We take a look at how Emperor Palpatine (Lord Sidious) can still be alive so many years after his Death on the 2nd Death Star. We also discuss who we think we lead the First Order.

    Disney is basically taking the concept of the resurrected clone Emperor Palpatine from the post-Return Of The Jedi novels that became thrown out the window to make the 7-9 trilogy as they have thusfar been making.

    I think we need to see a reboot to star wars with a single story line with a greater explanation. Spend 15 minutes at the beginning going through some history then, after doing this, start from a certain point an go forward. Show us more about the clone wars... the mandalorian wars, show us more about yoda and anikans training show us these grey area plots. Yes the first 3 were great but now we have gotten so far away from those me need to have them flow with each other. Not against

    First off, nice call on Palpatine. Second, totally agree with you about The Last Jedi. Rian Johnson pretty much acted as if there wasn't going to be a third movie. He destroyed so many plot lines and wasted most of the potential the movie had to develop the story. Almost half of the screen time was wasted on that garbage casino side plot that will almost definitely have no relevance to the third movie. I really do think Johnson's main objective was to push some political agenda that he though would appeal to people rather than just tell a story.

    Might sound obvious but the end of TLJ, Luke made Kylo think he was stood in front of him...Kylo 'killed' Luke. Is it not unfathomable that Snoke also projected his image to the room with Kylo and Rey as a test to see how Kylo would respond, if Snoke can feel everything Kylo does and thinks this could have been a test for Kylo. Therefore Kylo and the audience think Snoke is dead, but he isn't, he will now simply come back to episode 9 more pissed off, and this will lead to a showdown with Kylo, which Kylo will win and return to the lightside.

    Or if you really wanna get convoluted...when Palpatine "killed" plagueis, plagueis took possession of Palpatines body. The character we the see right up till return of the Jedi is actually plagueis. After the reactor shaft incident Palpatine escapes the body as it dies and through the force finds its home in a new body, or is some kind of detached force entity. Some time post the last jedi, Palpatine finds a way to reform his own body using the force and this last movie is all about the fully unleashed anger rage and hatred of a now material Palpatine with his own body, no longer relegated to whispering from the shadows of the force and manipulating others...and he's pissed. I dunno...just a random thought lol

    If they decide to have Lord Sidious kill Lei then this could trigger Kylo Ren to join Rey in bringing Lord Sidious down therefore having a bit of a reverse of how Darth Vader was!! Like Anikien lost somebody who he loved which brought him to the dark side, a major death can bring Ben Solo back!!

Couple that with the fact that JJ Abrams actually produced Rian Johnson's movie and it makes it seem like you are just an angry fanboy

They could be just like tales from a storybook that exists within the star wars universe. This will then make Rian's film/mistake all be done in vain, not adding anything like the others did, and greatly remove that bloody smug round inbred planet faced, biome glazed, born to rule, closeted regency homosexual pony fucker, Rian Johnson, from Lucas' vision.

    I love how you blame Rian for Kylo Ren's arch... JJ made him the worst villain in movie history making him beat by someone never used a lightsaber before. And the first order was nothing but a joke. Kylo killed of Three Praetorian guards while Rey barely made it out alive fighting one of them. He also "killed" Snoke which were toying with Rey the entire scene. And after all kylo is the main villain and would have been such a better villain if JJ had got some tips on how to make villains in his first movie. I dislike this entire franchise at this point for trying to recreate the originals like JJ clearly attempted in the force awakens. Snoke was nothing but a Sidious rip off anyway.

    The way I understood it was that it had been relatively implied that Snoke was more of an opportunist, and without any deeper background we are left to just take that as being the vague way he took over the First Order. Now, it would make sense that if Palpatine needed decades to heal himself or bring himself back to even moderate power, that he was fine staying in hiding and letting this Snoke person, maybe the power he sensed, run the FO until he was ready to come back. This only makes sense if the Sheev we get is a Sheev in the flesh or a Sheev possessing someone either directly (Valkorian style) or indirectly (Momin's mask).

      Mês atrás

      Ink Dreams no, that’s how acceleration and conservation of momentum work. Basically, acceleration would diminish (after the initial increase, during which air resistance was overcome until equilibrium between gravity and air resistance was achieved) as he would approach the center of the Death Star. At the exact center, provided there is no object on which to crash, he would no longer accelerate, and past the center he would accelerate in the opposite direction to his fall. But conservation of momentum would make him continue on his track for a while before deceleration overcomes initial impetus.

    Snoke was Palpatine's Force projection. Kylo's "betrayal" of Snoke was staged for Rey's benefit. Likewise the phony skirmish against Snoke's Red Guards, staged to finesse Rey into fighting alongside Kylo. The Red Guards were Force projected by Palpatine as well. Anything Luke can do, Palpatine can do better

      Well, since we literally see Snoke's upper body flop down onto the floor of his throne room and we see lightsaber impacts on physical flesh and armor in the throne room fight, they can't be Force projections. When Kylo tried to run Luke through, his lightsaber went straight through like a stick into water would. Consider that it might have been a ploy by Palpy using Snoke as his bait to see who would betray who... that's a real interesting proposition and fits into his natural talent for using other people to take care of his problems or seek out threats and eliminating them for his benefit or just plain sowing discontent and letting various factions duke it out?
