sarah Michelle Gellar on board for season two. She is a true Star Wars Rebels fan and her passion undoubtedly comes through in the voice recording sessions," said executive producer Dave Filoni.
Gellar is joining a star-studded voice cast (especially considering that it's a voice cast), which includes her husband, Freddie Prinze Jr., as well as Selma star and Golden Globe nominee David Oyelowo.
Her role is being kept under wraps for now, although she will likely have a significant role, so we can speculate that there's a possibility she'll be playing Ahsoka. Ahsoka was a hugely popular Jedi on The Clone Wars who was (spoiler!) revealed on last night's Rebels finale to be Fulcrum's true identity. To be fair, there were rumors that a French actress listed the role on her resume, but as of now there's no actress listed for her on IMDB, so we feel justified in speculating that Gellar could play this fan favorite.
And do you know who else hasn't shown up yet? Leia. Just saying.
