Now that I see the scene over and over again I'm even more confused.  Perhaps the Darkside alters your appearance in and of itself (explains Anakin's eyes)  But the teeth and face, he seems like a Vampire

You know, I don't know what's up with that Anakin Darth Maul eyes thing, becuase that shot looks like the Mustafar conference room, with the row of chairs behind him. Then, during the duel shots, his eyes are normal. I wonder if that evil eyes thing is just for the trailer, sort of a "look, he's evil, stupids" type thing.

Now with the real trailer you can see the Sidous face a lot better, and to me it looks a lot closer to the ROTJ makeup. He has all the wrinkles around his eyes and the promininent ridgeling on his brow. Works for me.

I guess it boils down to we never see Palpatine's teeth clearly so maybe I'm reading too much into it

A friends Theory...

My friend Armothe posted a theory on another forum about Palpetine/Sidious

"I believe they are two different people. I think Darth Sidious is the original, ancient sith lord and Palpatine is a mere clone of him.

This would explain why neither Yoda or Mace could detect "evil" when they were all at Qui Gon's funeral on Naboo in E1.

This allows Sidious to execute his evil plans undetected."

What are yout thoughts on this?

I sort of agree with him.

Interesting theory... but I still say the reason Yoda can't detect that Sidious is evil is because Mace - who is also evil - is shielding Sidious/Palpatine's evil (as well as his own) from Yoda and the rest of the Jedi. If you watch through Episode 2, there isn't a single time that Yoda is near Palpatine that Mace is not there as well.

I do like the clone theory. Your friend has a good spin on it.

But for me, I'm in this camp: It's the shroud of the darkside. Clouds everything. Even Palpatine's true visiage. When he raises the shroud, BOOM, Austin Powers teeth for all to see. Same guy, I say.  :)

I'm falling more in the Shroud of the Darkside camp as well...perhaps I should merge this in the Sidious/Palps thread as well
