I’ve been fasicnated by the Imperials for a long time. I’m not a fan, but I when watching a movie or reading a book, I wonder what it took for someone to fight with them.
There were some hints of that in Star Wars Resistance when Jarek Yeager spoke about the Empire. In some places, the Empire gave people work and a way of life. In other places, they completely stole everything, robbing entire planets of all of its resources.
Even so, Imperials had to see what was happening. The deaths. The destruction.
How did they believe in that?
Seeing the perspective from the Imperial side would be interesting — and not to gain sympathy because they wouldn’t get any here — but I also think it would make for a fasicnating parallel of what’s happening in the world now.
Even if those that joined the Empire felt what they were doing was wrong, but joined because they felt like they had no other choice, at what point did they become OK with the violence, the hate?
I think there is a way to tell this story and do it well. Perhaps there’s even a way to show how the Rebels infiltrated the Empire to not make it so dark and bleak.
With all the possibilties Disney+ could bring us, what Star Wars shows would you like to see come to the streaming service?
