A new Star Wars trailer has been released and fans have finally got their first glimpse Emperor Palpatine but it isn’t how they expected it to be.
Instead of being kept hidden in some secret evil villain lair, the trailer shows an aged and scarred Palpatine resting in a wheelchair of a nursing home. Yes, it seems that the trend of subverting expectations started by director Rian Johnson with Star Wars: The Last Jedi is likely to continue with the next film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Suffice to say, fans have been left less than impressed.
“I’m so f**king done with this shit,” cries die-hard Star Wars fan, Leia Solo.
“First, Disney f**ked me over by doing a shitty remake of A New Hope, then they f**ked me over by letting some guy whose only written two films create the worst sequel in the history of Star Wars, and now they’re going to f**k me with this piece of shit ending to a piece of shit trilogy.”
One Twitter user says “This is so f**king retarded it’s not even funny. What the f**k is Palpatine doing in some f**king nursing home? F**k off Disney. F**k of Star Wars.”
Even non-Star Wars fans are confused as to what is happening with the franchise in light of the new trailer. One user on Reddit has even likened it to the series arc of the hit TV show Lost.
“I mean, I haven’t seen the new trilogy, but it sounds a lot like Star Wars started off great but has no clue where it wants to head now and is basically just making shit up as it goes,” says Reddit user mrpoopybutthole.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set for release later this year.
