    Are these legit leaks? Or simply cut and paste jobs?

    This pic of Palpatine looks Episode III merged with the scene of Kylo in TRoS trailer.

    I gotta admit the Young Palpatine idea might work. I wasn’t a huge fan of “Dark Empire,” but with Palpatine wanting immortality, and having cloning at his beckoning, it does seem like a sound possibility.

    I'm a huge spoiler nerd and checked in on Mike Zeroh and others since pre-The Last Jedi, he's been right about 75% of the time i've clicked on videos.. definitely has some legit sources. MakingStarWars has been right about 95% of the time though.

    I'll tell you who's full of sith though, Doomcock. That guy just wants to make everyone hate the sequel trilogy, to the point where he's saying: "If you have any pride whatsoever, do not pay for TROS. Anyone who pays for it is not a true fan." he's just on an ego trip, and wants to take full credit when the numbers come in lower as expected.. while he makes thousands of passive income from jaded sci-fi fans.

    J.J. is right that no movie 100% satisfies fans, even going back to Empire. A few people did actually watch that and go "Man that was great, but not quite on-par with Star Wars" and many more felt that way about ROTJ.

    I feel The Rise of Skywalker has a chance at being a great movie, looking forward to seeing it on the 19th.

    The top one most definitely is fake. Palp's background is still the city, while Kylo's is inside a ship (and it looks like TLJ Kylo, right before he breaks his helmet in the elevator) due to the lack of cape or re-forged helmet.

    The Matt Smith photo is just a screen grab straight from Terminator: Genisys...

    Agreed regarding Dark Empire. Even if I am not a huge fan of the idea, TPTB could make the idea work with the acting talents involved. That said, if young Palpatine was a plan during the production process, (and if the spoilers are accurate) it sounds like they moved on from that idea at some point. We shall see how it turns out. For my part, as it pertains to the powers of extending their lives, I love the powers of the Sith as portrayed in the Darth Bane trilogy and in the stand alone Darth Plagueis novel.

    If they introduced a Young Palpatine, it would entail Episodes X-XII.

    It's fake and sloppy Photoshop job. Just the depth between the Kylo and Palps is off and doesn't look natural, the scaling looks weird as well the colors.
