It's been three weeks since the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and it's incredible how fans are still discussing the various questions it raised -- Who are Rey's parents? Who exactly is Supreme Leader Snoke?

Andy Serkis, the actor behind Snoke, may have debunked the theory that Snoke is Darth Plagueis as this video explained, but there's another theory that you might fascinating or ridiculous.

The theory suggests that Supreme Leader Snoke was actually Anakin Skywalker, AKA Darth Vader. I don't think this theory is true, but like other theories, this would be interseting to discuss.

What makes this theory convincing is the fact that the facial scars of Snoke almost perfectly align with the facial scars that we saw on Darth Vader when he removed his helmet at the end of Return of the Jedi. Here's an image from seventhofmars:

It's hard for me to think that Snoke is really Vader. There was concept art that was done for the film, and it features Anakin Skywalker's force ghost. One of the artists that illustrated it explained that when Anakin died, he didn't fully go into the Light side of the Force. He explained how Anakin would flow back and forth between both Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader.
