Princess Leia will be joining the likes of Darth Vader, C3PO, R2D2, and Lando Calrissian of characters from the original trilogy that have appeared on Star Wars Rebels. Leia will be appearing on the January 20th episode of the show titled "A Princess In Lothal" and we will get to see a Princess that is a little different than the one we first meet in A New Hope. “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,” executive producer Dave Filoni says.
“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." Watch the clip below from the episode and tune in on January 20th when Star Wars Rebels returns for it's second half of season 2,
