Watching through Clone Wars is starting to fuel my Episode 9 theories.

Main one is what if Palpatine and his imperial remnant is hiding out in the ruins of Mortis? I thought that he might be in Byss because of Dark Empire similarities, but that could be a cool way to tie it to the Clone Wars.

It was real all along.


Hate to disagree with you my boy, but I really, really hope that isn't the case.


As he is right now, Kylo Ren is a really interesting villain character, and in one way I would say he's more interesting than Vader. Vader is motivated to kill his master because since he's lost so much he can't bear to lose his son as well, while Kylo is motivated to do it because its a further progression of his strength in the dark side. Having a poorly rushed redemption arc after all that he's done to hurt the protagonists would feel disingenuous at this point. I'm not saying that it couldn't be done, but it would have to be done really well to convince me.


Also this movie is already similar enough to Dark Empire that I'm willing to bet that the Rey in the trailer is just an evil clone. They did with Luke in the Thrawn trilogy, and since Disney has a habit of robbing Legend's grave I wouldn't put it past them to reuse that plot point.

Awesome job!


What program are you using to render these? I feel like you may have said this before, but I don't remember...

Wait that Dark Rey thing with the ridiculous double-saber is real?


I saw a .gif of it on Twitter and thought it was a parody.


No no, this is the parody:






Not going to lie, that saber flip made me cringe more than it made me go "whoa that's SO COOL"

My guess is that they're going for something along the lines of the Dark Empire series.




I'm glad they're bringing the real Empire back. The First Order doesn't stand out that much in comparison to the thing its copying except for Kylo Ren, who has been fantastic so far.\


EDIT: Also I heard someone theorize that that Rey is a clone. I dunno, but clone Vader would be dope.
