Star Wars actor Ian McDiarmid hints that he may be making his return as Emperor Palpatine in either the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi or Andor.

Star Wars actor Ian McDiarmid hints that Emperor Palpatine may return in either Obi-Wan Kenobi or Andor. The actor made his first appearance as Sheev Palpatine in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace and most recently made his famed return in Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker. With the Emperor being the center of influence over the Galactic Empire, the character has often come to mind in recent live-action Star Wars series that are set within the Empire’s time.

Both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Andor take place before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, which marks the height of the Empire’s reign. Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen) will be making an appearance, something that has often been hinted by both Christensen and Obi-Wan Kenobi director Deborah Chow to be casting a shadow over Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) and his ventures through the galaxy. The timeline of Andor, however, also may provide for Vader’s hand in things, which would give the Dark Side even more of an influence over Cassian Andor’s (Diego Luna) story than previously assumed. Vader’s appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story makes this idea even more plausible.

Now, McDiarmid has hinted at Palpatine joining in on the Dark Side’s shadow over either Obi-Wan Kenobi or Andor. The actor teased during his panel at the most recent edition of the Imperial Commissary Collectors Convention (via Star Wars News Net) that viewers will “feel [his] presence” in a series that takes place during a time when he was “considered to be very active.” Though he shared that he can’t confirm whether or not it’ll be through a physical appearance, his influence will still make itself known. Considering both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Andor fit this description, it’s hard to tell which one he’s referring to, unless he’s purposely hinting towards the answer being both series. See his full quote below:

There’s a certain show coming soon set right around the time I may have considered to be very active. Whether or not you will see my physical body, I cannot comment on. But you will certainly feel my presence.

With Palpatine being the “Phantom Menace,” his shadow has long since cast a heavy shadow over characters such as Obi-Wan and Cassian. It’s not impossible for Palpatine to then appear in both of their shows, especially as Obi-Wan faces Vader again and as Cassian works with the early Rebellion to gather intelligence from the Empire. It is, however, a little more likely that Palpatine will fit into Obi-Wan’s story as the Jedi gets hunted down by Vader and his Inquisitors. Palpatine would no doubt like to keep tabs on any of the Jedi who weren’t eliminated in Order 66, and the discovery of Obi-Wan would give the Emperor another foothold through which to continue manipulating his apprentice.

The inclusion of Palpatine would be a great expansive effort for both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Andor to connect back to the films from which they originate. Each series is tackling a very undiscovered part of the Star Wars timeline, though a very beloved one by viewers. Sitting directly between the prequel Star Wars trilogy and the original Star Wars trilogy, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Andor each have a mission to bridge together two important eras of the galaxy in a way that will offer the perfect amount of prequel and original era nostalgia. Palpatine’s presence would surely aid both series in that effort, which makes McDiarmid’s words even more exciting to hear.
