Featured, Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Television, Videos

TV Guide on Friday introduced a new character in the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels: 14-year-old Ezra, who will be audiences’ guide to life under Imperial rule.

According to some LEGO playsets spotlighted at GeekTyrant, this streetwise youth’s full name is Ezra Bridger, and he’ll fly a small ship called The Phantom while wearing an appropriated stormtrooper-style helmet. There’s also a playset for the aforementioned starship Ghost, crewed by aliens Zeb Orrellos and Hera Syndulla and the human Jedi Kanan Jarrus, who was revealed last week to be played by Freddie Prinze Jr. Kanan will serve as a mentor to young Ezra.

Star Wars Rebels is slated for a fall release this year.
