  • 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.......
