    After watching TROS, I believe a live action Palpatine series would be not only justified but potentially amazing.

    It could get into Sith lore , alchemy, Exogal, Plagueis, and perhaps include Vader and/or prior Darths.

    The Sith mythos could expand exponentially with this and even help to set the stage for a Knights of the Old Republic era series or trilogy in the future.

    It also could potentially help us understand aspects of TROS.

    One opening scenario for this series: the ROTJ fall, and what happens afterwards.

    The series could explore various parts of the Palpatine timeline.

    Is anyone else out there interested in such a project being produced via Disney+ in a manner comparable, but perhaps not as long as The Mandalorian?

    Perhaps more as a mini-series (four or more parts).

    I just think this is way too big a story to relegate to comics or novels, which are often amazing in their own rights, but live action can take this storyline to a place only live visual media can reach.

    Yeah, that would be cool. With the Sith Troopers, a lot of legends Sith are now canon, so it would be cool if it dove into their stories a little.

    I would prefer an anthology Sith series rather than one focusing on Palpatine.

    I would love it if the antagonist of such a series was someone like Funny Valentine from Steel Ball Run- someone whose motivations at face value seem completely justified but the actions they take and their willingness to sacrifice others for it makes them villainous.

    There was a young Palpatine storyline Lucas scripted for the canceled Underworld show that was supposedly beyond amazing. It centered on Palpatine’s early life and how he was manipulated by an evil woman. I hope these scripts won’t stay locked up in KK’s desk drawer forever and will see the light of day.

    I am interested in backstories behind villains. This reminds me of the recent Hunger Games announcement, in which a new novel (release this May) will revolve around the backstory of the evil President when he was a younger guy.

    Have you heard of a manga series called Monster? I won't spoil it but if you are interested in psychological thrillers, I cannot recommend this enough. I wish Star Wars had a version of this...

    Interesting concept. Palpatine as Frank Underwood of the Galaxy :).
