Our friends over at Making Star Wars have received some very interesting information about the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels. While not earth-shattering, these details give us more insight into the plot and characters and even align with some previous rumors we've heard.
Warning: possible minor spoilers ahead!
- Ezra was born in the first year of the Empire.
- Ezra lives in a radio tower and collects stormtrooper helmets
- Sabine has a way of making her explosions look beautiful.
- A Devaronian named Vizago is an underground dealer/crime lord on Lothal.
- Kanan is in possession of a holocron.
- Kessel Spice mines will appear
- Lots of Wookiees.
- Obi-Wan does appear in the pilot, but only as a holographic recording.
TheForce.net also released a report that backs up Making Star Wars saying that not only will Obi-Wan appear in the pilot, but he will be voiced by James Arnold Taylor.
Obviously some of this we may have heard before, or simply assumed it after watching the trailers. But this does give more depth to Rebels, and makes the anticipation for it's premiere all the more stronger. It'll be nice to have a Clone Wars alumni like James Arnold Taylor appear on the show so soon. And featuring long talked about locations like Kessel and classic aliens like Wookiees will give it good Star Wars feel to it. I can't wait!
