The 'Lighter' Side Of The Force
So Snoke is Plagueis..
How about as proof that it is not the Emperor in the bacta tank, that there is about 18 years between movies III and IV?
He clearly states that rogue one was set weeks before "a new hope" which is why he says he doesn't believe it's the emperor in the tank.
Honestly I don't see that as the emperor if front of the tank. Shoulders are too broad and I certainly don't see him kneeling
Its possible, there is evidence that shows that Palpatines master, Darth Plageuas the wise was in fact still alive during the prequel trilogy as stated in revenge of the sith. Palpatine told Anakin the sith legend about a sith lord that had the power to stop death. That and how well order 66 along with the rise of the empire went about, something of that magnatude hundreds, if not thousands of years to come up with, if one would compare the size of republican space. Order 66 definetly had more than one conspirater, Palpatine in the forfront and Plageus in the shadows. So with that said, it wouldnt be hard to imagin Plageus was around for 10,000 years or more in the early days of the old republuc during the Jedi/Sith wars. If Snoke is Plagues, there is a good chance that he might be a reminent of the ancient Sith Empire, that was run by a red skinned dark side race called the Sith. Anakin may have destroyed the sith order, but there is a posability that the Sith species still exsists in some way or form.
What if snoke is the grand inquisitor from Star Wars Rebels?SPOILERS IF YOU HAVENT SEEN THE TV SHOW*******In the tv show Star Wars rebels, there is an episode where the grand inquisitor is fighting Kanen on a star destroyer. Kanen gets the best of him and the grand inquisitor falls into a fire pit( the reactor of the ship just blew up and there's fire everywhere). My theory is that the grand inquisitor some how survived that fall and the fire, and took the back seat to watch the empire rise and fall. The injuries that we saw from snoke in The Force Awakens, would have been when he fell into the fire on the star destroyer. They also look very similar to each other. Also, is it weird that we never learned the grand inquisitors name? Maybe for us to not put the pieces together that the grand inquisitor from the tv show, is snoke in the movie. But we didn't learn any of the other inquisitors names either, so probably not. Let me know what you guys think.
I like that idea!
Seems like the most likely answer, but with Disney leading the charge they will want to create some original bullshit characters then try and connect anything
Snoke simple Ezra form rebs
Snoke looks damn familiar. and he has a deep personal hatred of Han, look at the snarl when he says the name. Those are blast injuries not saber wounds. Tarkin maybe? Boba Fett? I know Im reaching but why does he despise Han so much? That is where we need to look, Han's history who he may have tried to kill or left behind thinking him dead. Whoever he is he hates Han's guts.
