    The trailer for Star Wars Episode IX dropped at Celebration Chicago and gave us a whole bunch of things to theorize over. The biggest of course, aside from it being title The Rise of Skywalker, is that the trailer ended with the haunting cackle of Emperor Palpatine. If you weren’t sure about it being Palpatine, Celebration made sure you knew by having actor Ian McDiarmid show up on stage after the trailer rolled, cementing the fact that yes, the Dark Lord of the Sith and puppet master of the first six saga films is somehow back. But how, if he seemingly died at the end of Return of the Jedi? Well, there are a few possibilities for this. The most likely is that the franchise is pulling from the prequel trilogy, specifically the scene where Palpatine tells Anakin about the tragedy of Darth Plageuis the Wise. That’s the tale that told of a Sith Master who was able to cheat death. Perhaps Palpatine really did learn this secret. Another one comes courtesy of the Darth Vader comic, which tells us that some dark side users can haunt certain artifacts and effectively cheat death this way. Seeing as how the Second Death Star showed up in the teaser, this could be the site of Palpatine’s spirit. Another possibility concerns time travelling, and this stems from the World Between Worlds shown in Star Wars Rebels. No matter how it’s done, one thing is for certain: Emperor Palpatine is back and that will certainly be bad news for our heroes.

    Sounds like crap...I'm sure there is some sort of Political Message hidden in there.

    I solved it: the movie will open on JJ Abrams speaking to the camera, apologizing for not being able to have a single one original idea of his own, then proceed with the expected rip off, and maybe close on a time travel loophole and a parallel timeline to allow a reboot of every single movie in the franchise if they want to, exactly like he did for Star Trek.

    in the EU he had clones and even managed to turn Luke to the darkside (briefly).

    They should stop! After seeing Leia "MAGICALLY FLOAT" back to the ship in the last movie like some Mary Poppins sh!t... I thought Disney realm screwed up the movies

    I don't believe he died when Vader tossed him in. Only cause Darth maul survived same with Luke Skywalker so who's to say Palpatine did.

    Rian Johnson - "Kill the past."
    JJ Abrams - "I can't make a Star Wars without completely copying the past."
    Me - "Lick my nuts, Star Wars is a silly story, even with the original trilogy."

    Here's a thought.. What if General Hux is really dark Sidious clone just waiting for the right moment to rise up and take the place of supreme leader.. Supreme leader Snoke is dead now and its the perfect time to rise up

  • Richard Moniz
    Richard Moniz 5 days ago

    Maybe Sidious had been cloned. We know he makes clones of himself because the darkside rots his body.

    I feel like to be satisfied with IX, I'd need adequate explanations for Snoke, Palpatine, and the Knight of Ren. At least a brief mention or reference to Maul. Not to mention Rey's lineage. Disney has left too many plot dangling threads.

    Not Star Wars, Star Circus. How did Disney find that odd collection of clowns for actors, retards for directors, and clinical morons for writers is beyond me.

    He was a Sith. We have been told by JJ that there are NO Sith in the movie. Your theory was debunked before it was made. Your ignorance is astonishing!

      Jean Roch Yes, this whole trilogy is a redo of everything. Nothing new except a sjw appropriate version. It shows the difference between inspiration ( Lucas) and business (Disney)

    I think it's too predictable that Kilo will redeem himself, and if he does he probably die in the process.

    Or he put his spirit in Vader's helmet, which explains why Kylo thought his grandfather was talking to him. Indeed it was actually his... great grandfather.

    The new trilogy is simply a mess. Bringing back palpatine smells of desperation to salvage said mess into something credible. Face it the new trilogy severely damaged the magic, mystique, and wonder of Star Wars.

    "The excitement for Star Wars is back"
    Is it though? Because after Disney's poor handling of new Star Wars, pathetic Solo, idiotic scripts etc, I don't think that new installment in the franchise deserves any credit in the first place

    It’s going to be hard to enjoy this one after the last Jedi. Didn’t they say they wanted to focus on the new characters and not the old ones? So then what the hell are they doing bringing back old characters?

  • Bendy and Mace DeMarco

    My theory of how he survived is that ween he was thrown down on to the endless hole he slowed down his landing with ether his lightning or the force.
