Sarah Michelle Gellar will voice the Seventh Sister Inquisitor on Star Wars Rebels

A recent Instagram post by actress Sarah Michelle Gellar with her hair in Carrie Fisher-style buns led a lot of people to believe she would be voicing Princess Leia in Star Wars Rebels Season 2, but a new video (via BuzzFeed) reveals who the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” icon will actually be playing: The Seventh Sister Inquisitor! Check out this deadly new inquisitor in action below!

Set to return television October 14, Lucasfilm and Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels Season 2 opens with the crew of the Ghost now a very real threat to the Empire. That’s bad news, because Darth Vader’s been assigned with the task of mopping them up. Undeterred, the rebels seek out old friends and new allies, hoping to rally the formidable alliance which began to crystallize at the end of Season One. Vader will dispatch new agents to counter their growing coalition, but the Sith Lord’s battle with the Rebels could be more personal than anyone realized.

The cast for the series is made up of Freddie Prinze, Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Steve Blum as Zeb, and Taylor Gray Ezra. In addition, the series has brought back a number of classic characters with Stephen Stanton voicing Grand Moff Tarkin (played by Peter Cushing in the original film) along with Phil LaMarr as Bail Organa and other original actors for some characters including Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, Frank Oz as Yoda, and Anthony Daniels as C-3PO.

If you haven’t already seen it, be sure to check out the Star Wars Rebels Season 2 trailer and look for the Star Wars Rebels Season 2 premiere, titled “The Lost Commanders,” on Disney XD October 14. As previously revealed, it will feature the return of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” clone troopers Rex, Wolffe and Gregor.
