According to Andy Serkis, Snoke is likely the most powerful villain in the Star Wars universe.
In a quote from an unidentifiable magazine, which was found via Reddit, Serkis claims that Snoke is more powerful than Darth Vader and the Emperor.
His response to the question was as follows:
“Oh, without question. He has limitless resources, let’s put it that way.”
Serkis’ answer is vague at best but considering that the shroud surrounding Snoke will be unveiled soon, we’ll know for sure how powerful he is. The definition of power is vague as well, considering Serkis also stated that Snoke has limitless resources. Rumors have suggested that Snoke is quite affluent and is involved with a lot of the business that happens at Canto Bight, a casino in the Star Wars universe, which Finn and Rose will eventually visit in the film.
Serkis also described how Snoke’s physical appearance doesn’t match up with his power:
“There’s a frailty and a damage to Snoke. His face is cleaved in, scars across his mouth, contorted body. But without giving too much away, he is strong. He is the dark end of the Force. He’s the leader of the First Order, but he has his own agenda. He’s a cruel manipulator.”
Rumors have suggested that Snoke’s story is one that’s quite tragic, which leads him down a dark path to gain control of the galaxy. He appears to be something more than a Sith lord, something that is more than just pure evil.
Time will tell how powerful Snoke really is when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theatres on December 15th.

5 Ways ‘The Last Jedi’ Links To Greater ‘Star Wars’ Canon
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is right around the corner. The film is the next chapter in the ongoing Skywalker saga. It’s also unique in the Star Wars films as it is the first one to be an immediate sequel to its predecessor. But that does not mean there won’t be plenty of Easter eggs for fans of the greater Star Wars canon to pick up on and enjoy.
One of the biggest criticisms about the previous Star Wars canon, now dubbed Legends, is that ancillary material never connected. Since Disney has taken over and the establishment of the Star Wars Story Group, that has all changed. The modus operandi has been to have everything connect but not in an intrusive way– one that feels more natural to reward the more hardcore fans as well as to intrigue new fans.
