the grand inquisitor from star wars rebels

Earlier today we told you how a character created for the Star Wars animated series may have already appeared in one of the original trilogy films. Well, that’s not the only bit of Star Wars canon retcon we have for you today. Did you know that we already saw The Grand Inquisitor during The Clone Wars?

During the first season of Star Wars Rebels, the Grand Inquisitor was tasked by Darth Vader with taking out the possible Jedi in our hero’s rebel faction. We never got to find out the backstory of the Grand Inquisitor, but his appearance in an episode of Star Wars Rebels season two got some fans wondering about his origins. And as it turns out, show runner Dave Filoni confirms that we’ve seen the Grand Inquisitor before. Learn the details of The Grand Inquisitor’s backstory after the jump.

Filoni talked about the possibility at the world premiere of the Star Wars Rebels season two finale (no spoilers for that episode, I promise). Learn the details after the jump.
