Hondo Returning to ‘Star Wars: Rebels’

At Salt Lake Comic Con’s FanXperience this last weekend, we had the extreme pleasure of doing a live recording of Full of Sith to a packed room.

We were joined part way through by Jim Cummings who is the voice of Hondo Ohnaka on “The Clone Wars.” Hondo is everyone’s favorite Weequay pirate and hilariously treacherous not-bad guy.

At about minute 27:20, Jim Cummings drops a tidbit of information, expressing his sadness that “The Clone Wars” was over, but following that up by saying that Hondo might very well just be back for “Star Wars: Rebels.” 

“And I think I’m allowed to tell you I’m back,” he told us, and elaborated further later saying that, “He’ll be back, but we do them so far in advance I don’t know when. So you’ll just have to watch them all. I do anyway, so what the heck.”

Later, he also said that his dream odd couple team up would be Hondo and Winnie the Pooh and went on to give us a preview of what such a pairing might sound like.
