Last week we talked about DC’s Deadman. This week, we’re bringing you an update on Disney’s upcoming Star Wars projects, and in particular a new project focused on the Inquisitors.
The Inquisitors are a group of force-sensitive individuals tasked with destroying the remnants of the Jedi Order. Under the leadership of Darth Vader, they hunt down and kill any remaining Jedi or force-sensitive individuals who don’t fall in line with the Empire. They were introduced in Star Wars Rebels before being added in other projects, including the video game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
Dave Filoni, who has shepherded the Star Wars franchise for years now is a huge proponent of the Inquisitors. He’s making a big push for them for future projects. They’ll be making an appearance in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series that’s coming but that’s not all; we can exclusively share that this will set up their own Disney+ live-action series.
More On The Inquisitors And Star Wars
This project is early in development, but will be a continuation from what we see in Obi-Wan Kenobi. Also interestingly there will be appearances by Inquisitors that we see in both the Obi-Wan series, Jedi: Fallen Order, as well as Star Wars: Rebels. This will act as a means to provide backstory to many of these characters. It will also introduce a new Sister who reluctantly falls in line with the Inquisitors. Although she sees the damage and destruction they cause and has second thoughts.
The show is also a way to bring in some lesser known Jedi from the canon into a live-action series. An example shown in the leaked outline document I’ve seen described the inclusion of Luminara Unduli. So they’re definitely diving into the canon on this one.
Finally, what would be the Inquisitor’s without Darth Vader himself? I can report that after a positive experience on the set of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, Hayden Christensen is being looked at to return as Darth Vader. Although it sounds like he will not have a huge role in the series.
Moving forward it’s clear that Disney and Lucasfilm have huge plans for the Inquisitors. We can expect to see cool and exciting things come in the near future.
