Well, now we can all find out just what really went on during Darth Sidious' time as the young apprentice of this mysterious Sith, with the upcoming UK release of the untold story in STAR WARS: DARTH PLAGUEIS.

STAR WARS: DARTH PLAGUEIS is released on Monday the 20th of Jan in all good book shops (if you can find one that hasn't been demolished to make a Poundland or something. Otherwise just try Amazon).
Thank the maker that George Lucas continues to support the STAR WARS universe and its fans!
