Aaaaaaand my late teens crush on Buffy has just been seriously re-awoken!

Sarah Michelle Gellar, wife of Star Wars Rebels’ Kanan actor, Freddie Prinze Jnr, has revealed her Rebels alter ego in Season 2… The Seventh Sister, an Inquistor who wants nothing more than to crush the rebels.

Kanan may have killed the Grand Inquistor last season, but this year his understudies want revenge.

There was a rumour a while back that Gellar was playing Princess Leia, we know that’s not true now… she will, instead, be making her husband’s life hell on screen.

Her character looks great, sounds great and is another strong female Star Wars character. So it’s all good.

Star Wars Rebels season 2 will premiere on Wednesday, Oct. 14th at 9:30 pm on Disney XD.

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….
