    Really great news. The written BTS breakdown was incredible.

    I think we may be missing something deeper here with this poster. Or...I am looney toons. This is only Palpatine to the bottom of the nose. Below that I see the distinct outline (curvature) of the eye slot on Kylo Ren's mask/helmet. See Below. Beyond that, when you pull back, I can see the ghostly image of the burnt Vader mask vaguely superimposed under and on the Kylo mask. Notice the two dark "nostrils" above Rey and Kylo. They reminded me instantly of the images of MeltedVaderMAsk.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have some more lead paint to drink.

    That poster is not THE poster for the film. It's merely one for teasers. Same pattern and schedule as the other ST posters too.

    ooh interesting! Could be... I mean it is heavy makeup, according to msw Ian McDiarmid is voicing Matt Smith, maybe he is not just voicing him but he's morphing into Palpatine as well? Uuuh

    My 2 creds here: I don't think there's anything to this cool poster other than an image meant to get you excited and in the mood. Movie companies do not embed major story-point spoilers in their promo posters. Has this ever happend in the history of major film promotion? At best, like with this one, posters show core characters relevant to the plot plus conveys, again like this one, the tone of the film. :)

    Cool poster, though! :D

    My first reaction is that....


    Cloaked Rey may be the same cloaked character MSW spoke about.
    They interepreted the scene as Kylo and Rey fighting this character, but probably
    they simply misinterpreted a (reliable) information.
    And the actual scene will be Kylo vs Cloaked Rey, possibly in a vision of some sort.
    If so, many assumptions made so far by many of us should be revisited.

    In addition, if a fight between Rey and Kylo is the image used to promote the movie in all honesty I don't see
    any early teaming up or redemption. If there's going to be one, it will be a last minute one with Kylo "fighting" Palpatine
    for most of the time as a rival of his regime.

    The info about Zorri are really interesting.
    I guess we should put aside any speculation connectioning her to Rey's past.
    Sure, in theory she may still be tied to whatever circumstance surrounding Rey's abandonment on Jakku.

    But I think it would be too much convoluted to connect her to both Poe's and Rey's past.
    Therefore I take her as a character that will serve mainly Poe's arc.
    Which is intresting per se.
    She looks like an ESB's Lando or perhaps it's even more fitting a comparison with Q'ira.
    But why to introduce at this point in the story such past?
    I have some ideas, but I'll talk about that later.

    Because the main point - imo - is still Rey's past.
    If JJ said that there's more to the story and Zorri isn't part of the equation, we have to look elsewhere.

    And I bet on the
    Oracle
    . Non only on Palpatine.

    Like I said elsewhere

    we should ask ourselves what is an oracle in the first place.
    And classically an oracle is someone who provides counsel or... prophecies

    Nothing about that looks real. That looks far more like Keri Russell than Daisy Ridley, but doesn't really look much like either. That's a darn good Palpy impression though.

    Cameos are never significant; that's why they're called cameos.

    His face looks a bit fuller in the poster but other than that... Looks exactly like Hot Toy Palpatine.

    If I had to guess why... maybe because it's translucent? You can see stars and the blue flame on his face. Maybe that's why it looks bad.

    The first thing I thought of when I saw that poster was the poster for Star Trek III. It's very '80s, IMO. I like it.

    I’ve have my problems with TLJ, but I think the poster did its job: It’s confirming that The Emperor is a big part of this movie and wasn’t some nostalgia trick (with a bit part) to get fans like me back in the theater.

    The one thing I will give Disney is they haven’t lied to the fans in their marketing. Luke was nowhere to be found in TFA marketing simply because the movie is about him being MIA. TLJ teaser and trailer had Luke saying ‘The Jedi must end’ and ‘This will not go the way you think!’ so that was true to the movie even if fans like me didn’t like it.

    I would be very mad if Palpatine is plastered on this poster and only plays a minor role in TROS. I think his ‘presence’ will dominate the movie.
