Watch a clip for tonight's two-part midseason premiere episode of Star Wars Rebels which features Saw Gerrera and Forest Whitaker from Star Wars: Rogue One.

"Ghosts of Geonosis" is the first Star Wars Rebels episode to air after the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, allowing it to tie directly into the feature film. In doing so, the production team chose to introduce Saw Gerrera to the show. The character was originally introduced in the fifth season of the television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and he was brought into live-action for Rogue One. The episode shows Gerrera and the crew of the Ghost investigating Geonosis. Although the characters will not yet know it, they will be on the trail of the Death Star that the Alliance to Restore the Republic ultimately learns about in Rogue One. Forest Whitaker, who portrayed Gerrera in the film, reprises his role for the episode, which helps bridge Gerrera's characterization in The Clone Wars and Rogue One.

Star Wars Rebels airs tonight at 8:30 ET/PT on Disney XD.
