    Well he would be a new character on-screen.

    You could be right. I’m not saying Snoke definitely is Plagueis, I just think it would make a lot of sense if he was.

    There is the theory (which I quite like) about Revenge of the Sith, that not only does Palpatine already know the secret he claims he needs Anakin to help him discover, he uses it to save Vader at the expense of Padmé - as in there is some dark side way to pull the life from Padmé to use it to keep Vader going.

    Lots of people talk about the way Padmé dies as either ‘of a broken heart’ or ‘losing the will to live’ - both of these are technically not given as the reasons she dies of course, the medical droid that everyone quotes about losing the will to live actually also says “for reasons we can’t explain...”(!). The interwoven shots of Padmé dying and full-suit Vader being ‘born’ could be more significant than they’ve generally been given credit for. It could literally be the life-force leaving Padmé and being used like the spark of electricity in the Frankenstein-like creation of (full suit)Vader.

    Also “losing the will to live” could have been a juicy pun / hint from Lucas for ‘losing the whill to live’... (as in in it was Force-related, to be explained one day if Lucas’ plans had been used for sequels one day).

    Would it be that far-fetched in a story that has also heavily implied it was manipulations of the midi-chlorians through the dark side that created Anakin in the first place?

    So yeah, maybe Palpatine is ‘Plagueis’. Possible! Fun to ponder either way.

    I am increasingly of the belief that Darth Plagueis the Wise has already been featured in all saga episodes already (with the exception of IV), and will be making another appearance in IX:

    Hopefully the forthcoming trailer for IX will be the Spark that lights this thread back up again. We need to execute order 666 pages of posts. Also, any speculation on the “dark side” Rey we see in the teaser? A Sith trick perhaps (Sidious or dare I say Plagueis sending her a vision of her potential future as Darth Ruin or whatever cool name they have in mind for her alt future Sith self)? Feed me, I have a fever (possibly a plague) and the only cure is more Darth Plagueis in sequel Trilogy speculation.

    A theory, Rey falls to the Dark Side (even ever so briefly). Luke says of Rey, “You went straight to thd Dark..” (TLJ). Is if possible explores the Dark Side as she seeks the mysteries of the Force. I know it seems unlikely given her resolve in the Light, but Ben in TFA says, “forgive me.. I feel the call of the Light.” Is if possible Rey feels the call of the Dark?

    What if he never existed and it was just a story Palpatine invented for Anakin.

    Why do we need Darth Plagueis in Episode IX for? He's dead.

    What if Palpatine NEVER existed and Plagueis was the one telling a story to the boy he created?


    Who is more dead: the guy rumored to be or, the guy who was blasted to oblivion in the heart of the second Death Star?

    When Rey unfolds that dual bladed saber in the teaser it looks like she's possessed

    I guess for the nu-cannon they could do that, but if I were advising them I'd advise against it. Hell, that James Luceno EU book was so good I'd love them to just cannonize that bad boy. But I'm a plageius fan boy. :)

    Heck, now that I think about it, I am a James Luceno fan boy and they need to get him back on board writing more Star Wars novels!

    i give up with Plagueis as JJ decided to recycle Palpatine for part 9 out of thin air. and what about Snoke who was promised to be much more powerful than Palpatine? best hope for DP is he becomes the main vilian for Ep10-12 some day or the ST gets a total remake with a story that actually fits the rest of the saga including the most logical vilian.

    I really love your idea about Paderewski being killed by Palpatine to save Anakin.
