Just earlier today, we got the tease that the Grand Inquisitor would make his live-action debut in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series. Surprising many, the Annual Shareholder Meeting randomly dropped the first trailer for the Disney+ Star Wars series. Not only that, but it even included our first look at the live-action adaptation of the Grand Inquisitor, who looks ready to face Obi-Wan Kenobi at some point in the series.
He certainly looks quite a bit different from the animated project, but it makes sense given that it’s difficult to translate some designs from one medium into the other. Cad Bane, Bo Katan, and Ahsoka worked quite well with some adaptations. The closest comparison would be Bane, whose face has also been widened in live-action yet he is mostly CG and prosthetics.
The Grand Inquisitor still has an intimidating aura that’ll likely be at full force. He also seems to be visiting Tatooine, which might hint at him chasing down the former Jedi Master after he comes out of hiding Whatever drags him to town, it’s going to be quite interesting to see how they tackle the character in live-action.
