New Star Wars Character Video: Zeb, the Muscle


A new character video has just been posted for LucasFilm’s upcoming animated series, Star Wars Rebels. The video introduces yet another character, this time the muscle of the Ghost crew, Zeb. The video features concept art, clay sculpts, as well as the final renderings of the character. There’s also an interview with the creators.

You can look at the video below:

While seemingly smart himself, Zeb’s main strengths lie in his muscle, serving as the powerhouse of the Ghost crew. A well-trained and highly educated honor guard, Zeb hides it all in a façade of brutish, alien appearance. “He’s got a bit of a chip on his shoulder, hates Chopper and is starting to build a relationship with Ezra, begrudgingly,” says voice actor Steven Blum.

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.

Star Wars Rebels is scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel and will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
