Eeeeevil Plans: Harry Potter’s Jason Isaacs Cast in Star Wars Rebels
As if Lucius Malfoy wasn't creepy enough.
Disney announced today that Jason Isaacs will join Star Wars Rebels as a new villain. Isaacs is already known for playing creepy Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter franchise, as well as several other villainous characters, so he seemed like a fitting actor for this role. Pablo Hidalgo of Lucasfilm Story Group has this to say about The Inquisitor:
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.
From the way he’s described, The Inquisitor isn’t just going to be a re-hash of previous villains in the franchise. Sounds like this new villain is in good hands!
