Star Wars fan artist Master, Darren Tibbles, aka @daztibbles, has released his latest stylized animated Star Wars short, and it focuses on Emperor Palpatine’s Sith tendencies.

In particular, it zeroes in on a quote of Sheev’s in which he explains his approach to being the Emperor of the galaxy, albeit with some Sith philosophies behind it. The quote is:

“All who gain power are afraid to to lose it”

Palpatine

The short in turn proposes and alternate Star Wars universe in which Luke Skywalker embraces the Dark Side and uses his power to garner his own army of Imperial forces to take down Palpatine. Palpatine fears his new challenger greatly, so he begins to emanate lightning from his entire body until it completely takes over the Death Star.

It’s a damn good short and fun concept to see play out, plus the visual style is so boss that the plot could’ve just been Palpatine sitting on his throne and I still would’ve loved it. Give it a watch below.
