But the very first thing our group did when we arrived was celebrate Star Wars Day at the fabulous Lowe's Hollywood Hotel. After all, we did arrive on May the 4th, which is better known as STAR WARS DAY!
That's not the only way that Star Wars films and "Star Wars Rebels" intertwine. This animated series actually falls in the time period between "Revenge of the Sith" and "A New Hope." So basically, it was AFTER Anakin Skywalker joined the Dark Side and became the villain we all know as Darth Vader but before Luke Skywalker, Leia, Chewbacca, and the rest of the gang try and save the universe in what is the earliest released Star Wars movie with Harrison Ford.
Vanessa is a self-proclaimed "Star Wars Nerd", so accepting this role was a no-brainer. She is incredibly enthusiastic about her role as Hera, and her eyes lit up as she talked about The Force-which isn't yet known as such. She also had glowing things to say about the rest of the cast, which just happens to include Freddie Prinze, Jr.
Are you looking forward to a brand new animated Star Wars Series? I'd love to hear all about your love for all things force-related!
