1:20 just imagine if this is how Palpatine's spirit is going to appear in episode 9. Only the echo of his voice soaring throughout the Darth star
I am in awe of how easily he slipped back into character for that monologue. He had to have read that monologue before hand, surely.
Grandpa Palpatine reading you a bedtime story.
*ROLL IT AGAIN!!*
And this here...Made me believe that Star Wars was a legit Shakesphere play.
Ian McDiarmid is one of the best parts of Star Wars. His Darth Sidious voice gives me goosebumps!
no one can replace Ian as Darth Sidious
Holy shit that was soooo amazing!!!!
HOLY SHIT what a punching power!!!
Literally gave me chills
Merchant of Venice 🤣
He sounds so supreme, I wish I could have such a voice.
Star Wars Episode 9. He's baaaaaaaaack.
Alas, poor Plageus. How I knew thy...
Palpatine read The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet
Whose watching this after episode 9 trailer?
1:19 is all you need
Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh this is too awesome!!!!!!!!
No one did it better.
He should read Donald Trump tweets that would be bad ass and make me look forward to his tweets!!
That was absolutely fantastic! Especially the way he says "Thy feeble skills"! I'm shaking!!
this here, is about 1000% better than anything the last 2 piles of steaming cow waste gave us. this is what happens when you take away the director and the edit room and allow an actor to do what they do best, just how many scenes did mark hamil make only to never be used. how many times did he say, no no no this is not luke, while here we have Ian being allowed to be who his charactor is and it shows. it really shows what GL gave us. this short reading, is stunning, shocking, mind bending, mesmerizing and a taste of what happens when you hand a skilled actor a piece of well written material. thank you so much Ian McDiarmid.
Galactic Rangers glad he’s coming back for IX.
Who watching after seeing Ian at the Star Wars Celebration and The Trailer for The Rise Of Skywalker?
I shall rise now and forever dark lord of the sith
He needs to dress up as a Sith lord 💪💪💪
Clone Wars Obi Wan talking with Palpatine??
i didnt understand sh`t, but it was still beautiful
Oh whoever added the music and the reverb deserves a medal already. Someone have Ian read those books and put them on audible please.
I could listen to him talking about anything with this voice all day
I wish this was the real dialogue .
PALPATINE WANTED TO BE KILLED!
I love this dude
I love it! 😍
Awesome. The reverb was really unnecessary and took away from the performance.
❌🧢 the 🐐
Chills when he said the power of the dark side
It's amazing how he starts to get so deeply in the character, even his facial expressions slowly begin to appear evil. What a master!
*ROLL IT AGAIN*
Your overconfidence is your weakness
Your faith in your friends is yours.
WHO IS HERE, AFTER THAT BEAUTIFUL LAUGH?!
@Smith Wesson For some reason this video is the first thing I thought of after that sweet sweet trailer
ROLL IT AGAIN
fucking love this clip...so glad he's back in Episode IX
The Senate 2019: "ROLL IT, AGAIN..."
Petition for palpatine to use old English in episode 9
Who's here after the new trailer?
I am so so happy to have him back for Episode IX!
Emperor Palpatine does a good impression of Ian McDiarmid
I have a full body goosebumps!!! It is very uncomfortable, yet amazing!!
Die Stimme von dem Typen ist einfach so geil :D
He sounds like the senate
He should have voiced Palpatine for the Dark Empire audio dramas as well as the NPR Dramatizations for The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi
The way he says "the power of the dark side" is just incredible. The man still has it.
Now james arnold Taylor turn to read something with kenobi's voice
For the Emperor!
It's great that he's just as much a fan as those in the audience
there are only a few perfect Casting choise in Cinemahistory. For example RTJ as Ironman, Jeff Goldblum as Ian Malcom, Johnny Depp as CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow. And Ian Mcdiarmid as Palpatine is one of them.
I feel so much power when he says power.. amazing
Palps is using the force to make his voice echo across the galaxy.
I am the senate!
indeed you are
He is a Shakespearean actor
Look how beautiful I am!
Ian was the best, actually only good part of the prequels.
1:38 feel the power
1:20 Crack!! Genio!! Ace!!
Hes one of the few saving graces of the prequels.
A simple reverb and no echo would be just fine, they ruined it.
If so powerful you are, why read?
Ian and Ewan are my personal justifications for the prequels. The rise of Palpatine, and the exploration of Obi Wan's prei-empire life were both well worth sitting through the negative aspects of the prequels.
The Senate himself!!!
Awesome. Love him.
He the best part of Episode's1-6.
Sideous! Love that voice
“Oh come on, hate me, hate me” I see what you did there
Do the room got dark in the world started to close around like how Gandalf when he got angry at Bilbo in the fellowship I got fucking shows
Was genuinely surprised that he didn’t start shooting lightning bolts out of his fingers at the end. Such an underrated gem of an actor!
I'm surprised when he said "Is nothing compared to all the power of the dark side" that the lights in the room didn't flash and burst
Awesome but too much echo
That was fantastic!!!!!!!
Ian was the best actor in the 6.
Greatest thing ever!
HHAHAHA WHAT A NEWB
Brilliant.. Classic starwars was also heavily about the persona of voices. Ian Mcdiarmid and James earl Jones. Those rare moments that the perfect ingredients come together at best time to create something special and memorable. Great art..
Imagine Ian mcdiarmid, Andy Serkis and James earl jones reading lines together..........🤔🤔🤔😳😳😳
Episode 9 will have a scene with Rey getting angry tormented by who and what she is and where here place is in this story. Then deep within her soul she will hear.......Goooooooood......and the cringing voice of pure evil from the beyond pierces between worlds.Rey says, "Who's there?" "One who understands you, my young Rey."Now finish what I started, Granddaughter......and elimintate my "masters" failure....SKY...walker.(Trained by Sidious Force ghost)
Lol he’s so sweet. Oh my God, never mind.
What a badass
I always wondered how dark was the Dark side? Like somewhat dark, or really dark? If Darth Vader ever attacked me, and of course i would die, i would say before he cut me down ''How dark is your Dark side'' and make fun of him..
As a stormtrooper that's how I'd rationalize my death of rebels were overwhelming my imperial base on a world or starship. I'd say something like "Wait ! Let me crack a joke before you shoot me. What did Darth Vader say to Mon Mothma ? *Awkward Moment* I want to see your dark side !Eh, that's funny right ? *Coughs* You can shoot me now !"
Absolutely fantastic! Genius!
1:19 you know the room went cold lol
LONG LIVE THE TRUE DARK LORD OF THE SITH!!!!!!!!!!
i am the senate
It’s the senate ! He has unlimited power!
