Rogue One: A Star Wars story certainly changed things for Lucasfilm's Star Wars animated series. Not only did the studio's very first Star Wars spinoff bring Clone Wars character Saw Gerrera to life by having Forest Whitaker take on the role of the Rebel extremist, the film also confirmed the presence of Star Wars Rebels Ghost and its pilot Hera Syndulla.

Opening up a door for future cinematic experiences, Hera's voice actor Vanessa Marshall is hoping to see more Rebels characters make their way on to the big screen.

Speaking in an interview with Comicbook, the voice actress said that seeing Hera's ship on the big screen was a rewarding experience for her, admitting that she would love to play the character in a live-action film someday.

"Of course! Who knows, if she can serve the narrative, it would be awesome. It would be great to see her on film and it was incredible to see Saw Gerrera come to life," Marshall responded when asked whether she'd like to play Hera on the big screen. "I loved Saw in the Alderaan arcs in The Clone Wars and was so thrilled they took a character from the animated series and transitioned him into live-action to play such a pivotal role. If they did that with Hera, that would be magnificent but it's all about what serves the narrative and not necessarily just let's give Hera a cameo. I bow down to the overall journey at hand and I really can't wait for the movie [The Last Jedi] to come out in December and I'm so excited. That's really what's keeping me going."

There's no certainty of when it'll happen, especially with Lucasfilm building spinoffs around Han Solo and Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, we're still rooting for more Star Wars Rebels cameos in the Star Wars movies.
