‘Star Wars Rebels’ Makes ‘Rogue One’ Return With New Mon Mothma Clip
Star Wars fan fervor has understandably moved from Rogue One to The Last Jedi, but can Star Wars Rebels swing the needle back? Yet another of the Star Wars Story players is making their animated return, as our first clip from “Secret Cargo” sees Genevieve O’Reilly back in her Rogue One role.
Disney XD debuted a second clip from this coming Saturday’s “Secret Cargo” (sadly lacking in any Indiana Jones easter eggs), as Mon Mothma appears in the animated flesh to relay her mission of uniting the various Rebel cells into one gathered Alliance. The character previously appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars (there voiced by Kath Soucie), though O’Reilly notably made her first live-action appearance as Mon Mothma in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, only for the scenes to end up on the cutting room floor.
In the meantime, so reads the synopsis for Rebels’ “Secret Cargo”:
When a routine refueling mission goes awry, the Ghost crew find themselves transporting Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly) across the galaxy in an all new episode of “Star Wars Rebels” this SATURDAY, MARCH 4 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.
There’s every chance Star Wars Rebels still has a few Rogue One tricks up its sleeve, to say nothing of a major upcoming prequel reunion, but check out an additional clip from “Secret Cargo” below, and stay tuned for more this Saturday.
