Please do not share the details of this article openly on social media and spoil Star Wars: The Last Jedi for those that want to remain spoiler-free. These are very general spoilers but let’s respect other fans’ wishes and not spoil those that do not appreciate advanced information. Do not repost this image on your Twitter or Instagram and force someone to see it that does not want to. Be cool! Or else Supreme Leader Spoke will find you.
This update is a little weird if not ridiculous. I felt like doing it after talking to a friend that had a Snoke theory I politely shut down based on eye color. The thing about Snoke when I saw him last was that he has blue eyes. He has striking blue eyes. Ironically, his eyes are the same color as the “Your Snoke Theory Sucks” stickers another friend pointed out to me. While I think Snoke is a new character with an original backstory we’ve yet to learn, if you want to play the game he’s someone we’ve known before, make sure he’s seven feet tall with striking blue eyes and not Chewbacca.
The last time I saw Snoke from The Last Jedi I was really intrigued by his eyes. While it does look like he has conjunctivitis around his eyes, if you look closely at them you can see he has eye lashes in The Last Jedi. You can see it in The Force Awakens but its way more apparent when he’s not a hologram. He has fine eyebrows you can barely see and their white and blondish in tone making me think he might have had blond hair and blue eyes when he was young. The other thing I think that is kind of overlooked and even maybe exaggerated more in The Last Jedi are the two huge gaping holes in his throat which are wonderfully disgusting.
Snoke in color
The other thing I think might not really be realized as much as you’d think, is that his skin color is actually fairly pink and not as white and washed out as Palpatine. He has human colored flesh with age spots. I noticed that when people draw him he has skin like San Hill, for instance. He’s way pinker compared to say The Inquisitor from Star Wars Rebels even. The image above is pretty misleading to how human he actually looks. His skin is pale and peachy. This elderly person’s hand is sort of a better color to imagine him in than say that of The Emperor as I said.
I also wanted to clarify a little on his golden robe. While the inside is red and pretty fancy, the golden exterior of the robe is a curious pattern. It is almost like golden corduroy lines that run straight up and down the garment. I’m no expert in fabrics so its hard to describe. But imagine golden corduroy that’s very shiny. I know I’ve seen the material on throw pillows and the like.
Draw me like one of your Snoke girls
I hope this esoteric article was interesting to some of you. I think his eyes being so blue sets him far apart from the Sith. There is nothing supernatural about his eyes. There is nothing that says he wields supernatural powers. I’m not saying he’s not supernatural but his eyes are very normal. If you get rid of his wounds he looks fairly human. But he has really long arms with really arthritic looking hands with a pinky that curls inward. He’s a trip and he’s our Snoke!
I’ve teamed up with artist Jared Jones of “Podcast 2187 “to offer a really accurate look at Supreme Leader Snoke in The Last Jedi. This look at Snoke’s bust in The Last Jedi shows how much color Snoke actually has in the film:
So there you have it. If you ever wondered why the LEGO mini figure was a little flesh toned, that’s why. The depiction above doesn’t show the fine hairs that make up his eyebrows and eyelashes but as I said, they’re white and blond in color but that’s really if you look super close at his face.
