History of Palpatine

(Welcome to The Emperor Reborn, a three-part series examining the role of Sheev Palpatine and the long shadow he casts over the Skywalker Saga, including the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.)

“No one’s ever really gone.” – Luke Skywalker

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be the ninth and final episode of the Skywalker Saga, according to director JJ Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. The film’s teaser trailer had fans losing their collective Bantha poodoo over the news that Ian McDiarmid will return to portray Palpatine, the Dark Lord of the Sith and Galactic Emperor who died in 1983’s Star Wars – Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

We also know the Knights of Ren are returning to the fold, after a brief introduction in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It appears that we’ll be taking a journey back to some familiar settings, as the wreckage of the Death Star II factors heavily into the plot. Also, we know the mysterious, red-armored First Order Sith Troopers will join the fight against the Resistance, but under whose command?

To unpack the revelation that Palpatine survived his Death Star II Nestea Plunge, and what his return means for The Rise of Skywalker, we have to go back to the character’s origins.

If you wish to become a complete and wise leader, you must embrace a larger view of the Force.
