After 17 years, Ewan McGregor is again on our Star Wars screens in Obi-Wan Kenobi, but he’s not the only important legacy character in the show.
The Grand Inquisitor appears, played by Rupert Friend. Though, perhaps not after the second episode of the show, right? Wrong.
There is no way that the Grand Inquisitor is dead on Obi-Wan Kenobi, because cool, dark side alien villains need more than one lightsaber strike to kill them.
Director Deborah Chow and the rest of the storytellers have a lot of Star Wars canon to keep straight.
Along with Obi-Wan, the show includes Luke and Leia as children. Jimmy Smits is back as Bail Organa, and Simone Kessel plays Breha Organa.
And, at the very end of "Part II," we got our first glimpse of Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader.
Up against this bench of characters, the Grand Inquisitor doesn’t really rate. But he played an important role in one of the franchise's most beloved series.
On Star Wars Rebels, the Grand Inquisitor was the main antagonist for the titular rebels. Voiced by Jason Isaacs, viewers learned a lot about this character.
