    At first I thought it was the Emperor (since I saw the Imperial Red Cloaks) but he is kneeling down and in Twitter someone said he could hear Vader's breathing...

    seeing how the cloak falls from the shoulder and the pointed shape of the hood it is someone with a large shoulder piece and a helmet on. Now who could that be.....
    The red guards are guarding Palpatine in his bacta tank bath

    It's Vader in a newer costume. Maybe a costume for battles?

    The point in the head reminds me of how Vader looks in Rebels.

    Could be that he is wearing some kind of prototype after Ahsoka f***ed him up on Malachor.

    MOD EDIT:
    Watch your language.

    I don't see Ezra ever joining Vader. He would fight to the death.

    Mabye it's Snoke. He could've been Vaders secret apprentice or something like that and fell into disgrace, then went to hide somewhere until the Empire fell, then rebuilding an Empire (First Order) after his beliefs. Anyways, I wouldn't believe they pull the 'Who is Snoke card' already with Rogue One. But perhaps it is Mads Mikkelsens character and we will be introduced to him not as Snoke but as somone else in Rogue One.

    You guys have to remember the Palpatine is really short, like really short, it may look like he is kneeling but really he is just hunched over. Vader is in the Bacta tank. Why would the Emporer's personal guards be there?

    to be honest one of the most interesting scenes in the trailer, because of the mysterie.

    I think that it is not the emperor. The imperial guards look like they are already standing there guarding the bacta tank (?) could be Garen Malek, could be Vader....could be someone new

    Also, Rogue one is a movie focused on soldiers, not sith or jedi. Why have a completly new sith in a movie about the rebellion. Stick with the sith you got (Vader and palpatine). I dont want to see another lightsaber in a movie about the galactic civil war. Edit* We need this movie so it can develop the team of rebels so we can get to know them, there are so many new characters in this movie already. IMHO the secret apprentice idea while its cool, sounds kind of dumb.

    I honestly don't think they'd have a new apprentice, as Palpatine and Vader followed the Rule of 2; but I wouldn't mind an Inquisitor or new character that fits into this storyline as Vader will probably have limited screen time.

    Just those royal guards, though. They are Palpy's personal guards.

    I'm leaning towards an inquisitor type character, especially with all the Rebels and TFA things out. Though speaking of Rebels, that figure reminds me also (as said here earlier) that Vader has a more pointed helmet in that show. And one thing that I give Disney credit for, is that they are VERY good at making all things produced of the same "name/content" tie in to one another in some shape or form. It may not be blatantly obvious, but it is there, every time.

    I just want a real meaning to this phrase:
    "Vader: She must have hidden the plans in the escape pod. Send a detachment down to retrieve them; see to it personally, Commander. There will be no one to stop us this time!".
    And this are my theories:

    1.- Vader's secret apprentice: he changes from imperial to rebel, Vader crushes him but he won to the rebellion time and the plans of the Death Star. But this could be maybe very predictive (not that I really care).

    2.- What if is not He but She like a Mara Jade kind, that would be more accurate since as far as i remember Vader never has imperial guards around him that is more like Palpatine. And Felicity Jones well at least in the trailer seems for me a little bit suspicious the way she get into the rebellion. At the end she turns of side and well...

    3.- Maybe Vader but they would need a very good reason for him to not be using the classical armor, but this one is very unlikely.

    4.- Anyway some kind of inquisitor and I think this is the most likely since they where introduced in Rebels and as far as we know there are more of them out there.

    Anyway I just hope they for not to mess with the OT continuity.

    If I wasn't using my meta-knowledge to guess and just went off of instinct I'd say that it looks like Maul to me (especially when those doors open on Naboo), but... I mean, that's not gonna happen. If Maul's gonna get reintroduced to the films it won't be in Rogue One.
    I don't think that it's Vader, that head just looks too much like a hood to me, so (though this is still very tentative for me), I'm going with Palpatine for now.
    Though I do like the Secret Apprentice theory, it had the same problem as Maul to me, too much to introduce in this film right now I think.
