Saw Gerrera made his big screen debut in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as the Rebel extremist. Those who have watched Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series got a chance to see the character in action before, and now they’ll get to see him again in Star Wars Rebels.

Forest Whitaker will be reprising his role as the voice as he makes his debut on the show’s “Ghosts of Geonosis, Parts One and  Two.” The one-hour event premieres on Saturday, January 7th, at 8:30pm on Disney XD.

Check out a sneak peek video highlighting the character on the show below:

Here’s his bio: The character of Saw Gerrera was first introduced in the TV series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” (2008-2015) as a guerrilla fighter for his home planet. Created by George Lucas, Saw received training from the Jedi – Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano – and served as an early harbinger of the Rebel Alliance, an assortment of disparate groups coming together to fight for a common cause.
