WonderCon is back at the Anaheim Convention Center this weekend, but now with 100% more ace Twi’lek pilots: Vanessa Marshall, voice of Hera on Lucasfilm’s upcoming animated series, will be joining Dave Filoni on his special “Behind the Scenes of Star Wars Rebels” panel. Hera is the steel-willed captain of the Ghost starship, and the heart of the show’s fledgling group of Rebels. Like the rest of the team, she has her own reasons for wanting to fight the Empire; uncovering those reasons will be part of the journey of Star Wars Rebels. “Every time we get a script,” said Marshall in the character’s introductory video, “I am breathless with anticipation. I cannot wait to read what’s next because I want to see where we’re going, too.”
The “Behind the Scenes of Star Wars Rebels” panel at Wondercon will be held this Saturday April 19th, from 2:00 P.M – 3:00 P.M. and we’ll be sure to bring you all the latest news and updates from the panel this Saturday!
