Here's all the facts and trivia we know about Supreme Leader Snoke. This is to say even though The Force Awakens has been released, we know hardly anything about the character!
- Played by King Kong himself, Andy Serkis, Snoke is The Force Awaken's Emperor Palpatine.
- Appearing to Kylo Ren and Hux as a hologram, he appears to be a disfigured humaniod character.
- We know he can sense things as they happen in real time as he appears to inform Kylo of the comings and goings of the galaxy in good time.
- He appears to have exerted a strong influence over Kylo Ren, so much so that he abandon his training with Luke, killed his fellow apprentices and became his protege.
- Andy Serkis suggested he was seven feet tall.
- While he's clearly in charge of The First Order regime, he appears to have some kind of connection to the Knights of Ren.
- Snoke was the one who ordered Hux to destroy the New Republic using the Star Killer base.
- Snoke bears a scar across his face. This suggests he's been 'in the wars' at some point.
