Yesterday the Latino Review reported that Palpatine will return for Episode VII. Yes, Latino Review is reporting a rumor that Ian McDiarmid will return for the sequels. Read the full post here.
Kellvin Chavez reported that his source says “Palpatine comes back as a Force Ghost..like Obi Wan. (Sith Lords learned similar techniques, which in some cases allowed them to physically interact with their environment.)”
You can take all this with a grain of salt and nothing is official until the Disney and Lucasfilm release a cast list. However, this does bode well for fans of the expanded universe where Palpatine did resurface. Only there he returned as a clone. Something this source already stated that he will not come back as.
What do you think Maniacs? As long as it works for the story, I am for it. Sound off below!
