Hera Takes the Lead in “Wings of the Master”

Hera and Sabine 207During the LA press conference for Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels, Dave Filoni went off-script to talk about the show’s female characters. In hindsight, that might have been preemptive as Sabine Wren and Hera Syndulla have been side characters in the recent episodes. Tonight, Hera is front and center, which is nice to see, as voice actress Vanessa Marshall brought the glue to this band of rebels since the show’s premiere last year. Plus we get B-wings and an eccentric engineer!
