At the Star Wars: Rebels panel Disney and Lucasfilm provided the first look at The Inquisitor, the chief villain in the new Star Wars: Rebels animated series that is slated to debut on the Disney XD network in the fall of 2014. The tall, gaunt black clad Inquisitor has been charged by Darth Vader with the task of running down and exterminating the final remnants of the Jedi Knights.
Star Wars: Rebels showrunner Dave Filioni produced the two-and-one half minute video introducing the Star Wars: Rebels production team (most of whom worked with Filioni on Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as well as the new Star Wars: Rebels villain.

In related news Filioni posted on his Facebook page that the final episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be available for viewing in early 2014. He did not specify how many episodes there were (though he did state that the unseen eps do contain one of “Master Yoda’s most challenging missions”), nor whether they would be broadcast or just made available via iTunes or DVD (or all 3).
