After TLJ I thought you'd be all over the amazing, insightful use of colour in the medium ;)

It's more that

this all but confirms the actual return of Palpatine rather than having him return in flashbacks and the like.

I have no idea how they could possibly handle that satisfactorily

(Sorry I'm only ribbing you about your love of TLJ and one thing you used to defend it. Because I'm scared of how this will go. Hold me? :cry: )

Is it possible to learn this power?

I don't want to know, I just wanted to do the quote

Taf's upset over that? I thought it was something horrendous, not that.

Palpatine returning can't really be done any worse than it was in the old EU, and I have a feeling they'll tie it into how Maul survived rather than this being a clone or something.

But yeah, they can't really do any worse than the old EU did. I know I'm not the best person to be saying that considering I never read any of it that came after Return of the Jedi, but even just a look at some of the stuff on Wookieepedia, it sounds too convoluted of an era with just so much "what?" happening. I can see them working this particular point better, just as they did with the Death Star plans [where it seemed that everyone within the old EU got a piece of that action].

I am in absolutely no way upset.

My theory:

The fall didn't kill him. Foreseeing his impending "death," he used some arcane Sith ritual to jump his life force into a waiting host half a galaxy away, where, as Snoke, he eventually rallied the splintering Imperial remnant, reorganizing it into the First Order and all that.

Foreseeing Snoke's end, he then made ready to jump his life force into another being, which was going to be Kylo, but became Rey.


Maybe I'm right, maybe not. :simper:

Couple of neat videos I thought you guys would like:



This one fascinates me - could Disney digitally morph Ehrenreich into a young Ford in future revisions of Solo? I feel like Lucas probably would, if he had his way, and I think fans of the OT would be down with it.



I love that the OG Star Destroyer design has been re-entered into the canon, albeit in a purely cameo form (for now). I would love for this update of the first "proper" Star Destroyer to be drafted in as well.

If Palpatine's back. As in he survived the end of Jedi then im seriously considering not seeing this. It shows a complete lack of originality and willingness to build on the positives of the last film. Although its biggest crime is it badly damages the ending of Jedi the original trilogy and the whole redemptive arc of Vader.

Get the kite, Beavis.

Hey, at least it's not clones of Palpatine reappearing every few years like what seemed to happen in the old EU, and there's a chance they could actually build this into something good.

Yeah, I'd take literally anything else over what IX appears to be, but as long as we don't have another film of nothing but cat and mouse, I'm fine with it.

Yes. By pandering to the fan boys of Star wars.
