Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Sarah Michelle Gellar will be lending her voice to a character in season two of the animated series Star Wars Rebels. Executive producer/supervising director Dave Filoni made the casting announcement following the finale of season one, saying, “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.”

Gellar’s husband Freddie Prinze Jr is already a member of the voice cast which also includes Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Tiya Sircar, Taylor Gray, and David Oyelowo.

The Plot:

Continuing the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga, Star Wars Rebels unfolds between the events of Star Wars Episodes III and IV and tells the story of the motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost who together face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries and embark on thrilling adventures. In its second season, Star Wars Rebels will feature recurring appearances by fan-favorite characters including Darth Vader and Ahsoka Tano.
