the-inquisitor-star-wars-rebels

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.
