There's some new information on the upcoming Star Wars animated series. Set to debut in 2014 on Disney XD, Lucasfilm and Disney have unveiled the villain for Star Wars Rebels at New York Comic Con.
The Inquisitor is described as an "intimidating figure" and is hired by Darth Vader to hunt down the remaining Jedi. The image above was released showing the Inquisitor in front of the familiar-looking Stormtroopers rather than soldiers in the Clone Trooper armor.
Star Wars Rebels is set to take place in the twenty-year span between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope "in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape."
What about the remaining Clone Wars episodes?
Dave Filoni posted on his Facebook an update with good and bad news. They have wrapped production on the final Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes. The bad news is that it means the show is over. The good news is we'll be able to watch the final episodes in early 2014. Filoni couldn't say when but we will get to see them, including, "one of Master Yoda's most challenging missions."
2014 will be a great year for Star Wars fans.
