It was announced some time ago that Freddie Prinze Jr. was cast in Star Wars Rebels, but who he would play remained unkown. USA Today got an exclusive video that introduces Kanan, a Jedi who is part gunslinger and captain of The Ghost. Freddie talks about doing the voice work for the character of Kanan, whom the creative team has dubbed "the cowboy jedi."
Lots of geeks had speculated that their would be no Jedi in Star Wars Rebels because it is set in the time period between Episodes III and IV. I guess we can expect to see a good number of lightsaber duels on the show.
