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.

This theory looks like it is just a retelling of the beginning of Destiny 2`s plot, where main character has to 'get some power' from a shard of the Traveler.

What I think: The Last Jedi wrecked the franchise beyond all hope of beinf salvaged. The best option would have been to go back in time and give us Revan.

I think and don't think that Palatine is alive we know he said something about keeping poeple alive in ep 3 but at the same time he could be dead but be a sith ghost sort of like a jedi ghost

I don’t understand why nobody in Star Wars can use the force to stop themselves from falling. Palpatine can throw those giant senate disks at yoda, but he can’t force push his own body weight away from the pavement? You can’t force pull yourself toward the wall and something to grab onto on your way down? Yeah ok

ONLY the movies are canon. IF the movies have to rely on additional material to provide background for the movie, then the movie HAS FAILED. END OF.

You're wrong, the excitement for this franchise is at an all time low. SJW's and their political agendas killed it. They were too focused on being socially conscious instead of just making great movies.

Amen. Leia character in the original trilogy was written better and had more charisma than Rey, without even want to be a SJW.

I thought Anakin was the chosen one though. If he didn't kill palpatine, then what the hell was the prophecy for?

Thought there was a limit in ruining Star Wars with these pathetic sequels but taking one of the best characters if not the best to try to fix all the errors is really bad.

If they can bring back Palpatine alive then they can also bring back Luke, hence the rise of Skywalker title? If the Rebels theory is correct then I have no doubt that they will go back in time and bring back Luke. Screw it, bring back Vader as well and then we’ll have our all time fave villain back. 👍🏻
