The mystery surrounding Supreme Leader Snoke’s identity continues following his appearance in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” An old theory suggests that he knows the way of The Force and the book accompaniment for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” confirms this.

Fans have since been intrigued about Supreme Leader Snoke since he first appeared in Episode VII, “The Force Awakens.” The film did not delve into his background or his history, but it is clear that he is a powerful character. Kylo Ren and General Hux feared him and did all his commands, including the attack on the rebel warriors.

Clearly, Snoke is a force to be reckoned with. This is why his identity continues to intrigue “Star Wars” fans and spur countless of theories, including the possibility that he could be a child of The Force.

Snoke was born through the Force

An old theory claims that Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) is similar to Anakin Skywalker. They are both born out of The Force, but Snoke is the product of a failed attempt at the creation of human life. This would explain why he has a hideous face. Darth Plagueis attempted to create him, but The Force was against it. Snoke lived in hiding after Palpatine sensed his presence in the Unknown Regions and attempted to kill him. The Sith reportedly did not want a rival for Anakin.

Snoke's existence is a secret

Now, only General Leia and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) supposedly know that Snoke exists. They made an agreement never to talk about him. This is why he is named as such since Snoke is an acronym. It supposedly stands for “A Sith No One Knew Existed.” This would explain why in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Leia looked so surprised when she learned that the First Order has a Supreme Leader named Snoke.

Interestingly, this theory jives with the description of Supreme Leader Snoke in the latest edition of “Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need To Know.” According to Flickering Myth, the book revealed that Snoke has impressive powers of The Force. He is a master of telepathy, telekinesis and of force throws and chokes.

Snoke’s return in ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

Film director Rian Johnson said that the sequel will not delve into Snoke’s background. However, fans should still learn a few more things about the Supreme Leader. They will know by December whether Snoke is really a child of The Force or not. “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will open in theaters on Dec. 15, 2017.
