Characters

Snoke, a key character from the Star Wars sequel trilogy, is a powerful figure in the Dark Side of The Force. First introduced in "The Force Awakens" (2015), he serves as the Supreme Leader of the First Order, a military dictatorship intent on conquering the galaxy. Over the course of the trilogy, Snoke plays a crucial role as the master of Kylo Ren, training him in the ways of the Dark Side.

Snoke is an extremely mysterious character whose origins have fueled many theories among fans. He is characterized by his vast knowledge of Force lore, extraordinary manipulation, and cunning tactics. Despite his physical frailty and extreme disfigurement, Snoke is immensely powerful and can use the Force to command obedience and loyalty from his subordinates.

Throughout the sequel trilogy, Snoke's primary aim is to destroy Luke Skywalker, the Last Jedi, and the Resistance. This leads him to manipulate Ben Solo, turning him into Kylo Ren, and using him as a tool to accomplish his objectives. However, his plans take an unexpected turn when Kylo Ren, influenced by Rey, betrays and kills him in "The Last Jedi" (2017).

The character of Snoke was created by J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan for "The Force Awakens". However, much of his backstory remained unanswered in the movie. It is only in "The Rise of Skywalker" (2019), the final film of the trilogy, that Snoke's origins and purpose were fully revealed. In the movie, it was unveiled that Snoke was actually a creation of Emperor Palpatine, engineered to seduce Kylo Ren to the Dark Side and resurrect the Sith order.

The character of Snoke was visually impressive and brought to life by digital effects. His scarred and deformed appearance was designed to illustrate his deep connection with the Dark Side of the Force. Voiced by Andy Serkis, Snoke's character also adds a layer of mystery and dread to the sequel trilogy, leaving a lasting impact on the Star Wars universe.
