Star Wars is a franchise that has a lot of mysteries surrounding it. We don’t really understand the origins of our heroine, Rey; we don’t know why Luke Skywalker ran off; we don’t know what Kylo Ren’s relationship is with the trilogy big bad Supreme Leader Snoke; and we don’t know much about Supreme Leader Snoke in general. We don’t know his motives, his past, whether or not he’s a Sith, or even his overall look.
In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we saw him in hologram form, and though while he filled the entire screen with his 20-foot-tall projection, it was mostly devoid of color, and had fewer details than hardcore fans would have enjoyed. While Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has already stated that we won’t be treated to the ins and outs of everything Snoke, we know that the film will feature a decent amount more of him than we’ve had in the past. In anticipation of that, we’re actually seeing a good number of Force Friday II toys that show his fully robed body.
Check them out below:
Of course, those are the more stylized looks of Snoke. If you want something that’s probably a bit more in line with what he’ll look like in the film, I recommend you check out some of the other images from Coming Soon.
So what do we think of him? Meh. He honestly doesn’t look much different from how we expected. If there is a difference, it’s that he looks a lot weaker brittle than I thought he’d be. He is, after all, the Supreme Leader. That being said, the Emperor in Return of the Jedi wasn’t exactly a picture of health himself, and he still managed to be a worthy foe for Luke Skywalker (though it was a Luke Skywalker who refused to fight back). But will this be the case for Snoke? It would be a more interesting take if at this point, he was wakened to the point of being unable to defend himself. That robe certainly lends itself to that look.
What do you think of Snoke’s look? Are you grossed out by his face still? Let us know your thoughts down below!
