If you haven't seen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story yet, please avoid this article until after you've seen the film to avoid potential Star Wars spoilers.
A cool character from Rogue One is returning to the Star Wars universe this season on Star War: Rebels, Forest Whitaker's character Saw Gerrera has now been officially confirmed to be making an appearance in Star Wars: Rebels season 3 part two! The character was confirmed via a cool promo poster for Toys R Us.
While the character of Saw Gerrera meets his end during an epic climatic scene in Rogue One, the character appearing in Rebels makes total since, being that the Rebels time-line is before the events that takes place in the film. For us hardcore fans, this will not be Saw Gerrera's first appearance on the small screen, as he was a character that popped in and out of The Clone Wars show. No other information is known at this time about his appearance so stay tuned!

Here's some cool info on Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Part two via Comicbook.com below:
The second half of the season will launch on January 7, 2017, and with a special hour long two-episode mid-season premiere. Ghosts of Geonosis parts one and two will air back-to-back that day, Star Wars News Net reports, with new episodes also confirmed for January 14 and January 21. The two-parter was screened during the Rogue One press screening for "Mommy Bloggers," and sounds like it should have significant ties to Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and possibly to othere canon stories like Catalyst, the Rogue One prequel novel, and the Darth Vader comic book, all of which have dealt significantly with Geonosis.
