NYCC: Star Wars Rebels Reveals Villain: The Inquisitor & New Video

Body

At the New York Comic-Con, Disney revealed the villain for Star Wars Rebels with The Inquisitor.

In addition, a new promo video has been released with "Star Wars: The Empire Returns."

At StarWars.com it's revealed The Inquisitor is "tasked by Darth Vader to hunt down the remaining Jedi Knights."

An update on the plot was also given:

 The series takes place about 14 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, a time in which the Emperor's rule is secure and the Empire is seeking to expand its power to Outer Rim territories. That leads Imperial forces to Lothal, a poor planet that initially welcomes the Empire on the promise of security and prosperity. It soon becomes obvious, however, that the Empire does not have Lothal's best interests at heart, as the Imperials exploit its people and begin recruiting young citizens to join TIE fighter and Stormtrooper academies, or to work in the Sienar Fleet Systems factory -- which builds TIE fighters -- in the planet's capital. 

Star Wars Rebels debuts in 2014 on Disney XD.
