Sarah Michelle Gellar who is still beloved by fans everywhere for her classic role as Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be joining her real life husband Freddie Prinze Jr. on the new season of STAR WARS REBELS. Revealed today to BuzzFeed, Gellar appeared in a promotional video showing off her new character “The Seventh Sister” who will be a Inquisitor sent to track down the rebels and specifically Ahsoka Tano. Her character looks to be wielding a spinning duel balled lightsaber, very similar to the Inquisitor from Season 1 of REBELS but no details have been given about the possible connection.
If you’re a fan of STAR WARS and haven’t given REBELS a chance yet, I highly recommend it. The first season of the show blew past my initial expectations and really is what made me feel that Disney owning STAR WARS is what’s best for the future of the franchise. With this new season looking to focus on the growth of the rebellion, the relationship between Ahsoka and Vader and connections to the past and future of STAR WARS, I couldn’t be more excited to check it out.
