Rumour: Ian McDiarmid to voice Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars Rebels

14 May 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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, »
