A new report suggests British actor Jason Isaac – best known for Harry Potter – could voice the Jedi-hunting villain The Inquisitor in the forthcoming animated TV series Star Wars Rebels. An insider speaking with TheForce.net confirmed that Isaacs has been nailed down as the choice for the Inquisitor, also suggesting that Obi-Wan Kenobi will be present for the premiere in some form.

The report also identifies the two-part premiere’s main villain as Agent Kallus, as voiced by David Oyelowo. Premiering on Disney XD, Star Wars Rebels features Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Tiya Sircar, Freddie Prinze Jr and Noah Taylor, as Ezra Bridger. The show is produced by Days of Future Past’s Simon Kinberg, who has also penned the first episode.

The show continues the legendary Star Wars saga though it’s a dark time in the galaxy with the Galactic Empire tightening its grip of power from world-to-world. Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet and are ruling with an iron fist, ruining the lives of its people.

Star Wars: Episode VII is set for release in December 2015.
