The greatest movie villain of all time
The most iconic of all the Star Wars villains to be seen in the “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series is the Sith Lord of the Galactic saga. Yes, Darth Vader, the greatest movie villain of all time, is back in the Hayden Christensen series. While you have an appearance in the animated series “Rebels”, now comes the live action of Kenobi to develop all your power.
It is assumed that the role of Darth Vader in the series, will be decisive and would cover a lot of prominence, so it is vital to know some facts about the character of the dark side in order to better understand the plot.
Darth Vader is known to be a very cruel villain, but he proved in the stories that he had absolutely nothing to do with the truth, as he had a ruthless and very violent nature. That level of care, rarely seen in the movies, could trigger a series of events that help develop the “Obi-Wan Kenobi” section.
It is common in the Sith, that one of the wards wants to kill his master, so Palpatine approved when Darth Vader was wounded in his battle with Obi-Wan Kenobi to help him, to get into a robotic body. Precisely what keeps Darth Vader alive is sensitive to the rays of The Emperor’s Force, so Palpatine could easily defeat and prevent the student from signing the master.
But in which episode will Darth Vader appear in the Disney Plus Obi-Wan Kenobi series? according to various sources, the second chapter (which will also be seen on May 27) will feature a post-credits scene showing the healing of Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader in a tank. It is something that is slightly seen in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, as well as in many comics and novels, but will have an epic caress in the TV series.
The arrival of “The Mandalorian” at Disney Plus, began to unite the pieces of the Star Wars universe that had remained over the years. So I was able to see Ahsoka in real action, the stories of Mandalore and the Darksaber, for example. Now with the new series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” there is a more interesting entry: The Inquisitors, a group of dark characters who appear in black clothes and red double-edged lightsabers.
These beings have not been seen in movies and live action series. Its origins come after the fall of the Jedi Order with Order 66, when the Galactic Empire created a program of special agents sensitive to the Force, the Inquisition. The members of this program, named Brothers, were all former Jedi knights who moved to the Dark Side to serve Emperor Palpatine.
As Obi-Wan managed to save himself from Order 66 and send a message to the entire galaxy for the Jedi to hide, Palpatine entrusted the Inquisitors with the mission to wipe out the surviving Jedi in the Great Purge. the clone army. . In this way, under the direct orders of Darth Vader and the Grand Inquisitor (former guard of a Jedi temple), the Inquisitors began a bloody hunt to find their targets.
It comes from the comics of “Darth Vader: Dark Lord” and some others and in the animated series “Star Wars Rebels”, as well as being the main theme of the video game “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order”, a must for anyone . galactic fan.
Most important of all is The Great Inquisitor, who will make his first live-action appearance on “Obi-Wan Kenobi.” He was the main antagonist of the last seasons of “Star Wars: Rebels” and who runs the organization. He will be one of the strongest villains of “Obi Wan Kenobi” and many say that he is a brilliant villain, who has a sadistic, cold and calculating personality and also puts a very curious lightsaber.
But in total, there are ten best-known Inquisitors. Along with The Great Inquisitor are Second Sister (Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order video game); Third Sister (Obi-Wan Kenobi); Fourth Sister (“Obi-Wan Kenobi”); Fifth Brother (“Star Wars Rebels”, “Obi-Wan Kenobi”); Sixth Brother (comic only); Seventh Sister (“Star Wars: Rebels”); Eighth Brother (Star Wars: Rebels); Ninth Sister (Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order video game); and Tenth Brother (comics only).
The other villains of “Obi-Wan Kenobi” are the Fifth Sister and Reva (Third Sister). Here is her first appearance in the Star Wars saga, but in the Fifth Sister she was also seen in the animated series “Rebels”. According to rumors, the plot of the Third Sister will be very important in the series. It is said that he has as much time on screen as Kenobi himself and that his destiny is tied to the Second Sister.
Reva will tirelessly chase Obi-Wan for much of the series. The Third Sister, like so many other members of the Galactic Inquisition, is a Force-sensitive human woman who was once a Jedi in the past. Its operations have been kept secret by the imperial authorities.
Like the Third Brother, his activities and missions have remained hidden and censored among the imperial archives. At some point, and as you can see in the trailer, he will come in contact with moisture farmer Owen Lars in search of the hidden Jedi.
Another well-known character in the movies is Emperor Palpatine and there is a lot of expectation about his possible appearance in “Obi-Wan Kenobi”. Although the Dark Lord of the Sith has not been confirmed to appear on the show, it would not be crazy to think so.
Given Ian McDiarmid’s presence in other franchise products recently, it would make sense to bring the actor and character back. It should be noted that Darth Vader responds to only one person, and that person is Palpatine, so it would be very likely that they both had a scene together.
