STAR WARS REBELS: Meet Our Main Character, 'Ezra Bridger'

STAR WARS REBELS: Meet Our Main Character, 'Ezra Bridger'

We got a look at this young fella in LEGO form earlier on, but now we get to see how he'll appear in the upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated series, and find out all about the "charismatic teenage con artist". Click on for a couple of images and a vid.






It seems young Ezra is destined to become a Jedi. Here's what exec producer Dave Filoni had to say to TV Guide about this new character, who certainly sounds like he's set to be the principal protagonist in the show.

“To survive, instinctively every now and then when he’s in a jam he uses the Force. He doesn’t call it that. He doesn’t know that’s what he’s doing. He thinks he’s got some abilities that are a little strange every now and then, but they help him out. It’s instinctive, it’s reactionary. With Ezra we see how a kid is reacting to this imperial rule. That becomes a big question: What is imperial rule like? We’ve seen it in the movies with a big rebellion that ends up blowing up the Death Star, but do we just assume that when the Empire took over in Revenge of the Sith it was seen as a bad thing? I would challenge that. It wasn’t this terrible thing that came in and was cruel to everyone all at once. It was slow to build its power base and spread out, and then we get to see the rebel alliance it affects, and the repercussions of that tyranny.”
