While we have known since well before the movie came out that Forest Whitaker was playing Saw Gerrera, a character from The Clone Wars series but it looks like his story is continuing in another corner of the Star Wars universe… Rebels.

It looks like Toys R Us are giving out posters featuring the character as he will appear in the show and he looks awesome and that armour he’s wearing looks very familiar… will we find out why the character is in such poor condition when he appears in Rogue One?

Our friends at The Star Wars Underworld have an interesting observation about the poster: “It should be noted that the planet near the bottom looks to be Geonosis, which could mean Saw will appear in the hour-long midseason premiere “Ghosts of Geonosis”, airing January 7th.”

We’re really looking forward to seeing more of Saw and his adventures before we meet him in Rogue One, aren’t you?

Let u know your thoughts, guys…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
