‘Star Wars Rebels’ (Disney XD) Sneak Peek: Meet the Muscle

Star Wars Rebels

Earlier this week, Disney XD introduced Star Wars Rebels‘ young, con artist protagonist Ezra, and now we get to meet the series’ heavy, Zeb.

While Zeb will be the muscle of the group, he’s not your typical all brawn, no brains type. Instead, Zeb is strong and articulate, which throws people who meet him off guard. “He’s got a bit of a chip on his shoulder, hates Chopper and is starting to build a relationship with Ezra, begrudgingly,” says voice actor Steve Blum, who brings Zeb to life.

The big guy is also an alien whose species has never appeared in the Star Wars mythos before, and part of his arc will involve unraveling his past. For more on Zeb, watch the video below and check out the concept art for the character in the gallery.

Star Wars Rebels premieres Fall 2014 with a one-hour special on the Disney Channel before moving to its regular home on Disney XD.
