Angry Birds: Star Wars 2 features the voice of Emperor Palpatine

Give in to your anger.

This just in: Angry Birds Star Wars 2 has an actual actor from the original Star Wars trilogy lending their vocal talent to the game - and amazingly it's not Mark Hamill.

Instead, it's Emperor Palpatine himself, Ian McDiarmid, reprising his main baddy role, only this time as a pig. But if Star Wars has taught me anything, it's to not underestimate little green dudes. Especially if they have Jedi powers.

Elsewhere in Angry Birds: Star Wars 2 news, the game's multiplayer has finally been shown off in a new trailer below. The upcoming game will feature two-to-four player competitive modes as well as two-player co-op.

Angry Birds: Star Wars 2 is set to launch on PS3, Vita, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U, and 3DS on 29th October in the US and 1st November everywhere else.
