  • Get yourself some NEW Theory Wear!! ►

    Since the trailer release of Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker, my theory brain has been FULL of ideas! Today I want to focus on the big reveal of the trailer - Palpatine is BACK... or is he? You see, I think there's a connection between the Emperor and our young hero, Rey. Is this the proof we need to say that Rey is destined for the Dark Side? Watch to find out!

                              If rey has no mother then palpatine could have created rey with the force, like how plagueis made anikan. But I dont know how the pregnancy would work.......

                                      Still though, does Disney itself consider the novels mentioned cannon?

                                          The first thing I thought when watching this video was: “is any of this cannon anyway?” even though matpat was right that Palpatine was related to Rey, but it wasn’t through force cloning things, it was through standard reproduction, as seen in the movie

                                                        The only thing that i liked about reys character was the fact that she was a nobody for once you didn't have be the chosen, the apprentice of the most power sith, the son of the chosen one to be become like a good jedi and that was really cool
