Recap of The Rise of Skywalker at Comic Con Experience in Brazil, The Emperor’s Powers Teased

Director J.J. Abrams and members of the cast from The Rise of Skywalker were part of the programming schedule yesterday at Comic Con Experience in Brazil.

Abrams, when speaking about the subject of Ian McDiarmid back as the Emperor, teased the “extraordinary power” of the character and how exciting it is to have him back in Episode IX as the Emperor is set to have a significant impact on our heroes.
