You may have heard this rumour already, but good sources are now claiming an Emperor Palpatine appearance in the new “Star Wars” trilogy is definitely happening.
Latino Review say they’ve solid word that the big bad of the “Star Wars” prequel trilogy is returning – to wreck havoc on those poor rebels, again – for “Episode VII” and “Episode VIII”.
According to the site’s sources, the Emperor might have survived that fall at the end of “Return of the Jedi” – but he won’t be the same craggy-old pup. Further, he won’t be played by usual go-to guy Palp, Ian McDiarmid. The change in casting suggests that Palpatine won’t look at all like the geriatrics’s bum he did in the previous films. He will look much different – in some way. Maybe he’ll have horns? Maybe he’ll dress exclusively in pink? Or maybe he wears Princess Leia buns?
Maybe he’s the guy with the mechanical hand from the photo?
I don’t like the idea of the guy returning, it makes the big Ewok disco thing at the end of “Return of the Jedi” sorta meaningless now. Yes, they saved Darth Vader… but the Puppet Master is still alive!?
