LucasFilms has just posted the final video for their week-long character rollout for Star Wars Rebels, this time it’s the introductory featurette for the Ghost crew’s resident pilot and “heart” of the group, Hera. Hera is a Twi‘lek female and is an ace pilot and a very, very capable fighter in her own right. Hera is voiced by Vanessa Marshall.
“I think she really makes flying the Ghost look easy,” says Joel Aron, CG supervisor. And while she’s strong-willed, Hera also keeps the group together, and can be warm and nurturing. “She knows how to talk to them to get the best out of themselves and to be part of that team,” Aron says. “That to me is the commander of a ship.”
The video features interviews with the creator, a look at some character sketches and early renderings. You can view the video below:
