    Well the only casting announcement we are likely getting anytime soon is Episode VII... that might mean Palps is back. Meh, Palpatine is an absolute bad ass and everything but I think his death in VI was a fitting ending. Bringing him back would kind of undo Anakin's final sacrifice.

    I don't think he'll be back for EPVII because in the first link he pretty much debunks that idea. But if he's involved in the spin-offs and is around Lucasfilm I definitely think he could hear something about the casting for EPVII. The teams do seem to be working quite close together but I don't know we'll just have to wait and see I guess.

    Ressurecting Palpatine would be good AND bad. Bad because it undoes the events of Return of the Jedi and shows how incredibly lazy the writers/lucas are, but good becasue...its Palpatine and I bet he would be pissed off knowing the people who killed him are off *probably* being all happy family and he will probably go want to get evil revenge on the new cast *which would be awesome*.
    Now a spin off is possible but I bet it will be him and a younger actor playing him *young actor playing young palpy for first half, then fast forward to older palpy played by Mcdiarmid*.

    Yeah I think it'll be a spin-off if it's anything. Now it would be very interesting to see who they cast as Young Palpatine. *cough*Michael Fassbender*cough* The only fear I have with a Darth Plagueis adaptation is if they're using it to set up Plagueis for the ST like they've been doing with Marvel. Do. Not. Want. :p

    Fassbender would be awesome but he's already played a younger version of an old, powerful bad @$$ (Magneto) so I dont think we want him to get typecast.

    Very true. My second choice would be Michael Sheen. I've already seen him play an insane emperor in a BBC docu-drama and I think he'd be fantastic in the role.

    Wait....wasn't he in Twilight? That disqualifies him. ;)

    It would any other actor but Sheen has convinced me in many other roles so I can give him a pass for that one. :p

    But.he.was.in.TWILIGHT!!!!! Can you imagine the panic here if fans saw THIS headline "Twilight actor playing Palpatine in spin off origin film". It would be a mad house :p

    That's half the fun though isn't it? Where would we be if there wasn't mass panic on a daily basis? :p

    We would have to drown ourselves in hobo piss. It would be the only solution.

    Yeah it'll be like the Zac Efron craze X10. Cause I bet fans here will ignore his past work and just focus on his twilight work and use that as the basis for their hate.

    "Acclaimed English actor of numerous Award-winning screen and stage productions to play Palpatine" is the more likely headline.

    But once you mention Twilight I bet that will go all down the drain. Twilight just has that effect on people :p

    In England it would be: "Brian Clough to be Star Wars villain" I can assure you!

    Yep. To quote Bart Simpson: 'I did not think it was physically possible for something to both blow and suck at the same time....'

    Twilight is arguably the worst movie ever created by a human being.

    ANYWHO, my prediction for the SW7 casting is basicly this: A majority of the casting will divide us *some fans happy while others totally pissed* but I forsee there being one or two castings that just thrills a majority of us *and no I am not talking about the OT3 or any returning characters. Actual castings*

    No, Twilight is merely a mediocre series of films based on mediocre books. There are far worse films than those.

    Wow. Just in general . . . so SW fans can't dislike crappy actors and no-talents?

    As for the topic -- D23 seems to be our only hope to get some news. Here's hoping.

    Ok D23, you're up. CEII was a big letdown.

    I'm still saying we're not going to hear the announcement this year. :p I don't think they're going to say anything at all, until a teaser poster comes out...with the Big 3 on it.

    We were told at the start of this year to not expect any big announcements. I am shocked that we have not received any big announcements.

    Yeah, but I'd consider JJ's hiring and John Williams returning pretty big news, and it happened this year. Granted, John Williams was very predictable, but so are the Big 3. It just seems that they're doing such a bad job of keeping these things a secret that they might as well announce it.
