Ian McDiarmid Rumored to be Appearing in Star Wars Rebels

Published

Ian McDiarmid

Star Wars Rebels has managed to bring back some of the saga’s most beloved actors to reprise their roles in animation form. Forrest Whitaker has returned to voice Saw Gerrera, Billy Dee Williams reprised his role as Lando Calrissian and, of course James Earl Jones returned to voice the Dark Lord of the Sith himself, Darth Vader. Well, if recent rumors are to be believed then another beloved actor is set to return to a galaxy far far away.

Star Wars News Net has reported that Ian McDiarmid is set to reprise his role as Emperor Palpatine in Season 4 of Rebels. Palpatine has been featured in Rebels before, but he was voiced by Darth Maul voice actor Sam Witwer.

Ian McDiarmid has supposedly been doing some voice work at the same place and time that another Star Wars veteran, Warwick Davis, has been recording. Davis is set to play Rukh in the upcoming season 4, so with that in mind it seems extremely plausible that Ian McDiarmid could be voicing the Emperor.

It would make sense for Palpatine to return in the final season of Star Wars Rebels due to it obviously being set during the height of Imperial rule. Perhaps he personally takes an interest in attempting to put a stop to the Ghost crew himself as they have become a rather large thorn in the side of the Empire.

If these rumors are true then Season 4 of Rebels could be the best yet.

About Star Wars Rebels:

A brave and clever ragtag starship crew stands up against the evil Empire as it tightens its grip on the galaxy and hunts down the last of the Jedi Knights.

Some people like Star Wars and some people really like Star Wars. There are occasions though when the Galaxy Far, Far Away consumes your very existence, and this is very much me. I have loved Star Wars for over 20 years, it was and always will be my biggest passion.

Kevin Kiner Finishes Score for Star Wars Rebels

Published

on

In a bit of sad news, it seems as if the reality of Star Wars Rebels wrapping up is starting to sink in. Composer Kevin Kiner has finished scoring the last half of Star Wars Rebels season 4. Executive Producer Dave Filoni tweeted an image of the orchestra playing their final notes for the score, with a nice loth-cat shadow appearing in the front.

Only a few episodes are left in season 4, that should wrap up the Star Wars Rebels storyline. Hopefully some of our favorite Rebels survive the upcoming episodes. We do know that Hera and Chopper make it through because of their appearance/mention in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Seth Green to Voice New Character in Star Wars Rebels

Published

on

No stranger to the Star Wars universe, Seth Green will be voicing a Trandoshan character (Captain Seevo), in the next episode of Star Wars Rebels! The official synopsis of the episode is as follows – “Desperate to contact Rebel command, the Ghost crew pirates a mining vehicle with long range communications gear, but the Empire arrives to spoil their plans.” It seems our Rebels crew hasn’t made it off Lothal after the events of Monday’s episodes.

When you’re in trouble and need to contact Rebel command, you might have to resort to desperate measures. That’s what Kanan, Sabine, Ezra, and Zeb have to do in next Monday’s Star Wars Rebels. They pirate/borrow—if you want to use a friendlier term—a mining guild crawler with long range communications gear in order to get in touch with Hera, presumably so she can save their skins. Nerdist is happy to announce that Seth Green will be making his Star Wars Rebels debut as the Trandoshan in charge of that crawler, Captain Seevo.

This is not Green’s first foray into the galaxy far far away. He has previously voiced Pantoran Ion Papanoida and Todo 360 in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, as well as a various characters in the canceled before released television series Star Wars Detours.

Check out a couple of images from the episode below…
