STAR WARS REBELS: Meet Kanan, The "Cowboy Jedi"

STAR WARS REBELS: Meet Kanan, The "Cowboy Jedi"

USA Today have debuted our first glimpse at another new Star Wars Rebels character in the form of the cocky Kanan. This "cowboy Jedi" will be voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr. and you can find out all about him by checking out a video and some images after the jump.

"Star Wars Rebels’ continues the epic tradition of the legendary ‘Star Wars’ saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people.

But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship “Ghost.” Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes."

Star Wars Rebels will be with us sometime this year. More at the link below.

Yo Grif will you shut the [frick] up about Jesse Eisenberg already?! I mean damn fool do you ever get tired of saying the same shit over and over again?

Annoying prick.

@ Grif

You $hit remarks were funny as first and now you just becoming annoying as frick.......You are really making me think you have some form of Aspergers.
pointman - 2/11/2014, 2:58 PM
Dang. Freddie got gray headed!
Lockeeeee - 2/11/2014, 3:00 PM
I really liked him in Mass Effect 3 so he's welcome to this.
DrainBamage - 2/11/2014, 3:00 PM
I'll only watch this after they assure us we'll get a proper finale to Clone Wars. I'm not going to get involved with another SW show if they're not going to finish what they start for the fans.
OnePunchBaldy - 2/11/2014, 3:02 PM
Freddie Prinze Jr.?!?! Okay I'm in.
wookiefit - 2/11/2014, 3:05 PM
So this guy is gonna die, right?
wookiefit - 2/11/2014, 3:06 PM
@ Grif

I'm still laughing. More because it's obviously pissing people off.
OnePunchBaldy - 2/11/2014, 3:07 PM
Seems like a really cool character too. But there will only be one space cowboy

wookiefit - 2/11/2014, 3:08 PM
He looks mad in that pic. Doesn't he know anger leads to the dark side.

I hope he dies. More for the soul patch than anything else.
GoldSlayer1 - 2/11/2014, 3:09 PM
is this some sort of story expansion for star wars?
JoeMomma29 - 2/11/2014, 3:10 PM
@ Yoss

You call that doing your thing??????? I call it insanity!
wookiefit - 2/11/2014, 3:11 PM
So I asked this before, but never got an answer. Since I stopped reading the "Last of the Jedi" series around book 3. When did the Inquisitor get a lightsaber? Or is he from the Inquisitorius and is a different character all together?

so this

Plus This

equals This

LeonardTheWise - 2/11/2014, 3:13 PM
He looks a lot like Rahm Kota from the first The Force Unleashed game... He has even that same type of beard and pony Tail...
ndwwrestler2 - 2/11/2014, 3:16 PM
A Cowboy Jedi? I AM IN!!!
ralfinader - 2/11/2014, 3:17 PM
Sucks. Wake me up when Star Wars has finally let go of the prequel bullshit and moves beyond RotJ.
sameoldthing - 2/11/2014, 3:21 PM
Ugh..stupid ponytail on his head is annoying.
sameoldthing - 2/11/2014, 3:22 PM
Ugh..stupid beard minus moustsche is annoying.
OnePunchBaldy - 2/11/2014, 3:22 PM

I was thinking the same thing. would be cool to turn out to be Kota
ComicBookGoth - 2/11/2014, 3:23 PM
its neat.

but i hope the few jedi we see start to intigrate armor like he is with the pauldron.

more like Kota or the Swtor characters.

Joe, where's the avatar from? I think it's f*ckin' creepy for some reason.
Killuminatic - 2/11/2014, 3:30 PM
Oh I love this site... I like the fact that some of you guys have the urge to bash the only person on the site who gives an actual, somewhat crudely, opinionated input on the subject matter. The only person who'll never respond to any crap being thrown at him. Oh the irony... Why would you even bother?

Anyhow, I hope this show has that mature edge which balances out the humour and quirkiness that mostly keeps the kids in line.
JoeMomma29 - 2/11/2014, 3:30 PM
@ Cipher

It is from a show called "Attack on Titan", if you have Netflix or Hulu I highly recommend you watch the show. The show is based on giant humanoid creatures that humans for no reason at all. The humans live in cities surrounded by giant walls to keep them out.

marvel72 - 2/11/2014, 3:30 PM
looking forward to this show.
JoeMomma29 - 2/11/2014, 3:32 PM
@ Cipher

marvel72 - 2/11/2014, 3:33 PM
@ grif

never change,i agree with you,i just don't keep saying it.
ibravosp5 - 2/11/2014, 3:34 PM
Hmm, weird output of the ponytail, I think it would've probably been cooler to see a shaved head
ALegendaryPanda - 2/11/2014, 3:34 PM

I'm not even sure what you just said.
wookiefit - 2/11/2014, 3:35 PM
@ AlphaFlexXx

Ha! I can't tell if you need a period (.) to break up the sentences or if you have tourettes. You seem a little mad. Just a bit. I'm expecting "you mad bro" pics to be popping up any moment.
JoeMomma29 - 2/11/2014, 3:35 PM
@ Panda

Do not bother at this point you and I are the bad guys.......
cipher - 2/11/2014, 3:35 PM
Joe- Ah, I see. Heh, looks like some crazy shit.. I'll probably check it out.


Shaanyboi - 2/11/2014, 3:39 PM
Love the concept behind the character.
JoeMomma29 - 2/11/2014, 3:39 PM
@ Cipher

ALegendaryPanda - 2/11/2014, 3:41 PM

Yeah I guess the way to get fans on this site is to type some variation of "shit movie" or "[frick] Jesse Eisenberg" on every single article. Smh
