Star Wars Rebels Hera Intro Video

The last major character reveal for the upcoming Star War Rebels was made today, initially via EW's website and later on the Star Wars YouTube Channel.  EW first made the announcement in their article, "'Star Wars Rebels': Final hero revealed plus ALL the new characters together for first time -- EXCLUSIVE."  The video officially introduces the world to Hera. The pilot of the Ghost that is voiced by Vanessa Marshall (The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty).


Star Wars Rebels: Meet Hera, the Pilot
Hera is the heart of the Ghost crew from Star Wars Rebels. The Twi'lek is an ace pilot, able fighter, and is revealed to fans in this behind-the-scenes video featuring creator interviews, character sketches, and animation previews.

Hera is voiced by Vanessa Marshall, and is an especially gifted pilot. "I think she really makes flying the Ghost look easy," says Joel Aron, CG supervisor. And while she's strong-willed, Hera also keeps the group together, and can be warm and nurturing. "She knows how to talk to them to get the best out of themselves and to be part of that team," Aron says. "That to me is the commander of a ship."

Hera wears "utilitarian flight gear," orange in color, with her Twi'lek head-tails hanging down her back. She's not particularly glamorous, and is just focused on getting the job done. Like every member of the Ghost team, she has her reasons for rebelling against the Empire. Uncovering those reasons will be part of the Star Wars Rebels story, says executive producer Dave Filoni.

"Every time we get a script," says Marshall, "I am breathless with anticipation. I cannot wait to read what's next because I want to see where we're going, too."
