While he’s known as the greatest and most fearsome villain of the Star Wars universe, Emperor Palpatine’s life before The Phantom Menace is still shrouded in mystery. Much of the fans’ knowledge of his past comes from the non-canon novel Darth Plagueis by James Luceno, but it’ll be interesting to see a film or series dedicated to knowing more of the young Sith Lord. While a project like this could still be well away, fans might have an idea of what the Emperor could look like in his younger years.

This could be imagined through a morphed photo of Palpatine and Anakin Skywalker, which was made and shared by a fan on Reddit. The slightly curly and brunette hair really adds that finishing touch, making a slightly disturbing yet possibly accurate young Sidious. You can check it out below!


Just gunna leave this here from r/StarWars


Young Palpatine’s life from the non-canon novel involves trivial outbursts, killing, and spying. However, exploring more of his story could fill in the blanks as to why and how he became the galaxy’s greatest villain, possibly giving a new perspective of the Sith Lord.
