After a holiday hiatus, the second season of Star Wars Rebels returns to Disney XD on Jan. 20 with the series debut of Princess Leia.
In the episode titled A Princess on Lothal, a young Leia arrives on Lothal with ships for the Rebel fleet. When an Imperial lockdown spoils the Rebels’ plans, we see the beginnings of Leia’s maturation to the confident Rebel leader we meet in the original trilogy. Julie Dolan, who provides Leia’s voice in Star Wars: Uprising and the Star Tours ride at the Disney theme parks, will voice young Leia.
Star Wars Rebels is set three years before the events of A New Hope. A Princess on Lothal airs at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
