Jason Isaacs To Voice 'The Inquisitor' In Disney XD's STAR WARS REBELS

British actor Jason Isaacs has been cast as the lead villain not in one of the upcoming live-action Star Wars movies, but in the upcoming Disney XD animated series which will bridge the gap between the prequels and original trilogy. Hit the jump for details and a new teaser!


Entertainment Weekly have confirmed that Harry Potter baddie Jason Isaacs will voice The Inquisitor in Star Wars Rebels, the villain who is tasked with tracking down and taking out the surviving Jedi on behalf of the Empire. He's part of the Pau'an race and who exactly will be voicing him has been a hot topic of discussion among fans since he was revealed as the Disney XD series' first character. "He’s cold, he’s analytical, he doesn’t get angry," Lucasfilm Story Group’s Pablo Hidalgo told the site. "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." Star Wars Rebels launches this Fall with a one hour special. Also below is a new featurette for the series focusing on the Inquisitor. What do you think?
