Star Wars Villain Revealed: Disney Shows Off New Star Wars Rebels Villain (Photo)


We are about a year away from the debut of the new Star Wars television show Star Wars: Rebels on Disney XD but we’re starting to get more and more information about what the show ill be about. Yesterday we saw the first poster for the show as well as our first plot synopsis, and today we got our first look at the main villain of the series named Inquisitor.

Here’s the complete synopsis that was released by Entertainment Weekly when the first batch of information about the show was unveiled for the first time:

‘Star Wars Rebels’ continues the epic tradition of the legendary ‘Star Wars’ saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship “Ghost.” Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes.

The new villain will be hired by Darth Vader in the series to hunt down the remaining Jedi who have survived the purge as well as trying to squash the beginnings of the rebellion that eventually topples the Empire. No voice casting information about the character has been revealed yet but already Inquisitor looks to be added to the ranks of badass Star Wars villains along with Darth Maul and Boba Fett.
