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.

Plot summary

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 incorrectly states that "Property of Ezra Bridger" is an episode of Star Wars Rebels, when in reality it is a bonus short that was created in promotion of the series.[3]
