In the novel Darth Plagueis by James Luceno, which is an absolutely amazing book, we get this cool scene where Darth Plagueis teaches Palpatine about Sith Force Lightning for the first time. I always wanted to see this animated, so here is a super simple quick one.
This type of quick animation could open doors to fan-fictions on a consistent basis, such as, what if Anakin learned Force Lightning, which is something I always wondered against Obi-Wan Kenobi in Revenge of the Sith...

I've been reading that Novel recently, it's pretty much what happens, Palpatine asks him practical questions at the end of every speech and seems to care less and less 🤣😂

I like how you gave Plagueis the "Crest of the Sithari" around his cloak and not Palpatine since Palpatine has not killed his master yet. Very accurate

Hey man, my honest opinion. we all like the animations. However the reason we initially fell in love with your channel, was you and how you describe in detail the events, and thus bring the world to life! animations rob this aspect of you, from us.

Seeing a lot of "Dont understand". Here is my translation :) Plagueis: "The Dark Side is the embodiment of Chaos, Chaos is change. Change is the natural will of the force. The Jedi misuse the force by trying to keep the force in balance". Hope this helps!

Goddamn plagueis voice is amazing, not for nothing sheev waited him to get drunk and semi asleep to take on him, if plagueis really sounded like that he'd be twice scarier than Vader. I've watched this more than tenfold in two days, I love how this ties lots of stuff together, explains how sidious became so twisted in figure after mace reflected his lightning, explains how palpatine could have a son and a granddaughter, also serves as a explanation of why Darth Vader was turned to the light by Luke, he wasn't a true Sith, he didn't embrace the cybernetic towering shadowy figure he became, he was actually willing to be cured of the illness. Amazing storytelling through such a relatively small piece. I definitely love how apparently to become a master of the dark side, one must be of singular eloquence, it's so beautifully written and still implies sense of dread. Everything related to the ancient Sith Lords are amazing. Plagueis was really wise.

Theory I’m not sure if you know this already but I have a theory. In revenge of the sith before windu approached palpatine, windu tells a akin to wait in the council chambers now this could be because when windu comes back after arresting palps windu was going to gran anakin the rank of Jedi master let me know what you think about this May The Force Be With You

So I have an idea for a video you could do. Whenever I bring it up, people think I'm talking nonsense but I've seen Phantom Menace enough times to pretty damn sure that I'm right. Essentially, Qui-Gon Jinn uses a Jedi Mind Trick on Boss Nass - and fails. Some people pick up on Qui-Gon doing the mind trick and because he ultimately gets what he asked for they think he succeeded but actually, he failed. When he says "then speed us on our way" he's using a Mind Trick. Boss Nass says "Wesa gonna speed yous away..." which makes Qui Gon think his Mind Trick is working and then he follows up with "we could use a transport...?" and of course Boss Nass responds that he'll give them a Bongo and that "the fastest way to the Naboo is through the planet core." Qui-Gon thinks his mind trick has worked. Then we find out from Jar Jar that Nass is setting the Jedi up, expecting them to get lost or eaten. Now you'd think that at this point Qui-Gon would realise that his mind tricks weren't working and that Nass was just going along with what he was saying to get rid of him but wasn't actually being affected but then Qui-Gon goes and tries another Mind Trick and it's another failure. If you watch closely, Neeson is using the waving hand gestures associated with mind tricks as he speaks. Qui-Gon asks what's going to happen to Jar Jar and is told Jar Jar will be punished. Now watch what Qui Gon does and listen to the tone of his voice. He says the line "Your gods DEMAND his life belongs to me now." As he says "demand" he waves his hand and he puts particular emphasis on the word. He's attempting another mind trick. He ultimately gets what he wants so he thinks his mind trick worked but when you listen to Nass's response, he doesn't respond with "my gods demand his life belongs to you..." or anything similiar, he instead asks Jar Jar if what Qui-Gon said was true. The mind trick doesn't affect him, he just takes Qui-Gon's words at face value with no Force influence being applied and asks Jar Jar if what Qui-Gon is saying is the truth. Of course, later on, Qui-Gon tries a mind trick on Watto and we all know how that goes. So basically, Qui-Gon Jinn sucks at mind tricks. And also, Boss Nass is far more strong-willed than Qui-Gon expected or realised. On a somewhat related note, there's a moment in the Bongo that a lot of people miss where Qui-Gon does the Jedi equivalent of a Vulcan neck pinch on Jar Jar. Jar Jar is going crazy, panicking, and Qui-Gon tells him to relax, putting his hand somewhere close to Jar Jar's neck and shoulder. If you watch Jar Jar, he actually goes unconscious because of this. Obi-Wan then says "You overdid it." He's not talking to Jar Jar, he's talking to his master, telling him that he went too far, the assumption being that Qui-Gon was trying to use the Force to calm Jar Jar but used too much power and knocked him out. A few moments later, Jar Jar wakes up confused. Star Wars fans talk all the time about Qui-Gon being a great Jedi and I'm not saying he wasn't but in the one movie he was in he was arrogant and reckless, he misused his powers and he was dismissive of other opinions and even downright rude a couple of times. He was basically full of himself.

About Darth Maul Palpatine: We can’t continue to risk exposure. Plagueis: You have more to say about this. Palpatine: Master. Would you consider turning someone in the Sith Arts? To execute whatever missions are required? Plagueis: Another peerless? In defiance of our partnership? Palpatine: Not an apprentice. Not someone who could ever aspire to become a true Sith Lord. But someone skilled in stealth and combat. Who could be eliminated when no longer needed. Plagueis: You already have someone in mind. Palpatine: You instructed me to keep an eye out for beings who might prove helpful. I’ve found such a one on Dathomir not a year ago. A male Dathomiri Zabrak infant. Plagueis: Many Zabrak demonstrate strength in the Force. By nature, it would seem. Palpatine: This infant does. The mother birthed two and stopped to save one from the clutches of the Nightsisters. Especially from one known as Talzen. Plagueis: You purchased him. Palpatine: Accepted him. Plagueis: Where is he? *to be continued* (if @Star Wars Theory continues the Plagueis animations)
