Doctor Who Tom Baker Joins Star Wars Rebels

The worlds of Doctor Who and Star Wars come together once again as the Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker, has joined the cast of Star Wars Rebels Season 3.

Tom Baker will play the character Bendu, who is described as the “middle way of the Force” – not Dark Side or Light Side – he’s “something else, a force of nature.”

Star Wars Rebels showrunner David Filoni announced the casting at this past weekend’s Star Wars Celebration offering he specifically created the character of Bendu with Tom Baker in mind.

‘[Bendu is] so unique in everything he does,’ Filoni said, adding that Bendu is “a different kind of Force character/creature than we’ve had before” and will make a “big difference.”

You can get a glimpse of Tom Baker’s character and voice of Bendu in the new Star Wars Rebels Season 3 trailer below (around 1:48 mark).

Dave Filoni, a big Doctor Who fan, also previously cast David Tennant in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 returns this Fall.

“Star Wars Rebels” fills the gap between the events of “Episode III” and “Episode IV.” Imperial forces occupy a remote planet and are ruling — and ruining — its inhabitants’ lives with an iron fist.

Check out a clip above featuring her arrival, with Princess Leia being voiced by Julie Dolan.

In this clip from the Star Wars Rebels episode “A Princess on Lothal,” Kanan and Ezra don stormtrooper armor to welcome a new ally: Princess Leia.

Watch “A Princess on Lothal” on January 20, 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD!


The Ghost crew is back, and they’re bringing Star Wars royalty with them.

Star Wars Rebels returns with “A Princess on Lothal,” a brand new episode featuring Princess Leia, on January 20 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD. Set three years before the events of A New Hope, Leia is introduced as a young leader on her way to becoming the strong, more resolute character portrayed in the original trilogy.

“One of the complex challenges of depicting Leia in Rebels is that we have to remind the audience that she is part of the Empire at this point,” says executive producer / supervising director Dave Filoni. “She doesn’t believe in the Empire, but she is acting the part, almost as a double agent. The Empire sees her as a privileged princess who runs mercy missions to wayward worlds, but in truth she is much stronger and more dangerous than they imagine.” 

Appearing in her only episode of the season, the young Princess Leia is voiced by Julie Dolan, who also lent her vocal talents to the Rebel leader featured in Disney’s Star Tours attraction. Her character’s appearance in Star Wars Rebels portrays the beginnings of the seasoned general we meet again in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, her royal heritage all but eclipsed by her hard-won military stature.

“There really is no other character quite like her,” says Filoni. “And to quote The Force Awakens’ Lor San Tekka, ‘She’ll always be royalty to me.’”
