It's no secret that Star Wars fans who have seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens know that there are already countless theories about Rey, Kylo Ren, and even that of Luke. There is one theory in particular that has had fans buzzing since before the premiere of the film and that is the identity of Supreme Leader Snoke. The theory revolves around the idea that Snoke is in fact Emperor Palpatine aka Darth Sidious' former master, Darth Plagueis.
Now, the film has been out for about a week and fans have found the most damning of evidence that could prove that Supreme Leader Snoke is in fact Darth Plagueis. The evidence itself comes from the legendary composer, John Williams. The soundtrack's score known as, "Snoke", that plays throughout Snoke's scenes is incredibly similar to the score from Revenge of the Sith soundtrack, "Palpatine's Teachings", which plays when Palpatine is telling the story of Darth Plagueis "The Wise".
Fans have compiled as much evidence as they can in order to support this theory, most likely due to the fact that Darth Plagueis, who is now officially canon because of Revenge of the Sith, is one of the most if not the most powerful Sith lord to have ever existed. Much of the evidence has to do with the similar appearances between the two and how Snoke appeared out of nowhere to take control of the Empire, now The First Order. It looks this piece of evidence from John Williams might be the key to everything. Take a listen for yourself.
They are pretty much identical. Now, one can argue that John Williams probably forgot about his Revenge of the Sith score and simply used it again or that he recycled the score intentionally. Although, a composer such as John Williams would never do something such as that. It's also known that Williams likes to leave clues in his soundtracks and this could be his and J.J. Abrams way of telling us who Snoke really is. What do you think? Do you think John Williams and J.J. Abrams are telling us that Snoke is in fact Plagueis?
