Fans have been long waiting to learn the backstory of Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” But, unfortunately, it looks the movie’s eighth episode won’t expand on the origin of the First Order’s leader. For Vanity Fair’s cover story on the 40th anniversary of “Star Wars,” its reporter David Kamp did an AMA on Reddit to answer some fans’ questions. As a result, most of the people’s queries are about the mystery surrounding the Force-sensitive humanoid alien.

Snoke’s story has yet to be revealed

“I asked [director] Rian Johnson about Snoke—Who/what is he?” Kamp narrated.

However, the film’s director admitted that Snoke is not one of the characters he puts focus on “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” It has been known that the “Star Wars” universe has a lot of features, thus information about the Supreme Leader are now emerging on the book version of the series since he got introduced in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

According to Polygon, the main antagonist of the sequel trilogy had a number of trainees long before Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). However, he spent a lot of time in training Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) and Han Solo’s (Harrison Ford) son knowing that he still has a fair amount of good and evil within him.

Theories and assumptions about Snoke

Moreover, Cinema Blend reported Lucasfilm might want to reserve the revelations about Snoke’s story, so it won’t be seen yet in the coming “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” In fact, there are only a few theories and assumptions about the evil villain emerging online.

The only thing known about the Supreme Leader is his magnificent throne room that might be featured in the upcoming movie. His majestic seat will be on board a gigantic ship that will play as the station of all their operations as the Starkiller Base got destroyed. This will be brought to life with the help of the new technology through the combination of digital and practical effects.

Aside from that, there are swirling rumors that Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is going to face Snoke. However, this has yet to be confirmed by Disney and Lucasfilm. With that said, nothing else is known about the role of the movie’s great enemy.

From the looks of it, Johnson puts his sole attention in expanding the story of the human characters in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” It has been said that the backstory of Rey (Daisy Ridley) will finally be revealed here. Also, the film will more focus on Luke, Finn (John Boyega), and Kylo Ren. The film is set to hit the theaters on Dec. 15.
