The Emperor Rumored Again For Star Wars: Episode VII and More

Body

Even though we saw The Emperor's body blow up in Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, again it's being said Darth Sidious will return for the new movies.

This time, however, the new rumor is stating The Emperor will return in Star Wars: Episode VII and Episode VIII -- and will be the main villain responsible for pulling all the strings.

The info comes from Latino Review who states The Emperor will be the big bad, and that he somehow survived being thrown down the tube.

It's also said this time around, The Emperor will be played by a new actor and not Ian McDiarmid.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" has a December 18, 2015 release.

Head on over to the Cosmic Book News Star Wars hub for more.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by LawrenceKasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer.

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
