Geek Of The Week: Ezra Bridger

Geek Of The Week: Ezra Bridger

After having Sabine Wren as a GOTW a couple weeks ago, it’s only fair that we have Ezra Bridger this week. Bridger is not only one of the first rebels in Star Wars, but also one of the last Jedi knights. He was trained by Kanan Jarrus, one of the few Jedi that survived Order 66. Bridger builds two lightsabers throughout the series and becomes the first person to step foot in both the Sith and Jedi temples. He also opens both holocrons.

Force-sensitive Bridger was born on the planet Lothal and his parents were some of the first people to speak out against the Galactic Empire. It’s as if being a rebel was in his blood. Throughout the Star Wars: Rebels series, Bridger and friends battle the Empire paving the way for famous rebels like Princess Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker. BTW, if you’ve never seen the series, it is really good.
