    I wouldn't put it past them to revive him once again for another trilogy in the far future. Hollywood favors the safest route.

    I don't expect the timeline to go forward for quite some time now. We're talking 20-30 years from now if at all.

    The only way to know if Lucasfilm wants to take the eu approach where Palpy had clones available on Byss. The only one journey to see is a movie starting from his younger years till he becomes Senator of Naboo.

    This sums up my own feelings about it. I can definitely see why his return was controversial, although I was fine with it. Especially since he wasn't in other post-RotJ works such as The Mandalorian or The Force Awakens, and thus when he finally does return, it gives off a "one last dance" sort of feel. From a narrative standpoint it makes sense, as Trev said, to tie the three trilogies together. That, and imo there's just something fitting about him being the "final boss" of the Skywalker Saga.

    But that said, yeah, I do hope it sticks for good this time. At most I'd be fine with seeing him again in other media set prior to Episode 6 or 9, although even that I feel should be kept to a minimum. He is a great villain, but his story is told now. For everything beyond Ep. 9, I very much want to see that his evil reign was vanquished for good, and so we can see new conflicts and villains instead.

    They're sniffing around a Plagueis and Palps show on D+.

    Sorry...

    Cheers,
