Star Wars 9 Rise of Skywalker: PROOF Palpatine in Kylo Ren’s helmet? | Films | Entertainment

The first Star Wars Episode IX trailer was full of surprises, but none more so than the return of Palpatine. Just how can Darth Sidious be back for Rise of the Skywalker when he fell to his death in Return of the Jedi? Some fans argue only Jedi can become Force ghosts, or can they? Well, there’s certainly evidence in recent Star Wars canon that Sith Lords can live on through artefacts.

While the Emperor didn’t wear any headgear but a hood, perhaps his soul can somehow latch on to another Dark Side object like Kylo Ren’s helmet?

The wayward son of Han and Leia smashed the object in The Last Jedi, but in the first Rise of Skywalker trailer, it’s been reforged.

What’s particularly startling is that in all the shots we’ve seen of Kylo Ren in the movie, he’s not wearing it.

Could this mean it has another purpose? Perhaps as a host for Palpatine’s soul?

It’s certainly possible and we’ve seen Kylo Ren consulting the crushed helmet of Darth Vader in The Force Awakens.

However, since Anakin was redeemed he became a Force ghost which may explain why there was no response from the object in that movie.

Hopefully, the next trailer for Rise of Skywalker will shed some light on the Dark Side’s plans for Palpatine.

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker is released in UK cinemas on December 19, 2019.
