Warwick Davis joins fourth season of “Star Wars Rebels”

Warwick Davis will voice  the character  Rukh, who follows Grand Admiral Thrawn into official canon. The character was originally created in  Timothy Zahn’s 1991 novel “Heir to the Empire,” Rukh was fiercely loyal to the Galactic Empire, which promised to restore his ecologically ravaged home planet of Honoghr. An assassin who was later handpicked by Thrawn to serve as his personal bodyguard, Rukh ultimately turned on the Grand Admiral when he discovered the Empire never intended to save his world. Whether his role in the fourth season of “Star Wars Rebels” mirrors that arc remains to be seen.
