3. The Emperor returns before the movie starts

star wars episode ix the rise of skywalker the emperor's return doesn't make sense

There are a lot of unique decisions in this film that I have no understanding of, and the most perplexing of those is Emperor Palpatine’s decision to return to the galactic stage between films. How can you bring back a character who has died yet not allow spectators to react as it happens? This one really get my goat. If you’re going to cram a trilogy of stories into one movie, at least start things off with some sort of prologue.
