    That's what I've been saying.

    But it is theoretically possible to bring him back and at the same time have it be an original plotline, as much as I loathe to admit it.

    The 6 part Tragedy of Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader is dead. The 9 part Skywalker saga is the story now.

    That idea was so 2005. It is now 2013.
    Lucas does what he wants and makes the story up as he goes.

    I see a lot of talk of padme, anakin and sidious coming back, That would make all the other movies pointless imo, And would turn into dragonball z with bosses coming back with higher power levels. First six movies are rise, fall, and redemption of anakin, Let the movies go into a new story and era, Though it will be hard to find a bad guy as big as sidious was. I wouldnt mind a sith holocron and a hologram of him but as far as ghost version or clone, blah

    Why bring back the Emperor? The character had enough exposure that spanned six films. I mean, there'll be an Episode X, XI, XII and they'll eventually have to create some other villain anyway...so why bother? The saga needs to feel new every so often, and bringing back the same villains will only make the storytelling seem old. There has to be some type of closure to some of these trilogies, and introducing new villains and new heroes will only keep the saga from getting stale.

    There should be a new villain per trilogy.

    Plagueis as the overarching villain?

    [​IMG]

    Imagine 1 is ANH and the placement is at 6 ROTS, when Plagueis' name is dropped by Sidious. It makes sense that Sidious would be the one to introduce us to him.

    EDIT: It also works if you imagine that Plagueis exists before Episode I, too.
