^ Oh yeah! I thought he seemed familiar!Maybe they're trying to tell us something.
Let's see.. Sam Witwer did the voice for The Son who looks like this new Inquisitor. Sam Witwer also did the voice for Maul in TCW, and the Inquisitor seems to have a double bladed Lightsaber like Maul.
So clearly they're trying to tell us the Inquisitor is Maul reincarnated.

Frankly, this continues to hover around moderate interest for me. The story is constrained by the setting.
The Empire, while not as all-powerful as Palpatine might tell himself, is ubiquitous and pretty much supremely dominant. The rebellion as we know it has yet to be formally established and A New Hope's opening crawl makes it pretty clear that, for all intents and purposes, major victories against the Empire prior to Yavin were exceptionally rare.
You can't openly and epically challenge the Empire without damaging or compromising its narrative purpose and undermining the OT, especially for 22-episodes and many seasons.
I'm all for small scale subtle works, but that's generally best left to novels, where such intimate stories are better depicted. Visual Star Wars needs to be epic on some level and I don't think the time period lends itself well to that necessity.
Especially when it'll be following the same group of characters from the same planet.
I don't think we will be seeing very many victories for the Rebellion aside, perhaps, from a skirmish here and there. I think this series will focus primarily on how the Rebel Alliance was formed from ground zero-- show them foraging the galaxy for any sort of tech(however archaic) they can get their hands on, gaining allies here and there, setting up a formal base of operations, etc.-- all they while evading the Empire as much as possible. The Rebellion will be extremely crude in this series, and really not a legit threat to the Empire at all.
Aside from that, we will likely see random Sith/Bounty Hunters/Mercs/etc. prowling the galaxy for remaining Jedi(along with the newly-formed Rebels) and slaughtering them-- we'll also see Vader pop-in every now and then to slay the more powerful foes, dues ex machina style.
...That's how I *hope* it goes down, at least.
"I want you to know failure, utter defeat,
and that it is I who delivers it crashing down upon you."
We already saw how bloody and pointless the Rebellion became, persecuting a naive vendetta against countless people only because they chose to be Imperials. Blah, close the chapter and move on Lucasarts, we've seen this before.
But to be fair the Imperial hierarchy should have known better as well, following imbeciles like Daala sealed their destiny.
Iboga chose not to fight, to allow himself to evolve. He had the wisdom to abandon the actions of war when he knew they would no longer serve him.
