A brand new Star Wars Rebels featurette reveals Mon Mothma’s appearance in the show’s third season of the animated series.
The vice president of Lucasfilm Animation, Carrie Beck shares some insights on how they created Mon Mothma’s involvement with the Ghost Crew:
“When we see her, most often, prior to this, is often in briefing situations, often up in front of a crowd. One of the things that we were able to do, specifically having her and Hera together in the cockpit, is you actually get something a little more intimate…You’re getting a moment that’s really about her own ideology, her own personal philosophy, her personal commitment and what it means to her. Those aren’t moments that we’ve gotten to have with that character before because the opportunity hadn’t presented itself.”
