You know when there is a hot rumor or spoiler and fans lose their minds because they feel like they have the punchline before anything is released? I do not have a rumor or spoiler, in fact the only thing I have is a vivid imagination and a theory about how Disney is going to try to save face with the sequel trilogy using beloved characters and a hot newer Star Wars show (The Mandalorian.)
Back in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, we see Kylo Ren venture to the Sith planet Exegol. He is looking for something but winds up finding Emperor Palpatine. Palpatine goes on to explain that he has been in control the entire time and even created Ren’s boss Supreme Leader, Snoke. We even see clones in pods of multiple Snoke’s.
Season 2 of The Mandalorian the group stumbles upon a clone in a pod. Though the face is blurred, it is clearly a clone. This is where my theory comes into play.
Obi Wan Kenobi takes place 10 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith. The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett for that matter are set in the years after Return of the Jedi.
I believe, Obi Wan Kenobi at some point will stumble on a clone in a pod. I believe the clone in the pod will be none other than a Supreme Leader Snoke. This will be to show that Palpatine had been working on perfecting a clone for some time. It will also show that he did perfect one and give some weight to The Rise of Skywalker.
In my opinion this is how Disney will try to sooth things over with die hard Star Wars fans left with a sour taste after the conclusion of the sequel trilogy. Will it work? Will it sooth them over? That remains to be seen. Disney is wise **IF** my theory is correct to use Obi Wan Kenobi to illustrate Palpatine and Snoke clones. After all Obi Wan Kenobi is a beloved fan favorite of Star Wars fans everywhere.
