Disney released the first look at Princess Leia in Star Wars: Rebels, Julie Dolan will voice the princess in the premiere of season two, “A Princess in Lothal” that will air January 20.
Executive producer Dave Filoni talked with TV Insider about how they wanted to introduce the character to Rebels.
“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. 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,” said Filoni.
