Rumor: Ian McDiarmid returning for Episode VII | Anakin And His Angel

Jedi News is reporting...

"The specifics of the role are unclear, but it seems likely that McDiarmid will be returning to his signature role of Palpatine. Whether as the original or a clone of, we are yet to discern. Again, this has NOT been confirmed by Lucasfilm."

I am hoping this isn't true. I'm actually really tired of seeing villains resurrected in so many films. Everything leading up to his death in ROTJ was extremely powerful and I don't feel it should be messed with. My husband put it perfectly...

"JJ would have to do something REALLY cool for this to not be lame. Vader defeated him and saved his son. Don't take that away from him. Don't belittle his sacrifice."

I doubt they would use him for a flashback scene and it seems unclear whether or not Sith Lords can return as Force Ghosts. Hmm, only time will tell!
