Saw Gerrera is coming to Star Wars: Rebels and Forest Whitaker is coming with him!

We recently took an indepth look at Star Wars:The Clone Wars and Rogue One character Saw Gerrera and now we will get to see even more of him as we find out what happened to Saw following The Clone Wars as he is set to appear in Star Wars: Rebels voiced by Forest Whitaker.

Star Wars: Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni stated that “Forest really wanted to know a lot about the character He watched The Clone Wars episodes with his character and I had some detail for him about things George [Lucas] and I discussed. It gave him more time to develop the character as far as, ‘How did he get there?’”

Filoni devised Saw’s return along with Lucasfilm story group chief Kiri Hart and Rogue One director Gareth Edwards. The show is set several years before the events of Rogue One, so Saw is a bit younger, a bit healthier, and a lot meaner.

“He’s not quite as beat up as you see him [in Rogue One],” Filoni says. “I never wanted to go into a lengthy thing about this is how Saw lost his foot. It’s more about his philosophy and who he is and what he thinks about the Rebellion — and how they go about resisting the Empire.”

“Saw really has this feeling that there are things at work, and if [the Rebels] don’t get active, there’ll be no stopping it,” Filoni says. “There’s only a thread of hope at that point.”

The title of the two-part episode in which Saw returns is “Ghosts of Geonosis.”
