New image from Star Wars Rebels featuring The Inquisitor

It’s a good time to be a Star Wars fan, what with  Star Wars: Episode VII on the horizon and the new animated series Star Wars Rebels due to premiere on Disney XD this year. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’ve got a new image from the series featuring The Inquisitor, a newly-created villain who’s been tasked by the Emperor to hunt down and destroy the remaining Jedi Knights (while Vader sulks about killing Padme, presumably)…

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.


Star Wars Rebels is produced by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class) and Greg Weisman (Young Justice) and features a voice cast that includes David Oyelowo (Lee Daniels’ The Butler), Freddie Prinze Jr. (Scooby-Doo), Vanessa Marshall (Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox), Taylor Gray (Bucket and Skinner’s Epic Adventures) and Steve Blum (The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes).
