Ezra and the Pilot is a World of Reading Level 2 young readers book in the Star Wars Rebels series that was released on August 5, 2014. The story was adapted by Lucasfilm senior editor Jennifer Heddle based on the script for the Star Wars Rebels prequel short "Property of Ezra Bridger," written by series executive producer Simon Kinberg.
Lothal orphan Ezra Bridger witnesses a battle in the skies overhead between the starship Ghost and a TIE fighter of the Galactic Empire. After the TIE fighter is shot down and crashes to the ground, Bridger rushes to the wrecked ship and finds that its cockpit hatch will not open, leaving the TIE fighter's pilot trapped inside. Bridger eventually opens the hatch, but the TIE fighter pilot shows no gratitude for being saved and instead angrily rebukes Bridger for touching his ship.
To teach the arrogant pilot a lesson, Bridger steals several components from the TIE fighter, including the pilot's flight helmet. Angered further, the pilot opens fire on Bridger with the TIE fighter's laser cannons, but Bridger incapacitates the pilot with his energy slingshot. The pilot's helmet now belongs to Bridger.

- Ezra and the Pilot
- "Property of Ezra Bridger", which Ezra and the Pilot adapts, takes place in between Ezra's Gamble and Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion. Ezra Bridger is 14 years old in both Ezra's Gamble and Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, meaning that Ezra must also be 14 in Ezra and the Pilot. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places Ezra's birth in 19 BBY, meaning that Ezra's Gamble, Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, "Property of Ezra Bridger", and Ezra and the Pilot all take place in 5 BBY.
