Why Palpatine In The Rise Of Skywalker Could Be Possible SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/nE2uhv-ZCSw : There’s a lot of ways why Palpatine In The Rise Of Skywalker Could Be Possible – In the Star Wars universe, dead doesn’t always mean dead. Thanks to the series’ complicated canon, there are plenty of ways that this lightning-slinging villain could have come back from the grave – or, possibly, escaped death entirely. Here’s how we know Palpatine is coming back for Episode 9.
In Star Wars, just because you fell into a seemingly bottomless pit doesn’t mean that you died. Luke jumped off of a platform in Cloud City, and despite the fact that he only had one hand, ended up just fine. In the Legends timeline, also known as the old Expanded Universe, Boba Fett climbed out of the Sarlacc pit and went on to cause even more trouble. According to Samuel L. Jzackson, even Mace Windu might still be alive.
According to Jackson, George Lucas has even co-signed that theory.
Heck, look at what happened with Darth Maul. At the end of The Phantom Menace, Obi-Wan Kenobi cut Maul in half and then sent him careening down a reactor shaft.
Somehow, it didn’t stick.
Despite missing half of his body, Maul rescued himself using the Force, got himself a set of mechanical legs, and went on to become a major thorn in the galaxy’s side. In The Clone Wars, Maul united the galaxy’s underworld and took over the planet Mandalore. He then went on to make an appearance in Solo as the head of the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate. And he’d probably still be kicking around in the sequel trilogy if he hadn’t challenged Obi-Wan Kenobi to an ill-advised rematch in Rebels.
Characters like Maul and Boba Fett went on to have robust story arcs after their on-screen deaths, even if their ends looked pretty decisive at the time. We’re not even mentioning Yoda, Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, Anakin, and all the other Jedi who came back as ghosts. If you don’t think the Emperor is a big enough deal to warrant that kind of second life treatment, think again. Keep watching to find out the real reason Palpatine in Episode 9 is totally possible!
