Emperor Palpatine back for Episode 9 – Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

We all know that Emperor Palpatine is back, but in what capacity? Star Wars: Episode 9 – The Rise of Skywalker is bringing back the ol’ face of evil, and I’m a little nervous about it. It could be great! Or it could feel ham-fisted and forced. Crossing my fingers! Star Wars: Episode 9 – The Rise of Skywalker is slated to release on December 20, 2019.
