STAR WARS 8 The Last Jedi set photo leak suggests Supreme Leader Snoke is Darth Plagueis, according to a Star Wars theorist.
Since the first picture of Snoke was released prior to release of Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Star Wars fans have been wondering if he is in fact Darth Plagueis.
The Sith Lord hasn’t appeared in any of the films, but was introduces in the novels as Darth Sidious’ mentor.
Now Star Wars theorist Mike Zeroh has brought up an old set photo leak featuring Andy Serkis in his mo-cap suit as Snoke.
In his new video, Zeroh points out how one specific feature in the video suggests Snoke is in fact Darth Plagueis or at least based on him.
He says: “The main thing of interest [in the picture] is the object he is holding in his left hand…it appears to be a staff of some sort.
“There is a Plagueis figure that appears to hold a staff similar to what Andy is holding.
“Could Lucasfilm and Disney be basing Snoke off of the sinister character Darth Plagueis?
“I would say this would be the more realistic route…essentially Snoke would be Plagueis, just not by name.”[H/T] Express
