One of the lingering mysteries of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the identity of Supreme Leader Snoke, the power behind both the First Order and Kylo Ren. While we’re hoping to get more answers about Snoke in the upcoming sequel, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it seems that some clues have already been dropped thanks to Hollywood’s most reliable rumor source: LEGO! That’s right, everyone’s favorite interconnecting bricks have once again teased the future of the Star Wars saga, and today’s Nerdist News is gonna tell you what it means for Snoke!There are some potentialÂ spoilers ahead for The Last Jedi. Given how quickly the LEGO images have been pulled, we’re thinking that they’re pretty accurate. Either way, you’ve been warned!Join host, and TerÃ¤s KÃ¤siÂ champion, Jessica Chobot, as she picks up the threads from Making Star WarsÂ to describe Snoke’s new look. We may not be able to use the leaked LEGO pictures, but we’ve got some custom Snoke art of our own that shows off his new look. Unlike his brief appearance in the previous film, it appears that Snoke is getting his golden robes on and wearing a black ring that may hold a Kyber crystal.
It should be noted that the LEGO box art actually does try to hide a spoiler: the identity of the person making contact with Snoke via the hologram-facetime device. If it was simply Kylo Ren reporting in to his master then it wouldn’t be much of a surprise, would it? So it has to be someone unexpected, and that’s just gonna add more fuel to the “Luke Skywalker has gone to the dark side” conspiracy theorists.
The new LEGO pics also introduced BB-9E, a First Order droid that may be the evil version of BB-8. But what if it actually is BB-8 on an undercover mission inside Snoke’s Mega Star Destroyer? Additionally, the new LEGO pics also offer up some new details about the Resistance ships that were glimpsed in the first trailer.What do you think about the latest details from The Last Jedi?
