Rumor: More 'Star Wars Rebels' Character Names and Descriptions

By: Dominic Jones

As production on the first season of the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels set to debut this fall on Disney XD ramps up more details about the series are starting to leak out, specifically character names.  Our friends over at Jedi News have heard from an inside source the names of several of the characters:

"On board the Ghost we will encounter:

- Kannan Jarrus

- Hera Syndulla - a Twilek whose family we have met before, and may well meet again.

- Zeb - the gunner, and trusty sidekick.

On board the Phantom we will encounter:

- Ezra Bridger - a renegade Imperial Cadet, who learns of their Force sensitivities through a highly sought Holocron - the very item The Inquisitor is commanded to retrieve by his Emperor.  Bridger dresses in some customized Imperial gear.

The last name Syndulla should be familiar to fans of The Clone Wars where we encountered Chan Syndulla, a Twilek freedom fighter (or rebel, if you will) on the planet Ryloth.  Sounds like, if these rumors prove to be true, rebellion runs in that family.  Also interesting is the character of Ezra, who it seems is Force sensitive and will attempting to learn the ways of the Force.  Perhaps this explains the "The Jedi will rise" line from the teaser trailer.  Also, not to read too much into these but I must point out the Emperor is mentioned, could we see a cameo from Darth Sidious in the premiere?  Only time will tell.

As always, this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.
