Supreme Leader Snoke’s actual size might be made totally clear in the fist trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. New rumors suggest initial footage will depict Snoke hanging out with General Hux IRL, not via hologram, and that he’s at least eight feet tall. But if these rumors are true, where’s Rey?
To be clear, there is no official word from Lucasfilm on when the first trailer for The Last Jedi will surface, nor does the recently “leaked” synopsis have a legitimate source. But, way back when rumors about Luke’s severed hand hit the internet ahead of The Force Awakens, some of it — as crazy as it sounded — turned out to be at least partially true. While YouTuber Mike Zeroh has had some far-out theories about Snoke in the past, this description of the yet-to-be-released teaser trailer for The Last Jedi is a bit more feasible than say, “Snoke is Mace Windu.” Zeroh claims he got his shot-for-shot description of the trailer from FourChan, which obviously makes the accuracy questionable. Plus, the nuggets in the description should make informed fans incredulous.
According to the rumored leak, the first trailer will show an “eight-foot-tall” Snoke chatting with General Hux and mentioning that it’s “time for a family reunion.” This comes after some footage of a “procession of mourners,” presumably attending the much rumored funeral of Han Solo. The trailer also supposedly includes Finn waking up from an Anakin-style sweat-soaked nightmare, Leia feeling disturbances in the Force, and appearances from Captain Phasma, Benicio Del Toro, and Kelly Marie Tran. Zeroh also mentions that a “Jedah-like city” is in the trailer and that Luke says “everything will die with us,” at the end of the trailer.
By his own admission, Zeroh says Rey, Luke, and Kylo Ren are not in the trailer at all, which seems pretty suspicious. Their absence alone might be enough to ignore everything in this “leak.” Considering they are arguably the three most important characters in The Last Jedi, why wouldn’t they be in the trailer? Also, does a procession of mourners for Han Solo seem realistic? Sure, he was a hero to the Rebellion, but it seems more likely there would be a procession of debt collectors trying to get Leia to pay up, rather than weeping citizens of the Republic. Also, Captain Phasma is in the trailer and not Rey? This trailer seems fake.
Back in December 2016, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy indicated fans would probably see footage from The Last Jedi sometime in the “spring,” which could mean next month. For now, fans can continue to spin even crazier Snoke theories than before. Maybe Snoke is George Lucas?
The Last Jedi will hit theaters on December 15, 2017.
