Star Wars Rebels season 3 cast Tom Baker - still, for many, the Doctor - has nabbed a recurring role in Star Wars Rebels season 3. The Doctor Who legend was announced among the cast for the third season of Disney XD's animated show at Star Wars Celebration London last year. DoctorWho.tv confirmed the news online, letting fans who couldn't make the event know that Mr Baker "is set to play the mysterious Bendu - a character that uses the Force but is neither Sith or Jedi." Rebels showrunner Dave Filoni is a big fan of Baker's Who work, and described the geek icon as "bigger than life". Bendu, Filoni promised, will make a "big difference" to the show. Baker's Bendu debuted in the first episode of Star Wars Rebels season 3. More Star Wars news as it happens.
