The big villain coming back in "Star Wars" 7 may be Emperor Palpatine. A report by Latino Review cites two different sources that confirm that Darth Sidious will indeed make an appearance in at least the next two movies in the saga. The reports are still unconfirmed and readers are advised to consider the "leaks" to be rumours.
Movie buffs who have seen the original trilogy will remember seeing the character being hurled down a big tube followed by an explosion. According to the report this may not have caused the death of the Emperor.
Fans of the franchise who have seen the animation series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" will remember that the character Darth Maul made a similar comeback in the animation series. The character fell down a tube after being sliced by a lightsaber.
Palpatine may be the one pulling the strings yet again in "Star Wars" 7. Another leak about the movie showed the picture of a cyborg villain, a Sith Inqusitor. The character was seen holding the broken helmet of Darth Vader. Palpatine may be the main villain behind the scenes controlling the new villain.
Movie buffs who have seen the recent trilogy will remember that Darth Sidious first used Count Dooku and later General Grievous to do all the dirty work while he controlled the events behind the scenes. The character Darth Vader was seen becoming his new apprentice towards the end of "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith." In the recent trilogy Ian McDiarmid played the role of Plapatine. According to the report the actor will not be reprising his role.
The new look of the Stormtroopers was also recently leaked from the sets of "Star Wars" 7. The helmet design of the troops has seen changes in almost every movie since episode 1. The Stormtroopers were a big component in the previous empire and were used by Palpatine to control the planets.
