Rupert Friend To Play Star Wars Rebels Villain In Kenobi


It’s being reported that Rupert Friend will be playing a very popular Star Wars Rebels villain in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

It’s being suggested by Bespin Bulletin that Rupert Friend will be playing The Grand Inquisitor in the upcoming Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

The series is going to be streaming on Disney Plus from May 25th.

The report also goes on to claim that Moses Ingram and Sung Kang will be playing two other Inquisitors.

It had been previously reported by Cinelinx that Kang was actually going to be playing the Fifth Brother in the upcoming Kenobi series.

Bespin Bulletin’s report does say that Kang’s character will be wearing a headpiece in the show a lot like one of the Fifth Brother’s.

Bespin Bulletin suggest in their report that Ingram’s character in the Kenobi series will be an entirely new Inquisitor.

Therefore, this will be a completely new character which Star Wars fans have never seen before.

It’ll be really interesting to see if this all turns out to be the case.

What’s certain is that the Inquisitors will make an appearance and Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan will have to go up against them.

The series is going to star Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Simone Kessell, Benny Safdie, Maya Erskine and Rory Ross.
