The rumor mill is now suggesting that Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) is holding a big secret in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” The identity of the First Order and the Knights of Ren’s leader remain a mystery; thus there are a lot of assumptions and theories surrounding his character.

It has been said that the sequel trilogy’s main antagonist might be the ancient Jedi and the one Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) has been looking for. In fact, a Reddit user named AnakinKardashian suggested that the Supreme Leader might be the last Jedi.

Snoke’s alleged connection to the ancient history

In “Star Wars: A New Hope,” Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness) said that the Jedi Knights were the “guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic” for more than 1,000 generations.

However, it is now a big question what happened before that. According to Inverse, the recent “Star Wars” movies are all referring to the old ways of the Force and the early Jedi. In fact, it can be evidently seen in Luke Skywalker’s journey to track down the first Jedi Temple and Kylo Ren’s (Adam Driver) ancient lightsaber.

Also, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” hinted that Supreme Leader Snoke is already very old while the Guardians of the Whills and its age-old order have been introduced in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” Lastly, in Timothy Zahn’s “Aftermath” trilogy, Palpatine also felt that there is a threatening force in the galaxy even before.

All of these examples are just a reference to the history of the “Star Wars” galaxy that might be all connected to Supreme Leader Snoke. Hence, a lot assumed that he is actually the last Jedi.

The real reason of Luke to end the Jedi

Moreover, there is another assumption that General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) knows Supreme Leader Snoke’s real identity.

The theory suggested that the Force-sensitive humanoid alien has the ability to jump bodies, Daily Express reported. In fact, in order to prove her claim, the princess is going to send Finn (John Boyega) to find his tomb.

As the leaks hint that the antagonist has been around since the prehistoric of the Force, he is believed to be the remaining and original user of the different energy.

And with this claim, this must be the reason why Luke Skywalker wants the Jedi to end in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

Unfortunately, the upcoming movie’s director Rian Johnson already said that the origin of Supreme Leader Snoke is yet to be revealed. Hence, the truth about his real identity will remain a mystery.
