Star Wars fans want to know more about the Big Bad in the Sequel Trilogy, Supreme Leader Snoke, but it sounds like they may be waiting a long time to find out what they want.
Vanity Fair is doing an AmA on Reddit, and they explained that we probably won’t get much about Snoke in Episode VIII:
“I asked Rian Johnson about Snokeâ€”Who/what is he?â€”and Rian was fairly up front in saying that Snoke is not a character he particularly gets into in TLJ. Hmmm.”
Lucasfilm has been dropping big hints about Snoke in the novels recently. As of right now the best money is that he’s someone The First Order encounters when the Empire flees into the Unknown Regions following the events of the Aftermath trilogy. Thrawn explains that there is some kind of threat in the Unknown Regions, and all signs are pointing to Snoke being related to that.
