BREAKING: Jason Isaacs to Voice the Inquisitor

By: Lillian Skye

The voice behind the Pau'an villain from the upcoming series Star Wars Rebels has finally been revealed. Now, the galaxy far, far away has a visitor from the Wizard world: Jason Isaacs. Isaacs, who played Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, will play the role of the Inquisitor--a Jedi hunter and the primary villain of the show.

"I’ve played a few unpleasant characters,” says Isaac, who is no stranger to voicing villainous characters. He was he voice behind the ruthless Admiral Zhao in Avatar: The Last Airbender, the deceptive Ra's Al Ghul in the Batman animated film Under the Red Hood, and the hero-turned-villain Sinestro in in an animated Green Lantern film. "Possibly, you could call them villains — depends on your point view.”

The Inquisitor is familiar with Jedi ways and training tactics--information that would be helpful when tasked to track down and kill the surviving Jedi and force-users. "He evokes classic villains that we've seen from Darth Maul through Darth Vader, but he isn't just a carbon copy of them."

"When the Inquisitor shows up, it means something is significant," says Lucasfilm Story Group's Pablo Hildago "and it's a definite challenge to our heroes."
