Save for maybe David Prowse, it seems that everyone even tangential to the Original Trilogy has made their reappearance in Disney’s new lineage of creations. Even Ewan McGregor had a line in TFA. I can understand holding off on Hayden Christensen, considering his shying away from the industry as a whole, but why not McDiarmid, someone who is a giant in the franchise’s legacy? James Earl Jones himself returned for Rebels, and yet Sam Witwer stayed on as Palpatine. Of all the chances given to legacy contributiors to reprise their roles, why not give one to him?
