Star Wars Rebels voice cast rumours

David Oyelowo and Freddie Prinze Jr are amongst the names rumoured to be voicing parts in Star Wars Rebels...

Set in the decades between Episodes III and IV, in a time "where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape", Star Wars Rebels arrives on Disney XD next year to take the place of Cartoon Network's The Clone Wars.

So far, character details have been thin on the ground, but a rumour is circulating that David Oyelowo (Jack Reacher, The Paperboy), Freddie Prinze Jr. (recently, Mass Effect 3 and Robot Chicken), Vanessa Marshall (The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes), Nickelodeon star Taylor Gray, and experienced video game voice actor Steven Jay Blum are all in talks to provide the lead voice roles. 

As with Star Wars: The Clone Wars, once the series is up and running, the guest voices are likely to draw more attention than the regulars. With the likes of geek favourites George Takei, Katee Sackhoff, Liam Neeson, Jon Favreau, Simon Pegg, Seth Green, David Tennant, Ron Perlman, and James Marsters all having popped up in its predecessor, Star Wars Rebels has plenty to live up to on that front.
