If the chaotic atmosphere of politics in the last week wasn’t enough to send your manic self into the stratosphere, the latest rounds of leaks for Star Wars: The Last Jedi would’ve. In the world of spoilers, there are long bouts of drought, but when the rains come, the deluge can be fantastic to witness. In yesterday’s downpour of spoilers, one image stood out, and that was a promotional shot of Supreme Leader Snoke.
The brightly-lit mug shot looks to confirm reports from MakingStarWars.net that our leader of The First Order will be a real puppet supported by some CG elements in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This fantastically horrifying creature precipitated another downpour of an entirely different kind, Snoke theories. Within hours, my cascading Twitter feed filled up with images comparing Snoke to Ezra, Chancellor Valorum and even Jedi Master and Chief Librarian Jocasta Nu. A theory which still has left a headache in my eye.
