When it comes to the Star Wars saga, it’s clear to moviegoers that the story draws a pretty distinct line between the good guys (the Jedi and the Rebels) and the evil guys (the Empire and the Sith). Of course, that’s a simplification – there are a few groups and characters that fall somewhere between on the spectrum1, like the shadowy Boba Fett, but for the most part, the films spend far more time and effort shaping the look and story of the Jedi as opposed to the Sith. Which is a darn shame, because the glimpses of Sith Lord concept art you’re about to see are so cool that it’ll make you want to push the Jedi aside.
As deep as we’ve gotten into the franchise, it’s borderline criminal that Lucasfilm hasn’t given us a better cinematic look at the pageantry and design of the REALLY evil characters in the Star Wars universe. However, now that new Star Wars movies are getting made, it’s a possibility that we’ll get more Sith in our lives in future episodes or standalone films.
Until then, check out these amazing pieces of Sith Lord concept art, which introduce us to some seriously evil new faces, as well as bring back a few old friends.
