Those that haven’t experienced the animated Star Wars series might be a bit confused by the title. For those that haven’t had the pleasure, the Inquisitors from the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series have been around for a while now. They even appeared in the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order video game. This group of Jedi Hunters has a special lightsaber that is capable of whirling at high speeds to help them fly.
As it was a bit over-the-top, it made us wonder if the same will apply to the live-action arrival of the characters and it turns out Rupert Friend confirmed it. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he got a chance to sit down and share his excitement for fans to see the live-action debut of the Grand Inquisitor, where he confirmed that “he can fly with it” as well.
He can turn it into a whirling blade. He can fly with it. It’s pretty kick-ass.Rupert Friend
In the interview, he also teases that he once was a Jedi, but doesn’t go into any details. So, we might get to explore what the Grand Inquisitor was before he fell to the Dark Side of the Force and became the driving force that he was to capture former members of the Jedi Council, who are on the run since the Empire took over, but Friend only said “all will be revealed in a couple of weeks.” in response to if we see his backstory.
