Meet the Inquisitor, The New Face of Evil in ‘Star Wars Rebels’!

television-news-and-talkToday at the New York Comic Con, fans that attended the Star Wars Rebels panel received the first look at the Inquisitor, the new face of evil in the upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated series. He will be playing a prominent role in the series, as he has been tasked by Darth Vader to hunt down the remaining Jedi Knights. Pretty cool design if I do say so myself, it seems to fit in nicely with the Sith style of apparel.

There is also a special video that was screened at the end of the panel (now available below too), where Star Wars Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni officially revealed the new character, showing a sculpted maquette, design sketches and more. As you can see from the video, the Empire is going to be a major part of this new series too. The designs and ideas will be taking direct inspiration from the original trilogy and its concept artist Ralph McQuarrie. From what we have seen so far, I think this look just awesome. You can check it all out below. (Source: StarWars.com)

UPDATE: There is a great interview with Dave Filoni over at the LA Times’ Hero Complex along with a new piece of Star Wars Rebels art that I have mirrored below.
