They shall return!

As Star Wars: Episode VII comes closer to production, rumors become juicer, too. Entertainmentwise reports that Ewan McGregor's character Obi-Wan Kenobi is allegedly included in the script of the film. So is actor Ian McDiarmid (Palpatine). Read on for the specifics!
It has been suggested that director JJ Abrams may use CGI to place McGregor into past footage featuring Alec Guinness, mirroring the way Hayden Christensen was included in Return of the Jedi.
Jedi News posted: "An unnamed source has informed us that Ian McDiarmid is set to return to the galaxy far, far away for a part in Episode 7."
They continued: "The specifics of the role are unclear, but it seems likely that McDiarmid will be returning to his signature role of Palpatine," adding: "Whether as the original [Palpatine] or a clone of, we are yet to discern."
Speaking about his death in Return of the Jedi after Darth Vader threw him into the Death Star’s reactor shaft, he [McDiarmid] told the website: "I remember it well because it took about a week to get me down that chute with the wires and flying."
"I remember saying, ‘Is he dead, George [Lucas]?’ at the time, and he said, ‘Yes, he is. Absolutely dead.'"
He added: "I guess that means he can’t survive and do Episode 7, unless of course he’d been clever enough to clone himself. He’s certainly clever enough, but I don’t know if he had that idea or not."

Speaking about her fears, she said, “I’m scared about saying what I feel. I believe I’ll end up causing offence. It is unfortunate though.”
