    Watched RotJ last night and when I saw the Emperor I had a thought about his dark side eyes, and how Maul had them, Anakin/Vader ended up with them. Dooku was the only one that didn't. My questions to discuss;

    1. Will we see "darkside eyes" in EPVII?
    2. Will the "darkside eyes" be expanded upon during the ST?
    3. Were the "darkside eyes" just a red herring/effect that looked good, and that's that for them?

    I'm asking because I seem to remember a fair bit of RotS promotion using the Anakin "darkside eyes", and alot of discussion, but nothing went any further. (In much the same way as Syfo-Dias from AotC - but that's another subject ;)).

    Anyways, hope this piques someone's interest and we get some interesting theories.

    1) Maybe.
    2) I doubt it. I don't think Disney is interested in expanding anything other than their profit margin. It's unlikely in my mind that they'd spend screen time expanding on some idiosyncrasy from past films.
    3) That's what seems most likely to me. They just looked cool. They gave a visual representation as to how far a character had fallen into evil ways. I don't think there's anything deeper than that.

    (4) I'm sorry that I lacked any interesting theories but I just don't think there's much to be read into it but that's just my opinion.

    All theories are interesting from a certain point of view ;)

    Well blue sith eyes would certainly be something new ;) . And hey, if we got Sinatra in EPVII it would be right in line with all those resurrection theories that keep getting suggested.

    I really liked Ventress' portrayal in the micro series. In the Tartakovky series, she had no pupils. Her eyes were completely white.
    That would be scary...

    I agree. The Sifo-Dyas thing was never really explored, despite the fact that one had the feeling that it was actually a really important part of the plot. Reading the Wikipedia entry about Palpatine today, it linked to a page of minor Star Wars characters.

    Sifo-Dyas: Jedi master who ordered the creation of the clone trooper army in the prequel trilogy. There is speculation that this was Sidious's name as a Jedi.
    - from Wikipedia

    I don't believe the above, but it reminded me of how, like the "Sith eyes", it was never explored adequately.

    IF there are Sith in EPVII, then they will have eyes.

    yeah, yeah, yeah, very nice people, but come on, it's a better subject and certainly more relevant than a fair few of the threads around here.

    And please, this thread is not about Sifo-Dyas, I don't think he is relevant at all either. I only used him as a comparison for bait ;)

    That's baseless speculation.

    IMO "Sith eyes" are a by-product of uncontrolled rage. Maul had them because he was a Zabrak. Being alien he probably couldn't control his rage properly and thus his eyes were always in "Sith mode." Also, during the final duel when Qui-Gon meditates Maul is pacing like a caged animal.

    Anakin went into "Sith rage" when he unleashed the Dark Side. However, I believe he was able to keep it in check at other times, like during his fight with Obi-Wan because he was possessed morfe by fear than rage. IMO

    Lastly, if there are Dark Jedi I wouldn't mind seeing some Sith eyes, however remember that as a story element you don't want them to be overused or permanent as sduality and disguise are important (at least were) to a Sith operating "under cover." In other words, permanent Sith eyes gives the bad gus away.
