Princess Leia Coming To Star Wars Rebels

The classic Star Wars character,Princess Leia is heading to the hit animated series, Star Wars Rebels, which can be seen on Disney XD on January 20th.  The series is set before episode IV: A New Hope and this episode sees the teenage princess is sent to Lothal, to help the Rebels on a secret mission to bring ships for the rebel fleet. However when the Empire gets involved, things go wrong.  This will be Leia’s only appearance this season and wasn’t voiced by Carrie Fisher, but by Julie Dolan, who has worked as Leia as a video game voice actor.

“We thought we had an opportunity to show her learning to be a leader, experimenting with the personality that becomes the stronger more resolute character you see in A New Hope,” Filoni says. “One of the complex challenges of depicting Leia in Rebels is that we have to remind the audience that at this point she is part of the Empire. She doesn’t believe in the Empire, but she is acting the part, almost a double agent.”
