In the fall, ‘Star Wars’ fans will finally get to see what happened between ‘Revenge of the Sith’ and ‘A New Hope’ thanks to the upcoming Disney XD animated series ‘Star Wars Rebels‘. So far, we’ve been introduced to our heroes Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, Zeb Orrellos, Hera Syndulla, and Chopper, as well as the main villain known as the Inquisitor. However, it looks like the crew of the Ghost will have much more to deal with than the Darth Vader-esque baddie from the Empire.
The official ‘Star Wars’ YouTube channel released a video this week introducing the world to Agent Kallus, the ruthless Imperial rebel hunter voiced by David Oyelowo of ‘Lincoln’, ‘Lee Daniels’ The Butler’, and ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’. While the Inquisitor is more likely to be found on a Star Destroyer, Kallus is in the field leading Stormtroopers and engaging in combat alongside his troops with the hopes that all his hard work will eventually aid him in climbing the ranks of the Empire. You can learn more about this unforgiving adversary in the video below, followed by the official synopsis of the show:
‘Star Wars Rebels’ continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.
