Disney XD's Star Wars Rebels has been rolling out new character videos over the past few weeks, leading up to the one-hour series premiere on October 3. Following our introductions to Hera and Kanan along with the graffiti tagger Sabine, a new clip has surfaced that features the muscle of the group, Zeb, voiced by Steve Blum. Take a look at this scene below, then read on for more details
When the character was announced back in February, it was revealed that Zeb is part of an alien species that has not yet been explored in the Star Wars universe. However, this character was inspired by Ralph McQuarrie's character design for Chewbacca in the original Star Wars trilogy. Zeb serves as the group's strongman, as we can see in the above clip where he has no problem handling a few Stormtroopers on his own.
However, it seems that Zeb also has a problem with authority, so we'll have to see how that plays out with the other main characters, Hera (Vanessa Marshall), Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Sabine (Tiya Sircar) and Ezra (Taylor Gray).
The full short will debut Monday, August 25 between 9:29 and 9:32 PM, following a new episode of Gravity Falls on Disney XD. The fourth and final short will debut on Labor Day, Monday, September 1 at the same time.
