Anakin supposed to be the choosen one, who would destroy the Sith and bring balance to the Force and that's excactly what he did by killing Palpatine. If Palpatine returns then the legend of the choosen one would de destroyed and they can't do that because that legend is a very important and basic part of the entire star wars story. So the Sith Order is dead. This serie of villain characters cannot return, according to the original story, of course.

..umm, you mean do what your brain does best, which is...lure subscribers to your channel and make more money. It must be really nice to have enough money that you don't have to work but instead be able to go to conventions and hang out with others of your caliber. Of course I will be surprised if this comment isn't taken down, but I will be very glad to see these subversive strategies finally banned by YouTube, and more interesting forms of entertainment take center stage.

We're forgetting that Palpatine never died, nor figuratively died in any other way, at the end of Return of the Jedi. He lived on as a force ghost, and his real "death" was when he lost control of a force storm and it consumed him. I think it is likely that he was flung into the future, where finding a suitable body wouldn't be hard and he could use his existing power to gain control of the first order, since Snoke was apparently unable to survive merely being cut in half.

General Hux is Palpatine. He looks strikingly similar to Palpatine in his younger years.

he didnt want to punish him. darth vader could have beaten him easily at full power. he specifically sent him after obi to lose his limbs so he could not overpower the emperor, like the emperor did his teacher

Well, if Emperor Palpatine (aka Darth Sparkles), can shoot frickin’ bolts of lightning from his fingers, perform horizontal spinny jumps, before taking down three jedi in moments ...then I think surviving a fall isn’t so far fetched.

I've subscribed to the theory that Rey is a female Palpatine clone since the beginning. SHe might be female, but it would be quite easy for a master of cloning to switch a chromosome and make a female version of themself. Perhaps to throw people off. It would explain why Rey's parents are no one, it would explain why she uses Palpatine's fighting style vs Kylo in Ep7, and it would explain her raw force abilities.

Palpatine/Sidious shouldn't come back. Lucas/Disney need to let these old characters stay dead. Start new legacies and different story lines. The SWU (Star Wars Universe) is so vast there is room for new stories, new ideas. Let the Skywalkers, the Kenobies, the Vaders and all of the old ones go to the history books. This is one reason the franchise has lost it's overall value in the last 15 years.

My thought is that Palpatine is the embodiment of the dark side. He never dies,but is always there, waiting for the unbalance of the force to make itself manifest. Then he has to die to bring balance back...but he never truly goes away....or something along those lines.

Would it be farfetched to have a theory in which Palpatine pulled a Luke at the end of Ep.8? Hes incredibly powerful and was very knowledgeable in the force, I don't think it would have been a technique he didnt know to create a projection like Luke did and take it a step further and have the projection also use the force. This wouldnt be my preferred theory, I'd much rather them explore the force sensitive clone stuff more.

It's no surprise that the Emperor is gonna be back in some form for Return of...Rise of Skywalker. JJ Abrams can't come up with original shit. The Force Awakens was a copy of A New Hope. How can he remake Return of the Jedi without the Emperor? That would require actually coming up with a new idea.

No one's going to like how he actually "returns." And yes, it's as lame as you think it is: he is simply part of an old transmission.
That's it. The whole plot of Episode IX is that they assemble a transmitter to transmit a message from Luke to the entire galaxy (that's also where the "Rise of Skywalker" title comes from). More lameness from lame-ass Disney.

If Disney is going to Milk this cow it will be a mechanism that will allow Sith to possess force users. It doesn't have to be Rey, maybe Leia. The audience could perhaps see Palpatines image in mirrors or windows as possessed Leia manipulates the resistance into weakness or internal turmoil. Guiding Kylo via dreams of power in becoming Darth Vader. Rey could be the vessel Palpatine wants because of her raw power, and only the combined efforts of all the skywalkers (force ghosts and living) to shut down the pandora's box of sith possessions. Skywalking becomes a mystic thing where one learns space exorcisms and merges the idea of Jedi with Constantine. man, these drugs are good...

Tyler Clark

My personal theory is that Rey is a Sidious clone that Sidious planned to throw the Galaxy off the scent of his continued existence. I feel like she'll be possessed by Palpatine, who then is forced out of her as a Luke-styled astral projection when Rey fights him internally.
She has Force sensitivity that scares even Luke, who says he hasn't seen that much power since.... And we all assume that's Ben. But what if he's talking about Palpatine?
It adds up. It'd be a parentage twist that nobody sees coming, in a true Lucas-eque fashion. I know it won't happen exactly like this, or likely anything like it, but I'd love to see this.
Chewie Sparrow
Chewie Sparrow - 4 days ago
Because Abrams isn't inventive. Come on, he called the heroine of the new trilogy Rey. Rey, ray, as in ray of sunshine in a dark universe. She's the new new hope, just like A Force Awakens is a remake of A New Hope. Regardless of the storyline, Rey will be the good guy and will 'restore the light.' And when that predictable shit happens everyone will start thinking The Last Jedi at least had some twists in it. Abrams will come up with some bland shit that we've already seen.
Adam Collins
Adam Collins - 5 days ago
I'm sorry, but on a scale of 1 to 10 on how dead someone is, Palpatine's an 11. First he fell a super long distance, then he exploded, then the thing he fell down collapsed and exploded, then the thing that thing was in exploded, with the reckage floating around space with nobody in a position to launch a rescue mission. And then, even if palpatine somehow survives the fall, and the explosion cubed, and the empty vacuum of space, he would still have to live til the sequels, which take place some 30 years after the original triology, and old Palpy wasn't a young man the last time why saw him, he was 60-70 in ROTS, and the orig trig takes place 20 years after that, so he would be rocking 110 years under his belt in episode IX, assuming there isn't another significant time jump, so even if he survived the death gauntlet that was his death star explosion and somehow wasn't greatly hindered by the injuries he surely would have sustained,he probably would've died of old age by the time he reached the sequels.
He is dead, dead, dead, dead, so very much dead, more dead than anybody I could imagine, (at least Dooku or Grevious could've had their heads stored in a jar offscreen), and I will not be taking any explanation Disney us gives for his survival, and will just have to assume that the new Palpatine is his perhaps less evil twin brother born 50 years after the original Palpatine, since that is more believable than the notion that anybody could survive just one of the things that happened to Palpatine, let alone all of them in such quick succession.

When Vader threw Palpatine over that ledge, there's no reason to assume that he died from the fall. The Death Star 2 has a radius of about 80 kilometers. There's no way Palpatine fell all the way to the central reactor within a couple of seconds. The "flux" coming up was Palpatine's lighting bolts as he fell. After the fall, Luke had time to drag Anakins body and suit to a shuttle and leave the Death Star before it exploded. Why shouldn't Palpatine survive his fall and have plenty of time to escape? No need for Dark Side hocus pocus. He fell. He used the Force to steer his way to a shaft or ledge on the side (like Luke did in Cloud City). He walked into a shuttle and escaped. Easy peasy.

I don't think Palpatine was aware that Vader may turn back to the light in Return of the Jedi. "Your overconfidence is your weakness." I think the one hole in Palaptine's armor was the fact that he took Vader 100% for granted. Never in his wildest dreams did he think Vader would turn against him and the dark side, for as strong as he was, still clouded his vision. Palpatine could no longer see the light at all. Which is why Palpatine so arrogantly goaded Luke and made numerous references to owning Vader right in front of him.

This would also explain why Palpatine seems completely tone-deaf when it comes to Luke. He really thinks Luke just wants power and that he will turn Luke to the dark side easily. Spend as long as Palpatine did in the dark and you won't be able to see the light any longer.

Cool theories, but let's be honest, we are dealing with Disney. They will find a way to make this as vanilla and uninvolved as possible. Ep9 has a mountain to climb to make up for the heaping pile of garbage ep8 was, and I don't have the faith in Disney or JJ to pull it off.

Seriously... pay someone a thousand bucks that has a actual brain.... to write you a actual script. JJ must be both arrogant and stupid af, palpatine jesus that's just sad.

I think when Luke was looking for artifacts of Sidous he stumbled across a small abandoned cloning facility and all the tubes we’re shattered and no one was there.... he continued to search around until he stumbled onto one tube and saw a young girl floating, a young Rey in the only tube left. Luke couldn’t just leave her there to die. So he saved Rey and dumped her on Jakku.
