It's pretty clear by now that any die-hard Star Wars fans are going to want to watch Disney XD's new [Star Wars Rebels](series:965946) animated series launching October 13th. It takes place between Episodes III and IV, but the promo material from the series has already hinted it will tie in directly to 2015's [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158).

Considering Disney loves to world-build and interlink all the projects for individual properties into one huge universe, anyone blowing this off as a silly kids' cartoon is bound to miss some major Easter eggs for the upcoming movie if they don't tune in. The latest clip is maybe the coolest yet, and shows The Inquisitor, rumored main baddie of Episode VII, looking absolutely lethal with a lightsaber. Check it out:

I don't know about you, but if I were those two Jedi, I would want NO part of that double-bladed lightsaber. I'd take one look at that spinning death wheel and "NOPE" my way right on outta there, Force or not.

If the Imperial Inquisitor is indeed the villain we're getting in Episode VII (and at this point, all the hints are leaning that way), prepare yourselves for some epic lightsaber action. Darth Maul was pretty legendary with his sick Sith skills in The Phantom Menace, and if this clip is anything to go by, The Inquisitor just might be even more badass with a blade.

Oh, Jedi. Are you ever in a world of trouble...


Do you plan on watching Star Wars Rebels?
