In this video we explore how Plaueis saw the Sith lord Darth Vader rise from a table after his injuries and how Plagueis was hit by these images after seeing Anakin Skywalker for the first time.

    Did Plagueis foresee the circumstances of the high ground?

    YES, of COURSE he did.

    +Jonathan Crane Probably the same way that Vader was training Star Killer. Just because you're rule of two'ing, doesn't mean you ain't cheating on the side."What is this red-skinned hussy doing with a cloak? IS THAT YOUR CLOAK? YOUUUU SLUT!"

    It would have been so cool if plagueis was actually in the first movie. The prequels seem to have a habit of making references to much more interesting stories then what is actually being shown.

    It was the same actor for 1-6, which is cool

    Jamil Boykin Your desperate attempts at defending the prequels is cringe inducing. To defend a movie that had JarJarBinks as an established main character, you have to be legitimately retarded. You start pushing unsupported fallacies in order to defend them, like the assumption those who find the prequels to be a mangled mess, would find the new even more shit movies any better. Where does this asinine backwards logic begin to establish itself in your thinking? Or is it because the prequels are such ir...

    That actually is the goal of the sith. It's ultimate Darwinism, always replaced by those stronger, sidious broke that and caused the fall of the sith

    I really hope he is Snoke. It'd be much more satisfying than some random new guy who somehow rose to power. With Plagueis's obsession with resurrection, it just makes sense. And Snoke is much more of a believable threat if he is in the master of Sidious, it would be easy for the average filmgoer to understand as well.

    I don’t think Disney cares enough about Star Wars lore. All they care about is making money. They know people will watch anything with Star Wars in the title.

    Conspiracy, his apprentice didn't kill him, he saw a vision of Jar Jar and took his own life

    That's funny cuz the actual actor for Jar Jar tried killing himself

    The most underrated Sith Lord is Jar Jar Binks the powerful

    People keep using this as evidence of George's original plan (which I DO buy into; Plagueis=JJBinks=Grievous...Maybe Snoke), however I don't think this is what George was referring to. If you watch the extra in which George says this, it seems he is only referring to Jar Jar's humor and to the difficulty of making a cgi character work in the film. (George is good at keeping secrets. He may be hinting "Jar Jar is the key Sith," but he probably wouldn't be telling his artists that.) They were d...

    What if Anakin had been born within The Republic and the Jedi had sensed him as a wee baby youngling?
