Criticism of the ‘Star Wars’ sequel trilogy has not subsided since the films’ release. If ‘The Force Awakens’ was called continuity, ‘The Last Jedi’ was divisive precisely the opposite. On the other hand, ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ was the subject of sharp words from both professional critics and viewers. Whatever happens, whether you like it more or less, what is said in these products is part of the official canon. and Lucasfilm has no intention of erasing what has been told in them.

After the premiere of Episode IX, the company founded by has not delved too deeply into the characters of the new trilogy. Just a few comics and some novels, among which ‘Shadows of the Sith’, by Adam Christopher, stands out. a book that masterfully connects with the aftermath and that reveals some of the elements that were omitted in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’. The same occurs with certain current comics about the figure of Darth Vader, which outline the story of Ochi de Bestoon, another of the characters mentioned in the ninth film of the saga and who has a relevant role in the development of the plot.

On the other hand, series like ‘The Mandalorian’, ‘Ahsoka’ or ‘La Remesa Mala’ are adding details about the era after the Galactic Empire, the decay of the imperial remnants and the future birth of the First Order.

Project Necromancer explains why Palpatine was resurrected in the new canon

Emperor Palpatine is a key figure, the great villain of ‘Star Wars’, who manipulates and manages the levers of the galaxy as he pleases. Ian McDiarmid, the actor who plays him, said that he always thought that Darth Sidious would have alternative plans to stay alive even if he was killed. Just like in the Expanded Universe, the Sith was resurrected and returned at the end of Episode IX in all his glory. “Somehow, Palpatine has returned.”. Although it was not explained in the movies, thanks to the series, the Necromancer Project has been revealed, a series of cloning experiments that explain the resurrection of the emperor.

This film will explore the creation of the New Jedi Order after the death of Luke Skywalker. Daisy Ridley will return to play the character, as announced at the last Star Wars Celebration, waiting for the final script to be completed and the filming date to be confirmed.
