The ONLY Snoke Theory Using Canon Evidence (currently...) Is Snoke General Hux's Father?
The Alliance of Star Wars Fanatics Site (for a more detailed writeup): http://blog.taoswf.com/?p=281 Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheAllianceofStarWarsFanatics/ In this video, I dive deep into the new Star Wars canon to answer the question that everyone is asking - Who is Snoke? I theorize that Brendol Hux (General Hux's father) is Supreme Leader Snoke. I present several points that I feel are strong evidence to prove this. Please keep in mind there are lots of spoilers here! If you are avoiding spoilers for Aftermath, Aftermath: Life Debt, Bloodline, The Force Awakens (book/movie), Servants of the Empire: The Secret Academy, or are avoiding details from The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary, please watch later when you are ready!
