Ahead of the “Star Wars Rebels” season 3 Blu-ray launch, a new behind-the-scenes video of Mon Mothma has been released online. Meanwhile, actor Vanessa Marshall shared her thoughts after seeing The Ghost in “Rogue One” and the possibility of a live-action film for her character Hera.

Mon Mothma (voiced by Genevieve O’Reilly) was one of the most important characters from the leadership of the Rebel Alliance introduced in the show. A behind-the-scenes video on the YouTube channel of SYFY-WIRE shows a glimpse of how some of the scenes were filmed.

The very first scene is that of Mon Mothma’s heroic entrance, in which she shows both strength and compassion. O’Reilly had to show these traits with only her voice. Executive producer Dave Filoni was in the studio that day to give the actresses pointers about what the scene was about and what they were looking for.

While the character was seen in a leadership position in the films, the show allowed the creators more time and room to let the audience know her in depth. Fans got to see what the character was really like when she shared a drink with Hera (voiced by Vanessa Marshall). As leader of the Rebel Alliance, Mon Mothma has a lot of responsibilities, but she dreams about life as a pilot, flying across the galaxy and leaving her troubles behind.

Meanwhile, Marshall spoke about how excited she was when she saw The Ghost in “Rogue One,” according to an interview with Comic Book Movie. Knowing that her character was alive until this timeline is exciting as it opens up a lot of possibilities.

There have been many spin-off movies planned in the “Star Wars” franchise, and if any of them are set in the timeline in which Hera is alive, there’s good chance she will be seen as a live-action version. Marshall is excited and willing to take up this role if such an opportunity were to present itself.
