Rumour: McDiarmid to return as Palpatine

Recommended Posts

Andy

Thought to be killed on the second Death Star in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, rumour has it that Ian McDiarmid is set to reprise his role as Dark Lord of the Sith and Emperor, Palpatine, for Episode VII.It is unknown at this point what this would mean, but some sources indicate Darth Sidious may be returning as a Force ghost as we have previously seen from Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda. Other sources seem to indicate a clone scenario like the cloned Emperor Palpatine's return in the expanded universe, although it has previously been suggested that elements from the expanded universe would not be carried over to the new Star Wars trilogy.

Wild speculation or possible storyline? What do you think?

I know the EU gets into this, but I'm hoping not.  I hate when series get into the whole "the villain is never truly dead" thing.

Me too, I imagine it's just a rumour... I'd much prefer an original villain.

Or at the very least, Palps makes an appearance as a holocron image/tutorial , or something...so he's still dead, but this is all new footage. :)

I could live with that.  Flashbacks, dreams, holocrons, etc. are one thing.  I just don't want the Emperor walking in in a new clone body.

*walks in in a new clone body*

I think that must have been my longest lasting clone body. :p

Amazing how long sith lasts around here when we're not stomping all over the place and shooting it up like a drunk and high 80s band.
