The Voice Of Star Wars' Emperor Takes On His Hammiest Role Yet

Good. Use your aggressive feelings. Let the hate flow through you. If Ian McDiarmid reprising his role as Emperor Palpatine in pig form doesn't sway you to Angry Bird Star Wars II's Pork Side — if you will not be turned — you will be destroyed!

The man who portrayed Star Wars' greatest villain across all six films is now the only professional actor to voice a pig in Rovio's Angry Birds series. It's amazing how that sinister rumble loses none of its majesty and menace when coming from the snout of a green bacon bag.

It's a joy to watch the man work.

Angry Birds Star Wars II arrives on September 19 on iOS and Android.


    he was only in four of the movies, in empire it was an old lady with chimp lips for eyes or something.

      It was. But they reshot that scene with him for the DVD special edition of Empire.

        Doesn't count, yuk. Still doesn't equal six films regardless.
