Star Wars Fans Want Cal Cestis Voice Actor to Play Live-Action Young Palpatine

The Skywalker saga may have finally come to an end with the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker last year, however, little has been revealed about what Lucasfilm has planned for the future of the galaxy far, far away.

While the studio has been keeping mum about the future of the Star Wars film franchise, there's been a lot of talk online about what Star Wars fans want to see next, and some have been pinning their hopes on a Star Wars prequel detailing Sheev Palpatine's youth.

One of those fans hoping to see an Emperor Palpatine prequel believes that actor Camera Monaghan would be the best actor to take on the role of a young Darth Sidious, and it seems like a number of others agree with him.

Posting on the site, Redditor user u/Dr_Charisma has been namingThe Giver and Amityville: The Awakening star Cameron Monaghan as a potential candidate for a young Palpatine. Putting a picture of the actor alongside art featuring young Sheev, the Reddit User says that the actor would make a great Palpatine.

Take a look at the photo down below:

Does anyone else think that, if he weren't already playing Cal, Cameron Monaghan would have made a really good young Sheev Palpatine? Of course, it all depends on whether or not he can mimic Ian McDiarmid's iconic voice...

The post has gotten quite some traction on Reddit, receiving 1.8 thousand upvotes on the site. A lot of fans seem to agree with u/Dr_Charisma. Not only does Monaghan seem to have the looks, but he also has experience working in Star Wars before, providing the voice for Cal Cestis in Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order.

What do you think? Would you like to see Monaghan as a young Palpatine? Let us know in the comment section below.
