Fans were treated to the return of Leia Organa in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you want to see more of her, then check out the upcoming “A Princess on Lothal” episode when Star Wars Rebels returns January 20th at 9pm ET/PT on Disney XD.

This will mark the first appearance of young Princess Leia on the animated series. The episode is set 3 years before the events of A New Hope, with Leia helping out the rebel fleet with ships at Lothal.

“One of the complex challenges of depicting Leia in ‘Star Wars Rebels’ is that we have to remind the audience that she is part of the Empire at this point,” says Executive Producer / Supervising Director Dave Filoni. “She doesn’t believe in the Empire, but she is acting the part, almost as a double agent. The Empire sees her as a privileged princess who runs mercy missions to wayward worlds, but in truth she is much stronger and more dangerous than they imagine.”

She will only appear in one episode for the second season and is voiced by Julie Dolan.

Check out the new clip featuring Princess Leia’s arrival.
