STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Novel Finally Sheds Some Light On Snoke's Origin And Ties To Luke Skywalker

Many fans walked out of Star Wars: The Last Jedi frustrated that the sequel failed to shed any light on Supreme Leader Snoke's backstory but the newly released novelisation reportedly reveals much more.

Heading into Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it's fair to say we all expected to learn much more about Supreme Leader Snoke's origin story and how he's connected to characters like Luke Skywalker and Emperor Palpatine. Unfortunately, the movie did nothing to shed light on any of that and it's one of the biggest reasons why fans of the franchise walked out feeling dissatisfied with Rian Johnson's work.

However, a new report reveals that the upcoming novelisation (which Johnson actually contributed to) reveals some very interesting details about the character. Apparently, Snoke once connected with a younger Luke Skywalker who was in the process of searching for Jedi lore, something we know is the case after playing the Star Wars Battlefront II video game. It's not clear if this meeting took place in person or via the Force but it reportedly ended up giving Snoke a deep respect for the Jedi Master. 

Snoke, meanwhile, was a gifted Force user since a young age and used that to see his dark future, something which presumably turned him against Luke Skywalker (after all, seeing that someone is going to be your enemy down the line is going to make you hate them). This report also claims that Snoke was so powerful that he could conceal his existence from the Emperor and that he used his contingency plan - "Operation Cinder" - to take control of the Empire and make it The First Order.

The novelisation hits stores next week so we'll no doubt learn much more in the very near future.
