First Look At Ezra, One Of Star Wars Rebels Main Characters

Star Wars Rebels continues to take shape towards it's premiere this Fall and as we await news on Episode VII.  Today we have a new character named Ezra who is described as  a charismatic teenage con artist who gets drawn to fight for the Rebels.  It also turns out he has Force powers and has been taking care of himself all these years before being drawn into the fight. Producer Dave Filoni and he told TV Guide this about Ezra: "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."  Star Wars Rebels will debut with a one hour special this Fall before going to series!
