Palpatine Himself Confirms Why He Let Rey’s Father (A Failed Clone) Live
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker gave us a lot of answers to questions about the series for better and for worse. One of the biggest mysteries of the sequel trilogy was the identity of Rey’s parents. The Last Jedi took the stance that Rey’s parents were nobody, and while this may have been true from a certain point of view, The Rise of Skywalker gave us the true answer to Rey’s parentage. In the film, we learned that Rey was a Palpatine, and her father was a clone of the infamous Sith Lord. However, it did raise the question of why would Palpatine let one of his clones escape especially since he was later revealed to be a failed clone. Well, a new Star Wars tie-in has finally answered that question.
‘Hawkeye’ Director Admits It Can Be Scary Living Up To ‘Fan Expectations’
Marvel directors and actors find the expectations of fans very daunting. The director of the Disney+ Hawkeye series explains that the fans are very serious about the Marvel Cinematic Universe and are very excited about the new projects coming out. Marvel Studios President and Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige have said that even though rumors are fun, sometimes fans set themselves up for disappointment by fabricating more than any one film can deliver. The type of expectations that fans put on the Marvel universe is a lofty duty. It appears that Marvel fans practically come up with their own theories in anticipation of the new movies and series. For some of the actors, writers, and directors, these expectations can be frightening.
Palpatine's Greatest Power Is Also His Greatest Weakness
There are many instances in Star Wars where fans can speculate about what an individual's powers mean and how strong they actually are compared to others. We know Anakin is said to be the Jedi with the most raw power who then embraces his darker side and makes the transition to the Sith.

Opinion: An Examination Of Luke Vs Rey As Relatable Characters
One of the biggest criticisms of Rey in The Force Awakens is that she’s a Mary Sue; an over-powered heroine who can do no wrong. It’s hard to counter given Rey’s CV: she beats up two bandits who try to take BB8, she flies the Millennium Falcon expertly, she then suffers her one defeat; when Kylo subdues her but this then leads to her rebuking him with the Force when he tries to interrogate her. Rey then pulls the Jedi mind trick on a stormtrooper so she can escape and, finally, defeats Kylo in a lightsaber duel.
Why The Vader/Kenobi Duel In Kenobi Will Make Sense
“I sense something a presence I’ve not felt since...” Those were the lines uttered when Darth Vader sensed the presence of Obi-Wan Kenobi on the first Death Star in Star Wars: A New Hope back in 1977. The implication of that line was that this was the first time in a long time since Vader and Obi-Wan had met each other. Many fans thought they saw that particular event in 2005 when Revenge of the Sith came out and showed the epic duel between Anakin and Obi-Wan on Mustafar.

‘Star Wars’ Sheds Some Light On Why Palpatine Wanted Kylo Ren To Kill Rey
For a book that is clearly targeted towards a younger audience and that contains only 32 pages, Marc Sumerak’s The Secrets of the Sith is shaping up to become a kind of treasure trove for all things dark side.

But it also sheds some light on Sidious’ contingency plan and why he ordered Kylo Ren to kill Rey at the beginning of The Rise of Skywalker.
