Sources Say Moses Ingram Is Playing An Inquisitor In 'Obi-Wan Kenobi'

Let's Look At What Is Known

By Culture SlatePublished 3 years ago 3 min read

There has been a new video posted from behind the scenes on Obi-Wan Kenobi, one of Disney+’s live-action Star Wars series about Obi-Wan Kenobi. And some of it seems to suggest a major character possibly being in play. Starring Ewan McGregor as the titular character, this is still in the process of filming and is expected to be released in 2022. Deborah Chow, who has also directed two episodes of The Mandalorian, is directing this limited series.

Obi-Wan Kenobi already has several major casting announcements that have gone out, with probably the most popular (next to the excitement of Ewan McGregor’s return in one of his best roles) is Hayden Christensen, who is coming back to reprise his role as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. Joel Edgerton is coming back as Owen Lars and Bonnie Piesse is coming back as Beru Lars. There have also been several other people who are definitely a part of the Disney+ series, but we do not yet know whom they will be playing yet. A few of these are Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, and Rupert Friend, among several others. Another one is Moses Ingram, who, according to one source, could perhaps be playing the first live-action Inquisitor.

A new Star Wars rumor was teased on the Steele Wars show. Corey Van Dyke, of Star Wars scoop/discussion outlet Kessel Run Transmissions, was a guest on the Steele Wars show. And Corey decided to tease an idea that he heard from one source that Moses Ingram was playing the first live-action Inquisitor. He followed up this announcement by saying that he had only heard this information from one source and, therefore, didn’t want to back it yet. He is currently investigating other sources and trying to come up with the exact answer.

The interview can be seen here with Corey Van Dyke’s comment at 7:40.

This interview took place after Moses Ingram posted an Instagram story of herself wielding a blue lightsaber during training for Obi-Wan Kenobi. Even though the lightsaber is blue, which of course means the light side, Corey Van Dyke and others said that this could be a ploy to throw fans off the scent. Videos are not all that they seem. Theories started flying. And by far, the most popular one is the idea that Moses Ingram is in training to be the first live-action Inquisitor.

The Inquisitors are some of the most loved villains in the Star Wars universe. They made their canonical debut in the Star Wars Rebels animated series. They are a collection of Force-sensitive dark side agents who work for Emperor Palpatine. Their mission is to hunt down and most likely kill any Jedi in the galaxy whom they can find, basically any that survived Order 66. Their leader is the Grand Inquisitor, a Pau’an warrior. During the first season of Star Wars Rebels, the Grand Inquisitor hunts down the Jedi Kanan Jarrus and his Padawan Ezra Bridger. Kanan eventually beats the Grand Inquisitor in a duel, and the Grand Inquisitor allows himself to die rather than face Darth Vader with a failed mission. Other Inquisitors even face Ahsoka Tano.

Inquisitors have taken on a large role in the Star Wars universe since their introduction in Star Wars Rebels. They appear in Charles Soule's Darth Vader comic series where Palpatine positions them as subordinates and potential rivals for Darth Vader. The different Inquisitor members, also known as “Brother” or “Sister” with numbers attached, are in various “Reign of the Empire” era stories. They are including the novel Ahsoka and the popular video game Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. In some of these stories, we see that the Inquisitors are former Jedi bent toward the dark side by Palpatine.

Since Obi-Wan Kenobi is set during the “Reign of the Empire” era in the Star Wars story arc, it does make sense that at some point we would see an Inquisitor make an appearance. Especially if we see any indication of Obi-Wan trying to dodge the Empire. If the Empire has any inkling that he is still alive, you can bet that they would have sent an Inquisitor. And if not with Obi-Wan, perhaps we shall see them with Darth Vader since Palpatine is responsible for the creation of them both. It is a rumor, but a rumor that, according to Corey Van Dyke, is entirely probable.
