I don't get why the internet is freaking out over this?

The movie sorta implies this is the case anyway, and it's the "explanation" that's in most EU stories, ala Dark Empire and the like.

it's more that the movie's opening act is a total mess, I guess

Sorta... Implies.

Well that's just marvelous storytelling.

Pack it up folks, we lost the star war.

I am certainly not freaking out over it, I don't really care...it is just quite silly this gets "confirmed" in a novelization of the movie.

I guess so. The novelization is based on earlier versions of the screenplay so there would always be some differences when so much changed in production and on post.

The issue bigger than his origin, which I'm fine with being semi-ambiguous, is the Blofeld of it all imo.

Why didn't Sheev make an army of himself then, if all were equally as powerful as him. That would have been insane. Lol

To be clear, my understanding is that Papatine was just a clone body and his spirit or whatever went into him. Not just a straight up clone.

I*d like to thank this movie, for it moved me away from Star Wars, if only for a while, and made me appreciate things like The Next Generation, completely different side of SF spectrum, which I'm now revisiting with fresh perspective.

I don’t think anything can move me away from Star Wars no matter how bad the movie. I also don’t even think that’s the case with this movie. Even if it’s completely underwhelming when you stack it against The Last Jedi, but hey I expected that over a year in advance so I wasn’t shockingly disappointed and took it for what it is.

Yes, TFA is better than this but that’s mostly because the co-writer on that was Kasdan and not Terrio (who I feared all along).
