Star Wars Secrets: This Is How Palpatine Is Alive In Episode IX

    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.

    Episode 9: After his triumphant return from Sith Purgatory Emperor Palpatine comes to realize that the Rebel Forces he's been planning to destroy all these years has been reduced to a gang of 8 kids and an old princess (apologies to Leia) thus he decides instead to show this group of rebels/resistance a little love by giving them bus fare back to (enter new location planet here: _______).

    You shilling MF'ers. How? Because of Disney, shitty writers and just retconning with abandon to maximize butts in seats. Don't play us with some kind of canon story lore ffs. Give us a break please.

    There will be nothing deep about IX. JJ Abrams' style is well known. All the newer movies have proven underwhelming, this will be no different.

    The complexity of your hypothetical plot speaks strongly to Disney’s televised claim, during the trailer, that Episode IX is the final episode of this “saga”. For all we know, Ms Kennedy may be a Sith, or worse.

    Darth Vader's Lightsaber, the Emperor would of fused with it both he and it fell down the same place. Star Wars 7 & 8 both follow Luke's Lightsaber so how else can Star Wars 9 end then a battle with the to most know lightsabers in it, just think on that. P.S. Ben Solo or Ray have showed they can use two at once lightsabers as well as being able to fight well together.

    Rose is she in the new episode? So, I thought Skywalker died and crossed over when he vanished last episode? So now he's going to rise from the dead? How is that possible?

    Actually, I think there aren’t enough people who are excited for this.
    I personally want Rey to go full Sith,
    and Ren to be redeemed and he get a green lightsaber.
    Then I would be ok with Disney’s b.s. Star Wars story post episode 8.

    Watch Mary Sue Skywalker will deflect Palpatine's force lightning with a mere flick of her wrists, then she will back flip into a headstand, force grab Palpatine's light saber between her legs, push off the ground, catch both light sabers in mid air and use them to cut Palpatine in half. Take that patriarchy.
    All while the soyboys and feminists roar in bewilderment.

      That's also my big thing about the whole ST. The empire was destroyed peace was brought back to the galaxy. The planets shouldve been at the strongest ever. And then boom "First Order"... what? How? Why?
      Why do the planets not align and annihilate this threat to freedom?

    My heart would celebrate to see him in the movie. But my brain asks: "Serious? You bring back all the bad guys to rescue the prequel? Why didn't they start the prequels with them. Every shot of Palpatine or Maul will be better than every single moment with the third class bad guy "Kylo Ren" and the CGI unknown story Snoke.
