Star Wars: Rebels Exclusive Clip “Inquisitor Vs Kanan”.

The Inquisitor

USA Today shared a new exclusive Rebels clip with The Inquisitor engaged in a lightsaber fight with the Jedi outlaw Kanan. . The show kicks off with a one-hour Disney Channel premiere special on Friday (9 p.m. ET/PT), then begins its first season Oct. 13 on Disney XD.




From USA Today:

Filoni sees the analytical new bad guy, who brandishes a spinning, double-bladed lightsaber, as an “evil version of Sherlock Holmes.”


What makes him really creepy and disturbing for Isaacs is “everybody he encounters is so far beneath his skill level that it doesn’t tax him,” the actor says. “I wanted him to enjoy the chase and enjoy the hunt. He’s not in a panic, nothing’s about to blow up. He can take on any number of adversaries and still have time to read the newspaper and get his nails done.”


The Empire from the movies offered high-ranking Imperial officers and lowly Stormtroopers as cannon fodder, but not much middle management. That’s where Rebels’ Agent Kallus (David Oyelowo) comes in, as an enforcer in the Imperial Security Bureau who revels in squashing seeds of rebellion.


Kallus may not command starships but Oyelowo respects his ambition. “He’s muscle on the ground,” the actor says, “but you can just tell, with every line, with every action he makes, he has his sights set higher.”

Also of note: Kallus’ awesome sideburns and a penchant for fisticuffs. “I’ve had to do quite a bit of grunting and groaning from a voice-work point of view,” Oyelowo says with a laugh.



There’s definitely workplace politics involved in Rebels — the Imperial officers in the Star Wars movies had to put up with Vader and the ways of the Force, and the same goes with the Inquisitor.


“Kallus isn’t pleased this guy is around,” Filoni says. “He’d rather work without him, but it’s procedure. He has to call him and say, ‘Hey, I might have a Jedi problem out here. You better come look at this.’ “


Kanan and his pals aren’t enough of a pain for Kallus to ring Lord Vader yet. Still, Filoni wouldn’t mind getting James Earl Jones into a recording studio and bringing him back to the Dark Side.


“We have a nice history of honoring the great legacy characters,” Filoni teases. “It would be a shame never to have Darth Vader in the show, I’ll say that much.”


Join us in The Cantina on Friday for the Spark of Rebellion premiere party for a friendly discussion with some prizes.

    Looks really cheaply done. I’m sorry, but I have no faith in this series anymore and I havnt even seen the premiere yet.

    • October 1, 2014 at 7:52 pm

      “and I haven’t even seen the premiere yet” lol Maybe you should watch something before completely dismissing it

    • October 2, 2014 at 12:14 am

      The premiere was actually pretty decent. Reserve your judgement.

  • October 1, 2014 at 4:06 pm

    We don’t care about Rebels.

    • October 1, 2014 at 6:39 pm

      Then why do you comment on every Rebels-related update that we post?

      • October 2, 2014 at 5:22 am

        Because the prequels stink.

        I do nothing but think of those money grabbing, poorly executed films when I see this Rebels/Clone Wars Mickey Mouse garbage.

        Good day.

        • October 2, 2014 at 5:56 am

          Cheap, whiny answer. If you don’t like this show then GTFO!

          • October 2, 2014 at 1:32 pm

            It’s funny you insinuate my response was whiny (a.k.a. childish) then tell me to “get the f*ck out”

            Typical prequel fan.. Spoiled, arrogant and foolish.

    • October 1, 2014 at 6:45 pm

      I do.

  • October 1, 2014 at 4:06 pm

    Lightsabers are too thin, like large pencils with a light, or whatever…
    i can see no personality in charatcers development.
    And it’s a shame.

    • October 1, 2014 at 6:38 pm

      You do realize that they’re going for OT thin Lightsabers instead of the PT thick ones, right?

      • October 2, 2014 at 4:04 pm

        Nah, this are exaggeratedly thin, more like….Spaceballs.

        OT are thicker than that

  • October 1, 2014 at 4:43 pm

    You all must hate ANH as well…

    • October 1, 2014 at 5:28 pm

      How does that even make sense?

      • October 1, 2014 at 5:50 pm

        The lightsaber blade has the same effect as that movie.

        • October 1, 2014 at 8:56 pm

          So what? How does that mean people should hate ANH? *sigh* All these PT fans thinking lightsabers are the be all and end all of what makes a good star wars film..

          • October 2, 2014 at 5:25 am

            Exactly! You have perfectly summed up the difference between the 0T and PT. Prequel trilogy has zero brains and it’s all about making cheeky childish fight scenes with those giant glowsticks! Hehe! Next week on Rebels – learn to count to 10!

  • October 1, 2014 at 5:31 pm

    Did I just hear him say ‘Form 3’.. as in Soresu?? Finally, some acknowledgement in the canon regarding lightsaber forms. Good stuff.

  • October 1, 2014 at 6:36 pm

    Looks like fun!

  • October 1, 2014 at 8:11 pm

    How come no one is mentioning the most interesting thing in this post: Filoni’s suggestion that it would “be a shame” not to have Darth Vader back, and specifically referencing James Earl Jones. I WANT THAT.

    • October 2, 2014 at 1:24 am

      if they later on in the show teases that Vader will make an appereance, that would be the most anticipated new star wars material except ep.7 so far 🙂

    • October 2, 2014 at 1:37 pm

      Please Jesus Christ no, they’ve already raped the new characters before the premiere.. Even Chad Vader would seem more menacing than the Rebels version of Darth.

      • October 2, 2014 at 7:34 pm

        Hey, if the Rebels version of Darth Vader is voiced by James Earl Jones, I will watch that (even if it is that alone).

        I’d kind of like to see Chad Vader… maybe Anakin had an unknown sibling after all!

  • October 1, 2014 at 8:33 pm

    Just watched first episode. It wasn’t bad.

  • October 1, 2014 at 9:37 pm

    Fighting looks too choppy.

  • October 1, 2014 at 10:52 pm

    The inquisator has a British smile 🙂
    He looks like he could eat watermelon through a picket fence.
    Looks better than tcw. Not that that is saying much

  • October 2, 2014 at 1:42 am

    As someone who thought this show looked a little goofy. I went ahead and watched the premier and it was better then I expected. I have to give them credit, it was fun and had some funny parts.It wasn’t the greatest thing ever but,If you don’t plan on watching it all I have to say is just give it a shot it might surprise you

  • October 2, 2014 at 2:08 am

    I´ll give this series a chance if only to see what disney has in store for the franchise and roughly see where it is going but, mind you, even if it does suck we cant expect the same of the movies since there are diferent people working on it and its a different time period, plus they havent misteped yet with movies, as far as i can tell (by the way if it does suck they will certainly bring James Earl Jones to play Darth Vader to boost the ratings)

  • October 12, 2014 at 3:00 pm

    Am I the only one who noticed Luminara behind Kanan?

  • December 21, 2014 at 8:01 am

    fucking cooooooooollllllllll

    Monica, Jefferson was from Wonderland, which was a whole different world from FTL, and the curse afefcted him differently than it did anyone else. He always remembered who he was. So maybe his daughter might not have been afefcted in the same way everyone else was maybe she didn’t wake up when the curse was broken??The scene with Jefferson left a lot of unanswered questions. Why did his car turn over? Where was he going when he crashed? Why did he have the tea set and the stuffed bunny? Why did he run away from David? I’m leaning towards thinking that someone kidnapped Pinocchio while he was still immobilized though he may have turned all the way back into a man and walked out himself.Robin, I agree the episode was creepy, but I thought it was good kind of creepy. Tara and Princess Donna I’m going to agree more with Tara here. I think that David/Prince Charming is a relatively bland character. I think the evil characters Rumpel and Regina are the most vivid in the show, followed by the kick-ass Snow. I do find the new, feistier David more interesting than the pre-curse-breaking David the new David is not as swashbuckling as the FTL Prince and not as cowardly as the old David, but something of a combination of the two. I also like the way he’s become a reluctant leader which reminds me of some aspects of LOST (I may write more about that later). But even the new David is not as fascinating to me as Rumpel, Regina, and Snow and that may have something to do with the acting, I think Josh Dallas is doing a good job, but Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, and Ginnifer Goodwin take it to a whole other level.
