Having initially revealed the character during New York Comic-Con, Lucasfilm has released two more images (this time in action figure form) of The Inquisitor, a new villain set to debut on the upcoming animated series “Star Wars Rebels“. Shown below as part of the 3.75-inch “Star Wars Rebels” Saga Legends line, The Inquisitor is a Jedi hunter in the employ of the Galactic Empire.
The upcoming series is set between the events of Episode III and IV — an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen. It takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.
“Star Wars Rebels” will be produced by Lucasfilm Animation, featuring many of the key talents that made “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” It is scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, and will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
