We've just learned that the evil Emperor Palpatine would be making a return in J.J. Abrams' long-awaited sequel, and now it looks like another supposedly dead character is set to show up. After all, it really wouldn't be a 'Star Wars' movie without some kind of appearance from Obi-Wan Kenobi, right?
