The news is coming in thick and fast now for Star Wars Rebels. TVGuide in the US have posted a picture of a new character from the upcoming animated Star Wars series. The name is EZRA
Ezra is played by Taylor Gray, who starred in the Nickelodeon series Bucket & Skinner’s Epic Adventures. “I’m excited to voice the role of Ezra in Star Wars Rebels but I’m even more excited to be a part of the Star Wars legacy,” Gray says. “I can’t wait for fans new and existing to come together and see the next chapter in the most legendary tale known in the galaxy.”
Filoni chose Gray for the role because his voice wasn’t too contemporary. “I don’t want to sound like I just went down to the local mall [to cast the role],” says Filoni, who also oversaw the previous Star Wars animated series, The Clone Wars. “There’s a rawness to him that feels very authentic. Taylor really seems to be able to occupy the character in this time period of the Star Wars universe. He’s a real kid who’s out there in the galaxy.”
