One of the more interesting characters from ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘ with a ton of hinted backstory was Saw Gerrera and now we’ll be able to learn some of it when he makes an appearance in ‘Star Wars Rebels‘ in the near future! Disney and Lucasfilm have really hit it out of the park and while Forest Whitaker’s character originated from ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars,’ there is clearly a lot we don’t know about the reclusive rebel. Some minor spoilers are below if you haven’t yet seen ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.’
So if you’re wondering when we’ll be seeing Gerrera pop up next then we’ve got an image to share with you that should have you thrilled! It was spotted at Toys ‘R Us and, well, first just check this out:

It is a poster for the second half of the third season of ‘Star Wars Rebels’ so honestly, we won’t have long to wait for Gerrera to make his debut on the show. By the time the events in ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ play out we know that Gerrera has become far too extreme for the Rebel Alliance as Mon Mothma and the other leaders refuse to have anything to do with him. In the future, he is too extreme for the Alliance though I suspect that during the events of the animated series they will still be working together. I’d love if they show us exactly what events have him break from the Alliance though I suspect they might be too dark for a children’s show to see and might just be hinted at.
Outside of a brief cameo by Chopper and a callout to General Syndulla, which could be Cham Syndulla from ‘The Clone Wars’ but most likely is for his daughter, Hera Syndulla from ‘Rebels,’ a shop that also looks like The Ghost makes a quick appearance at the end dogfight of the film. It makes you wonder if the other surviving Lothal rebels are still alive at this point or if we’ll see hints of them pop up later.
Are you looking forward to Gerrera showing up on ‘Star Wars Rebels’? Do you think we’ll see what was the final straw that had him break away from the Alliance? Share your thoughts below!
The third season of ‘Star Wars Rebels’ will premiere in a galaxy far far away as well as on Disney XD on January 7th, 2017.
