Star Wars 8: Does THIS prove Snoke is ALIVE? What the Force is going on? SEVEN huge clues

The Last Jedi pulled the rug out from fans' feet in many, many ways. It's safe to say that Disney and Lucasfilm misdirected Star Wars fans over the last two years and then completely turned things on their head when the movie was released.

Apart from Rey's parents, no subject was more intensely debated than Snoke – and the shocking events of Episode 8 send fans into a spiral of fury and disappointment.

Except, even that was just another misdirection, according to a new report which has racked up a stupendous 600,000 fan views in less than 24 hours. But are fans convinced?

Was Snoke the greatest case of big screen "Snoke" and mirrors, or was his ending simply another illusion?

There are seven main points to this new argument.

1. Don't believe everything you see in The Last Jedi.

Remember, Luke's entire Force projection across the galaxy?

Snoke is more than powerful enough to do the same. He was able to exert his Force power over Hux during the movie's opening scenes without being present, or even in the same part of the galaxy. Why can't he do the same also in the later scenes?

What if his presence in the throne room was an illusion also? All the scenes with Kylo Ren and then torturing Rey, could still be There is another very strong argument for this.

2. Remember how Luke looked in his projection?

He was younger, with darker hair and beard. In the projection, the Force user can alter their appearance. 

Snoke looked decrepit and heavily scarred in the hologram appearances during The Force Awakens. These are transmitted by technology and so can not be changed. However, during the throne rooms scenes, he appears less frail. His face is less scarred, that terrible one by his mouth and the ones one his right cheek, for example, are completely gone.

Is Snoke actually somewhere else, possibly still on the ship, projecting his image?

3. Why go to so much trouble?

It is increasingly accepted that Disney and Rian Johnson may have trolled fans by building false expectations in order to shock them with the real revelations.

Even so, why build so much detail into Snoke? New visual guides detail everyting from his black kyber crystal ring to his slippers. This could just be a cynical merchandising push, but it feels like there is so much more to exlore.

4. Where are the Knights of Ren?

So heavily hyped after Episode 7, are they somewhere else with Snoke, waiting for the big reveal in Episode 9?

5. Darth Maul did it so why not Snoke?

The popular Sith villan was cut clean in half in the prequel trilogy. In later novelisations and the animated series, Star Wars Rebels, he was revealed to have survived.

Snoke is clearly far more powerful than Darth Maul, so why couldn't he? He had been goading Kylo for so long, he must have been aware that was apotentila for his apprentice to turn on him. Surely he would have been prepared?

6. Kylo Ren and Rey's connection.

Snoke gloated that he had created and manipulated this link between them, activating it as he chose to manipulate their actions. After his dramatic death, the final scenes show that they can still sense and see each other. Is this proof Snoke is still alive?

7. Rian Johnson's 'Wikipedia' comments.

The director warned fans not to expect too much background detail in The Last Jedi, saying the movie was not a Wikipedia page and would only reveal what was relevant to the scene. Some now believe this actually means the big revealtions are still to come.

The Last Jedi novelisation is expected to add much more texture (including inner monologues) to many of the key scenes, as was done for the previous movie.

CONCLUSION: It may seem foolish to start speculating and building theories when so many were just debunked by the latest movie.

Star Wars Youtube Channel Star Wars Theory is sure Snoke is not dead, but even many of the channel's loyal followers are not convinced this time.

The Last Jedi novelisation is expected in March but it may be another two long years before fans finally find out whetehr Snoke really is gone or not.
