Rumors are hard to come by and so when they arrive it’s like getting a piece of delightful candy that’s only available every once in a while. So, on that note, a new rumor has arrived that is so mind-blowing that I couldn’t help but want to share it with you all. Of course, you definitely want to take this with a grain of salt because it’s probably invalid. But if it isn’t…well, this movie is going to be very interesting.
So, here’s the rumor.
You remember a little over two months ago when it was announced that Matt Smith (Doctor Who, The Crown) was joining Episode IX in an important but undisclosed role? Well, rumors surrounding his mysterious character are starting to circle and they are juicy indeed.
It’s been reported that Matt Smith may be portraying (wait for it) a young Palpatine. Yeah, I said it. We may be getting an exciting flashback that involves a young Palpatine in all of his disturbingly evil glory.
Or he could be a descendant of Palpatine’s, turn out to be Rey’s brother, therefore officially confirming those interesting rumors that she may, in fact, be a relative to the Sith Lord.
Ah, there are so many ways this rumor can prove to be absolutely incredible but with the year coming to a close more hints toward the contents of this Skywalker saga finale are fast approaching and I couldn’t be more excited.
What do you think about this rumor? Do you think Matt Smith could pull off a young Palpatine or is this is a bonkers idea? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day. May the Force be with you.
