After more than 40 years the Skywalker Saga is coming to an end. Throughout the series we've had our fair share of big bad villains, from the iconic Darth Vader to Darth Maul, but there has always been one true antagonist pulling the strings from behind the scenes, Sheev Palpatine.
The latest trailers for Star Wars Episode IX: Rise of Skywalker confirm that the elusive Emperor is back after a notable absence in the sequel trilogy. We also got a chance to see the movie earlier this week and can confirm he's in it. Not surprisingly, Palpatine's return has generated a fair bit of discourse and plenty of #hottakes from Star Wars fans.
So now we want to know, after watching the movie, how did you feel about the return of Sheev Palaptine in Rise of Skywalker? Was bringing him back a good decision? Cast your vote in our poll and sound off in the comments!
