For some reason these two must represent a sentient Quokka type creature of the Star Wars universe. A happy photo, every time.

   A long time ago, at a Drive-In that still exists today, a seven year old me was taken by his Father to see Star Wars. Alright, it was 40 years ago.

   How awesome would it be to have Ian McDiarmid voice the Emperor once again? They were able to garner the vocal talents of James Earl Jones to reprise his role as Darth Vader, so this is not an impossible feat for Lucasfilm and Disney to pull off.
