MakingStarWars.net’s Jason Ward, a reliable “leaker”, claims that Darth Sidious’ true purpose in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is to “siphon the Force” through his granddaughter Rey and Kylo Ren in order to rejuvenate himself. And he succeeds.
Palpatine reportedly recovers “his Episode III youth”. But Ward’s doesn’t know if this refers to his good-looking or his disfigured appearance in Revenge of the Sith.
Also, Palpatine allegedly gets a new black robe with red lining.
