Star Wars fans are getting closer and closer to the release of the highly-anticipated limited series Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+. On March 9, an exclusive from Entertainment Weekly gave an inside look at what fans can expect–most notably a new villain.
Meet Reva, one of Darth Vader’s force-sensitive inquisitors. Brought to life by actress Moses Ingram, Reva is described by director Deborah Chow and Joby Harold as “ruthlessly ambitious.” With Darth Vader and the Grand Inquisitor, she is on the hunt for any Jedi in hiding, and her mission takes her to Tatooine.
“They [Reva, the Grand Inquisitor, and Darth Vader] share a common dark-side goal,” Ingram told EW. “They’re on the same team.”
A lightsaber rematch between McGregor’s Kenobi and Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader is already confirmed. But, EW’s write-up appears to suggest that this Reva will be the most commonly-appearing antagonist in the series as she interacts with several characters, including Luke’s Uncle Owen (Joel Egerton).
