‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ – Snoke Will Remain A Mystery According To Rian Johnson

Unlike the two previous trilogies, the current Star War trilogy has the rise of a hero and a villain. Rey will team up with Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren will continue to serve Supreme Leader Snoke.

The director of ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Rian Johnson, talked about how to keep Snoke this powerful unknown force, but fans aren’t going to like it.

“We got the whole story of Palpatine’s rise to power in the prequels, but in the original films he’s exactly what he needs to be, which is just ‘The Emperor.’ He’s a dark force: the scary thing behind the thing. That was entirely how I approached Snoke. I wasn’t interested in explaining where he came from or telling his history, except where it serves this story,” said Johnson to Empire.

Johnson’s response means we are not going to know anything new by the end of ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi.’ The mystery will continue into Episode IX. Johnson’s choice makes filmmaking sense to build tension and keep the questions building, but we are in a now society and can’t wait.
