It looks like the long wait will be worth it. When Rebels returns next week, it will have a cameo appearance by none other than Princess Leia! This confirms what many speculated upon last week.
Of all the plausible, meaningful cameos that we could have gotten on the show, Leia’s is the one I’m most looking forward to. Yes, there’s always Han and Luke are out there, but we already have a good idea of what they’re up to during this time frame: no good, and nothing, respectively. Other than Leia, I’m most curious about Obi-Wan, but let’s take things one step at a time.
This will be our first look at Leia and her activities pre-A New Hope, and though this is her only appearance of season two, who knows what season three may hold!
