Star Wars Rebels Ezra street smart

Disney and Lucasfilm Animation are continuing to ramp up their promotion and plot revelations for the upcoming animated series Star Wars: Rebels with the video first-look at their newest character, Ezra, which you can watch below.

Ezra is described as a 14-year-old con artist living on the streets who steals from the Empire unaware, at the beginning of the series anyway, that there is a resistance forming against it.

Taylor Gray, a voice artist who portrays Ezra, 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 also reveals that Ezra is sensitive to the Force, even he if doesn’t understand what it is he is experiencing. It is more “instinctive and reactionary” than anything he truly has control over. Ezra will eventually begin to learn and use the ways of the Force via a Kanan, a Jedi who survived Order 66, and now runs the crew of the shuttle Ghost.

It is through Ezra that the audience of Star Wars: Rebels, which takes place in the years between Episode III and Episode IV, will see the rise of the Rebellion. If Kanan is being groomed to be the stand-in surrogate of Han Solo in this series, then Ezra will no doubt be our Luke Skywalker.

Star Wars: Rebels is set to premiere on the Disney Channel later this year, before moving over to Disney XD for the ongoing series. No official dates have been released yet, but with the continued revelation of new characters, hopefully we’ll be hearing some more concrete information soon.
