    What do you think about the Emperor's return to Star Wars Episode 9?

    4:47 *- Round 1. We saw the first trailer for "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" last week and learned about the surprising return of the Emperor! Is putting the Emperor in Episode 9 a good idea or a bad idea?*
    23:33 *- Round 2. All 3 of you are no strangers to reviewing movies, SO: What terribly reviewed movie deserves a second chance?*
    42:20 *- Round 3. “The Curse of La Llarona” opens this weekend. What’s the best horror movie specifically about ghosts?*
    1:00:00 *- SPEED ROUND*

    One: Speak up and join the conversation- we encourage respectful debate.
    Two: Respect your community- racism, misogyny, homophobia and hate speech aren’t tolerated.
    Three: Don’t go looking for fights.
    Four: “Be nice.” - Dalton from Roadhouse

      They're not bringing back the Emperor. This is a marketing ploy that they've done for literally every other teaser for TFA and TLJ. There is no Emperor - its a trailer designed to create hype and controversy.

      Am I the only one who wasn't shocked and awed by the Emperor laugh? It is kinda within the pattern they've been following for the other movies.

      could have been cool if he was save by Janus Greejatus and the Emperor force power Janus Greejatus in to the that shaft so no one know that Emperor was save from death

    I’m of two minds:
    Yes, because I’d like to see something decent
    But on the really big point, NO; this shouldn’t be about the old arcs as this is suppose to be a new trilogy with new problems and heros. But i don’t event know what this series is about now...its just full of Disney’s attempts to leech money off of the fans who have loved this since their childhood..

    Ill never understand how people think rey should be with kylo. He would do her character a disservice besides the fact that he is a mass murderer and should be locked up even if he turned into a jedi.

    Who said he was still alive? Obi-wan and Yoda are still busy playing the game through their proxies. Now that his own proxy has come on the scene, it's Palpatine's turn. Finding out who the proxy is should be a sufficient surprise (and no, it's not Poe).

    The whole new trilogy is bad.....they reversed all the main characters progression. Han went back to being a smuggling scoundrel, Luke went back to a whiney milk drinker, and Leia went back to leading a rebellion.

  • michaeljoudan23

    If Palps was the overarching villain since the start of this trilogy then sure it would make somewhat of a satisfying conclusion however, they decided to put him back ONLY in the LAST film, which means there’s no build up whatsoever for Palp in THIS trilogy. Adding Palp now only shows their desperation to save the franchise.

    Bad idea, but lovin' it! I personally think Palpatine is the greatest antagonists in all of fiction. Hence: I wanna see more regardless of how he fits into the story :)
    I swear: I have a 4" figurine of him encased in a shrine.

    Not only is bringing Palpatine back not a good idea, it involves so little creativity that it scarcely qualifies as an idea at all. Star Wars is trying to drain the last drop of nostalgic blood like some kind of parasite, and fans just can't bring themselves to pluck this tick off of themselves. What next, should they bring back Jar Jar too? I'm not giving them any more money unless they start producing GOOD ORIGINAL characters with and GOOD ORIGINAL plots, preferably with dialog which people over the age of 10 can appreciate.

    In the Trailer you hear the Emperor laugh. You get excited or not. When Episode 9 comes out you go watch it, then no Emperor in the Got ya suckers!!

    I don't think the emperor is coming back in a physical way at most probably be a force ghost.

    I would not have given Mance the win. He kind of undermanned his argument when he voice his wish that the Palpatine reveal was not in the trailer.

    Light side you become a force ghost. Dark side you become a force zombie.

  • Kenneth Focarino

    I think Palpatine being back is the only way to go at this point. Kylo and Hux are not intimidating or menacing enough to be the main antagonists. There basically a pair of overly emotional fools at this point, with Rey already being within the realm of Kylo's power level, which would a much less interesting final fight.
    There needs to be a more intimidating, grandiose villain, and Palpatine filling that role could do some interesting things. It would officially make him the architect of the the entire film franchise, like 6 and the prequels did before. It would make sense that the same conflict as 30 years ago started up again if it's the same guy pulling the strings the entire time. You could justify the fan service, callbacks, and narrative similarities to the OT a little easier. It also doesn't really diminish Vader's sacrifice any further than ep 7 and 8 already have, and you could have one grand showdown with Kylo and Rey vs Palpatine, this time with the help of the entire Skywalker and Jedi legacy in Force Ghost form supporting them. It didn't take the Father and Son Skywalker's to defeat Palpatine, it took the entire Jedi lineage.

    Three best ghost horror movies are Frightners, Poltergeist (the original) and Thirteen Ghosts.

    Sasha, get with the times. Showgirls has a strong fanbase, fan screenings, a drinking game etc. It has been reevaluated and is really loved.

    No the Emperor should not have come back. We should have gotten Darth Bane, Raven, Admiral Thrawn, or some other villain we have not seen yet. Bringing The Emperor back retcons the achievements in Return of the Jedi.
