TV Time: #StarWars Rebels is getting a Princess


Princess Leia Organa will be making an appearance in an upcoming episode of Star Wars Rebels Season 2. Carrie Fisher will not provide the voice talent, but Leia will be voiced by Julie Dolan who provides the voice for Princess Leia in both Star Wars: Uprising and Disney 3.0 video games

“We thought we had an opportunity to show her learning to be a leader, experimenting with the personality that becomes the stronger more resolute character you see in A New Hope,” executive producer Dave Filoni says. “One of the complex challenges of depicting Leia in Rebels is that we have to remind the audience that at this point she is part of the Empire. She doesn’t believe in the Empire, but she is acting the part, almost a double agent.”

The episode featuring Leia, “A Princess in Lothal,” is set to air on Wednesday, January 20 at 9 PM EST on Disney .XD.
