John Williams may have hinted at Supreme Leader Snoke’s identity in The Force Awakens’ score


Everyone still has millions of questions about the new Star Wars film and many of them revolve around the shadowy authority figure of the First Order, Supreme Leader Snoke. There are many fan theories of who this sinister figure might be, and many of them suggest that he could be the fabled sith lord Darth Plagueis. In the prequels, Darth Sidious tells the story of Darth Plagueis and how powerful he was with the force.

“Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith so powerful and so wise, he could use the Force to influence the midi-chlorians to create life. He had such a knowledge of the dark side, he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.”

It is believed that Sidious murdered Plagueis in his sleep when he had learned all he could from his master. While he is assumed to be long since dead, many fans believe that he is alive and that Snoke is Plagueis.

The most recent evidence comes from a fan who has pointed out a similarity between The Force Awakens and Revenge of the Sith. Both scores were composed by John Williams and if you listen to the track entitled “Snoke”, there is a similarity between that theme and the one that can be heard in Revenge of the Sith when Sidious talks about Plagueis.

Some can argue that Williams may have just reused part of the Episode III score in the film unknowingly, or maybe he knows more than we think, and this was just a clue to the identity of who Snoke really is.

You can listen to the scene in question as well as the score from both movies in the clips below. Let us know if you think there is a similarity between the two.
