With Obi-Wan Kenobi coming, just who are the Inquisitors

When the teaser trailer hit for Disney +’s Obi-Wan Kenobi fans were treated to the first ever live-action shots of Inquisitors. Some fans were caught off guard by the quick looks but overall they were well received. So who is this mysterious group of Force sensitive agents? Let’s take a closer look. My thought is they will play a large role in the hotly anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi show.

Nearly every Star Wars fan remembers when Palpatine (AKA Darth Sidious) gave the famous call to “execute Order 66.” The Clone Troopers turned and killed Jedi. The ones the escaped were hunted down primarily by Inquisitors.

“Red Blades,” as some have come to know Inquisitors by were trained by Darth Vader. The kicker is Vader could not stand the Inquisitors because they were former Jedi. Yet, Palpatine put him in charge of them. Vader only viewed the group as a means to and end.

Vader had serious doubts the Inquisitors could take on the likes of a Jedi such as Obi-Wan Kenobi. During the training phase Vader was over the top cruel as he wanted to drive out any remaining thoughts of the Jedi life the Inquisitors lived before turning to the dark side.

Based on the trailer, the Inquisitors are looking for hidden Jedi who survived the purge. There is little doubt they will at some point (be it the whole group, a select few or even one) find Obi-Wan.

The question is, is Vader pulling there strings? After all he is in charge of them if so how does that relationship work in a live-action setting? A leader who can not stand the people he is leading should be very interesting as the show moves along.

So how about it, are you excited to see live-action Inquisitors in Obi-Wan Kenobi? How do you see the show shaping up? Drop a comment and let me know.

Writing challenge day 5: Rogue One a Star Wars story

The first Star Wars stand-alone film was Rogue One. What seemed to be a sort of weak story idea turns out to have been a wrong thought. Rogue One is one of the best Star Wars films to date. What made Rogue One a fan favorite is that the film’s story is not a new idea but built off of one from Star Wars: A New Hope, the acting was solid and the newer character’s were a fun bunch.

In Rogue One we are introduced Galen Erso who is a former scientist. Erso lives a peaceful life as a farmer.  Because of his past work as a scientist the Empire chooses Erso to be it’s lead engineer on what would be the most powerful weapon the Empire had ever built, the Death Star.

Jyn Erso, daughter of Galen joined a group resistance fighters to steal the plans. The same Death Star  plans that would ultimately wind up in the hands of Princess Leia who would put them into R2-D2 in Star Wars: A New Hope.

Orson Krennic, or Director Krennic was in charge of the Empire’s military department of weapon research. Krennic was unable to keep the plans for the Death Star in secrecy. Grand Moff Tarkin, insisted the project go through and decided to overtake the project from Krennic causing some discord between the two men.

The group of resistance fighters who would secure the plans to the battle station would meet a grizzly end. All did not survive. In that moment, Jy Erso, Cassian Andor, Chirrut Imwe, Bodhi Rook and others became the true hero’s of the Skywalker era portion of Star Wars.

They laid down their lives for a greater cause. There was one famous Star Wars character that made a appearance and it was stunning, Darth Vader. Vader would have a scene with Krennic and then had a much more violent moment and one that showed the Sith Lord in all of his glory.

Rogue One is a very satisfying film and set the tone for future Star Wars stand-alone movie projects.

Tomorrow, we journey to the Original Trilogy with a look at the film that kicked everything off, Star Wars. Later subtitled A New Hope. Hope to see you then.

A rumor has sent a rift through Star Wars fans

*Warning: This is a potential spoiler. Please turn away or take with a grain of salt.*

Embed from Getty Images A Darth Vader rumor has hit “The Rise of Skywalker” and has fans freaking out. Not in a good way. While this rumor may or may not be true, it does exactly what a rumor is designed to do. Divides the fans.

According to the rumor, the Darth Vader suit has been spotted on the UK “Rise of Skywalker” set.  The rumor is centered around the suit and Kylo Ren, it seems that Kylo Ren will be wearing the iconic Darth Vade suit.

Fans are unhappy. They do not feel that Kylo Ren is worthy to wear the suit of the greatest villain in cinema history. Star Wars fans on Social Media have been very vocal about the fact they do not want Ren anywhere near the Vader suit.

If it is true then it would link 1977 “Star Wars A New Hope” with the final film in the Skywalker saga.  What seems certain is that Darth Vader is indeed going to be in the film one way or another. Could be a flashback sequence or something similar.

The same rumor also has appearances of Qui-Gon Jinn and the Hutts in the JJ Abrams directed Episode IX. While the last two seem a long shot at best, the Darth Vader seems a bit more realistic. At least in theory.

Anakin Skywalker/ Darth Vader is the grandfather of Kylo Ren, there is not two-ways about it. So that alone makes the Darth Vader suit plausible. What seems out of place is that Kylo Ren would actually put the suit on.

Kylo Ren holds his grandfather on some pedestal. While I believe Emperor Palpatine is connecting with Ren  through Vader’s mask, I do not believe Ren would put on the suit unless he was directed to do so. I believe Ren has too much respect for his grandfather to put the suit on.

I for one hope this is a false rumor. It could end up being just that. Star Wars fans hope that is the case.
