Star Wars Celebration has come and gone. There has been much revealed about [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158) but there are still many characters who are shrouded in mystery. One of the biggest of these characters, is the villain who is being portrayed by the awesome Andy Serkis. This character is codenamed Uber, and is rumored to be an ancient and extremely powerful Sith lord who has taken over for Palpatine in ruling the Empire. Initial rumors had us believing that Uber was the evil and powerful Darth Plagueis, Palpatine's old master.

This would probably be really cool. Plagueis would make quite a formidable foe for Rey and Finn to face.

However, Star Wars Celebration gave us a few details that may make up other theories as to who Uber is. And that is what this article is about.

Darth Sideous

A big theory is that Uber could be Palpatine(or Darth Sideous). This would make a little sense. Palpatine was the apprentice of Darth Plagueis, and Plagueis had the ability to bring people back from the dead. The new details that describe Uber, describe him as an old man like zombie, like something that had come back from the dead. This could be the undead Palpatine. It might actually work.

A branch off theory is that , since Domnhall Gleeson is confirmed as a full on villain and unfortunately not an awesome double agent, he could be Palpatines great grandson or something who is a puppet for Palpatine to use as ruler of the Empire.

Darth Vader

This is a dumb theory but it is in someways worth mentioning. The theory goes, Uber is Darth Vader.

Could Uber even be Darth Vader?

The guy holding Vader's burnt mask looks to be familiar with it. This is Uber. This would be a stupid idea though. I mean Vader died a good guy, why, if he came back to life would he be evil. There are many clues that reference Vader still being alive, for instance the trailer narration,"My father has it".

Ezra Bridger

I'm only saying this one because i like it so much and it is mine. The theory that Ezra Bridger turns evil and became Uber. This is very unlikely but still worth mentioning.

Personally I still think that Uber is Plagueis but there are still so many other possibilities and after watching the prequels, you know that Star Wars can make bad choices(Jar Jar Binks) that were totally unreasonable. Thanks for reading, and let me know your thoughts please in the comments.
