It’s not a bad idea, it’s an idea you don’t like. You not liking an idea says nothing about it’s value. Avenger: Infinity War managed to bring back Red Skull in an interesting way without overemphasizing him because he already had a complete journey. Something like that could work.

The journey in to the underworld is extremely fertile mythological ground and it would be not only simple but could also be effective to see the spirit of Palpatine in that context. If they try to have him actually come back as a living, corporeal creature I doubt it could work but the beauty of film making is that a lot of things can be imagined.

In fairness, the red skull wasn't trumped up in the first (or any) teaser/trailer.  You usually do that for big characters, not a short cameo. Unless its a famous actor.

Yeah, just making the point that the reintroduction of a character who has already completed their arc isn’t a bad idea on its face.

Inb4 Rey is the child of midichlorians
Twin sister from another mother?

I wonder if they are going to do a Force Vision with Palpatine or whatever like Luke had with Vader in the swamps of Dagoba.
I seem to recall a Star Wars spinoff comic by Dark Horse that had Palpatine return in cloned body.

Rey needs to ditch the storm trooper and get with the wookie. He's tall, strong, there's plenty to hang on to and he's a hero. Unlike the boring trooper. He'd also make a cool noise when he empties his nuts.
