In regards to Star Wars, most of our attention is focused on J.J. Abrams upcoming Episode VII and the other film additions to the canon. Movies like that one, and Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII, and Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank’s impending standalone films, are obviously the biggest deal, but it often feels like we forgot that the first post-Disney-buyout addition to the family that we’ll actually see will be the animated Star Wars Rebels. They’re quietly putting together what looks like a cool addition to the franchise, one that will have wide reaching implications. Now Lucasfilm has released this video introducing us to one of the villains the heroes will have to face off against, Agent Kallus, Imperial Enforcer.
While The Inquisitor obviously represents the evil, nasty side of things, the Dark Side of the Force, Kallus is a different style of enemy. Definitely a bad guy, he’s not straight up wicked and malevolent. A member of the Imperial Security Bureau, described here as a mixture of the FBI and the military police, he represents the more rank and file of the Empire. While he is passionate about his work, and definitely believes in the Empire, he is just doing his job.
