Since the sport is confirmed to happen across the similar time as Obi-Wan Kenobi and some years earlier than the beginning of the Rebels animated collection, you would possibly assume this sinister-looking Pau’an is the Grand Inquisitor choosing up the chase after Cal defeated the Second Sister, however you’d be fallacious.
StarWars.com revealed that that is truly an Imperial senator who “makes a dangerous deal” within the recreation. Whatever that deal is likely to be, it appears to must do with the Jedi’s weapon. But how did Cal lose his saber within the first place?
The trailer additionally introduces followers to a brand new hooded darkish sider who briefly showcases their abilities with a lightsaber, disarming Cal throughout a duel. We know nearly nothing about this new baddie, however their proficiency at nighttime aspect of the Force means that they’re a brand new Inquisitor we’ve not met earlier than in Star Wars canon. Since Inquisitors one via 10 are all accounted for, is that this the Eleventh Inquisitor? Or a alternative for the Second Sister? Will we see them first launched on Obi-Wan Kenobi sooner or later?
There are a lot of questions, however followers are already forming some theories. One idea means that that is the brand new canon model of Starkiller, the protagonist of the outdated Force Unleashed video games. A fan-favorite darkish aspect character performed by actor Sam Witwer within the non-canon Legends continuity, the character might get rebooted for the brand new canon like different villains of his ilk have in the previous couple of years by Disney. (See Thrawn for an instance.)
But this appears to be a fan idea based mostly on zero proof, willed as an alternative by a want to see the character again in Star Wars. Either method, we’ll doubtless study far more about this antagonist within the months to return.
Who Is within the Bacta Tank?
Then there’s the particular person floating within the bacta tank on the very finish of the trailer. Cal and BD slowly strategy the tank, which is surrounded by overgrowing fauna, suggesting the character inside has been sleeping in there for a very long time. Is this bacta tank meant to maintain this character locked inside? Scars on their shoulders might suggest that that is one other darkish sider. But is that this a straight-up villain or somebody Cal must free with a view to full his new mission?
