Vanessa Marshall of Star Wars Rebels on Star Wars Episode VII

We attended the event as a guest of Disney


Shelby and Vanessa Marshall

Vanessa Marshall who is the voice of Hera in the upcoming Disney Channel series, Star Wars Rebels came to Los Angeles tonight for a Star Wars Day celebration. The celebration was filled with Storm Trooper Action, food and an even a little light saber fun. The question on everyone’s mind at the event was “what she thinks about the recent announcement of the cast of Star Wars Episode VII?”

“I’m excited for all of it. I’m thrilled. I love the whole thing. Why aren’t there more women? Those distinctions are not important to me because I don’t think they matter in terms of existential crisis and things that are going on that we all suffer from regardless of gender – I am so excited. I know nothing about it either. No more than you do, it’s not like working on Star Wars Rebels that I have any insight, I have no clue what is going on, and I delight in every bit they give us,” said Marshall.

Marshall continued to tell us that, “you are either for the empire or against it. Gender and race is present, but it’s not important. It’s one for all, and all for one.”

Everything that you love about the original Star Wars and original characters come together in the all-new Star Wars Rebels. The origin of the story is from the Rebel Alliance 5 years before Episode IV: A New Hope. Stay tuned as Star Wars Rebels will be coming to the Disney Channel this Fall.


May the 4th Be With You!
