For those of you who have been wanting to know more about Zeb in the upcoming ‘Star Wars Rebels‘ today’s short story puts him front and center! Don’t expect this one to at all be getting artsy like the short that focused on Sabine.

What happens when you mix muscle, snark, a hate for the Empire, and base it all off an original concept design for Chewbacca before he was changed to the hairy beast that we know and love? Well, we get Zeb! Below you can check him out taking care of a group of Stormtroopers and it makes you think that the rebellion really should have grabbed more of his race as soldiers.

Talk about a piece of work. Clearly we’ll be seeing some of the comic relief coming from Zeb when the series kicks off.

Are you going to be checking out ‘Star Wars Rebels’ when it premieres? Now that you’ve seen more of him what do you think of Zeb?


‘Star Wars Rebels’ continues the epic tradition of the legendary ‘Star Wars’ saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes.

‘Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion’ is scheduled to premiere October 3rd, 2014 at 9 p.m. ET on the Disney Channel as a one hour special with the series then heading to its home network at Disney XD on October 13th, 2014 at 9 p.m. ET.
