In a new interview with SiriusXM, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams reveals that his favourite scene from the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy is the opera scene in Revenge of the Sith.
“My favourite scene from the prequels is when the Emperor is telling Anakin the story of Darth Plagueis the Wise. There’s just something about that scene. There’s just two people sitting there. It’s visually interesting. But I just think Ian [McDiarmid]’s performance in it is spectacular.”
We know that Palpatine will return in The Rise of Skywalker. Will there be references to his master Darth Plagueis and his unnatural powers?
