Supreme Leader Snoke's physical appearance is revealed in a new sketch based on information from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The villain is one of the most intriguing aspects of the sequel trilogy, with no shortage of rumors about his "true" nature surfacing online since his debut in 2015's The Force Awakens. During that film, Snoke was teased by way of appearing via hologram. And though Episode VIII writer/director Rian Johnson has said Snoke remains a mystery in his film, audiences will obviously be spending more time with the First Order ruler. From the looks of it, Snoke will be seen for the first time in the flesh.
The Last Jedi has been subject to quite a few toy leaks in recent weeks, and one of the most notable was a Snoke LEGO mini-figure, which highlighted his elaborate golden robe and skin color. Now, a far more detailed look at the mysterious dark side user has been unveiled, giving fans an even better idea of what to expect.
Making Star Wars teamed up with artist Jared Jones and shared a "really accurate" drawing of Snoke. You can check it out for yourself in the space below:
As you can see, despite being an alien, Snoke bears much resemblance to a human being with fairly pinkish skin and bright blue eyes. Making Star Wars notes that he has age spots, as well as the numerous wounds on his face. Other attributes for Snoke include "really long arms with really arthritic looking hands" and a pinky curling inwards. Additionally, he's said to have whitish blonde eyebrows and eyelashes. This illustration is obviously a bust of the character, but it's possible fans see him in full come December, as previous rumors suggested Snoke would be brought to life via a combination of practical and digital effects. Even if his screen time in the final film is minimal, audiences should get a tour of his fancy throne room, seeing the antagonist in action somewhat.
The marketing campaign for The Force Awakens did an admirable job keeping Snoke under wraps, as only his voice was heard in some trailers and TV spots. It will be interesting to see how he's handled in Last Jedi advertising once that heats up. On one hand, Snoke was seen in Episode VII, so he could make some appearances in any new footage that's unveiled between now and the winter. However, the official reveal of Snoke in the flesh might be something Lucasfilm wants to save for the premiere, and will use their bounty of bankable characters for promotional purposes while the Supreme Leader lingers in the shadows.
