Is this who Supreme Leader Snoke really is? The rumor suggests that Grand Moff Tarkin hasn't been confirmed as dead. It also states that Tarkin would be the person to form The First Order, given his high rank and knowledge of the empire. He also was seen at the end of episode 3 standing with Darth Vader and the Emperor while the Death Star was under construction.
Now here comes why these rumors aren't true. JJ Abrams has said that Snoke has been around for a long time. He said that he was around during the original trilogy and the prequels, and even earlier, but after episode 6 is when he came out of the shadows and got his power. As he stated, Snoke has been around for a very long time, for all we know he's been around for one-hundred years! Tarkin is just an ordinary person, from what we saw of him in A New Hope, he doesn't have the force, so how would he be able to train Kylo Ren? There is one piece of certainty interesting "evidence" that they are the same person. They have similar facial details. Take a look.
I will agree that they do look alike, but there's just too much evidence and knowledge that they can't be the same person. It's an interesting rumor, and if it does end up being true I may just shit my pants! Let me know what you guys think down below. Do you agree? Or do you have a different theory?
