    Yes. The Emperor is dead, Darth Vader is dead, Darth Maul is dead, Boba Fett is dead.

    The Emperor's body is dead, but his spirit isn't.

    Yes, have Sidious's spirit floating around now and again, but let's have a new antagonist.

    But then again hes the guy that started the Sith movement. He was, apparently the most evil being in the galaxy or something. Being the puppet master for all 6 movies. This being a sequel, I dont see why you cant bring him back as a force ghost. It'd be cool to see him back in the ROTJ makeup (and not the dodgy Halloween makeup from Sith)

    I think Seldon was saying that bringing his body back would be a cop-out.

    It wasn't him. I'm not sure exactly who it was, but it wasn't him.

    Yes, the Emperor is dead but he will be represented in Episode VII by his illegitimate grandson who will be played by Shia LaBeouf and will be killed in the first minute by a herd of rampaging tauntauns.

    I think seeing the Emperor in the ST would be fantastic. I've always thought that it would suit his arc if he were a shadow of his former self. An arrogant, over-confident Sith confined to Endor, haunting a cave deep inside an immense mountain. Unable to avenge himself and stewing in his hatred. Looking for a way or an opportunity to strike back at his enemies.

    Darth Sidious: "Why couldn't I see?" Wailing
    "Who has eclipsed my vision?!" Screaming
    "There must be a way...PLAGUEIS!!!"

    Perhaps during a Skywalker memorial on the "sanctuary" moon, a young Skywalker explores the local terrain. During a game or to escape the awkwardness of the assembly they stumble across a cavernous space. Upset at his/her perceived weaknesses and unfair treatment from relatives the Ghost of Darth Sidious senses an opportunity.[face_devil]

    Perhaps Darth Plagueis appears in the flesh and explains to Palpatine, who won't have it, the necessity of his fall.

    Darth Plagueis: "Sidious, in order to achieve what the Sith must accomplish, it was necessary for you to take this fall. Through your degradation you have succeeded in destroying the greatest hope the Jedi and the Force might conceive. I have discovered the reason for Luke Skywalker's survival and now you will help me sever, forever, the connection between these apparitions and their mortal progeny in this profane world. The Imperative is all that matters Sidious, and you WILL help me!"
    Darth Sidious: "Yes, my Master."

    That would be really cool if Palp became the apprentice. [face_devil]

    Palpatine is deader than flared jeans & platform shoes.

    So, he is now more costly than ever before and only available at chic thrift shops?

    It means he's out of fashion & only used for fancy dress parties.

    What if "Palpatine" in ROTJ is a decoy?

    An illusion used to trick the treacherous Vader into sacrificing himself. ;)

    Brilliant. Also removes manacles with the wave of his hand. Master illusionist. If he had've survived maybe we would've seen him saw Vader in half.

    If this line of discussion somehow lends itself to the return of long-deceased (and forever inept) "Palpiclone" theories of a decade ago... there will be punishments meted out for the vandalism of our forums. Severe punishments. :p

    It was a droid made up to look like Palpatine.

    I think a decoy, although possible, would be viewed by most as cheap parlor trick.

    We should tolerate all theories, no matter how nonsensical they may be.

    You were not here. There will be bannings if it turns back into what it used to be. Just as there were bannings for it back then.
