Last week, we got a Star Wars Rebels featurette focusing on the Imperial Security Bureau’s Agent Kallus (David Oyelowo) aka the “Rebel Hunter”. This week, we have a featurette for another baddie, the Inquisitor. Despite the chalk-white face, red tattoos, and yellow eyes, the showrunners make clear that the Inquisitor is not a Sith even though he also has a red lightsaber. The showrunners also make clear that the Inquisitor has a personality distinct from the saga’s other major baddies, Darth Maul and Darth Vader. But most importantly, this featurette reveals that the character is voiced by Jason Isaacs, and that alone tells you the character is evil. I’m sure Isaacs is a lovely human being, but his voice is the sweet sound of vengeful wrath.
Hit the jump to check out the Star Wars Rebels featurette. The show also features the voices of Freddie Prinze Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray, and Steven Jay Blum. Star Wars Rebels premieres this fall with a one-hour telecast on Disney Channel, followed by the full series on Disney XD.
While it's admirable to put yourself in harm's way in the defense of others, that altruism eventually ends with a blade between the ribs or being thrown into a prison cell. George R.R. Martin's gift to his characters just keeps on giving.
In the first Red Nose Day special on American shores (benefitting the charity Comic Relief), celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, Anna Kendrick, and even Kermit the Frog all showed up to participate in the live telecast.
