Now that Star Wars: The Last Jedi has lastly premiered in theaters, it’s secure to say that the Star Wars franchise is at present in a significantly totally different place than it was on the finish of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The movie raises a ton of questions that we did not count on to have, and it tells us that a lot of our theories about Snoke’s identity didn’t matter almost as a lot as we had assumed — primarily as a result of he’s now in two separate items on the ground. We’re left questioning fairly a bit about his origins, however now it appears that evidently we have now affirmation of one other apprentice earlier than his time with Kylo Ren.
In a newly launched situation of the Final Jedi Visible Companion Journal (by way of Reddit), it has been noticed portion of Supreme Chief Snoke’s origin not talked about within the film has lastly come to mild. Particularly, it has been established that “Snoke has educated Kylo Ren and no less than one different apprentice,” thus implying one other product of his teachings someplace on the market within the galaxy. The revelation would not go a lot additional than that, nevertheless it does tell us that his affect unfold to extra than simply Ben Solo.
Constructing off of this growth, we should wait and see whether it is expanded on in Star Wars: Episode IX. As talked about earlier, Supreme Chief Snoke left the world of Star Wars as abruptly as he ended, which implies a lot of his backstory stays on the desk and prepared for exploration. With one-third of the present Star Wars trilogy left for J.J. Abrams to come back to, we may very effectively study Snoke’s different apprentice in 2019, and be taught that it is another person on the market within the galaxy. The probabilities are seemingly limitless, starting from Rey (maybe she simply cannot keep in mind?) to Emperor Palpatine to Darkish Plagueis.
Then once more, there’s at all times the chance that we could by no means really be taught something about Supreme Chief Snoke’s different apprentice, and that this revelation is simply there as a chunk of backstory to serve the larger Star Wars mythology. In spite of everything, there are many points of the Star Wars lore that do not get talked about within the movies (if you understand something about the Expanded Universe, you seemingly already know that), so this might simply function a enjoyable factoid to assist flesh out the world.
