Disney XD and Lucasfilm revealed a new clip and screenshots this week for the next upcoming episode of Star Wars Rebels Season 2. You can check out the new images and clip for the upcoming episode, “Homecoming,” below.
This will be a major episode as it will formally introduce the estranged father of the Ghost crew’s pilot, Hera, in Cham Syndulla for the series. After the Ghost crew is in need of a carrier to house their growing Rebel fleet, Hera has to reluctantly reach out to her estranged father. This is not the first time fans have met Cham. He was previously depicted in Star Wars: the Clone Wars. Cham needs the help of the Ghost crew to fight off the Imperial bombing attack on his planet, and the Rebels need the Imperial carrier. So together, they coordinate a plan to overtake and steal the carrier housing the bombers. However, the Ghost crew discovers that Cham might have an agenda of his own.
The episode will also feature actor Catherine Taber (who voiced Padme in Star Wars: The Clone Wars), who reprises her role as Numa in this episode. In the new clip, the crew meets Cham. Kanan is amusingly nervous, like he’s meeting the father of his wife for the first time. Learning more about Hera’s family life is quite interesting, so this should be an exciting episode.
The “Homecoming” episode of Star wars Rebels airs on Wednesday, February 17 at 9:00 pm ET/T on Disney XD.
