I hope so, but I'm not going to be treating my thought as fact.

I guess it depends on which cannon you look at. Expanded universe says yes, Sith can become force ghosts, but I'm not sure if the new Disney authorized cannon has even talked about it yet. Palpatine's Sith teacher was Darth Plagueis, and according to Palpatine himself, was able to manipulate midichlorians, so it is possible that The Emperor managed to learn how to become a dark side ghost. Darth Bane even managed to become some sort of force ghost, so there is definitely a precedent for this.

IIRC Bane wasn't a Force Ghost but a Dark Side Projection cast by Dark Side Pristesses. That was clarified at the time of the episode's original airing by Pablo Hidalgo.

I saw this the other day and thought it was an interesting take on Palpatine's return, which was in line with what George Lucas would of wanted.

The trailer for The Mandalorian is out. All I can say is Holy **** this looks good ! Not to mention the fact that IG-88 will be making a big screen debut!

Never heard of it until now, looks really cool, very well cut trailer.

Freaked out a little when I saw Carl Weathers.
It'd be cool if at some point in the movie he says
"you're an asset...an expendable asset"

Anyone buying this even for a second?
The desperation in this trailer is so pitiful it's saddening.

They don't have the balls to turn Rey bad. Not to mention they already pulled this cheap tactic in the last film.

They had their shot at turning Rey evil, and that was at the end of Episode VIII, if this does one thing, it's a vision or whatever Luke had in that case in Episode V.

Yeah thats what most people seem to be speculating.

Well the mandalorian at least looks promising.

I think it could go a few different ways.
  • Rey is a clone, which was implied in The Last Jedi and this is a different clone that was trained in the dark side.
  • Rey will turn to the darkside and Kylo (Rise of Skywalker) will return to the light.
  • The darkside Rey is simply a vision of what could be.

At this stage I'm not holding out hope that it'll be anything fantastic.
