According to this Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker review, "Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) lives, and has sent a message to the galaxy threatening revenge with a huge fleet of planet-killing ships."
In honour of that here he is yards from our office in Merton Abbey Mills.
Derek Jacobi is there as well; two emperors for the price of one (remembering I Claudius). While we are on the subject, Ian McKellen has visited as well.
I don't know what they were doing here, I just remember noticing it here on the Colour House Theatre website a while ago, and it popped back into my memory this morning.
