Star Wars Rebels: Meet Zeb, the Muscle


Lucasfilm animation continues to release daily character videos to promote Star Wars Rebels coming this fall to Disney XD. Today's character Zeb looks a lot like Ralph McQuarrie's concept art for Chewbacca. As the cast of Rebels grows the relationship between the archetypes of the original trilogy and the series looks more and more familiar. What do you think? Check out the info below from Lucasfilm Animation.

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."
