Why I’d Love to see A Sith Focused Movie

In Star Wars Canon movies we’ve seen a few Sith which is in live-action form in the likes of Darth Vader, Palpatine, Count Dooku, Maul, and even had Darth Bane in the Clone Wars series, and more recently in episode 9 more previous Sith members were made Canon.

In the movies, we’ve had the Sith plotting from within the Jedi and Senate, but we’ve never had anything purely focused on a member of the Sith, where the movie is from the perspective of a Sith member, I honestly believe it’s time that the bad guys shine in a solo movie or so.

There are so many Sith that they could choose to focus a movie on, especially one involving a massive war to make the movie interesting and filled with brutality and duels. There are so many Sith stories that would make for a perfect standalone movie, similar to movies like Rogue One or SOLO.

I would love for a movie to focus on the Hundred-Year Darkness between Dark Jedi, and their armies going up against the Jedi Order between 7000 BBY and 6900 BBY. While eventually, the Dark Jedi would come to lose the battle after 10 decades of fighting, this would make for such a great movie and could even possibly be made into a sequel or even a trilogy movie, the amount of action, the story, characters, character development, and visuals would be off the chart great.

Another story that I’d like to see adapted to a movie would be the Great Sith War, which took place in 3996 BBY which was a galaxy-wide conflict that saw the Sith rise up once more and once again take the fight to the Jedi Order. Another awesome Sith story that would be adapted well to live-action in a movie, it would be like a “Fury” type war movie would be absolutely insane, especially with the technology that Star Wars projects have been utilizing in their latest projects.

Next, I’d have a standalone movie for the origins of the Rule of Two. Obviously, this would be a Darth Bane-centric movie as well as having his apprentice, Darth Zannah in it. This would be a movie focused purely on Darth Bane teaching his apprentice, him creating the Rule of Two as well as having a few battles before ultimately being entombed on Korriban, the movie would heavily be flashback-esque with the Sith nearly going extinct because of internal wars.

Bring in a Legends Sith, Darth Krayt. This would make for such a great story from a unique perspective, yes, we saw Anakin get manipulated and played like a fiddle for him to turn to the Darkside. Darth Krayt was born on Tatooine, similar to Anakin, he went on to be a padawan for a couple of Jedi Master’s one of which being Ki-Adi-Mundi. He was a Jedi who survived the Clone Wars and one of which survived the Great Jedi Purge before later returning to his home planet of Tatooine.

After a brief encounter with Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Krayt found out that it was Anakin Skywalker who aided in the Jedi slayings. He then blamed himself for the Jedi purge and became a Bounty Hunter, while on a mission he trained under the guidance of XoXaan, Krayt then fell to the Darkside and become known as Darth Krayt who went on the rebuilt the Sith Order named, One Sith, he then masked their presence and hid from the Jedi on Korriban.

Darth Krayt then later hid for many years before returning to fight the New Jedi Order, Darth Krayt ruled the galaxy with an iron fist for seven years before the alliance between rightful Emperor Roan Fel and Galactic Alliance Admiral Gar Stazi. Krayt discovered the existence and survival of a Skywalker: Cade Skywalker. Ultimately his life ended when Cade Skywalker flew a ship with Krayt’s body onboard into a raging sun, ironically, he died the same way he was born, under a raging sun.

The possibilities for a Sith standalone movie are endless at this point, with the popularity of the Sith and the Darkside growing, it feels like Disney and Star Wars create movies for these iconic and fan-favorite characters and stories.
