    Did Plagueis foresee the circumstances of the high ground?

    +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!"

    Kylo woulda been like: Come on Grandpa, I heard this story like a million times!

    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.

    Raul Petrascu dude I hate people that do that, that claim they are the true fans because of their opinion which is just a no true Scotsman fallacy. There are fans who probably like it more than you that love the new films, it's subjective and just because you don't like it doesn't mean "real" fans share your view

    RFS Korolev Daedalus - Class Battlecruiser just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's propaganda lol

    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.

    Oh. But even with the character or starkiller base. The names still not original. In the knights of the old republic there was a mandalorian named bendak starkiller

    Well if plageius or palpatine could be snoke.... and people not being around. How bad ass would it be if instead of kylo ren they used starkiller. He was powerful enough to defeat vader and sideous....... yeah I know they used the name for a base..... but to find out that's how it got that name. If you were to consider the stuff starkiller could do in those two games? He'd be unstoppable. Homey crashed a star destroyer with force pull. Shit even Yoda only lifted an xwing

    He created the very thing that would destroy them. Funny.

    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

    You ruined your chance smh...

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

  • Wyatt Hulse

     (Jan 31, 2019)

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

  • TheGamingJamaican

    The most underrated Sith Lord is Jar Jar Binks the powerful

  • CBRHurricane6

     (Jan 18, 2019)

    FUCK jar jar 😂😂😂😂

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

  • MegaBosskill

     (Dec 3, 2018)

    Anakin wouldn't hate sand so much.

    How stupendous wave forgot about what if obi wan turned to the dark side on geinosis part 2

  • NSisFTW

     (Dec 8, 2018)

    Kronos camron You are so dumb. Obi wan’s task was meant to KILL Anakin, not to incapacitate and then save him. By any means he could find to do so. Yoda was to kill Palpatine and Obi Wan was to kill Vader to try and destroy the sith threat. While I agree the Jedi went wrong in the prequels, I would hardly attribute that to Obi Wans faults. And lastly how can you side with Anakin after he killed a ton of innocent (and impressionable) children? These whole “fan theories” really make no sense.

    The most underrated sith lord is jar jar binks of course.

  • Miguel Martinez

     (Jan 3, 2018)

    He can't be, Jar jar is above lords

  • GrimmShadows

     (Jan 3, 2018)

    Well there's a rumor he was Darth Plagueis but Lucas dropped that part of the story after Jar Jar got so much hate.
