He was a hero, during the Clone Wars, liberating his entire home planet of Ryloth from the clutches of the Separatists. When the shadow of the Empire fell across the galaxy, he went toe-to-toe with none other than Darth Vader, still fighting for freedom, and lived to tell the tale. He is Cham Syndulla, the father of Hera, the pilot of the Star Wars Rebels crew.
And now Cham is back in action next week on Rebels as our heroes team-up with the Twi'lek freedom fighter.
Check out the preview clip above, and the image gallery below the official description.
In need of a carrier to house their growing fleet, Hera must reluctantly reach out to her estranged father Cham Syndulla, who fans first met in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Cham needs help to fight off the Imperial bombing attack on his planet and the rebels need the Imperial carrier. Coordinating on a plan to overtake and steal the carrier housing the bombers, our team discovers that Cham may have a plan of his own.
“Star Wars: The Clone Wars” fans may also recognize a familiar voice when Catherine Taber (“Padmé” in “The Clone Wars”) reprises her role as Numa in this episode.
