Entertainment Weekly reports that Disney has officially announced that Jason Isaacs will voice the villain of Star Wars Rebels, who is called The Inquisitor. He's part of the Pau'an race and will be given the missio nof tracking down and killing the rest of the Jedi after the Clone Wars.
Lucasfilm Story Group's Pablo Hidalgo said: "He's cold, he's analytical, he doesn't get angry. 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."
The series details the origins of the Rebel Alliance and is set between the prequels and the original trilogy. It will debut with an hour-long special on the Disney Channel before moving on as a series on Disney XD channels worldwide.
