In its second season, "Star Wars Rebels" looked to the animated past with appearances by such "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" favorites as Captain Rex, Hondo Ohnaka and, of course, Ahsoka Tano. However, the Disney XD series isn't through with that era yet.
Appearing at Oz Comic-Con in Sydney Australia, "Battlestar Galactica" veteran Katee Sackhoff revealed she'll reprise her "Clone Wars" role as Bo-Katan Kryze in the upcoming third season of "Rebels."
A Mandalorian warrior, Bo-Katan was a member of the splinter group Death Watch, which opposed the pacifist reign of her sister, Duchess Satine Kryze. Bo-Katan became the trusted lieutenant of the group's leader Pre Vizsla and joined him as a member of Darth Maul's Shadow Collective. However, when Maul killed Pre Vizsla, Bo-Katan split with the group and formed the Nite Owls, which opposed Maul's rule of Mandalore.
Given Maul's return at the end of "Rebels" Season 2, and his expected prominence in Season 3, it's certainly possible the former allies turned foes could face each other once more. Or perhaps the Mandalorian Sabine provides Bo-Katan with entry into the series, which is set shortly before the events of "Star Wars: A New Hope."
"Star Wars Rebels" returns Sept. 24 on Disney XD.
