Star Wars Rebels Video - Meet Zeb

The McQuarrie Wookie comes to life

It looks like there is no stopping Lucasfilm and Disney with news on the upcoming Star Wars Rebels. Here is the latest character to arrive, Zeb or better to be known by “the muscle”. In case you are wondering where you have heard that voice before, Steven Blum who voices Zeb has also done Marvel’s Wolverine for years. Check out Zeb’s profile and pictures below. Mania has images of Zeb’s action figure and LEGO figure here!

Press Release: Every team needs a tough guy. Introducing Zeb, the (smart) muscle of the Ghost crew from Lucasfilm’s upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels. He is revealed for the first time in this video, featuring concept art, clay sculpts, and final renderings of the character, in addition to creator interviews.
 
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’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.”

My son and I are looking forward to this and glad to see they are making intelligent characters who also kick butt.

 I like it, he looks like the original concept for what Chewbacca looked like. That's a nice nod to the past and yet making him new. Fun fun fun.
