Bryan Young, AKA @swankmotron from Big Shiny Robot, was at Salt Lake City Comic Con’s FanXperience this weekend where he got a big scoop: Jim Cummings, the voice of Hondo Ohnaka of The Clone Wars fame, will be lending the Weequay pirate’s voice to Star Wars Rebels in a future episode(s)!
“‘And I think I’m allowed to tell you I’m back,’ he told us, and elaborated further later saying that, ‘He’ll be back, but we do them so far in advance I don’t know when. So you’ll just have to watch them all. I do anyway, so what the heck.'”
Hondo is one of the most popular characters original to The Clone Wars series, so his return to the television screen will be most welcome, indeed!
