Ever since Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released, fans have been coming up with theories that could shed light to Supreme Leader Snoke's true identity. We've already heard the popular Darth Plagueis theory, but this new short fan theory suggests that they've uncovered the truth about Snoke's origins.

We already know that Anakin Skywalker s Kylo Ren's grandfather, but what if the man who became Darth Vader was also behind the creation of Kylo's master, Supreme Leader Snoke?

Here's what Redditor Yootob said about his theory:

"I have worked out who Snoke really is. Betrayed and left for dead, classic villain backstory..."

According to his theory, Snoke is the Youngling seen in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith in the scene where evil Anakin enters a Jedi temple and starts killing, even the most junior Padawans.

So what if Anakin/Vader deliberately let one of the Younglings live, taking him under his wing and training him in his own image, teaching him to hate the Jedi and embrace the Dark Side?

That would explain why no survivor was found, but I don't completely buy this theory that a massacre by a Sith would instantly turn any surviving Padawan into the Dark Side. Obi-Wan even said, "Not even the Younglings survived".

So what do you think about this theory about Snoke's origins? Do you think there's truth to this?
