“Star Wars” fans will be delighted to know that to build up the anticipation towards its October release date, Disney has been releasing shorts, highlighting the brand-new characters that they are launching in the new series. This time around, they have released a short clip from the actual series featuring Zeb. Read on to learn more about this story.
According to Flying Ninja Kick, the short, which will be officially released on Monday, Aug. 25, 2014, will be featuring the character of Zeb, the muscle of the group.
In the short, Zeb has a mission to fulfill. However, he got distracted as a group of Stormtroopers converged on him. He managed to fight them all off using his skills as a fighter and a warrior. During the fight, he received a call, asking him if he has finished the mission and if Zeb is fighting at that very moment. Zeb then blamed the circumstance, saying that he couldn’t help it as the fight was the one that came to him.
The alien Zeb will be portrayed by actor Steve Blum, who is known for his voice-acting work in television, video games and films such as “Stitch!” (2008–2010), “Jonah He” (2010), “Final Fantasy XIV” (2010), “Wolverine” (2011), “X-Men” (2011), “Star Wars: The Old Republic” (2011), “Ben 10: Omniverse” (2013–2014) and “The Legend of Korra” (2012–2014).
“Star Wars Rebels” will premiere on Disney on Oct. 13, 2014. However, a one-hour animated movie entitled “Star Wars: Spark of Rebellion” will premiere on all media platforms on Sept. 29, 2014 and on Disney Channel on Oct. 3, 2014. This movie will usher in the new series.
The animated film is set in between the events of “Star Wars Episode III” and “Star Wars Episode IV,” around five years before the events in “Episode IV.” At that time, the people were without hope as the Galactic Republic and the trusty Jedi Knights were no longer in being. However, out of this time of darkness emerged a group of unlikely heroes, who would later go on to be the catalysts of the rebellion against the Empire.
And that’s the latest scoop on the recently released short on the character Zeb from Disney XD’s “Star Wars Rebels.” For more news and updates on “Star Wars Rebels” and other television shows, keep on following Movie News Guide (MNG).
