Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi has officially began filming which means the rumor mill has already started turning. This time it involves the live-action debut of Darth Vader’s Sith Inquisitors in the Disney+ series.
This report comes from Star Wars insider, Corey Van Dyke (Kessel Run Transmissions). He claims that Moses Ingram (The Queen’s Gambit) will be portraying an Inquisitor on the show.
“This isn’t something I’m running as a scoop because it’s only from one person so until I hear from other people, I don’t know. I was told that she is definitely an Inquisitor so we’ll see. I don’t know. I’m still running it with other sources.”
The Inquisitors Could Be Coming To Obi-Wan Kenobi
While it doesn’t seem like this is a for a sure thing as of now, Inquisitors potentially coming to Obi-Wan Kenobi is still intriguing. Considering Hayden Christensen will be reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, it’s highly possible that he would send Inquisitors to kill his former master in the series.
For those who don’t know, Inquisitors are essentially former Jedi who joined the Empire and willing turned to the dark side of the force. They are then sent by the empire to kill the remaining runaway Jedi.
The Inquisitors were first introduced in Star Wars Rebels and have since been featured in other projects such as Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and the comics.
Only time will tell if this supposed Inquisitor character will be a character we have already seen or a new character created specifically for Obi-Wan Kenobi.
