Entertainment Weekly has officially revealed who will be playing The Inquisitor in “Star Wars Rebels,” and it is actor Jason Isaacs. The Inquisitor was the final character we were waiting to find out who would be playing him, and now it looks like we know the full main cast of “Star Wars Rebels.” Here is how Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo describes the character, as well as a new video about the The Inquisitor:
“He’s cold, he’s analytical, he doesn’t get angry,” said Lucasfilm Story Group’s Pablo Hidalgo. “We all took care to make sure our villains have real presence and our heroes just can’t walk all over him. This isn’t like cartoons I grew up with in the 80s where you’d have the villain lose every week and yet every week we’d have to believe he’s some sort of threat. When The Inquisitor shows up, it means something significant and it’s a definite challenge for our heroes.”
The Inquisitor is definitely shaping up to be a great new villain in the Star Wars universe, and it’s really great to hear that he just won’t be a villain who the heroes defeat on every episode, but someone who will be a real threat.
