'Star Wars Rebels' Hera © LucasfilmDisney XD and Lucasfilm today introduced a new character from the ‘Star Wars Rebels’ series, Hera, the heart of the Ghost crew from Star Wars Rebels. The Twi’lek, voiced by Vanessa Marshall, is an ace pilot, able fighter and is revealed to fans in the behind-the-scenes video featuring creator interviews, character sketches, and animation previews, embedded below.

Hera 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.’

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.

Star Wars Rebels is scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel and will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
