Zeb from Star Wars Rebels © LucasfilmDisney XD and Lucasfilm today introduced a new character from the ‘Star Wars Rebels’ series. Zeb is a well-trained honor guard and is highly educated, according to executive producer Dave Filoni, which juxtaposes his brutish, alien appearance. He’s voiced by Steve Blum, who says, ‘He’s got a bit of a chip on his shoulder, hates Chopper and is starting to build a relationship with Ezra, begrudgingly.’

Zeb from Star Wars Rebels © LucasfilmZeb’s favorite pastime: beating up Stormtroopers, or bucket heads, as he’s heard calling them. He’s an agile fighter, using his hands, feet, and acrobatics. But there is more to Zeb than pounding Imperials. ‘It’s just going to be exciting to develop him and his bizarre new species,’ says Filoni, ‘and to explain to the audience where he came from.’

‘Star Wars Rebels’ Character Reveal: Ezra, New Teasers Debut February 17

Ezra in 'Star Wars Rebes' © LucasfilmIn ‘Star Wars Rebels, fans will see the rise of the Rebellion through Ezra: a 14-year-old con artist who learns to fight for a greater good. The seemingly-reluctant hero was revealed earlier in a video filled with character concept art, early animation, and creator interviews, which you will find embedded below.

Growing up on his own in the age of the Empire, Ezra has had to rely on his wit and cunning to get by. As voice actor Taylor Gray explains, ‘He’s very street-smart, he’s a pickpocket, he’s a little thief. But he’s doing it all because he needs to survive.’ Executive producer Dave Filoni adds that Ezra is not a bad kid. Although he may enjoy stealing from the Empire, his behavior has been influenced by the world around him — a world that is under Imperial control.
