A young Princess Leia will be making her debut on the Disney XD series, Star Wars Rebels.
The episode will focus on Leia during her time in the Empire and how she came to be the rebellion she became to be. For those of you that don’t watch Rebels, the events of the show take place before the events of A New Hope.
Executive Producer Dave Filon explains their reason on bringing Leia into the Rebels world:
“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.”
She will not be voiced by Carrie Fisher, rather Julie Dolan, who voiced Leia in the Star Wars: Uprising game, will be doing the voice of Young Leia.
