Angry Birds: Star Wars II Gets Emperor Power
Ian McDiarmid returns to give the Pig Emperor some heft.
With Angry Birds: Star Wars II less than a month away from release, Rovio is pulling out all the stops to make sure its sequel is top-quality. What better way to do that than to bring in the man who made the Emperor such a compelling character in the films?
Rovio asked actor Ian McDiarmid to voice the "Pig Emperor" in the latest Angry Birds: Star Wars II ad, which features him trying to give a daunting speech while dealing with malfunctions with his chair. On top of that, he puts up with a singing electronic fish.
Watch the ad, as well as a behind-the-scenes video featuring McDiarmid in voice-over action.
Angry Birds: Star Wars II releases on September 19th for iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8.
