Freddie Prinze Jr. Talks 'Star Wars Rebels'

By: Dominic Jones

The good folks over at Yodas News sat down with Star Wars Rebels star Freddie Prinze Jr. to talk about the series and his character Kanan.  Freddie answered ten questions for them, here's a taste of what he had to say, 

Lea: What do you do to get into Kanan’s character for a “Rebels” recording session? Is it a method acting mentality when you all get together?
Freddie: To me the Jedi are samurai. Disciplined, loyal, alone but not lonely. With Kanan, that was his life, was. At a young age his master is taken, I can’t say how, season 2 greatness. So now you have a kid, trained as a Jedi, who doesn’t question his worthiness in battle but certainly is more street than book-smart, forced into a roll of leadership. So he’s cocky, but complicated. He’s patient but aggressive. Tough line to walk as far as staying true to the Jedi rules we all know and respect. The writers and Dave (Filoni) do a great job of making him pay when he goes astray so my job is simple; once I have THAT guy in my head and Dave breaks down the world around us its just about committing to the moment, regardless of how heavy or light the moment is.

Mark: Lando Calrissian from “The Empires Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi” makes his return to the galaxy with “Idiot’s Array,” that aired January 19 on Disney XD in the US, how awesome is that and did you have a chance to catch up with him when he did his lines?
F: The Lando episode was such a trip to read let alone perform. You know the writers were geeking out/steel cage fighting it out to write that episode. We weren’t able to record with Billy, but we had his recording to work with. He’s a living legend.
