***Major spoilers throughout, blah, blah, blah... You've been warned*** Okay, seriously, if you haven't seen The Force Awakens by now, what's the matter with you?!

Okay, I love fan theories as much as the next guy, but this one stinks worse that Chewbacca's fur after being in the trash compactor... And if you think otherwise, some has playe a Jedi mind trick on you. Here's proof:

The Scars Don't Match

Yes, they are similar, but they aren't the same. Snoke's are both deep crevices, that are much wider too. In addition, the one on the top of his head is more centered and goes further down his forehead. Abrams pays way more attention to detail than to screw up something like this if it were him.

Snoke Has Arms and Legs

Anakin lost both his arms and legs. Hello, people! Did you forget that?

While Snoke has both hands in The Force Awakens.

Vader Could Not Survive Without His Suit


Kylo Renn Spoke/Prayed to Vader as if He's Gone

When Kylo was pleading for help against the light, he spoke or prayed to his grandfather like he's gone. "Help me finish what you started."

Wouldn't Kylo Ren Have Sensed It?

It's obvious that he knows Snoke personally, wouldn't the force have revealed that to him?

Anakin Was Clearly Dead

He became a force ghost at the end of RotJ. And Luke bar-be-qued his body. There's no coming back from the dead in the Star Wars universe... right?

Okay, Anakin WAS similar to Jesus Christ, being born of a virgin, conceived by the force and all, but a resurrection into an evil villain after all that? That would be supremely lame... like bad soap opera lame.

Kylo Ren Has Vador's Ashes

When Kylo Ren takes off his helmet, he puts it in a bed of ashes. It's Vader's remains.

So Who Is Snoke?

Several other theories are orbiting around out there. That's no moon...

I aint afraid o' no ghost...

Some have suggested that he's a force ghost of someone like Vader, Darth Bane, or Darth Plagueis. However, in the movie, Snoke's image was clearly being projected from a light source.

Furthermore, the image flickered when the planet started collapsing at the end of the movie.

Up sith creek without a paddle... You're so Bain, I bet you think this song is about you.

J.J. Abrams has flatly stated that Snoke is not a sith Lord. So that doesn't work with him being Bane, Plagueis, Vader, or even Sidious.

I have to say, he does resemble Darth Bane.

However, Bane was a human and would be over a thousand years old. Still, if he figured out how to use the force to remain alive, that might be a possibility. Snoke looks like a really old guy.

And I like the idea of the Emperor surviving his fall by using the force or something, but this guy doesn't seem to fit him. And again, that would be another lame twist.

And as far as Plagueis, he was a Muun according to the books, but that doesn't mean much anymore. And he looks like him sort of as well, except his head isn't as long.

Still, the fact that John Williams played the same theme during his scenes as he did when Palpatine was telling Anakin the story is quite revealing.


Boba Fettching

As far as Boba Fett, his motivations for revenge against the Jedi fit, and he did escape the sarlacc pit in the books. However, this seems like quite a stretch. If it turned out to be him, it would rank up there with the revelation of midichlorians.

Something Borrowed, Something Blue...

Maybe he really is just someone new on the scene... although, that actually seems anti-climactic now that I think about it...

Maybe when Jar Jar reveals himself as the supreme Sith Lord, and if Snoke really isn't sith, thenit would be great if Snoke and Jar Jar get into an epic villain battle!

Sorry, I got carried away there... but seriously, that would be freakin' AWESOME!
