I do get the sense that the stories of the Ghost crew need to resolve in some way, shape or form. Does that happen before the events of A NEW HOPE? I don't know if it has to be. But having two Jedi plus a fallen Sith running around when we were supposed to be operating under the premise that all of the Jedi are gone is something that I've been having a tough time accepting. Granted, the Star Wars universe is big and it does seem plausible that a few individuals could have gone into hiding. But now that Vader, the Inquisitors and the Emporer might be aware of Kanan and Ezra? I think their days are numbered.
This is not directed at anyone person, Scott. But I think that Episode VIII director Rian Johnson topped all of the Snoke speculation that came out of Episode VII perfectly: “Your Snoke Theory Sucks.” I think I want to see where this goes. I want to be a little surprised by the revelation when it comes.
Everyone has been theorizing about who Snoke is, or where he came from. Maybe the real explanation is that we have just never seen him in any form before. Maybe there is something for Luke Skywalker to reveal about Snoke, much in the same way that Obi-Wan explained Vader's origins to Luke. Because all of this theorizing about Snoke being some previously established character makes me think of what happened in Dark Horse's LEGACY title with Darth Krayt. Granted, A'sharad Hett wasn't a major player in the Dark Horse REPUBLIC title, but it seemed a little bit like shoe-horning the characters into that new situation.
A theme that keeps getting reiterated by the people at Lucasfilm is that they're looking to make the universe bigger, and not smaller. And I think that tying Snoke to any other previously established character absolutely makes the universe smaller.
