Re: More Star Wars films announced
a couple of the novels written after Episode III was in theaters seem to strongly hint at the Emperor knowing through the Dark Side that Anakin/Vader hadn't actually killed Padmé when he Force choked her on Mustafar and that she had indeed survived for a short time after the incident.
Which novels? I've admittedly skipped many of them but I never came across that. Dark Lord
, for example, indicates the opposite: Not for the first time Sidious wondered what might have happened had Anakin not killed Padme on Mustafar.
Thank you very much for your concern, sir, but he does not need your religion, he has science and socialism and birthdays.
