    Ever since Emperor Palpatine was revealed to be back during Star Wars Celebration 2019, many people wondered how that happened. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker gave a very vague context for his return, but canon junkies were able to put the pieces together. Now, a StarWars.com story, part of the Star Wars Inside Intel project, is laying it all out for the fans.



    Palpatine's Contingency Plan was first introduced in the novels, in Claudia Gray's Lost Stars and Chuck Wendig's Aftermath trilogy. It was a big part of the third book, Empire's End, where the Battle of Jakku was narrated (the final Battle of the Galactic Civil War). Palpatine staged it all so that in case of his demise, his spirit could be transferred into a clone of himself. This is an experiment he was already starting to work on on the remote planet of Exegol, where he also built the ultimate fleet, his Final Order.



    Make sure to head over to StarWars.com to read the entire story from the beginning, where Lucasfilm Story Group member Emily Shkoukani gave a new and very interesting perspective to Snoke's origin.

    Currently, when I click on the link to get an explanation of how everything fits together, I get a 404 error... but quite frankly, that sort of seems right to me.

    Back in 2015 when we were all wondering who Rey's parents were, who Snoke was, what happened to the Emperor's plan and the Empire . . . I really didn't think we would get the answers in a starwars.com article.

    They left out the part where his broadcast was played in Fortnite.

    Seriously though, I feel like all of this Snoke/Palpatine stuff will feel more natural over time.

    If at first you do not succeed,
    post, post again.

    (Twenty months later. After they've finally decided upon something.)

    I got what I needed to understand Palpatine's return in the movie from the movie. Sure there's probably a lot more background detail. But the idea that a Sith master could enjoy quasi immortality via the darkside is not so remote that it needed the movies to fully explicate this. The idea that the dark side can sustain someone's life is part of Vader's own story, and how he survived after Mustafar.

    Lucas toyed with the idea of Luke becoming Lord Vader after vanquishing his father. Sith apprentices have traditionally assumed the mantle of the Sith they have destroyed. It's all just a half-step in logic away from the transference of a Sith's identity to the one who physically replaces them. And then another half step to taking possession to cloned vessels.

    Make a tv series about it, that's how they usually sort this stuff out.
