Star Wars Rebels is an upcoming animated series by Lucasfilm that takes place five years before Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. During this time, the Empire rules with an iron fist, and focuses on a group of rebels who have each in some way been affected by the Empire.
The latest trailer above introduces a fearsome antagonist to the series: the Inquisitor, who hunts down any remaining Jedi in the galaxy. The team behind the series says that the Inquisitor will not be a simple ‘carbon copy’ villain, especially when it comes to his on screen presence. It seems he will not be so easily defeated by the good guys. David Isaacs, the actor who played Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies, will be lending his villainous voice for the Inquisitor as well.
Watch the short preview trailer above to see the character development process behind the brutal Inquisitor. Star Wars Rebels is due to be aired “fall 2014”, on Disney XD and the Disney Channel.
