Star Wars Last Jedi: Why Supreme Leader Snoke could have a LIGHTSABER

Various alleged leaks and unfounded rumours have suggested over recent months that we could see Snoke in combat in The Last Jedi, although a number of whispers have also pointed towards him staying relatively enigmatic.

Star Wars expert Mike Zeroh speculated that the villain’s obsession with wealth could point towards him indeed being possession of the iconic weapon.

He pointed to rumours suggesting Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) will target Snoke, while Rey (Daisy Ridley) focusses on Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

“I’m assuming that’s how we transition to Star Wars Episode 9, where perhaps Luke Skywalker finds Snoke, confronts him and they engage in a lightsaber duel,” Zero suggested.

“It leads me to believe that Snoke will have his very own lightsaber at some point in the sequel trilogy, maybe even in this film.

“We know is a wealthy individual, this is why he has the ring with a black kyber crystal. He has a golden throne… he has a lot of stuff that is very much valuable and he is obsessed with wealth.

“The fact that he is obsessed with wealth tells me he should at least have a lightsaber in this film or in Star Wars Episode 9.”

Snoke’s identity has also been the subject of much discussion, but director Rian Johnson has hinted that we won’t find out much more about his backstory in The Last Jedi.

Vanity Fair contributor David Kamp said in a Reddit AMA: “I asked Rian about Snoke—Who/what is he?—and Rian was fairly up front in saying that Snoke is not a character he particularly gets into in TLJ. Hmmm.”

We’ll see just how much Snoke will appear when the film is released at the end of the year.

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is out on December 15.
