For Star Wars geeks, the upcoming 'The Rise of Skywalker' film will surely cause some uproar. Episode 9 is gonna be epic and if you told older fans that Emperor Palpatine would be returning, it would probably be very confusing for them. Here are the best theories and leaks about the return of Emperor Palpatine.
A scene that parallels Palpatine’s death depicted in a Star Wars comic? This just might be the teaser for his return on Star Wars IX. Probably, he didn’t really die on the Death Star and he just used the Dark Side to stop his fall to death.
Set between The Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, 'The Mandalorian' debuts just before the release of Star Wars IX. This causes some fans to theorize that this sequence has something to do with Palpatine's return.
Rey’s lineage has been analyzed by Star Wars since the days of the trilogy. With no clear answer, this theory has been discussed more and more. After all, will Rey still choose the light if she knew that she is related to the evil emperor?
What a way to come back from the dead than to be resurrected by a clone army. One leak suggests that Palpatine has created his own army of clones, different from those we know from Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, to resurrect him.
One leak suggests that when Luke joined the Force in 'The Last Jedi', Palpatine’s spirit was allowed to come back. This theory will make a lot of fans ponder but could it be plausible that both Luke and Palpatine cannot co-exist whenever?
This one leak suggests that for Emperor Palpatine to come back to life, he needs to bring Rey and Kylo Ren together in some form of 'energy gate'. It seems though that even the casual Star Wars need some imagination for this.
Although quite unlikely, what if Emperor Palpatine actually transferred his mind into a clone's body? His survival after the 'Return of the Jedi' was revealed and fans ponder if this theory is possible as his return is nearing.
Although quite confusing, this theory suggests that Emperor Palpatine has put the spirit of Anakin inside of Rey. If this is proven, a lot of explaining would have to be made as this would confirm that the force inside of Rey is indeed dark.
