Thanks to Lucasfilm we have a new image from Star Wars: The Force Awakens to share with you today and it features a close-up look at Supreme Leader Snoke. There’s been a lot of speculation and talk among fans over who or what Snoke really is.
Thanks to Andy Serkis, there’s one theory you can scratch off your list and that is the fact that Snoke is not a Sith Lord. We know that he is strong in the ways of The Force, but that doesn’t mean he’s a Sith Lord.
When talking about the character in an interview with Empire, he said that Snoke is a much darker character than Palpatine:
“Snoke is bloody dark; way darker than Palpatine. He’s riddled with this osteoporosis so his body’s twisted, like a corkscrew. He’s incredibly damaged, so there’s a bizarre vulnerability about him. Beneath that vulnerability, though, is this intense hatred.
He then goes on to confirm that Snoke is not a Sith:
“He’s definitely not a Sith, but he’s certainly at the darker end of the Force. Without giving too much away, that begins to unfold a little in this one.”
If he’s not a Sith, what is he? Could he be an ex-Jedi or something completely different? Sound off in the comments below!
