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.

  • It’s still gonna suck...

  • Also, you didn't include clone pods..

  • I honestly think Luke has turned to the darkside. That laugh sounds more like the joker which Mark Hamill (Luke) is the go to guy for

  • 10/10 has to be vader helmet. If darth sidius created vader he could attach himself to a helmet for sure. He learned what darth plague couldn't I think.

  • Man oh man the more I think about this trilogy the more I see Episode 8 as a giant hole in between two great films. Like what were they thinking with the "last jedi" it just seems nothing was accomplished in that film

  • I love how he talks about Palpatine as the Senate, he is correct.

  • I wonder if their making Skywalker A title for new Jedi like Darth for the Sith

  • Sadly 90% of all material year covering is no longer Canon remember that. The mouse gave SW to the new Emperor Emperor Kathleen Kennedy, and her dark underling Darth Rian roundhead Johnson

  • I'm sadly done with DisneyWars.. Disney has no idea how lightsabers work... Or how to tell stories

  • I am willing to bet that he's on a holocron. Giving instructions and that's how Snoke found Ben Solo.

  • Maybe Darth Vader's helmet was the thing that Palpatine cherished and managed to put his spirit inside

  • Not trying to be rude but your going into this too much He probably just used the force to latch onto something (probably a ship or escape pod)

  • It makes sense. In Return of the Jedi, Yoda told Luke how that "tree" was tainted basically with the Dark Force. Maybe a Sith attached himself to when he died. I think it was in one of the books that it was a Qui Gon's first Padawan. I'm not 100% sure though.

  • He obviously did not die. Obviously used the force to direct fall to a safe spot

  • "I Am... alive...." :)

  • After the last Jedi..... Ray is going to win without any struggles and she's going to automatically know how to do everything perfectly like she has in the last two movies ,the bad guys are going to lose the end

  • The movie is going to suck like the last two movies.

  • Excitement for Star Wars? Not since Episode 7 ruined Star Wars.

  • didn't we watch a new hope already?

  • Ironic. Also, UNNLLIMITTEEDDDD POOOWWAAAAAHHH!!

  • 1:38 Palpy? lmao

  • Bro its been ages since he died and hes back

  • There is one book that explains how Palpatine can live. I believe it was the Thrawn Trilogy where they go to a planet Wayland where he has a cloning facility.

  • He is a clone

  • It is pure Bullshit to me that The Emperor is being brought back. I like the work that Screen Rant did here though with their research.

  • I've always thought that Plagius survived the assassination attempt by Sideous and was going to show up instead of Snoke. But oh well.

  • the only thing i know for sure is that if they brought Sheeve back just so little miss mary sue can have a “final boss” to kill, then the franchise is as good as dead.

  • I can't wait for this movie

  • They simply MUST kill off ALL the old actors so they can move on. They don't feel like unless all the classic characters die that it can't be STAR WARS of today. I do not see why having to KILL the past is so important. IT would not hurt things if Luke Lived and having him die like they did made no sense. Why can't these youth obsessed directors understand that this doesn't need to be done to advance the story. IF the past didn't matter then why would so many fans be upset?

  • This is a piece of sh***t

  • Honestly can't say I'm excited for it, The movie will probably create more questions than it answers.

  • Just more BULLSHIT to get fans back to watching this dead franchise......SOUNDS VERY DESPERATE, AND YOU FOOLS ARE REACHING BEYOND HARD...LOL!!!

  • You all know what happened. Palpitine just grabbed on to a conveniently placed pole at the bottom of the reactor shaft. Just like all the other guys. Heck for all we know Han will have done the same thing as Maul did... 🤔🤔🤔

  • Coming up with all these theories is what makes people end up hating the actual production. We're not able to enjoy things because we get our hopes up way too high.

  • Rey is leia clone

  • I hope Abrams can make long-time fans proud of this movie. Wrap it together. This video is hopeful that he did.

  • Star wars solo doesn't make sense... DARTH MAUL DIED BEFORE THE EMPIRE STARTED

  • Darth Momin spirit lives in his helmet. So Darth Monin mimics Dr. Fate

  • The new movies are so bad I mis lucasfim. Like if you mis him to

  • Rey always looks likes she was leaning to the dark side especially when training with Luke. But Kylo in the last Jedi looked like he was leaning a little bit into the light as he is in his star fighter and hesitates to shoot his mom.

  • Emperor posses jar jar

  • I say its vaders saber

  • So, basically... Horcruxes?

  • "That remains to be a partial mystery." So it's a complete mystery. Sounds about right

  • Why is no one talking about a holocron?

  • how about a sith force gost

  • The Emperor could have latched himself to the Throne.

  • pick up the books! palpatine survived episode IV due to the fact he hoarded the clone tech! disney has screwed everything up! they can burn in hell & shame on you george lucas!

  • he's not alive. its a Force vision, a flashback, or something like that. vader killed him.

  • Best line from the Emperor (talking to an aid) (laughing) "So I threw the Senate at him!" (laughing) lol

  • what are the odds that maybe darth didn’t die just because of his suit being damaged and not being able to breath but because Palpatine stole his life and created another for himself as he was falling

  • Are you able to latch a spirit to another being

  • :(( me when Palpy dies 😃😃😃😃😃😃😃 when he is back

  • Idk, these past star wars movie sucked so bad and most of the films are episodes 4,5 and 6 with other movies in there somewhere. They might as well bring back Jar Jar Binks and make him reveal that he is a sith lord. Then it may be more entertaining....... Now that would be an amazing plot twist.

  • Plot twist: Palpatine is also a Skywalker.

  • I'll tell you guys what's going to happen. They're going to pull an Avengers: Endgame on all of us and bring back Palpatine, Anakin Skywalker, and Luke Skywalker. It's not going to make any sense whatsoever. Abrams will do this because of Rian Johnson's train wreck.

  • Kill Rose!

  • What if it's darth Vader's helmet that they find and then they fight him

  • Un-skippable 30 sec ad before video starts? Nah not worth waiting for. Disliked and gone.

  • every time an ad comes on i'm downvoting....ffs STOP IT

  • Love this guy

  • (Spoiler alert if you haven’t seen all the Star Wars movies) The one thing I don’t like about Darth Sidious returning in episode 9 is, Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader) was the chosen one who was suppose to kill him and bring balance to the force, yet they can’t bring Anakin back because he is a ghost now, and Luke would’ve been the new chosen one but he can’t kill him either because Disney made him die for no damn reason Like good job ruining that prophecy Disney Lucasfilm why did you sell Star Wars

  • Possible Palpatine is coming as a force ghost?

  • Frankly... I Love the Emperor to WIN the whole thing and have the last laugh. Jedi are annoying and contradictory.

    • He won't have the last laugh, Disney will.

  • Frankly... I Love the Emperor to WIN the whole thing and have the last laugh. Jedi are annoying and contradictory.

  • I've got a bad feeling about this.

  • Great Star Wars has horcruxes in it now. Expeliamus.

  • Palpatine is a hologram, and still very dead.

  • Wow. What a grabbing at hairs and so contrived. Use the logical choice since the empire was involved with cloning.

  • I predict it's a time loop. Palpatine knocks up Rey, then she goes back in time to become Anikins mother. "Luke, I am your grandmother...."

  • Fans: "We know what happened to Darth Plagueis, Palpatine, YOU KILLED HIM!" Palpatine: "NO! I AM DARTH PLAGUEIS!"

  • No f@$##:& ewoks. They better not screw the pooch on this one. Im still mad as hell after the last movie.

  • And yeah Snoke is just an unsuccessfull clone od Palpy

  • Wait I just noticed: Bring balance to the force, Kylo was intended to be balance between light and dark, does it mean that Kylo is one of Anakin responsibilities, He was intendes to be created to fulfill his destiny everyone were talking about???

  • Darth Vader May have a bad opinion about more than 2 light sabers of any kind but palpatine can handle it

  • The excitement is not back... NOT YET

  • Another Star Wars movie made by people who don't like Star Wars.

  • Confirmed continuing trilogy after Episode 9... Ian McDermind and Ewoks will confirm fan suspicion that this trilogy is just rehashed original trilogy... though it will be better than The Last Jedi, this movie will do its best to clean up what Rian Johnson destroyed; but if he is confirmed to do the new trilogy Disney has destroyed the franchise...

  • Simple the reason Palpatine will return is because Goth Slater and Supreme leader Gollum are lame villains that couldn't scare a six yard old and J.J. doesn't have a creative bone in his body so go back to the well

  • I think it’s obvious that they add Darth Sidious because they needed to bring back some fans. I don’t think it was last minute, but I think after the divided reception of TLJ, there’s no doubt the script had to be altered to add Palpatine. I think he’s still dead, but his dark force ghost is haunting something or someone. Maybe Kylo is being haunted by Palpatine. Just a thought...

  • It’s a ruin they need to recover to destroy the first order

  • Diying

  • Palpatine: Kylo Ren...my apprentice is on her way. She will...take care of you :)

  • Also..... Who's to say palpie didn't learn the powers of Malgus, Valkorian, and many before? He was seen as the most powerful sith in generations after bane's rule of two...

    • +Thomas Botts I honestly wish that wasn't so. The old republic era has some really awesome lore. :(

    • Tommy Reslin you’re right, I really didn’t think that comment fully through.

    • Well, that would be difficult since malgus and valkorian are part of the EU which disney has rendered non-canon

  • I am excited... NOT!

  • I think that Snoke was Palpatine in a failed clone body. This wouldn't be his first time coming back from the dead.

    • My best guess Snoke was one of the guys in purple robes in the throne room with varder and the emperor in return of the jedi. They are credited as imperial dignitarys however they can easly be inquisitors. Go back to episode 6 and pause and look at the taller one

  • Rei is a child of the emperor, ala The Old Republic

  • I gotta be honest, I love the Emperor from the OT. He is such a boss.

  • Solo sucked overall and so did rebels.. change my mind.

  • it's a holocron

  • there was a clone of palpatine in the books.

  • You know how Yoda, Qui-gon Jinn, Obi Won, and Luke never die through the force? Yeah, this is probably how Palpatine will talk to Kylo... Don't get your hopes up. The post modernists are going to take your money and kill you culture while they do it.

  • If Star Wars episode 9 does not have my Star Sun Crusher, Star Wars is (((TRULY)))) dead.

  • this movie will be a flop just like the last jedi....at the end its only a recording (a hologram)..

  • Sidious is not coming back in the flesh. He's just coming as hologram, robot, or recorded video that Rey looks with Finn. He's not coming in the flesh to be a threat to the characters.

  • Star wars ended at episode 6 as far as I'm concerned. Not even going to see this.

    • Evan Healy Oh, I'm not the only one. Besides, you cared enough to comment, so I know you actually care a great deal about it. Keep talking and prove me right again.

    • J C well its genuinely the truth, no one cares about your viewership 😭😂

    • Evan Healy Like every comment on the internet ever. How insightful.

    • J C well don’t believe anyone cares

  • Palpatine is the FIRST Skywalker! Father of anakin and grandfather of Luke and Leia

  • Clones? In the o.g. books he had clones and could transfer his consciousness.

  • Who ever wrote this clearly knows nothing about star wars.

  • i'm not watching this movie until i can watch it for free somewhere anyway.
