Supreme Leader Snoke is one of the biggest mysteries of the new Star Wars trilogy, even though he’s apparently not as big as he appeared to be in The Force Awakens. Where did he come from? What species is he? How can he still speak with his face all messed up like that? How did he get that giant crack in his forehead? We won’t be getting ay insight into Snoke’s origins in The Last Jedi, simply because director Rian Johnson figured it wasn’t necessary — but we will be seeing a lot more of him. And maybe not a hologram this time.

In The Force Awakens, Snoke appears as a giant entity, towering over Kylo Ren and General Hux in his dark throne room. As it turns out, that Snoke was a hologram, blown up to giant proportions probably because the real guy likes to be intimidating to his underlings. He’s still pretty tall, and we might be seeing him in the flesh in the upcoming movie — or as in-the-flesh as a motion-capture Andy Serkis can get. Today, we got two new photos of what he looks like in a well-lit room, and, well, let’s just say we prefer looking at this guy in the dark.


Plus, some stamps with which to send terrifying postcards to your loved ones:


All in all, Snoke is one gross-looking dude, and, boy, we sure can’t wait to see what nefarious activities he gets up to in Episode VIII. I just hope he gets that big crack fixed one of these days.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters December 15.
