Star Wars: Snoke- New Villain or Darth Plagueis?


Star Wars the Force Awakens will be in stores tomorrow. Some fans might not have watched it yet. Here is some information on the new enemy. Snoke is the leader of the First Order, the resurgent imperial forces. However, Snook may not be this new villain that Disney brought into the story. Is Snook actually a villain long thought to be dead?

This line of thought starts with episode three when the Sith Lord Emperor Palpatine told Anakin Skywalker the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise.

Emperor Palpatine said, “Darth Plagueis was a dark lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise, he could use the force to influence the mediclorians to create life.” “He could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.” “He taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep.”

Did Plagueis really die? How can Disney explain the obvious lightsaber wound to Snook? Was this wound actually caused by a failed assassination attempt?

Snoke is really old as well. If he really is Darth Plagueis, then he could have found a way to stay alive using his advanced healing abilities. Then, he could have hid from Palpatine and perpetuated a myth that he died

Mission to Korriban?

The resistance of The Force Awakens may face a difficult choice for their next mission. There is so much mystery surrounding Snoke and it seems like the fighters of the resistance have no idea who they are fighting. It’s as if this war is being fought with cryptic bits of information.  The only thing anyone seems to know about the first order is their reputation of becoming the dominant military power. There are legends detailing the success of the order but so little is known about the history of it.

It is clear that Luke Skywalker is coming back and will likely become Rey’s master. Skywalker and Rey could embark on a dangerous mission to a dark side world for answers. The force can create visions such as Skywalker’s vision on Dagobah’s cave of visions. Skywalker and Rey could take a risk by allowing the dark side to show them a vision in order to solve the mystery of Snoke’s true identity. There are several worlds to choose from including the Sith world of Korriban and the former Rebel stronghold on Yavin 4.
