There are a lot of iconic villains in Star Wars. One of them is Darth Vader. And fans will get to see him and his Inquisitors soon in the Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi show. But Vader isn’t the only memorable villain in Star Wars. Along with him, Emperor Palpatine is also an iconic villain.
In fact, it can be said that he isn’t a villain just in the Star Wars universe. His fame is wide-reaching and he is considered to be one of the greatest villains in pop culture. After all, he has shown up in multiple movies of the Skywalker Saga.
However, we still don’t have much knowledge about Darth Sidious. Even diehard fans of the character don’t know his backstory and motivations fully. Now, Lucasfilm is obviously no stranger to making prequel projects.
And as such, it’s possible that they could make a standalone series that focuses on the early days of Sheev Palpatine. After all, the material and scope are just so tantalizing that it must be difficult not to make it.
Now, if Disney and Lucasfilm do make such a series, the question is- who would play the younger Sith Lord? Thankfully, there is current fan art that answers this.
A fanart posted by the Just Jedi Things Facebook page made people sit up and take notice. It was because that fanart cast Loki star Tom Hiddleston in the role of young Palpatine.
And now that we have given it some thought, it seems like there is just no other actor who would be more perfect to star in a Palpatine spinoff than Hiddleston himself. Here is the artwork:
Right now, with a whole gamut of Star Wars shows being made for Disney+. So it’s not impossible to see a Disney+ prequel series centered on Palpatine. In fact, to us, it seems like just the idea that needs to get made.
After all, a series centered on Palpatine that will cover his beginning journey into the darkness would be amazing and never-done-before. Maybe we could even get to know more about Rey’s origins or we could have seen the moments where he showed that he indeed has a heart. Overall, the possibilities are endless.
But did now, you can stream the entire Skywalker sage on Disney+.
