Darth Sidious, aka Sheev Palpatine, has always been a staple in star wars movies. His character is one of the most interesting and intriguing ones. Though fans get excited every time he is on screen to learn more about him, they have always been disappointed.
Though he was pronounced dead in Return of the Jedi (2012), he ended up coming back in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (you can watch the trailer of the movie here-
When the fans came to know about they were sure that they would at last come to know more about him. They were disappointed this time as well.

There has not been any official announcements regarding Darth Sidious being the centre of any new upcoming films but that did not stop fans from imagining the various possibilities. Ian Abercrombie played the old Palpatine in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. As we will be needing a young Palpatine if we are looking into his past, many pitched in their ideas.
