In aanloop naar seizoen 3 van REBELS is er zojuist weer een korte clip online verschenen!
Deze keer zien we een nog steeds blinde Kanan Jarrus in gesprek met het mysterieuze nieuwe personage Bendu (wiens stem is ingesproken door de legendarische Tom Baker, die van 1974 tot en met 1981 de rol van Doctor Who speelde in de gelijknamige TV serie).
Hieronder kun je de volledige clip bekijken:
USA Today interviewde Tom Baker over zijn rol:
Q: What does the Bendu add to the Star Wars saga?
A: The Bendu is described as a “life force,” which is something we haven’t really seen before in Star Wars. He’s not the dark side or the light — he’s something greater. I’m quite flattered that (Rebels executive producer) Dave Filoni fancied me as a “life force” at the age of 82.
Q: The Bendu helps Kanan get his groove back. Do you see him as a Yoda-like mentor figure?
A: The big characters in these series appear to be making decisions, but it depends on the writers giving you good powerful scenes. These adventures of The Doctor and Bendu are followed and loved by people who dream. Dreaming is so important, because anything can happen. It has nothing to do with physics or logic, it’s like religious faith.
Q: Did they tell you anything about the character that most helped your portrayal?
A: No one except Dave would tell me anything because it was so secret. I didn’t know much about Doctor Who when I got that role either. When I set out to do a part, I don’t know what it’s going to do to me. You hope and try to absorb everything around you and let it drift through you.
