Reuniting with her Star Wars family will be Vanessa Marshall, who played Hera Syndulla on Star Wars Rebels.

Also making her Star Wars Celebration debut will be Myrna Velasco, who brings an effervescent energy to Torra Doza on Star Wars Resistance; Michael Pennington, Moff Jerjerrod in Return of the Jedi; and Tom Kane, a veteran actor from Star Wars: The Clone Wars who lent his voice to many characters including the narrator at the start of each episode and Master Yoda.

Kane will be joined by his former co-stars Catherine Taber, the actor behind Padmé Amidala, and Dee Bradley Baker, who gave life to an army of clones on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and has added his voice to several other projects including Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars Resistance.

And the father of all clones, actor Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett and Commander Cody in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith respectively, will also be there.
