Now that we've all seen "The Siege Of Lothal" a dozen or more times, it's time to start looking ahead season two of Star Wars Rebels. At the end of that episode the Emperor himself ordered Darth Vader to dispatch another Imperial Inquisitor to deal with the Rebels, and as we saw in the season two trailer, we'll be getting at least two never before seen Inquisitors in the upcoming season. The identities of these characters have been shrouded in darkness(and helmets), but some new photos that have surfaced may give us a better idea of who are heroes are up against. The Star Wars Rebels Magazine, which was released in the U.K. today, revealed some new photos of various characters, including both Inquisitors. Of course, potentially major SPOILERS follow, so continue reading at your own risk.
The first comes from our friend Evan G. on Twitter who pointed us to this photo shared by The Wolfpack Podcast of the male Inquisitor to us:
Also, courtesy of Rebel Transmission, we get our first look at the unmasked female Inquisitor:
And here's a closer look at their faces:
Fans of Star Wars: The Clone Wars will no doubt draw a connection from the Inquisitor on the right to Barriss Offee. The last time we saw Barriss was in season five of The Clone Wars where she was revealed to have framed Ahsoka Tano for the bombing of the Jedi Temple. She was subsequently arrested, and her story has been left open ended thus far. Now that Ahsoka herself has made the jump from Clone Wars to Rebels, this has led many fans to speculate that Barriss has now done the same. And there's no denying they do look strikingly similar. Just compare the photo above with this one of Barriss in The Clone Wars:
Of course, this is all speculation at the moment. We do indeed look forward to seeing this Inquisitor's identity revealed officially when season two of Star Wars Rebels begins airing on Disney XD this Fall!
