There are a lot of questions that fans are waiting to be answered in the coming "Star Wars: Episode 8 - The Last Jedi." The biggest of them all is who is the Supreme Leader Snoke?
There are a lot of fan-made theories surrounding the identity of the Supreme Leader Snoke in "Star Wars: Episode 8 - The Last Jedi." In the book trilogy titled "Aftermath" by Chuck Wendig, Gallius Rax is featured as the machiavellian Imperial admiral, according to Digital Spy.
He was born in Jakku and the apprentice of the future Emperor, Sheev Palpatine. In the first two installments of the book, he uses the codename Operator opposing the New Republic and the last Empire leadership to take over the Imperial forces. However, it is not yet revealed if this will be seen in "Star Wars: Episode 8 - The Last Jedi" as the trilogy is set after it happens.
Rax is last seen fixing his group and from here, the Snoke's First Order will rise from the ashes of the Empire. In "Star Wars: Episode 8 - The Last Jedi," his relationship with Palpatine has a connection with Snoke's awareness about the Force.
Moreover, the known Star Wars theorist Mike Zeroh claimed that there is a connection between Snoke, the Knights of Ren and Palpatine that might be revealed in "Star Wars: Episode 8 - The Last Jedi." In his YouTube video, he introduced Yupe Tashu, who is one of the leaders of the Acolytes of the Beyond, Daily Express reported.
After the deaths of Vader and Palpatine, the Acolytes gather Sith relics and take control of keeping the Sith Lord's legacy alive. Tashu then sacrificed himself in the Battle of Jakku thinking that it would bring back Palpatine alive that may be featured in "Star Wars: Episode 8 - The Last Jedi."
"It is very much possible that Yupe's death creates a big open slot for whoever Supreme Leader Snoke was back then," Zeroh said. "To take over as the leader of the Acolytes and turn [them] into the Knights of Ren - eventually converting Ben Solo to Kylo Ren, to be their ultimate master." "Star Wars: Episode 8 - The Last Knight" is set to be released on Dec. 15, 2017.
