We have another round of details about the Star Wars franchise's future on Disney+, and one returning character looks set to play a crucial role across a number up upcoming series on the streaming platform...

We've been hearing rumblings for a while now that Genevieve O'Reilly will reprise the role of Mon Mothma in a number of upcoming Star Wars projects, and Making Star Wars has now shared some fresh intel on where she'll appear next. As you'll soon find out, the actress has had a very busy year. 

Before we get to that, though, a quick recap. In Andor, we've seen the double life Mon was forced to live before finally joining, and leading, the Rebellion. 

It's not been easy for her and, as expected, her story is going to continue in that show's upcoming second season. However, when it comes to the part she played in the Galaxy following the events of Return of the Jedi, all we really know is that she was crucial in taking apart the military forces of both the Empire and Rebellion.

As a result, when the First Order later made its presence felt, the Resistance was seriously underpowered and Mon's legacy is really one that's made up of a great victory and a huge failure that overshadows it. 

According to the site, O'Reilly will first return as the character at some point in The Mandalorian's current third season. However, she'll also play a pivotal role in Ahsoka, with a big chunk of that series reportedly devoted to the New Republic's failings (something we saw first-hand in "The Convert" last week). 

It's said that Ahsoka Tano's pleas for help against Grand Admiral Thrawn's machinations will fall on deaf ears, especially as Mon no longer has access to a strong military her own doing. As a result, "the New Republic cannot respond as it tries to contend with governing a Galaxy where piracy is out of control. This will of course culminate in the return of Thrawn."

While the New Republic is a far cry from the Empire, it seems there are just as many issues under their watch, albeit of a different type. A lot of this content was originally going to be covered in Rangers of the New Republic but is now being pulled into these other shows after that was cancelled following Gina Carano's firing.

It's going to be a fascinating couple of years for Mon Mothma as we witness both her rise to power and the fall that followed. A fall which ultimately doomed the Galaxy to years of tyranny from the First Order...
