Crimson Dawn

No, we’re not talking about the crime unit from Solo, though we’ll get to that later.

If Star Wars fans remember Darth Sidious’ red empirical guards, then viewers will also remember being confused about the unique uniforms and their meaning. Mike Richardson’s Star Wars: Crimson Empire explains not only the meaning of the bright red uniforms but hones in on a specific, former guard who tries to make his way through the world after the fall of the Empire. A show featuring a deep dive into the heart of one of the most deadly assassin forces is a show we’d pay to watch.

Through the former crimson guard Kirk Kanos, viewers would be able to see a much more rounded look into how the Emperor’s personal bodyguards functioned. These guards were chosen from the most skilled stormtroopers and were eventually hunted down and exterminated after the fall of the Empire, not only because of their deep-seated loyalty to Darth Sidious, but also because of the red guards’ unmatched lethal skills. They may have even given the Mandalorian a run for his money.

Kanos was also one of the deadliest assassins among the red guards they could be and a show focused on him would be an epic opportunity for some truly thrilling storytelling. For playing such trivial background characters for so long, it’s overdue for these guards to get their time in the crimson dawn spotlight and for viewers to learn why Sidious chose to surround himself with such vibrant and silent individuals in the Star Wars stories we want to see on Disney Plus.
