“I felt a great disturbance in the Force as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I feel something terrible has happened.” – Obi-Wan Kenobi
Star Wars Rebels executive producer became the Death Star and obliterated Alderaan today, figuratively speaking. Filoni debunked a number of fan theories surrounding the identity of the First Order’s Supreme Leader Snoke, who made his menancing debut in The Force Awakens.
Speaking with ComicBook.com, Filoni was to the point debunking any possible connections to the Star Wars Rebels cast and Supreme Leader Snoke’s identity:
I like reading the fan theories, and when I read them, I think, ‘Well, there’s no possible reason that that can’t be true, it’s just not true.’
Many fans have theorized that Ezra Bridger may actually turn out to be Supreme Leader Snoke. Bridger is a young force-sensitive Padawan under the tutelage of Jedi Knight Kanan Jarrus. Bridger has shown he is powerful in the Force controlling a number of large creatures. However, he’s been tempted by the Dark Side and even sided with Darth Maul a few times.
While Filoni denied Bridger or anyone from Star Wars Rebels is Supreme Leader Snoke he did confess if he wasn’t working on Star Wars Rebels, he would have his own Snoke theory!
You love the fans. I’m one of them. If I wasn’t here working on Star Wars, I’ll bet you I would have a bang-old Snoke theory of my own. I don’t fault them for coming. I think we want them to come up with stuff because it means they’re engaged. It shows how much they love it.
I’m sure even with Filoni’s blunt statement about Bridger and the Star Wars Rebels cast, many will still suspect Bridger of being Snoke.
Who do you think Supreme Leader Snoke is?
