The villainous Agent Kallus is the right hand man to the Inquisitor in the new "Star Wars Rebels" series. (Lucasfilm)

Though we can't embed it here, if you click the link below you can see a vid which features some more footage from the show, and you can also hear Kallus speak.

"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 takes place between Star Wars: Episode III and IV as the Empire tightens its grip on the galaxy and a rebellion begins to form. The series, executive produced by Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg, and Greg Weisman, 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.

Oyelowo definitely has the voice of an Imperial. I'm growing more and more confident in this show.

Guys go watch the video, there is some weird concept art showing Agent Kallus looking exactly like Thrawn from the EU. Possible connection?

Can't wait for this show
ndwwrestler2 - 7/10/2014, 8:05 AM
@Unreal2k9 It's probably an idea they were throwing around, having Kallus look like a Chiss.
EzioKenway1225 - 7/10/2014, 8:14 AM
i want chops like that!!

They should have just left out The Inquisitor and made him the main villain.
EzioKenway1225 - 7/10/2014, 8:22 AM
then i wonder who is the voicing The Inquisitor,i thought for sure Oyelowo was doing The Inquisitors voice
SuperCat - 7/10/2014, 8:25 AM
Sideburns are just pure evil!
ndwwrestler2 - 7/10/2014, 8:25 AM
@EzioKenway1225 From what I've heard from the Inquisitor, it sounds like James Arnold Taylor, the guy who did the voice for Obi Wan Kenobi in the Clone Wars series.

But a lot of reports say that it's Jason Isaacs.

[frick] this show. The Empire is dead. Move on. Tell stories that don't lead to a story we have already seen, dumbass prequel loving [frick]s.

Star Wars Sabretooth? When did Victor Creed leave the Marvel Universe for this?
EzioKenway1225 - 7/10/2014, 8:35 AM
imdb (which can be pretty unreliable) is saying that the voice of The Inquisitor is done by Jason Isaacs
EzioKenway1225 - 7/10/2014, 8:37 AM
ndwwrestler-yeah ,i just saw that, that is a pretty cool choice ,if true
Nomis - 7/10/2014, 8:40 AM
@ Supercat - Naw man, 'Burns ain't evil...it just let everyone know that YOU know "where it's really at" (old school term for knowing "what time it is")

Back in the day, all the hip brothers had some 'burns!
