From the morning spoilers there is a thought that the Emperor could come back (either as a clone or as a how on earth are you still alive Sith) for Episode VII. I have to say with what I read in today's morning spoilers I actually don't want Episode VII to be made. Possibly no Chewbacca and possibly a dead Emperor who is alive. Also possibly trampling on the tie-in novels. The more I read the more I hate Episode VII after it started out so promising by bringing back the main cast.
The tie-in novels have created some awesome frame-work for a new trilogy. Please don't ruin everything!
