I'm not sure if cows exist in the Star Wars universe, but apparently cowboys do. Disney XD's upcoming Star Wars Rebels has just released our first look at a new character dubbed the 'Cowboy Jedi '.
The character named, Kanan, is introduced in a new video featuring loads of pre-visualization special effects and artwork. Furthermore, he's voiced by none other than . You remember him, right? The guy who got off with and ruined your adolescent dreams. You can meet Kanan in the video below:
In an interview with USA Today, Prinze Jr. went into more detail about Kanan and what it's like to join the Star Wars franchise. He said:
For people who are around our age and a bit older, Star Wars is in our DNA. I’ve heard ‘May the Force be with you’ about as many times as ‘Hey, how you doing?'
Regarding Kanan, he continued:
He’s been forced to shove a massive part of his life under the bed, so to speak. Is he living a lie? At a certain point, the lie kind of becomes the reality. And to suddenly be forced back into your Jedi ways, it’d be a bit of a challenge for him. And pretty awesome, too, when you can see what a Jedi can actually do... He definitely has seen more than what a young man should see. And what he had to see was pretty much the worst thing you would have to witness.
