Zeb from Star Wars: Rebels revealed!


Andy
  • Zeb is the latest Rebels character to be revealed for Disney's upcoming animated series.

Zeb Orrelios has been described as "the muscle" of the crew of the Ghost, and will be voiced by veteran anime and video game voice actor Steve Blum.

Blum spoke to IGN about his reaction to being cast in Star Wars: Rebels.

"I think I actually screamed when I was booked to play Zeb. It is literally a role of a lifetime. I've been lucky enough to play some major superhero roles in my career, but to be given the chance to play a newcharacter in a Star Wars series? Brain explosion. As if working on a Star Wars series - in any capacity - wasn't enough to cause a grown man to squee, Zeb challenges every acting skill in my arsenal and beyond. His character design is amazing. I get to vocally take on ape-like physical power and abilities, a wicked sense of humor, intelligence and integrity, and so much more that I can't yet reveal. The attention to detail from the entire production team is inspiring. Every bit of minutia is carefully crafted to satisfy the most discerning fan of the franchise. I'm humbled and honored to be a part of the Rebels crew. I promise I will dig as deep as I'm allowed to give you guys the performance I would hope for as a fan. Get ready, guys. You're in for one helluva ride."

Blum adds Rebels to his extensive list of voice credits, which includes everything from Cowboy Bebop to Wolverine and the X-Men, and even several other Star Wars titles including Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and The Force Unleashed.

Zeb's species is so far unknown, but is based on the original Ralph McQuarrie concept art for Chewbacca.

    • Disney reveals Star Wars Land concept art

      Disney has revealed concept art for the upcoming Star Wars Land theme park to views of Disneyland's diamond celebration television special, The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60.
      A Star Wars theme park has been rumored ever since Disney picked up the franchise from George Lucas, and was finally confirmed by chairman Bob Iger during Disney's D23 Expo in August 2015.
      The show featured some artwork we already saw from D23, but also revealed new information about the 14 acre park which will feature a Millennium Falcon ride and an interactive experience of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Other areas shown in the previews include a restaurant, cantina, and a walkthrough street bazaar.
      The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60 is available to watch on ABC’s official site.
    • Disney confirms Star Wars theme park attractions

      Disney have officially confirmed that plans are under way to create Star Wars themed lands at their theme parks.
      CEO Bob Iger has finally put an end to months of rumor and speculation regarding Disney's plans for Star Wars theme parks by announcing that both Hollywood Studios in Orlando, and Disneyland in Anaheim will be host to fully themed Star Wars lands.
      The announcement was made at Disney's D23 Expo and details ambitious plans for the two new areas, which would each be over 14-acres in size. Iger explained that they aim to push the boundaries of what is possible and that these new parks will take that aim to a new level, giving fans a whole galaxy to explore.
      There will be two signature attractions, including a Millennium Falcon flight simulator and an epic adventure that promises to put guests in the midst of a climactic battle.
      While fans wait for Star Wars land to become a reality, Disney will continue to update it's attractions, with a The Force Awakens update coming to the Star Tours ride later this year, and a new attraction called the Launch Bay which will allow fans to see Star Wars props and costumes and artwork.
      Also, next year will see the first 'Season of the Force' at the Orlando and Anaheim parks with exclusive events, with Space Mountain becoming Hyperspace Mountain with Star Wars music, visual effects, and more.
      It has yet to be announced whether these additions will also be replicated at Disney's international locations.
