Where was Darth Plaguies during the events of The Phantom Menace? Darth Plaguies was the renowned Sith Master to Emperor Palpatine / Darth Sidious prior to his reign and the primary character fans speculate as the true identity of Supreme Leader Snoke from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The masterful Dark Side user never saw screentime during The Phantom Menace, but there's no denying his dealings were evident throughout its plot. YouTuberThe Stupendous Wave has released a new video which aims to explain the events which took place behind the scenes during Episode I, which involved Plaguies.
It is mentioned that it was due to Plaguies and Palpatine's attempt to manipulate the Force and create life which led to the conception of Anakin Skywalker on Tatooine. Apparently Plaguies was aware of the boy's destiny and feared that he would bring an end to the Sith Order. The video also explains how Palpatine and Plaguies were able to cloud the Jedi's vision and mask themselves in their presence without being discovered.
Although the information sourced for this video is from the 2012 novel Darth Plaguies, which has since been rendered non-canon, Star Wars fans are encouraged to watch the video below and subscribe to The Stupendous Wave on YouTube!
