Sarah Michelle Gellar is the new Inquisitor in Star Wars Rebels


It was announced before that Sarah Michelle Gellar was going to join the cast for Star Wars Rebels, but her character’s identity was still unknown… until now. A new video has been released, and it reveals that Gellar will be voicing the “Seventh Sister,” a new Inquisitor tasked with finding the Rebels for the Empire.

“I may be number 7, but I’m pretty much number 1,” Gellar joked at the beginning of the video. “My character believes that Ahsoka is back, and she’s trying to track down Ahsoka, as well as the Rebels… and kill them all!”

Before actually voicing the Seventh Sister, Gellar didn’t get to see the design. The animators later added her characteristics and movements to the character. She also talks about being a Star Wars fan and how she likes being a part of it.

Fun fact: She’ll be going up against the Rebels including Kanan, who’s voiced by Freddie Prinze, Jr. The two are married in real life, so it should be fun to see them go at it in the animated series.

The Inquisitors are Force-sensitive agents trained by Darth Vader to hunt down the remaining surviving Jedi. Their powers are kept in check, but they still pose a threat to the Rebels. The Inquisitor from Season 1 was killed off, and season 2 will have two new Inquisitors.

Star Wars Rebels Season 2 will air at 9:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on October 14, 2015, on Disney XD.
