Rumor: How Palpatine Returns In “Star Wars VII”?

August 15, 2013

Earlier this week, a rumor hit the internet claiming that Ian McDiarmid would reprise his role as Emperor Palpatine in Disney‘s STAR WARS: EPISODE VII.

Despite being killed off at the end of Return Of The Jedi, many have speculated that the character will be resurrected (possibly as a clone).

However, Latino-Review reports that not only will Palpatine return in the 2015 sequel, but they know how it will be done. The site also reveals another tidbit that hints at the movie’s plot.


– Palpatine comes back as a Force Ghost… like Obi Wan. (Sith Lords learned similar techniques, which in some cases allowed them to physically interact with their environment.) 

– Palpatine will not be a clone, not in human form. 

– Palpatine had a new apprentice before he got killed. 

– Once again not going by any books. Not one thing they have in the script is from a book.

Should the Emperor return in the latest sequel?

Filming is set to begin early next year in the UK for a Summer 2015 theatrical release.

Star Wars: Episode VII will be directed by J.J. Abrams from a script by Michael Arndt.
