Warning: this article contains potential spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
The good folks at Making Star Wars have always kept us in the loop regarding anything Star Wars, and their latest report is no different. Their newest reveal involves potential details regarding Snoke’s outfit, what his guards look like, and Kylo Ren’s ship.
In The Force Awakens, Snoke was only seen wearing a black robe during his hologram projection. He’s spicing things up in The Last Jedi, as he’ll be seen wearing a golden silky robe with an undisclosed pattern on it. Beyond that, he’ll be wearing golden “jester shoes.” It’s said that both the robe and shoes have a red lining on it.
On his left hand, Snoke will be seen wearing a ring that is described to be the size of a “Ring Pop.” The stone inside the ring is said to be black and could potentially be a black Kyber Crystal. Interestingly, Snoke’s hands are decrepit and his pinky is shriveling inwards. Regardless, he seems to be very interested in wearing this ring.
If his golden aesthetic and ring imply anything, it’s that Snoke is a very materialistic individual. While details surrounding his throne room are scarce, it’s said to be very “opulent,” with a white marble and gold trim. Snoke will stay on his Mega Destroyer for most of the film. Supposedly the largest ship we’ve ever seen in the franchise, it’s implied that his palace and throne room are inside the ship, though that’s not clear.
Regarding Snoke’s guards, they’ve been dubbed “Praetorian Guards” but take this name with a grain of salt. Reminiscent of the Royal Guards that Emperor Palpatine employed, they’re said to have red glossy armor, shell plating, and matte red cloth elements for their capes and whatnot. Their helmets are all supposedly different, evoking a medieval helmet aesthetic, but they all have solid red face shields with no visors. Each guard has their own distinctive weapon, which include but are not limited to, a staff with two blades at each end, nunchucks, a sword, and throwing blades and knives. These guards are said to protect him and it’s rumored that they’ll have an action sequence in the film.
Moving on to Kylo Ren, he won’t be wearing his helmet as much as he did in The Force Awakens. His TIE ship is said to have pointy wings like the TIE Interceptor, but with a pill-shaped body. The thrusters in the back reportedly glow blue, akin to the Falcon. The ship was custom built to his specifications and we will likely see Kylo fly from the Mega Destroyer in his ship.
Directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, and newcomers to the franchise Benicio del Toro and Laura Dern.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits cinemas on December 15, 2017.

‘Star Wars’: Just Who Could Be ‘The Last Jedi’?
Last month, Disney and Lucasfilm officially announced the title for the next “Skywalker Saga” Star Wars film. Episode VIII will be titled The Last Jedi. As soon as the announcement came, fans were both excited, and very interested. That’s a “cool” title, yet at the same time very vague. Even stars of the film, Mark Hamil and Daisy Ridley have been tight-lipped about what that could mean. The only response has been Hamil saying that it has a very “samurai” and “minimalist” vibe to it. Ridley only shared a meme on Facebook related to the announcement of the title.
So what does it mean? One theory is that for the new films, the titles will literally spell out a sentence summarizing the trilogy, which is interesting. The first film The Force Awakens, the next one The Last Jedi, the third…. so it could say that “The Force Awakens The Last Jedi (insert Episode 9 title).”
But we are curious as to who the last Jedi in Episode VIII could be. Of course, there are obvious answers, since the field of Jedi in the new trilogy is so limited. It’s not like the prequel trilogy where there were hundreds if not thousands of Jedi to pick and choose from.
So let’s take a look as see just who the Last Jedi could actually be. Click next to see who our choices are.
