NO SNOKE WITH­OUT FIRE

FIVE SUPREME LEADER THE­O­RIES RE­VEALED

Empire (Australasia) - - On Screen - IL­LUS­TRA­TION BILL MCCONKEY

Darth Plagueis

The king of Snoke the­o­ries. Pal­pa­tine tells Anakin the story of Darth Plagueis at the floaty bub­ble opera thing in Re­venge Of The Sith. Steeped in the Force, Plagueis is a Muun — tall, thin, an­cient-look­ing — not dis­sim­i­lar to Snoke.

Mace Windu

Windu turned to the dark side in a vendetta to kill Anakin Sky­walker’s off­spring, Pal­pa­tine’s Force light­ning al­ter­ing his ap­pear­ance. Why you’d get Andy Serkis rather than Samuel L. Jack­son to per­for­mance-cap­ture that is a mys­tery. AS SEEN ON: In­verse.com

Vaneé

Vaneé is Darth Vader’s cloaked aide who in­forms the Sith Lord of Kren­nic’s ar­rival in Rogue One. A sup­posed acolyte of Vader, the spec­u­la­tion posits that Vaneé vows to ma­nip­u­late Vader’s grand­son — Kylo Ren — to the dark side and ex­plains how Ren is in pos­ses­sion of Vader’s mask.

Anakin’s Fa­ther

You’ll re­mem­ber that Anakin Sky­walker is the prod­uct of an im­mac­u­late con­cep­tion. But one the­ory pre­dicts that Snoke will be re­vealed as Anakin’s ab­sen­tee fa­ther, giv­ing The Last Jedi an Em­pire Strikes Back re­veal.

A New Char­ac­ter

Chuck Wendig’s Force Awak­ens pre­quel novel Af­ter­math sug­gested that post-jedi the last ves­tiges of the Em­pire fled to the Un­known Re­gions. Could they have met a non-hu­manoid called Snoke who shaped them into the First Or­der? Or maybe he’s just Mike Snoke from down­town Cor­us­cant. AS SEEN ON: Screen­rant.com
