Snoke Got Smoked

Snoke Got Smokes – Live from Planet Earth

Played by character actor and legend Andy Serkis, Supreme leader Snoke is a character from the final trilogy of the Skywalker Saga. When we first see Snoke, he’s a towering hologram with authentic battle damage.

There was a ton of mystery around this character and he had people excited — especially those of us who were hoping for a Darth Jar Jar reveal …

And then… we saw him as a fairly cliché dark side, power-hungry, force user who got taken out before he could really do anything…

At the beginning of The Rise of Skywalker, we find out that he was actually a strand cast of Palpatine — he was created by using his DNA but wasn’t an exact clone. Tomato, tomato.. right? Ultimately he was Palpatine’s puppet and was a way for him to regain some of his power and influence without exposing himself.

Interestingly enough, Snoke didn’t actually know he was a puppet. Despite being created AFTER the Battle of Endor, he had memories of living through the entire Galactic Civil War. This was probably all part of Sidous’ plan to corrupt Ben Solo aka Kylo Ren — as he would have been able to tell if Snoke was full of it.

And since we’re on the topic, Snoke wasn’t a Sith Lord. He was powerful in the Force and an obvious dark side user, but Sith Lord he was not. Those fans who weren’t hoping to turn out to be Darth Jar Jar were eagerly awaiting a reveal for him to actually be Darth Plagueis. Another one of those pale-skinned weird-looking, dark-side types.

There’s actually a lot of interesting stories about and around Snoke, but let’s get back to that whole getting smoked thing…
