Behind-the-Scenes Details Hint at Supreme Leader Snoke's Opulent Playboy Lifestyle
Star Wars: The Force Awakens was infuriatingly short on details with Supreme Leader Snoke, to the point that we still don't know whether he's an actual giant or just a guy with an enormous holographic ego. Pretty much all we know is that he shops at the same thrift store where Emperor Palpatine got his iconic robes. But seriously, he's in the movie for a minute and a half:



However, according to new details from fansite Making Star Wars, Snoke's wardrobe is much more varied than we'd all assumed:

Opening quote
"Snoke wears a gold silky robe with a very ornate pattern on it in The Last Jedi...What is also interesting is his slippers are like "jester shoes" or "genie slippers." They're also gold because you have to match if you that far in with the gold robe. I think the robe and shoes are lined in red too so he's stylin'. He has a very "blood and gold" vibe to him...
Closing quote


We never thought we'd hear the words "genie slippers" and "Snoke" in the same sentence, but here we are. The description of Snoke's throne is another surprise:

Opening quote
"I don't have a lot of details on his throne room but it is opulent. This guy cares about money. Back when he was a good looking young person, he was probably a playboy of sorts. Unlike the Sith, I think wealth means a lot to Supreme Leader Snoke based on his appearance. They based Snoke's design on a marble aesthetic and I think his throne room has white marble and gold trim."
Closing quote

For the ruler of the galaxy, the Emperor always seemed happy with his swivel chair and an austere little room with a window. It certainly sounds like Snoke's better dressed than Palpatine, with a lot more panache and style. Considering that his appearance in The Force Awakens makes Snoke seem like a discount version of the Emperor, it's exciting to hear that this time around he'll be differentiating himself from the former Dark Lord of the Sith. Disney has been keeping clear of the shinier, sleeker designs of the prequel trilogy thus far in favor of the dirtier aesthetic of the original movies, but it sounds like they're doing some experiments with merging the two. Either way, we're looking forward to more Snoke, especially now that we get to see him training Kylo.
