David Oyelowo & Freddie Prinze Jr. Reportedly Circling Roles in Star Wars: Rebels

Well it looks like we have some fairly reliable Star Wars casting information coming in today, but it’s not exactly what everyone’s been waiting on.  There appears to be some movement on the TV series side of things, as a handful of people are reportedly circling roles for the upcoming Star Wars: Rebels, which is set to debut in 2014.

According to THR David Oyelowo (most recently in The Butler), Freddie Prinze Jr., Vanessa Marshall (who’s voiced several superhero characters), Taylor Gray and Steven Jay Blum are all in talks to voice the leads in the animated show.  Outside of the fact that the show is set between the first two trilogies, we know very little else, so there’s no telling what type of roles these would be.

While I’m excited to see something from this brand new series (helmed by Dave Filoni), all I keep thinking is “when are those last few ‘bonus’ episodes of The Clone Wars coming out?”  Crazy thoughts I know.  What do you guys think of this potential casting?
