UPDATE: This article was written on June 18 but has now been confirmed by Entertainment Weekly. Update below with new video.
As fans speculate about the villains in Star Wars Episode VII, we know at least one bad guy created in this post-George Lucas universe. His name is The Inquisitor and he’s a lean, mean, lightsaber-swinging, Jedi-killing machine. In the Disney XD show Star Wars Rebels, set between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, he’s tasked by Darth Vader to hunt down the remaining Jedi.
The Inquisitor was the first character introduced from Rebels; since then, we’ve met the entire remaining cast and their human counterparts. During all that, we have yet to find out who will be voicing the Inquisitor. Now, a rumor has surfaced that Jason Isaacs, of Harry Potter and The Patriot fame, will be voicing the character.

The news of a Pacific Rim sequel came with good and bad details. That it’s happening at all is the biggest bit of good news. Guillermo del Toro‘s film wasn’t a massive hit in the United States but did well enough internationally to warrant a sequel. The downside is that fans will have to wait about three years to see the film. Pacific Rim 2 is scheduled for release April 7, 2017.
In the meantime we’ll get two other del Toro movies as well as a nice, sizable appetizer in the Pacific Rim world. A Pacific Rim animated series is in the works. In a new interview, the producer/writer/director explained what the animated series might entail. He exampled how the story would be told and where it might air. Development is still in very early days, but the idea is to bridge the gap between the first and second movie in serialized form. The show is currently being shopped around.

Just when you thought we’d met all of the major characters in Star Wars Rebels, there’s another bad guy to introduce. His name is Agent Kallus and he’s voiced by David Oyelowo. Kallus is described as a “Rebel Hunter,” a member of an internal group whose only purpose is to find and exterminate enemies of the Empire. Which basically means Rebels, like our stars. And some Jedi as well, I’d imagine.
Below, check out a full video introduction of the character. Read More »
