Star Wars Rebels Villain Revealed

It's time to meet The Inquistor, the new bad guy in Star Wars Rebels

Lucasfilm showed up at this weekend's New York Comic-Con and revealed the villain who'll be the thorn in the heroes' side in new animated series Star Wars Rebels . According to executive producer Dave Filoni (formerly of The Clone Wars ) he's been "tasked by Darth Vader to hunt down the remaining Jedi Knights".

It's also been revealed that the show is set about 14 years after Revenge Of The Sith , in a time when the Emperor's rule is very much secured, and the Empire is working to expand into the Outer Rim territories.

Star Wars Rebels will air on Disney XD in autumn 2014.
