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.
