The link between the Star Wars universe on the big and small screen was recently solidified when it was revealed that Forest Whitaker would be playing Saw Gerrera in Rogue One - a character we last saw in The Clone Wars animated series.
And, according to producer Simon Kinberg, it sounds as though that character could just be the beginning of the Star Wars crossover.
“What’s lovely is, obviously, we’ve brought in characters from Clone Wars in the second season, and we keep sort of bringing characters from the original movies and sort of deepening the relationships between our core characters, the Ghost crew,” he recently told Moviefone. “So it’s trying to balance the two different things, like the original cast from the first season with Clone Wars, with characters from the original movies, and maybe even feeding into future movies.”
Saw isn't the first character to jump from one part of the Star Wars universe to the other. Fans have also encountered the likes of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Darth Vader, Darth Maul and Lando Calrissian among others on the likes of The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.
