As we now know, he was absent from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and while we’ve still got a few months to go before we get to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it would seem highly unlikely that the Sith Lord pops up anyway in Episodes VIII and IX either (although a ‘Forceback’ cameo isn’t out of the question).
Nevertheless, given that Disney and Lucasfilm seem intent on mining familiar characters and eras with their Anthology movies, it’s surely only a matter of time before Darth Sidious does make his return to the big screen. And when he does, McDiarmid is hoping that he »

Actor Ian McDiarmid has weighed in on recent rumors, and revealed whether or not Palpatine could have possibly survived his presumed death. »

Ok, so a lot of you like to discredit Internet scamp Mike Zeroh and his many Star Wars: The Last Jedi rumors, theories and ideas. But when they are backed up by merchandise, perhaps there is some truth to what is being sold in his weekly video updates on this impending sequel. Today we have a very interesting piece of intel that we haven't heard before. And a toy to prove it's true. It deals with the resurrection of a Sith legend. So stop reading now if you wish to avoid Spoilers.
If this is true, we will definitely be seeing Ian McDiarmid reprise his iconic role as Emperor Palpatine. At this point, you may want to pull a good old fashion Luke Skywalker, 'No, that's impossible!' After all, Palpatine died after being thrown down a Death Star shaft by Darth Vader at the end of Return of the Jedi »

The post A Guide to Ian McDiarmid Movies and TV Shows appeared first on ComingSoon.net. »
When Palpatine reached the absolute peak of his power during Empire Strikes Back, Ian McDiarmid’s former Chancellor ruled over the Empire from a Super Star Destroyer known as the Executor – a not so subtle nod to the Death Star, we imagine. But according to a new report compiled by Star Wars News Net (via Inverse), in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the First Order’s HQ will actually be located on a Mega Star Destroyer.
How do we know about this mammoth dreadnought? It’s included in the soon-to-be-released merchandise line for Force Friday (September 1st) and is listed as so: “Bb-8 Mega Star Destroyer (with Supreme Leader Snoke and Elite Praetorian Guard).” It’s valued at a whopping $199.99 and while no further details or images were included in the report, it’s worth slapping on our tin foil hats and speculating about what this might mean for the »

They don’t make ’em like this any more, and the original TV spots for James Gray’s accurate retelling of history almost didn’t know how to sell it. Charlie Hunnam spends his life trying to solve a riddle of the Peruvian rainforest, in between fighting in WW1 and dealing with class prejudice. Yup, one could say the picture was filmed in a ‘classic’ style . . . can a show like that find an audience these days?

The critics love The Lost City Of Z:
“One Of 2017’S Best Movies.“ -Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair
“A Ravishment For The Senses.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
Charlie Hunnam (“Sons of Anarchy”), Robert Pattinson (Twilightfranchise), Sienna Miller (Factory Girl), and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) star in Amazon Studio’s The Lost City Of Z, the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett. Certified “Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, the film centers on Fawcett (Hunnam), who disappeared in the Amazon while searching for a mysterious city. An epically scaled tale of courage and passion, told in Writer/Director James Gray’s (We Own the Night) classic filmmaking style, The Lost City Of Z is a stirring tribute to the exploratory spirit and a conflicted adventurer driven to the verge of obsession.

Ricky Church reviews Star Wars: Darth Vader #1…
The most fearsome villain of all time returns with an all-new series! When Anakin Skywalker fell, both to the pull of the dark side and to the blade of Obi-Wan Kenobi, he rose back up, more machine than man. Having lost everything that was once dear to him, the former chosen one must take his first steps into a darker world…as Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith!
Of all the villains in pop culture, Darth Vader stands as one of the most memorable ever. He’s been an iconic figure for 40 years, though his backstory still has quite a few gaps. Beyond his turn to the Dark Side shown in Revenge of the Sith, we don’t know the full transition former Jedi Anakin Skywalker took to become the feared Sith Lord Darth Vader.

With Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (not the official title) underway, we can expect to see snappers getting some pictures from the set. We had our first official look at the cast a couple of months ago, but this set photo has given us our first glimpse at Alden Ehrenreich as the iconic smuggler. Check out the photo here…
…Looking ahead to this December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi now, and the new Japanese poster for the movie has given us one more reason to be excited. According to the poster’s tag line, the second part of the new trilogy will feature “the most shocking truth in Star Wars history”. Check it out here…

The Disney Xd animated series Star Wars Rebels has featured a number of big name cameos from veterans of the galaxy far, far away, including the likes of James Earl Jones (Darth Vader), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Frank Oz (Yoda), Forest Whitaker (Saw Gerrera) and Genevieve O’Reilly (Mon Mothma), and it seems we may soon be able to add another to that list.
According to a report from Star Wars News Net, the previously announced Warwick Davis will not be the only familiar name to guest star in the fourth and final season, as apparently Ian McDiarmid has also taken part in a voice recording session, which was directed by the same person as Davis’ (who the site believes to be Rebels creator Dave Filoni).
While an Ian McDiarmid return as Emperor Palpatine would certainly be welcome, the Sith Lord has already featured in Rebels, »

In this edition of Star Wars Bits: Han Solo spin-off star Phoebe Waller-Bridge talks about the movie. A fan petition wants Peter Mayhew to cameo in the Han Solo movie. Could Ian McDiarmid play Emperor Palpatine on Star Wars Rebels? Ewan McGregor is still not opposed to an Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off. Read excerpts from two Rogue One: […]

It’s not just the upcoming slate of movies that Star Wars fans are excited for at the moment. While there’s definitely a lot to look forward to there, we’ve also got some notable stuff coming down the pipeline on television.
Star Wars Rebels is about to air its fourth and final season, which promises to end the show in style. We already know that franchise stalwart Warwick Davis will be voicing Rukh, a character previously seen in the novels, while fan favourite Ahsoka Tano will be returning for more, too. The list goes on, but the upcoming season could be about to get even more exciting if this new casting rumour turns out to be true.

Excuse the twisting of a beloved comedian’s signature tune, but this new film’s theme could be “Hooray for Captain Fawcett, the Bolivian explorer!”. That’s Captain Percy Fawcett, to be specific. He’s the newest movie jungle adventurer, in the vein of Jungle Jim and Indiana Jones, except he was a real person. And he was the subject of a recent best-selling book. Now his exploits from nearly one hundred years ago have finally made it to the big screen. So is his quest to find The Lost City Of Z worthy of a far less treacherous trek to the local multiplex?
In 1906 Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) was a respected member of the British Royal Artillery, especially after shooting a stag during a big hunting competition. He’s got a beautiful supportive wife Nina (Sienna Miller) and an adorable tot named Jack. Unfortunately his military career has stalled, »

5. Star Wars Rebels Season 4 Trailer
We’re kicking off our list with the trailer for the fourth and final season of Star Wars Rebels. Over the last three years, we’ve been on quite a journey with the crewmembers of the Ghost. We’ve seen the likes of Ezra and Sabine grow before our very eyes as we witnessed Hera rise to a higher status within the rebellion and Kanan learn new ways of the force, never thought possible. Now, with this upcoming season, we will finally see their journey come to an end. »

Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni and Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo took to the stage at Star Wars Celebration yesterday for the Animated Origins and Unexpected Fates panel, during which they dropped a couple of pieces of news that will be of interest to fans of Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex.
As he did during last year’s Celebration, Filoni confirmed that Ahsoka is set to make her return to Star Wars Rebels, revealing that while he initially planned for her showdown with Darth Vader in the season two finale to be her last appearance, fan reaction towards the character ultimately changed her mind. However, the production time required for Rebels meant that by that point, it was impossible to include her in the third season.
Meanwhile, Filoni »

The 40th Anniversary panel was rather epic at the launch of Star Wars Celebration in Orlando yesterday. And now, we've got some of the highlights from that panel. Featuring George Lucas, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Kathleen Kennedy and lots more. While Lucas looked a bit bemused throughout the whole thing, seeing Ian McDiarmid and Hayden Christensen together again was rather special. Not to mention Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill, which was got the hairs to stand up on the back of my neck. Sadly, we were missing a Princess. »

Hayden Christensen was met with a rousing standing ovation during a long-overdue and rare Star Wars-related appearance. Thursday morning, Christensen took the Star Wars Celebration stage for the first time in 15 years for a special tribute, honoring the 40th anniversary of the Star Wars saga along with Emperor Palpatine actor Ian McDiarmid.
