I mean we know Snoke and Kylo aren’t Sith. It could be Kylo is trying to usurp being a Sith though and using these as his personal guardyeah but we really don't KNOW Palpatine is returning in that kind of capacity. Sure it could be that, but it could also be some kind of dark force ghostly presence or something. Don't jump immediately to Palps is full blown alive and returning with an army, there are lots of possibilities for how he is involved. I'd like what you suggest just fine but yknow
I mean there are plenty of options. Kylo is the boss now (I assume), he can do what he wants. Rey gets to remake the Jedi? Well then Kylo gets to remake the Sith. We already know he idolized his sith grandpa and his plan to burn everything down backfired, so why not.
What we know is Ian McDiarmid is in the film playing Palpatine and filmed on set.
Probably a hologram that Kylo comes across or something, or maybe a ghost like the jedi. Definitely don't think Ian plays a full live Palpatine.What we know is Ian McDiarmid is in the film playing Palpatine and filmed on set.
JJ Abrams at Celebration in an interview confirmed that part when asked for clarification. He said he was shocked it didn't leak when Ian was on set filming. We don't know if he is alive or anything of course, but we know Ian filmed as Palpatine in the film.
I cant see it be a hologram thing. If it was a one off scene like that I dont think they would have brought Ian on stage at Celebration and ended the teaser with his laugh. They would have kept it secret like they did Yoda.
I dont think anyone expects a fully in the flesh Ian Palpatine. That doesn’t mean he isn’t back though. And I agree with the other poster that they made too big a deal about it at the reveal for it to be just a hologram or something. (Of course that doesn’t disprove it but man that would be a gross misfire on their part).
I feel safe in assuming there is no chance this stuff is just mere flashback/cameo stuff. They are playing up Palpatine & the Sith way too heavily in the early marketing for this for it to be that.
i can see that. they turned on Kylo when they found out he killed snoke or whatever.
Unless maybe the KOR are loyal to Kylo until they discover Palps could come back, and they decide they would rather have him than Kylo.
I knew people would do that, play off ideas when it's really spoilers.
That behavior is always so pathetic. Like... what is even the point.
