I asked and you answered! 75% of people seem to think, as I do, that Supreme Leader Snoke is Darth Plagueis The Wise. Read on for more...
For a while now I've believed that Supreme Leader Snoke may very well be Darth Plagueis The Wise, the former Sith Lord and master to Palpatine/Darth Sidious. So I put a poll on Twitter to ask if you guys felt that he was. 75% of people said they felt he is Plagueis. See the poll below.
For those of you who don't know who Darth Plagueis is then you should check out Star Wars Episode III Revenge Of The Sith or just watch the scene below, where Palpatine tells Anakin about the late Sith Lord. It is implied that Plagueis was Palpatine's master and had been experimenting with the Force. I believe Plagueis created Anakin whilst experimenting with these abilities and so Plagueis is pretty much responsible for the Skywalker line.
I'm thinking that if Plagueis was learning how to cheat death when Palpatine/Sidious killed him in his sleep, then he may have found a way back in some form. There have been theories that Snoke is a zombie like creature, and even Andy Serkis has said Snoke is damaged.
Take a look at that image above. See how Plagueis is looking over Palpatine? Now consider what Andy Serkis said about his looming over General Hux and Kylo Ren on set. I'm sure he isn't a giant monster, but is probably a hologram like The Emperor was in Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. It all makes sense to me, but we will know for sure next week. That's right, next week!
Oh and another thing. Even though we've never seen Plagueis onscreen, in the expanded stories he apparently wields a staff. Some people suspect that the staff we see Rey use in The Force Awakens could be Plagueis' staff. Only time will tell.
Do you think Snoke is in fact Plagueis? Is that Plagueis' staff we see Rey using? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Thank you for reading/watching,
