We know The Inquisitor is going to be main villain for “Star Wars Rebels,” but we also knew from the toys and trailer about another villain who’s going to be in the series, the Imperial Officer Agent Kallus. Well today the character was officially unveiled over at the LA Times Hero Complex in an article and introduction video, where we learn that actor David Oyelowo will be voicing the villain. You can check out the introduction video above, along with some words about Agent Kallus from Dave Filoni from the LA Times Hero Complex:
“We definitely wanted to capture that ’70s feeling that was so strong in ‘A New Hope,’” says Filoni. “Art director Kilian Plunkett and I looked at a lot of reference to try and make that influence fit into ‘Rebels.’ At one point we had [Rebel pilot] Zeb in bell bottoms.”
“We actually had David read for several different parts,” Filoni said. “We knew we wanted to use him, but weren’t quite sure where.”
It’s great to have another character reveal from “Star Wars Rebels,” and this time have it be for one of the villains. Be sure to check out the full article about the Agent Kallus reveal over at the LA Times Hero Complex.
