Ezra Bridger
“I want to become the Jedi you see in me – the one I don't always see in myself.”

Ezra Bridger is not your average Lothal teenager. 

Not only did he lose both of his parents at a young age, but he also shares a birthday with the Galactic Empire -- the same regime responsible for his mother and father’s deaths.

Oh -- and he’s also Force-sensitive. It just took him a decade and a half to figure it out.

The moment he collided with the rebellious crew of The Ghost changed everything for Ezra. He left his home planet for the first time. He found a team that wouldn’t leave him behind no matter what, and he finally found something to fight for.

He also opened a holocron only accessible to those strong enough in the Force to train in its use, sealing his fate forever. You know … just your average Tuesday.

For years, Ezra had to fight all on his own to survive. Orphaned and angry, the broken-hearted child eventually became a rebel searching for a cause. The streets of Lothal needed him. But so did the galaxy at large.

And even after joining Kanan, Hera, and the rest of the crew, it took him a long time to accept that he was no longer alone in the universe. He could be part of something bigger. Time and again, he was. Mission after mission, he understood his purpose more and more.

Ezra’s path to becoming a Jedi came with as many challenges as it did triumphs. His unique connection to the creatures of the universe -- especially on Lothal -- saved him and his friends from certain death more than once. But he also put all of them in danger, following Maul and his dark endeavors while chasing his hope that his parents might one day return to him.

Still, he never lost sight of the things that mattered most. Though he often struggled with patience, trust, and faith in the Force, he overcame every obstacle with the help of Kanan and his friends. His heart was always set on bringing light back to the galaxy, even when he didn’t yet know it.

Through it all, Ezra never forgot where he came from. He vowed never to let the people of Lothal suffer under Imperial rule -- no matter the cost. In this regard, his stubbornness paid off. He never let his love for his home fade away. And that’s why, in the end, he was able to save it.

Just when Grand Admiral Thrawn seemed to have victory in his grasp, Ezra used everything he’d learned as Kanan’s student and along his adventures with his found family to do what needed to be done.

Thank the Force for space whales, right?

While you wait for the highly-anticipated continuation of Ezra Bridger’s story -- Dave Filoni, we have not forgotten about this -- spend some time with the character in the books and comics he appears in.

For those interested in behind-the-scenes content about how the crew responsible for bringing Ezra to life on the small screen, the Rebels visual guide and art book provide more details about his design and the growth of his character over the show’s four seasons.
